Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A detached Cotswold stone house arranged over 3 floors, offering scope for improvement/ development whilst enjoying outstanding views over adjoining countryside.

This detached period cottage has remained in the same family ownership for almost 70 years and during this time the property has been adapted and enlarged to now provide 5 bedrooms and living areas on 2 floors with spectacular views to the south. Whilst modifications have been made, it is likely that potential buyers will wish to make improvements and with room to extend further (subject to planning permission) there are many options to consider. With an attractive Cotswold stone facade, the main access is via a long conservatory with double doors into an open plan living space. This comprises an Ikea kitchen with granite worktops, an Aga and openings either side of a central fireplace with a wood burner into a sitting/dining room with exposed Cotswold stone walls, wood strip floor and an open tread staircase. Off this room a rear hall leads to amenity rooms and out to a rear courtyard and large green house. There are 3 bedrooms, a shower room and WC on the first floor, 2 bedrooms benefitting from a balcony overlooking the adjoining countryside. On the second floor there are 2 further bedrooms, a bathroom and a living room / kitchenette with a picture window providing a breathtaking view across the Cotswold countryside. Outside there is parking at the front and a generous garden requiring some cultivation whilst also enjoying the glorious outlook.

Birdlip View is set within open countryside, about ½ a mile from the centre of Birdlip. At the heart of the village is an outstanding primary school, local cricket club, church and the Royal George Hotel.
