Situated in the heart of the very accessible village of Burton, in the South Cotswolds, a charming stone cottage, believed to date back to c.1650. The property has generous gardens and off-street parking for multiple cars. Offered to the market with no onward chain.
Dove Cottage has been loving renovated and restored to a high standard over the past 15 years, retaining many original features such as characterful flagstones and exposed beams across its two floors. The house has been skillfully fitted with solid oak carpentry throughout, including doors and door frames - the latter often bespoke around the exposed stone walls.
The front door, accessed via an open stone porch, leads into a practical hallway/boot room. There is a further rear lobby beyond the hallway, which houses the oil-fired central heating boiler and has a door opening to the rear garden. The majority of the ground floor is an impressive open-plan reception room with working fireplaces to both ends, one of which being an inglenook and the other fitted with a wood burner. There are three windows to the front and one to the rear, allowing in plenty of natural light. Adjacent to the reception room is the kitchen which is fitted with bespoke oak wall and base units, a double Belfast sink and a Rayburn. Appliances including a dishwasher, washing machine and fridge are integrated, plus a travertine tiled floor with underfloor heating throughout.
Rising to the first floor, a light fitted landing provides access to three double bedrooms, all boasting a wealth of character and charm. There is a family bathroom which enjoys natural light via a Velux window, and a fitted white suite including a shower over the bath, as well as a large airing cupboard.
Externally, to the front a gravel driveway provides parking for up to three vehicles and is bordered to all sides by an attractive Cotswold stone wall. There is a lawn area and a well-stocked flower border. At the rear the generous and private garden faces south, making it a fantastic space for entertaining during the summer months. A patio terrace leads directly out from the kitchen and two sets of steps lead up to a further decked terrace and a lawn. There are very well-stocked flower borders and shrubs around the garden plus a stone shed to one corner.
The property is believed to be connected to mains electricity, water and sewage. Oil-fired central heating. Council Tax Band D (Wiltshire Council).
