A well presented Cotswold stone and red brick three storey cottage in a quiet no through road in lovely Newmarket with three bedrooms, a 15’ square sitting room, parking, a small garden and super view
A well presented semi detached cottage situated in a lovely position above Nailsworth. This location, on the sunny side of the Newmarket Valley, allows for easy access to the shops and amenities of the town with a lovely outlook across the valley to Shortwood at the front. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone and red brick, with character accommodation arranged over three floors. A porch, 15’ sitting room with fireplace and wood burning stove, kitchen and dining room/conservatory are on the ground floor, with a landing, two bedrooms and a bathroom with contemporary fittings above, on the first floor. The largest 17’ bedroom is at the top of the house. The windows to the front take in both the open outlook across the valley and the sun, with the house facing due south.
The interior is complemented by parking and a rear garden. The parking is to the front, with steps leading up to the cottage. Steps lead out from the back of the house up to the rear, with a gravelled terrace here with space for a barbeque and a table and chairs, and a planted border behind. Prospective buyers could look to create a further terrace over the garden room subject to planning and building regulation permission.
