A beautiful Grade II listed period Cotswold Cottage in a picturesque village.

Location

Bovey Cottage is situated in the heart of the well regarded village of Caudle Green. This beautiful location enjoys quintessential Cotswold architecture, uninterrupted views, yet has convenient access to the M5 (Junction 11a) and easy access to the M4 (Junction 15) via the A417/9. Day to day shopping can be found in Cirencester and Cheltenham and there are high speed trains to the North from Cheltenham and to London Paddington from Kemble.

Description

Bovey Cottage was built as a weavers cottage and is believed to be the second oldest property within the village dating back to about 1680. This beautiful period property boasts a wealth of traditional features and received a sympathetic extension in 1993 allowing the property a more modern day layout. The accommodation is set over two levels with mellow Cotswold stone elevations under pitched tiled roofs. Mature and attractive gardens surround the house and there is a useful detached studio which serves currently as an office, plus a stone woodshed for storage.

There are two points of access; the original section having a front door to the living room and day to day access via the newer section to the side. The side entrance hall has a guest cloakroom to the right and also leads through to the kitchen/dining room. Although this is part of the newer section of the cottage, plenty of character is provided with its oil fired stove with stone surround and impressive stone door surround and stone mullion window from the original rear elevation.

A step leads up to the sitting room spanning the full width of the cottage, featuring exposed beams, stone mullioned windows and superb large inglenook fireplace with former bread oven and wood burning stove.

In the corner an original stone spiralling staircase leads to a useful study/landing area with exposed wooden floors and views over the garden. There are two bedrooms and a family bathroom. The main bedroom features a vaulted ceiling exposed beams and window seat. The second bedroom is within the modern section and enjoys views over the neighbouring valley. The bathroom features a smart white suite with bath and shower mixer.

Bovey Cottage has off road parking for two vehicles and a separate pedestrian access leading to the property. The mature garden and views over the valley provide a beautiful setting with a gentle gradient of borders and lawned areas surrounding the cottage. There is semi-natural woodland, planted woodland, herbaceous borders, mown grass and wild ‘meadow’.

A terraced strip of land below the north wall boundary and fronting the valley, provides an interesting further seating area or small garden. Worthy of note is a useful stone woodshed and detached modern studio with electricity and phone line connected.
