3 bedroom detached house for saleTatchley Lane, Prestbury, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL52
Built in the early 1800’s, Walnut Cottage originally served as the coach house to Field House, now known as The Lindens, and formed part of the tree lined approach to the main house. It is believed that the renowned poet Alfred Tennyson spent time at Field House and enjoyed the grounds. The property has been extended and altered over the years to create a spacious, light and comfortable home, currently run as a B&B.
Entrance hall with oak flooring, opens to the dining room with continued oak flooring plus oak beams and with double sliding doors leading on to the rear garden. This room could also serve as an additional downstairs bedroom, due to an adjoining ground floor bathroom, giving the property further versatility. The sitting room enjoys a stunning inglenook fireplace with wood lintel and reclaimed brick surround, featuring an alcove ideal for log storage. The room is dual aspect with solid oak bi-fold doors overlooking the front and patio doors to the rear. Kitchen/breakfast room with oak flooring and modern, cream matching, wall and base units.
