Details

Description

This pretty property sits in the heart of the popular village of King’s Stanley in a terraced row of red brick cottages and is believed to date back to 1850, one of the oldest cottages in the row. There is a real sense of community in the village and an impressive range of amenities within walking distance, including a school, pub, a Co-op and a general stores, hairdressers, garage, a sports club and village hall and the popular Boho Bakery. The Cotswold Way also runs through the village, while Penn Woods and Selsley Common are just up the road.

A tiled entrance lobby leads into the cosy sitting room which has lots of character with a feature fireplace and hearth with working woodburning stove, beams and exposed brickwork and a bay window to the front. This leads through into the kitchen/diner, which is a large sunny room with double doors overlooking the south facing garden. This room, which is a real sun trap, would benefit from some updating and is an extension to the original old cottage. A downstairs utility/shower room leads off from the kitchen/diner and houses the boiler, which is about 5 years old. The original wooden staircase leads up from the lobby area to the first floor and there also original beams in this area. On the first floor there is a spacious modern family bathroom with a bath and separate shower cubicle with its own window and also a double bedroom with storage and views towards Selsley church. Open wooden stairs lead to the top floor, where there is a large, light attic room with views towards Frocester Hill. This room has undergone significant remodelling by the present owners to create a lovely airy room, including raising the ceiling height, insulation work and installing two large Velux windows with blackout blinds. They also created a large bank of built-in storage cupboards. The current owners have also re-roofed the cottage and installed double glazed windows throughout, as well as adding a new front door. The property also benefits from gas central heating throughout.
