An attractive semi-detached period cottage set within a total plot of 0.25 acres, situated on the Western edge of the idyllic and sought after village of Bibury.

The cottage benefits from a gated driveway to the front with off road parking, garaging and garden outbuildings, and has been a cherished home for the last 23 years. Although the property does require updating and renovation it provides great scope to create an excellent family house within this popular village, subject to the necessary planning permissions.

The living accommodation is arranged over two floors with a further staircase to the attic. The ground floor offers a characterful central entrance hall with flagstone flooring and exposed stone walling, flanked by a spacious bay fronted sitting room and dining room, also bay fronted, which opens into the kitchen.

A staircase from the hallway leads to the first floor landing with three bedrooms and a bathroom with a further staircase rising to the attic, divided into two areas, both with windows.
