  • Bedrooms: 2
A gem of a cottage for modernisation situated in a delightful location in the highly sought after village of Stinchcombe. This detached stone built cottage is believed to date back to the 16th Century with beautiful local stone elevations under a tiled roof with many original features retained including exposed beams, original latched doors and front door, polished wood and quarry tiled floors and a fabulous stone fireplace with bread oven and wood burner in the lounge.

The cottage is set well back from the road with large mature gardens over half an acre including a stone barn/garage workshop approached via a driveway off Wick Lane. This is one of the historic local cottages in Stinchcombe and is Grade II listed due to its architectural merit and offers tremendous scope for improvement and extension subject to relevant planning consents. Once sympathetically modernised and restored this will provide the new owners with a wonderful character property in a stunning position within the village.

The accommodation currently provides two double bedrooms, two reception rooms, kitchen, bathroom and cloakroom and a useful workshop suitable for conversion into living space. Outside the property has large mature gardens with many trees, shrubs and bushes, lawns and flower borders and original outside WC building.

The property backs onto open fields and is positioned on a footpath providing delightful walks and rides across neighbouring farmland and Stinchcombe Hill which lies on the Cotswold Way. Stinchcombe is on the edge of Dursley Town which provides a full range of retail shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and leisure centre/swimming pool, doctors surgery, library and both Rednock Secondary School and a number of highly regarded primary schools. There are excellent commuting routes to the major centres of Bristol, Gloucester and Cheltenham via the A38 and M5 motorway and mainline train station at Box Road, Cam (2 1/2 miles approx.) serving Bristol and London (Paddington) via Gloucester.

The property is sold with vacant possession and no upward chain and the vendor's agents hold a key at their Dursley office for accompanied viewings.
