A charming Cotswold stone cottage situated at the foot of Tetbury’s iconic Gumstool Hill. Offering accommodation across three floors, the property also benefits from an enclosed rear garden and off-street parking.
Gumstool Hill is one of Tetbury’s most iconic landmarks and is host to the towns annual woolsack races which are held every May. Properties on the hill rarely come to the market so this property itself is a unique opportunity to purchase in a prime address within the town. This attractive Cotswold cottage has been tastefully upgraded by its current vendors during their ownership. It is believed to have once been two cottages and now incorporates extensions to the rear to create a total floor space of approximately 1724sq.ft.
Across the ground floor are two principal receptions rooms plus a bright and light filled kitchen/breakfast room with a vaulted ceiling and French doors opening onto the garden. The sitting room reaches the width of the original part of the cottage with two feature fireplaces and four windows across the front. One of the fireplaces has been fitted with a gas effect wood burner. Beside the sitting room is a further reception room which would work very well as either a dining room, study or snug. An inner hallway provides access to the stairs, a utility room with W.C, plus a door to the kitchen. The welcoming kitchen has an excellent range of wall and base units with plenty of space for both a table and a sofa, if desired. The mix of the vaulted ceiling with skylight windows, plus French doors across the rear mean the room is full of natural light and a super space for family life. Underfloor heating also runs throughout the kitchen. The utility room is fitted with a great amount of storage including plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.
