Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Prominently located in the historic centre of this thriving Cotswold market town the double fronted building possibly dates back to the Civil War. However the building as seen today is typically mid 19th Century in appearance. The property comprises a spacious shop on the ground floor with a substantial apartment over the first and second floors in need of work together with a garden to the rear.

White Cottage is an aesthetically pleasing three storey vernacular building constructed mainly of Cotswold stone under a pitched and tiled roof, traditional timber casement and mullioned windows, and a modern but sympathetic shop
front. To the rear of the property is a modern flat roof extension providing a useful office with separate WC.

This building is Listed under the Planning Act 1990 as mentioned for its Special Architectural or Historic Interest. White Cottage as Listed Grade II lies within the Stow in the Wold and Maugersbury designated Conservation Area.


The Borzoi Bookshop leases the ground floor premises and has been established at White Cottage for nearly 35 years. The commercial shop comprises a series of rooms and in the south east corner, to the front of the shop, is a staircase to the basement and a staircase to the first floor living accommodation. A door at the rear of the property gives access to a charming partly walled garden, a potential remnant of a burgage block.

The garden comprises a terrace, steps up to a lawn with mature trees and shrubs. Part of the garden is overgrown.


Set out over the two upper floors the flat is currently vacant. It provides opportunity for refurbishment and modernisation as well as potential to highlight further historic features of the earlier buildings. The flat currently provides a modern kitchen, characterful reception room, two bedrooms and a family bathroom. The flat enjoys a roofscape aspect.

Planning consent exists to create independent access to the first and second floor flat.


Church Street is an exceptionally pretty and ancient road leading into the Market Square from the A436. White Cottage occupies a prominent position in a town which welcomes over 150,000 visitors each year and is able to take advantage
of excellent footfall.

Stow on the Wold is a former wool town enjoying an elevated position situated within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The town is renowned for its speciality shops including many fine art and antique dealers centred on and around
the attractive Market Square comprising stone built properties, with several public houses, a library, police station and a charming church.
Stow on the Wold is strategically located off the Fosse Way at the convergence of a number of major roads through the North Cotswolds. As such it is a bustling market town. The surrounding countryside is particularly beautiful with traditional Cotswold villages, rural walks and interesting churches. Stow on the Wold is well situated to provide good access to Birmingham in the north and London in the south.
