The Vatch, Stroud


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
This is the most delightful attached stone cottage set in the most idyllic location with views across the valley to Slad, Pitchcombe and the most stunning backdrop to the rear. On approach parking for two cars and a detached garage. Gate leads into a very well maintained front garden with a wealth of planting and a great sun spot. Internally entrance/sun room leads into the sitting room with period fireplace and log burner inset. Exposed stonework to one wall. A fantastic breakfast room opens to the kitchen with views up the steps to a lawned area and Swift's Hill nature reserve beyond. A rear porch with downstairs WC and door leading to the outside. Accommodation over two floors to include two double bedrooms, bathroom and a single room ideal for a study/dressing room. The rooms on these floors have beautiful views.

It is important to mention although the property is described as a two bedroom cottage, subject to permissions there is scope to extend the cottage two storey to the rear as neighbouring properties have done. To the rear, steps lead up to a lawned area with ranch fencing giving you a clear view over the landscape with a fantastic chicken shed to the corner of the garden. To support it being such a beautiful location, the vendor has enjoyed this lovely location for some 52 years. What a great spot to live and spoilt for views where ever you look. I would call this a little gem.
