Situated within a conservation area of this popular Cotswolds village is this attractive Grade II Listed property enjoying an elevated position, resulting in far-reaching, uninterrupted views of fields and farmland. Built in traditional Cotswold stone, with a stone slate roof, Long Cottage was originally two houses dating back to the 18th Century, since converted into a characterful and well-maintained home. The living area provides a spacious entrance hall with a staircase down to a study area. The adjacent dining room has a bay window to the front and a stone fireplace. The spacious sitting room retains many period features including exposed beams, window seats, plus an inglenook fireplace with stone hearth and oak mantle. Internal shutters frame leaded light windows. To the side of the fireplace is a wooden door, leading to a staircase rising to the first and second floors. The kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of fitted units including integrated appliances and a thermostatically controlled electric Aga. There is also an electric oven, dishwasher and LPG gas hob. A utility room with cloakroom completes the ground floor and provides access to the garden's wood-shed and potting shed via a traditional stable door. Located on the first floor are two bedrooms and a family shower room. The master bedroom has an en-suite with freestanding roll top bath and extensive walk-in wardrobe space. A large attic space above the second bedroom provides more storage or the potential to convert. On the second floor are two inter-connecting rooms, the larger of which is currently used as a home office and leads through to a bedroom. All rooms throughout this family house enjoy far reaching southerly views, which makes this property a highly desirable and attractive choice.
