This is the most delightful example of a Grade II listed three storey detached cottage, set in the heart of Thrupp with stunning views across the valley. Set back from Thrupp lane, this property could easily be described as a chocolate box of a cottage, charming to look at and built in Cotswold stone with leaded light windows and climbing roses to the front. Internally, a wealth of character to include exposed beams, Cotswold stone, parquet flooring, wooden floorboards, and wonderful window seats to sit and admire the view.
You are greeted with a beautiful view across the valley, I am sure you could never get bored of seeing this as you wake up each day. Parking for one on approach with pathway to the entrance and south facing gardens.
Internally, entrance hall with parquet flooring. Sitting room with wooden flooring, low windows with seats offering views to the garden and beyond. Fireplace with log burner inset and exposed stonework, perfect for those winter evenings in front of the fire.
A traditional rustic kitchen with parquet flooring. Belfast sink, wooden worktops and base units. Exposed stonework and open shelving. Space for a small two-seater table and chairs. Opening to a very good-sized laundry/boot room with quarry tiled flooring and a wealth of built-in units and space for appliances.
To the first-floor, delightful painted floorboards with the backdrop of exposed stonework. Under stairs area to the landing, ideal for a small office space. A beautifully presented family bathroom with double ended roll top bath taking centre stage. The property benefits from a separate shower room, perfect for a busy family. The master bedroom takes full advantage of the views with a window seat perfect to gaze at the lights across the valley with a glass of wine. Wooden flooring and exposed stonework add further charm to such a relaxing space. A single bedroom to this floor or as a home office. Stairs lead to the second floor to two beautiful double bedrooms with exposed beams and storage space to the eaves, offering great accommodation for any family. This completes the internal space.

Lawns to one side with central path leading to the head of the garden, archway leading to an enclosed vegetable garden complete with apple and plum trees. A herb garden and raised beds offer the perfect area to grow your own vegetables, with a wood chipping area ideal for children to play.
