This substantial Cotswold stone village house is understood to have formerly been three cottages which were converted to create one detached house, the property was also further enlarged in the 1950’s. The present owner has carried out a partial restoration, but the property still requires further improvement.
Having already undergone a significant programme of restoration by the present owners this striking Cotswold stone property still offers a prospective purchaser the potential to further upgrade and renovate with current planning consent (ref: 17/00048/FUL) to demolish the existing kitchen, bathroom, garage and conservatory with the replacement of a large kitchen/breakfast room, bathroom, orangery and garage.

Standing on rising ground in the centre of this classic Cotswold village, built around Cowley Manor, which is now run as an exclusive country house hotel. The village nestles in an incredibly quiet valley roughly equidistant between Cirencester and Cheltenham. The latter offers a wide range of shops, restaurants, wine bars and a good variety of internationally recognised schools, also within a short drive of Rendcomb College. Cheltenham is also blessed with a surprisingly wide choice of festivals throughout the year including literature, music, cricket and National hunt racing at Prestbury Park Racecourse.
Mains water, electricity, oil fired central heating and private drainage are connected to the property.
