Maytree Cottage is an attractive, double fronted stone cottage sitting in the heart of the Cotswold hamlet of Willesley, just south-west of Tetbury. The property is believed to originally date back to the 1930’s and has been extended by previous owners to now stand as a well-proportioned family home.
Having undergone sympathetic improvements by its current owners, it still offers great potential to create a fabulous home in the Cotswolds.
The ground floor accommodation provides a versatile layout, offering four reception rooms, a spacious kitchen with Aga and adjacent orangery. Three of the reception rooms benefit from focal fireplaces with wood burning stoves inset and all enjoy an outlook across the gardens that surround the house. There is also a utility/boot room and cloakroom on the ground floor. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Externally an established south-west orientated garden follows the front, side and rear of the house, with a maturing beech hedge border and the remainder is predominantly laid to lawn. A gravel, gated driveway provides ample parking for several vehicles and leads to a garage, two stables and a carport. Beyond the driveway are two paddocks and a further outbuilding. The larger paddock reaches approx. 2.27 acres with road access and a water source. We are informed this paddock is subject to an uplift clause of 20% for a 20 year period, commencing from 2017.
We understand that the property is connected to mains electric and water. The drainage is served by a septic tank and the central heating fired by oil. Council tax band G (Wiltshire Council).
