A pretty detached Cotswold stone character cottage set well away from main road traffic and car noise in a popular lane in Avening with a beautiful garden and a detached annex outbuilding
A pretty detached cottage situated in a quiet, elevated position well away from traffic in Avening. This popular village enjoys a good local community, with easy access to both Tetbury and Nailsworth and countryside walks on the doorstep. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone with well presented character accommodation arranged over three floors.
You walk into a characterful sitting/dining room with wood burning stove and exposed stone walls, with the kitchen behind this, at the back of the house. This room has a vaulted ceiling and re-fitted units, with the staircase to the first floor in this space too. They lead up to the first floor and a large double bedroom, with a further bedroom and bathroom at the top of the house, on the second floor. The windows to the front look out on to the lovely garden, with retained character features complemented by tasteful décor.
The property benefits from lovely landscaped gardens and a fantastic detached timber built outbuilding. The property is well away from the road (the owners leave their cars up the lane, in the layby, or in the village and walk to the house) and therefore less effected by traffic noise than some properties, and the owner has made the very most of the outside space. The property is accessed via a gravelled path, with a gate that leads to the property, with a right of way past the front door for the neighbouring properties to walk to their homes. A path leads up through the garden to the top of the plot with beautifully planned borders to either side, planted with a variety of establish plants, and lawns. There is a sitting area at the top of the garden – a perfect spot for a table and chairs- with a super view back to the cottage the countryside beyond. The outbuilding is situated here, and this detached insulated building with living space, kitchen area and shower room is used as an annexe, and is sometimes let out via airbnb to generate income. The is a useful area to the side of the property with a wood store and space for bins etc.
