A charming and extended two bedroom cottage that dates back to the 18th century, set in a glorious village location in the village of Randwick with amazing views and pretty garden
A well-presented cottage set in a brilliant position in the community and village of Randwick. Randwick benefits from a playground and sports field, a school, a village pub and has an annual local festival. The property is built using traditional methods and the accommodation is arranged over three floors. On the ground floor, accommodation comprises a living room with woodburner and Velux windows allowing for plenty of natural light, a kitchen/dining room with integrated dishwasher, oven and hob and a bathroom. On the first floor is the second bedroom with an en-suite w/c. The main bedroom is found on the top floor also with a Velux window. Windows to the front of the property have a fantastic South Easterly aspect so is enjoyed in both of the bedrooms and the garden. The property benefits from gas central heating and double glazing as well as character features throughout the property from exposed beams and vaulted ceilings to integrated storage and thick cottage style walls and window sills. The current vendor has improved the property by putting a partition wall in to create bedroom two and installing a dishwasher in the kitchen but mainly in the garden by erecting a new shed/workshop, landscaping, putting in new raised beds, a log store and fencing.
The interior is complemented by having a good size, mature and well thought out front garden. The garden consists of a patio seating area, wood store, mature shrubs and well established plants, flowers and trees, a summer house, shed and raised beds making a fantastic garden suitable for any keen gardener who could spend hours pottering and making it their own.
Randwick benefits from sports fields, a playground, a well-established primary school, village hall, local pub, a parish church, a weekly bus route and nearby walks. Nearby Cashes Green has a couple of local convenience stores, hairdressers, two parks and takeaway food options. Stroud town has a wide range of shops and amenities, including supermarkets, local speciality stores, a hospital, state and private schools, a leisure and sports centre, award winning weekly farmers market and a main line railway station with inter city services travelling to London (Paddington). Cirencester (10 miles), Cheltenham (15 miles) and Swindon (25 miles) are all within comfortable driving distance.
“It’s been just shy of three years we’ve been here and loved every minute of it (except the commute to Bath; hence the move now) It’s bright, warm, cosy and although it does seem small; you wouldn’t believe how many people we’ve had here (kids, cousins, friends etc). We are in a Conservation Area and we put the shed up last year (made for us by a company in Bristol, and after running our own walled garden/nursery and restaurant business for ten years; oh, we know our sheds!!) There’s no power to it but there is power to the summer house so it’d be easy to spur off to power the shed as a workshop. Jo’s very proud of the garden, it is a wildlife haven and we can give a list of all the plants and a management regime (if needed).”
We are informed that all mains services are connected to the property.
