Full description

A charming, individual, detached period cottage which has been previously extended and offers versatile living throughout. This characterful and generous family accommodation includes three/four bedrooms (fourth bedrooms is a loft room/study) and has been adapted over time to provide a much loved home with a wealth of period features including exposed beams, Inglenook fireplace, mullioned windows and part quarry tile flooring.
The cottage also enjoys a well tended and stocked mature garden with a feature stone outbuilding and is ideally nestled within the charming Cotswold village of Birdlip, a village in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment with views taking in much of the Vale of Gloucester and the Malvern and Welsh hills beyond. Whilst it sits on an old Roman Road its history stretches back to several thousand years to Neolithic times. The village has a public house, a village hall, a local primary school and a village church. It is within easy commuting distance of Gloucester, Cheltenham, Cirencester and easy access to the M5.
The property can be reached via an enclosed front garden with a Cotswold stone front wall and wooden gate. The stone chip driveway provides off road parking for two/three vehicles and paving leading to the entrance and rear garden. The kitchen/breakfast room has a feature Inglenook fireplace with wood burner and "hidden" bread oven and there is a generous open living/dining room.
