The Property
***COTTAGE WITH STABLES AND LAND***This is an opportunity to purchase a unique property set in 2.5 acres of land, in a highly sought after location in the village of Bourton on the Water, set in the heart of the Cotswolds. Despite its rural location it is only 1 hour 40 minutes from Paddington Station (10 mins to Kingham Station). Bristol and Birmingham are an hour by car.

Meadside is set on an newly tarmacked, unadopted drive and overlooks its own paddock to the rear which has separate vehicle access.

The house is set in two and a half acres and has a substantial timber stable block and workshop consisting of two fifteen by fifteen stables and a fifteen by fifteen workshop with roll over door all under a well ventilated cement fibre roof.

The ground is level and was once part of the village cricket field and has the most beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and direct access to the local footpaths for those who like to walk and there are several bridleways within easy reach for those who want to ride.

The local school (Cotswold Secondary) has an “Outstanding” Ofsted report and was the Sunday Times Comprehensive School of the year 2015-2016.

Meadside is an incredibly unique property in that there are extremely few houses with all the facilities that are associated with it in this price range and as such has provided the vendors' family with a wonderful home over the last 38 years. Being in the village means there is main gas and good speed internet connection. Whilst in a situation well away from the tourist area it has all the advantages of a large number of good restaurants, pubs, shops and other facilities within walking distance.

The house itself is well maintained as are the grounds.

Entrance Hallway
Entering the house through a solid oak door into the entrance hall with Parquet flooring, off the hall is a cloakroom and under-stairs cupboard. Stairs to the first floor.

From the hallway is a solid oak door leading to a good sized sitting room, again with Parquet flooring. There is also an open fire, bay window and built in bespoke wooden shelving unit.

Dining Room

With parquet flooring and solid wood doors, the dining room also has a blocked off chimney with potential to install an Aga in the kitchen or conservatory.

17'0 x 15'0 (max)
The conservatory is a great feature of this property with views out over the garden and paddocks. The present owners use the conservatory as a dining room, breakfast room and sitting room, showing what a pleasant and multi-functional room this is.

Utility Room
23'0 x 7'11
Off the conservatory is a large utility room with plumbing for a washing machine, base and eye-level units with a stainless steel sink and draining board. There is also fitted storage shelving and a WC. A mains gas Combi boiler supplies the hot water and heating.

Bedroom One
13'9 x 11'4

Rear Garden
Outside there is an area of lawn and cobbles with pots and shrubs which make for very easy maintenance.

Beyond the garden is a paddock which is level and in good health, without the need for chemical treatment.

Beyond the paddock is a stable block with three separate 15'0 x 15'0 units, one of which is setup as a workshop/tack room. The area in front of the block is level and hard cored to the drive which has separate vehicle access at the end of Hilcote Drive. There is excellent LED lighting and power provided by a generator
