Situated in the heart of the Cotswolds village of Nettleton is this stunning, Grade ii, three bed, detached, thatched cottage. Thought to have been built around the early 18th century, this property offers a peaceful and tranquil setting with mature cottage gardens, and period features alongside carefully modernised interior aspects.
You enter the grounds though a private gate and onto a driveway big enough for multiple vehicles. The property is entered straight into the utility room, fitted with an antique drop sink and leads straight through into the separate boot room with side garden access. At the other end of the utility room is a separate downstairs shower and toilet. At the rear of the property is the newest addition, the studio. Designed by an RIBA approved architect around 10 years ago, this studio provides the perfect place to paint (the previous owner was an artist) or sit and do some work. With dual aspect, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the garden and a running rill fed by a natural well, and a recently installed velux window that allows for good ventilation and ample natural light. The kitchen/dining room is situated off the utility room, with dual aspect, bay windows overlooking the front and rear gardens and a door onto an outside eating area complete with granite table and trained vine and pergola. The purpose built kitchen has an island with a sink and is fitted with a range cooker and integrated appliances. Leading through from the kitchen you have the lounge area comprising an open timber lintel fireplace and original exposed beams. The lounge has dual aspect windows and a secondary door out into the front garden.
On the first floor you have three bedrooms, two double size and one single size. Each bedroom has internal storage space and bedroom 1 has a feature fireplace. Also, on this floor is a family bathroom equipped with an over bath shower.
Outside the property benefits from a south facing, private garden with a c.16”x17” garage, and two further smaller garden sheds. The gardens are also home to three apple trees, two plum trees, a fig tree and a mapel. The property is located in the village of Nettleton, to the north of Bath.
