A quintessentially English Cotswold stone cottage, nestled within the hamlet of Tetbury Upton, which has been upgraded to the highest of standards, not dissimilar to stepping into a featured property in House and Gardens.

The house was part of the original farmhouse and has an attractive front garden with cottage garden planting and a climbing hydrangea draped across the porch, providing the welcome to a home which is both unique and full of charm.

The hallway provides a cupboard with plenty of space for shoes and coats, and some of the period details can be seen here, partially exposed stone walls and beams. The dining room is impressive with a wood burning stove and dual aspect windows.

The kitchen has been modernised with a hand built kitchen comprising pale cream cupboards and drawer, a Miele oven and microwave, a white AGA, Fisher and Paykel two drawer dishwasher set within the large island complete with additional storage. Stone mullioned windows overlook the garden and an adjacent pantry is a joy with plenty of storage and a slate shelf. There is also a large utility/boot room with plenty of storage and a downstairs cloakroom.

The sitting room is a delight, stone mullioned windows with window seats, a large inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, nooks and crannies galore.

A curved staircase leads to the first floor where there are two similar sized double bedrooms and large family bathroom with a freestanding bath and a separate shower.

The principal bedroom is exquisite with high ceilings and beautiful views across the garden. There are hand built fitted wardrobes and shutters and an en-suite bathroom with a large walk in shower. In the corridor outside is a large airing cupboard.

On the second floor there is a lovely space for a library or storage leading into the fourth bedroom, with exposed beams. A charming beamed doorway leads into an en-suite bathroom with a freestanding bath. A potential dressing room, currently used as an office, is off the bathroom, this recent addition has been insulated and has exposed beams.

Outside there is parking for several cars, leading to a barn with lighting and power, which has been re-roofed, clad with cedar and is currently used for storage and a garage. There was previously planning permission to convert this into a carport with office space above.

The gardens are as delightful as the house, beautifully planted with lawns, water features and paths leading you through to a home office in the garden. This bespoke building has heating, light and power and the advantage of Gigaclear, ensuring optimum speed.
