Beechwood is a detached property which was rebuilt and considerably extended to a generous 4 bedroom property from the original 2 bedroom cottage, of which the porch is the only original part remaining. There are many sympathetically installed period features in the property such as the feature fireplace with wood burner in the main reception room together with the oak flooring in the entrance hall, sitting room and bathrooms upstairs. The accommodation is beautifully presented over two floors.

All the ground floor rooms are accessible from the main entrance hall including a downstairs cloakroom and study. The main reception room is well proportioned, double aspect and enjoys views over the garden to one side. The kitchen/breakfast room has a full range of kitchen units, granite worktops, integrated range cooker and butler's sink. The back door leads on to the graveled parking area adjacent to and in front of the garage.

On the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms, the main bedroom with an en suite shower room. The landing having a built in airing cupboard housing the water heater. There is loft access from bedroom four.

The vendor advises there is scope for further improvements in to the attic space, which extends to the whole length of the house, as outlined in plans which are available to inspect; of which 50% of the works have been completed.

The property is sold complete with all window blinds and curtains to all rooms.

The current vendors confirm that planning permission was granted for a new utility room, downstairs cloakroom and new entrance gates. Part of these works have been undertaken and a planning amendment has been put forward to increase the scale of the extension to now include an extended kitchen/family room, an attached one bedroomed annex with shower room, kitchen and a living/dining room as well as an office on the first floor of the garage.

Beechwood is situated beyond the village of Didmarton, on the main Tetbury Road on the edge of the Badminton Estate, providing good access to Tetbury together with Cirencester, Malmesbury and Nailsworth.

Excellent private and state schools close by include Westonbirt, Beaudesert Park and the various schools in Cheltenham and Bath.

The garden is designed into two areas which are framed by mature hedging and stone walls.
