Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A wonderfully situated and substantially extended mid terraced natural stone cottage enjoying stunning views over the village and down the valley towards Nailsworth.

The current owners have lived here some 20 years and have carried out a comprehensive programme of extension and refurbishment works that included a new roof covering in 2010. In some rooms, these updating works have not been completely finished and the property is marketed at a realistic price to reflect what is still left to do.

The accommodation consists of reception entrance hall with a wide entrance door above which is an air source heat pump providing partial heating. An inglenook fireplace has a log burner, there is an oak floor and a staircase leads up to the first floor with three clever storage compartments under. From here there is access through a utility area which can accommodate a tall fridge/freezer and washing machine. The partially glazed kitchen/breakfast room has a vaulted ceiling that makes the most of the views. There is a range of pale cream coloured shaker style units comprising base and wall cupboards, an Oak floor, a dual fuel range oven and double French doors lead out into the rear garden. Leading off the kitchen/breakfast room is an attractive lounge with a Contura log burner built into the chimney breast alongside which is a TV shelf. There are delightful views from windows to two aspects. From here three steps lead up to the dining room with another fireplace housing a log burner (which requires a liner before commissioning). A cloakroom has a white suite of low level WC and wash hand basin.

At first floor level, all three bedrooms are doubles with the master bedroom having plumbing in one corner to accommodate an en suite shower room. The family bathroom has a white suite of panelled bath, wash hand basin and low level WC.

At the front of the cottage the garden is laid to lawn with a gravelled area that offers an additional parking space. The rear garden is laid to an area of lawn with a raised patio, having open and extensive views. A vehicular right of way to the double parking bay, will be provided across the drive that leads to two neighbouring properties.

AMENITIES The village of Avening is located almost equidistant between Nailsworth and Tetbury and provides local facilities which include two public houses, a primary school with an outstanding reputation, and a historic Saxon Church. Located on the northern edge of Avening is the well-known Minchinhampton Golf Club, boasting two 18 hole courses.

Avening is very much in the "Royal Triangle" with Gatcombe Park, the home of The Princess Royal being immediately to the north of the village and Highgrove House, the country home of HRH The Prince of Wales, a few miles away near Tetbury. The nearest towns are Nailsworth and Tetbury, both of which have a reasonable range of local facilities including shops, public houses and primary schools with a secondary school at Tetbury. Also within the local area are a number of places of interest including the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum with some 18 thousand trees and shrubs in approximately 600 acres of landscaped grounds.
