A beautifully presented extended Cotswold stone cottage in a great spot in sought after Hawkesbury Upton with four bedrooms, lovely living spaces and a long rear garden
The Cottage is a pretty double fronted cottage situated in a quiet position within the sought after village of Hawkesbury Upton. This address enjoys a good local community, with a village store and a well regarded primary school within easy reach and country walks just along the lane. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold Stone and has been the subject of comprehensive improvement and clever extension, with beautifully presented accommodation arranged over two floors. An entrance area, 18’ sitting room with fireplace, bathroom and
first class 19’ kitchen/dining room are on the ground floor. The kitchen is of particular merit – it has a glazed Solarlux extension, contemporary kitchen units and plenty of space to cook, eat and relax. A landing and four bedrooms are above, on the first floor. The property oozes character, and these original features are highlighted by tasteful décor.
The interior is complimented by a lovely rear garden. This has clearly been the subject of considerable care and attention during the current owners tenure, with a great entertaining area directly behind the house that connects brilliantly with the kitchen once the bifold doors are open. A wood store is tucked around the side of the extension, and there is a gated right of way here for the benefit of the property. Steps then lead up past well planted borders to the rest of the plot. A graveled path leads up through the lawned garden past a lovely ‘creeping amber’ tree the was originally purchased by the current owner from Westonbirt Arboretum in 1993. The garden continues, with large garden store (a repurposed preformed garage) on the left and a productive growing area at the top. There is a great outlook from this area over the neighbouring fields.
