Keepers Cottage

Is a charming detached cottage which according to the date stone suggests that the original cottage was built in the 1830's. It is set in an excellent plot of just over an acre. It is constructed mainly of natural Cotswold stone with rendered side elevations under a slate roof with replacement UPVC double glazed windows set within cut stone window reveals. A single storey glass house has been added to the front together with a more contemporary two-storey extension constructed partly of stone and timber elevations under a part slate and part corrugated iron roof and set to the side of the property. There is a small single storey extension of rendered elevations under a mono pitched slate roof to the rear.

The cottage has been in the same ownership for many years and now lends itself for complete modernisation and extension or possibly for a replacement dwelling subject to any necessary planning consents.

Keepers Cottage is approached from the village lane and via a six bar metal gate with a drive leading to a parking area and single garage (14' x 9'). There is a front and rear garden. In all 0.533 of an acre.
