Property Details

2 2 1
*** END OF CHAIN *** A charming Grade II listed mid terraced stone cottage with two double bedrooms, presented to the market with the advantage of no onward chain and boasting an elevated position in the village that overlooks the church and enjoying far reaching views over countryside. We believe that the property dates to around the late 18th/early 19th century and revels in a host of character features indicative of the era, which include beautiful pane glass sash windows to the front with deep sills, exposed ceiling beam, inglenook fireplace with Bressumer beam, part stone chimney breast and an original panelled door with inset glass panes. The property benefits from double glazing to the rear elevation and economy 7 electric heating plus radiators, which are connected to the wood burner. This delightful cottage would make a great first time home, holiday let or as a weekend bolt hole from a hectic working week. The property must be viewed to appreciate the space and its' environment, which is on the outskirts of the small village of Bourton, within walking distance of local amenities, which include a public house - The White Lion, garage with convenience store, church and a primary school.
