4 bedroom town house for sale



Property Description

Full description

THE PROPERTY Number 2 Cottons Lane is a thoroughly refurbished and most interesting natural stone and stone tiled Period house enjoying a stunning southerly rural outlook over the Cutwell Valley and yet within a short walking distance of the town centre.

The accommodation is arranged on four floors and consists briefly of entrance hall with sitting room and kitchen/breakfast room at this level. A staircase then goes down to a snug, a dining room, a day room and a cloakroom. There are two bedrooms and the family bathroom on the first floor whilst a staircase then leads up to the top floor which incorporates master bedroom having en-suite shower room and guest bedroom.

The property has gas fired radiator central heating and halogen down lighting in many rooms, a major additional feature is a substantial cabin at the foot of the garden which would serve as a guest suite or 'work from home office', or is easily suited as a family room complete with TV and hi-fi points, heating and plumbing.

We would strongly recommend an early appointment to view this individual family home that is so full of character. 

DIRECTIONS From our office in the centre of town, the property is easily reached on foot by walking down Church Street and taking the second right turn into West Street and first left into Cottons Lane where you walk along the back of a row of cottages. Find the archway leading to the front of the cottages, turn left, walk past numbers 6 and 4 and number 2 will be seen directly ahead.

AMENITIES Tetbury, often referred to as the entrance to the Cotswolds, and once voted by Country Life magazine as the third most desirable town in the country, is a thriving historic Cotswold market town situated less than half an hour from both the M4 and M5 motorways and within easy reach of Cirencester, Cheltenham, Bath, Bristol and Swindon. There is good access to Kemble Railway Station with regular Intercity services to London and other regional commercial centres.

Tetbury is well known for its royal houses with HRH The Prince of Wales at Highgrove House, and Gatcombe Park the home of The Princess Royal both close by. Tetbury boasts an exciting range of shops including specialist boutiques, city standard delicatessens, the Highgrove Shop and many fine antique shops. The town has an excellent variety of hotels, restaurants, cafes and brasseries offering a mouth watering range of cuisine.

A visit to the Tourist Information Office will provide you with a map of the area showing some of our local attractions including the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum, or the nearby Cotswold Water Park or perhaps the Abbey and Abbey House Gardens in Malmesbury.
