A much improved and stylish detached cottage on the edge of the ancient town of Northleach.


Northleach is a small historic town situated about nine miles from the market town of Cirencester. Tucked away from the busy A40, between undulating hills, it stands at a crossroads on the Roman Fosse Way, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The streets in and around the ancient market place are rich in architectural interest ranging from half-timbered Tudor houses to merchants' stores. Northleach has an excellent variety of shops including an award winning butcher, a vintner, a chemist and a post office. The town also benefits from a doctor's surgery, junior school, nursery, a magnificent medieval church and the well regarded Wheatsheaf Inn. More extensive shopping, leisure and educational facilities can be found in Cheltenham and Oxford. A lively charter market is held every Wednesday and the Charter Fair is held annually in June. The annual Court Leet is a very special occasion in Northleach as it is one of only a handful of Leets in the country that have an unbroken record of meeting through the centuries.

Communications in general are excellent with the M40, M4 and M5 motorways all within easy travelling distance. There is a regular bus service to Moreton-in-Marsh and Cheltenham. Regular trains into Oxford and London Paddington depart from Kingham Station (12 miles). Sporting and recreational facilities are well catered for in the area with golf courses at Naunton Downs, Burford and Cheltenham. Hunting with the Cotswold and Vale of White Horse. National Hunt Racing is at Cheltenham, Stratford, Warwick and Worcester.


March Cottage is built of stone and rendered elevations and is one-and-a-half storeys set beneath pitched and tiled roofs. The current owners have improved the property considerably, undertaking an extensive programme of extension, alteration and upgrading to provide a charming and comfortable town property.

The property is set back from the High Street, within the town's conservation area, between principally period buildings and is within easy walking distance of the town's amenities.

The stylish living accommodation provides an attractive tiled entrance hall with access to a guest cloakroom. To the front of the property is a spacious sitting room with bay window and log burning stove on a raised hearth. There is an well-appointed kitchen/family room comprehensively fitted with cabinets and integrated appliances. Also on the ground floor is a useful laundry room with new boiler. From the hall a staircase rises to the first floor landing giving access to an attractive master bedroom with en suite shower room having high quality fittings and handmade tiles. There are two further bedrooms and an attractive family bathroom also with high quality fittings.

Unusually the property benefits from ample off street parking set behind timber five bar gates. To the rear of the property is an enclosed garden incorporating a terrace with steps up to a lawned area with established trees and shrubs. To the west side of the house is a spacious seating area giving access to the front door with views towards the Church and farmland in the distance.
