From its conception in Dovedale woods, only a few hundred yards away, the babbling Blockley Brook meanders past many honeyed stone homes until only a few yards away from this enchanting Grade II listed three storey two bedroom Cotswold cottage retreat from which the property enjoys an engaging view along Brook Lane. The property combines the innate character and charm of one of the oldest properties in the village with the contemporary refinements of modern day living. Period features include a substantial inglenook fireplace to the cosy welcoming living room, there are many pointed stone walls, exposed beams and window seats and a dramatic apex ceiling to the top floor bedroom which also has an en suite washroom.

Modern features of the property include a superbly fitted kitchen with a range of quartz work surfaces, integrated dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washer dryer and the bespoke units are coloured in traditional hopsack Cotswold green. French doors lead from the kitchen onto a private enclosed patio with a garden beyond. The property has gas fired central heating from a combination boiler, upgraded wiring and a totally in keeping bathroom suite with a cast iron roll top bath.

Undoubtedly an escape from everyday life the property will appeal to those looking for a main home, a second home or a holiday cottage for investment purposes.

The property is situated in a tranquil location within both sight and earshot of the gently cascading brook and only a few hundred yards from the centre of the village where there are two public houses, a hotel, host of circular walks from the village around the surrounding countryside, the new hub of the village is the new local village store cafe which doubles as a fine dining restaurant some evenings.
