A beautifully presented detached country cottage situated in the unspoilt Hamlet of Halmore on the outskirts of Berkeley surrounded by scenic Severn Vale countryside.

The Cottage is built in natural stone offering a stunning blend of character and charm with extremely high quality fittings, décor and superb attention to detail. The accommodation originally offered three bedrooms but was stylishly adapted to provide two double bedrooms and a beautiful bathroom.

A quality character feel runs through the property which features limestone flooring throughout the majority of the ground floor with original fireplaces and wood burner, exposed natural stone, cottage latch doors, ceiling beams and timbers. A wonderful large farmhouse kitchen/dining room forms the heart of the accommodation with a centre island and a fabulous pine dresser matching the units with granite worktops. The ground floor also has a study which could be occupied as a third bedroom if required, fully equipped utility room and adjoining cloakroom/wc.

The lounge boasts a beamed ceiling and fireplace with multi-fuel wood burner and on the south side there is a large double glazed garden room leading directly off the kitchen/dining area. The study/bedroom three completes the ground floor accommodation whilst on the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a luxury bathroom with claw foot bath and large walk-in shower. The Cottage has gas fired central heating, double glazing and has been rewired with Jim Lawrence switches and fittings throughout. Outside the gardens are a great feature with cottage style borders including specimen shrubs, bushes and fruit trees. There are lawns and paved patios ideal for outside entertaining and a good sized driveway providing ample off-road parking and useful garden store/workshop.
