A charming period house in a popular village close to Cirencester
The sought after village of Daglingworth is a pretty Cotswold village surrounded by Duchy of Cornwall and Bathurst Estate land, at the centre of which is Cirencester Park. The village has a reputation as a friendly rural community and there is a parish church which was rebuilt in Victorian times which retains an element of Anglo Saxon work together with a 15th century west tower.
Cirencester is the nearest town and is often referred to as the Capital of the Cotswolds. Shopping in the town is highly regarded and off the main streets there are many interesting back lanes with specialist shops, particularly in Black Jack Street. The Market Place hosts a twice weekly market as well as a Farmer's Market every other Saturday. There are two supermarkets in Cirencester: Waitrose and Tesco.
Recreational pursuits in the area include sailing at the Cotswold Water Park, boating on the River Thames and there are cricket, tennis and rugby clubs in Cirencester and golf clubs at Bagendon (Cirencester Golf Club) and South Cerney. The surrounding countryside is crisscrossed by many public footpaths.
The locality is ideal for the commuter; it is close to the A419/A417 which provides easy access to both the M4 and M5. There is also a regular Great Western rail service from Kemble to London Paddington taking approximately 75 minutes. There is also an excellent range of private and state schools in the area.
Laurel Cottage is a delightful period cottage in Daglingworth. Constructed in the vernacular style of Cotswold stone under a stone tile roof, with original sash windows. The front aspect is adorned with Wisteria and climbing roses and the property is extremely attractive and sits in a pleasant position in the village. Whilst it would now benefit from some modernisation, the house is not Listed thus allowing a buyer to update to their own taste (subject to the necessary permissions being obtained), it has been lovingly cared for and has been in the same ownership for over forty years. Downstairs there is a generous sitting room, with large inglenook fireplace and pretty views of the terrace and garden beyond. The dining room is also a good size, again with fireplace and there is a pantry and kitchen leading off. The kitchen is fully equipped with a range of wall and floor units, electric oven and there is also a further small pantry. Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms on the first floor, both having built in cupboards and there is also a family bathroom. On the second floor is a further bathroom and two bedrooms, the larger currently used as a study.
The enclosed garden at Laurel Cottage is beautiful and has been lovingly created to provide deep herbaceous borders, interspersed with a variety of fruit trees and divided by a wide section of lawn. Stone steps lead up to the terrace area, which is perfect for enjoying the garden and outside dining. At the top of the garden is a weeping silver pear and a delightful green house. There is also a large detached garage.
Square Footage: 1,785 sq ft
