An extended detached Cotswold stone cottage is a lovely location with three bedrooms, good living spaces, parking and terraced gardens with a super outlook over the valley
Bankside Cottage is a perfect example of a detached Cotswold cottage situated in a lovely location at Washpool, Horsley. This elevated position is very much part of the good local community with a well regarded primary school, community shop and public house just up the road and country walks on the doorstep. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone under a pitched tiled roof and has been extended and improved in recent years, with character accommodation arranged over two floors. An entrance area, large 19′ kitchen/dining room, cloakroom/WC and 18′ sitting room with fireplace are on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the kitchen to the first floor, with a landing, three bedrooms and a bathroom on this level. Every window enjoys a ‘green’ outlook, with the view at the front of the property of particular merit.
The interior is complemented by landscaped gardens that also take in the outlook over the valley and an extra area of land across the road with parking for several cars and space to build a good shed or store. The gardens are to the side and rear of the house, with a good space for a table and chairs to the side and terraced gardens that stretch up the hill behind.
