A handsome detached Grade II Listed Cotswold stone property in a lovely location on the edge of sought after Uley with character features, spacious, flexible accommodation, parking and good gardens
An attractive detached Grade II listed character house in a first class location close to the centre of Uley. This location allows for easy access to the village shop, excellent primary school and Prema Arts centre, with country walks on the doorstep. This gabled property is built from Cotswold stone and is very striking, with spacious flexible accommodation arranged over three floors. We understand that it is one of the oldest houses in the village, with reference to a dwelling on the plot in the Domesday book. The property has been the subject of renovation and significant improvement during the current owners tenure. An open plan entrance area, dining room and 15’ sitting room with lovely fireplace are on the ground floor, with a central staircase that leads down to a kitchen/breakfast room and useful room that could serve as a study, snug or fourth bedroom on this lower ground floor. The staircase also leads up to the first floor, with a landing, bathroom and three bedrooms on this level. Every window enjoys an open, ‘green’ view, with the outlook at the back over the garden to Shadwell and surrounding countryside of particular merit.
The property benefits from good gardens and parking. The property is approached by a gravel drive. This belongs to the property but the neighbouring house has a vehicular right of access over it and the parking space is opposite the sitting room window. The gardens are at the rear of the property, with a sitting area directly behind the house. A long level lawn then stretches away from the house, with a greenhouse towards the bottom of this area. There is a wider area of garden at the end of the plot and the owner informs us that there has previously been planning
permission to create further parking, or potentially a garage here, subject to renewed consent.
