A very pleasantly situated natural stone and stone-tiled substantially extended detached cottage, enjoying a very quiet location on the southern edge of the village within a conservation area.

The attractively presented accommodation consists of a reception entrance hall with a natural stone feature fireplace housing a log burner, a parquet tiled floor and an open-tread staircase to the first floor. The adjacent cloakroom has a white suite of a low-level WC and wash hand basin plus a modern Worcester gas-fired combi central heating boiler. The generously proportioned sitting room has a large inglenook fireplace housing a log burner, exposed beams, windows to the front and rear aspects and a French door into the rear garden. The dining room/fourth bedroom again has a natural stone feature fireplace and a French door on to the rear garden, and is equally suited to a downstairs bedroom or office/family room. The impressive kitchen/dining room is in the new wing to the cottage which was built around 2007 of matching natural stone elevations and consists of a Parlour Farm range of bespoke base and wall cupboards plus a gas fired four-oven Aga range and integrated dishwasher, automatic washing machine and two fridges. Double French doors from here lead into the front garden.

At first floor level, the spacious landing provides for an ideal study area with windows to two aspects, the master bedroom again has windows to two aspects, a vaulted ceiling and a very smart en suite shower room with a large walk-in shower enclosure having a comprehensive shower fitting plus low level WC and pedestal wash basins. Bedrooms Two and Three are also good-sized doubles and the spacious family bathroom has a roll-top bath with ball and claw feet, a pedestal wash basin and low-level WC. Off the landing, the linen cupboard doubles as a walk-in wardrobe.

Outside, to the front of the cottage, is a detached garage with up-and-over door, light and power. The mature gardens to the front and rear are laid to areas of lawn with a number of mature trees, ensuring a great degree of privacy. The rear garden has a natural stone outbuilding which makes an ideal log store/tool shed, and a ribbon of trees on the northern boundary adds to the secluded atmosphere.

The plot is thought to measure 0.3 acres in total.

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.
