A quaint and charming cottage set in the sought after semi-rural village of Great Witcombe, a short drive from both the centres of Cheltenham and Gloucester.
Little Gungs Close is a characterful home steeped in local history. With origins dating back to the 1600s, it was formally the village post office before that, the local ale house. Since that time the cottage has been subject to various extensions to combine the era and to create the delightful home you see today. Much of the charm is the period and character details that have been retained throughout, to include exposed beams, stone walls and Inglenook fireplaces. Todays home is well presented and offers balanced living to bedroom space, ideal for modern living.
Entrance is gained through a hall leading to the principal reception rooms. The family room is a lovely room with a set of French doors leading to the rear garden. An exposed brick wall and stone fireplace provides a charming feature. A door opens to a separate dining room and further to a sitting room with an Inglenook fireplace. From the dining room is access to a kitchen, fitted with a range of units and with views over the gardens to the rear. A door leads to a utility area and cloakroom, which further leads onto an external patio area ideal for bbqs and outside entertaining. In addition is an external study, which is accessed via a private entrance outside, making this the ideal space to work from home.
A staircase rises to the three double bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom has the benefit of fitted wardrobes and built in storage cupboards. There is a family bathroom serving the bedrooms.
Situated on a pretty semi-rural lane backing onto cricket grounds, Little Gungs Close is set in the charming hamlet of Great Witcombe close to the reputable areas of Leckhampton and Brockworth, both offering excellent day to day shopping and recreational facilities. Within the immediate vicinity is a garage with a well-stocked shop and two public houses. This pretty village lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and as such is characterised by the beautiful rolling countryside surrounding it. Whilst distinctively semi-rural, Great Witcombe is within easy commute to both Cheltenham and Gloucester, both of which provide exceptional schooling in the state, private and grammar sectors in addition to cultural centres. Access to motorway networks are also excellent with M50 and M5 junctions within striking distance, making both a South/North commute easy.
Enjoying a beautiful setting with views to hills and surrounded by established hedging, Little Gungs Close is set in mature and private gardens. Fronted by a shingled path and box hedging with stone raised flower beds, the tendered garden is mostly laid to lawn and lies to one side of the cottage, bordered by well stocked flower and shrub borders with a timber gate opening to the cricket pitch. There is a shingle pathway leading to a parking area with a variety of fruit trees. To the right-hand side of the house is further large and leveled area of lawn flanked with trees and flowers borders. There is a useful timber shed and brick outhouse, currently used as a garage.
