The Property - This well presented home was built in 1990 in a traditional style using Cotswold stone, with stone quoins and mullion style window surrounds fitted with double glazed units. It lies in an exclusive cul-de-sac of three similar properties, tucked away in a delightfully secluded location, in the heart of the town. It enjoys an east-west orientation with ample parking to the front, and an enclosed and part walled level garden to the rear. A charming oak gate set in the lovely old stone wall leads to an adjoining managed woodland extending to about two acres, and is bordered by the river. There is gated access from Holloway Hill and the woodland is available separately with a price guide of £30,000. First refusal will be given to the buyer of the house.

Opposite is the good size formal dining room, with the cloakroom next door and the kitchen at the rear. This has a good range of units including a built-in electric double oven, hob and extractor hood over. The dishwasher, fridge and freezer are all integrated and a wide window overlooks the rear garden. An opening off leads to the utility room, which has a sink and under counter space for two appliances. There is a serving hatch to the dining room, an external door and a deep built-in storage cupboard with the water softener. On the first floor, at the top of the stairs is a lovely arched window.
