An immaculate and deceptively spacious Cotswold cottage with gardens and a garage in the heart of this quaint village.
A quintessential link detached cottage in a picturesque setting, epitomising the street scenes that Cotswold villages have been become so famous for. Chapel Cottage has been the subject of continued enhancements, the interior aesthetics feel light and modern yet in keeping with its surroundings and heritage as the Baptist Chapel, originally built in 1823. Clever use of space combines with large rooms to create a family home that offers practical accommodation with the most charming feel.
The primary entrance leads into a central hallway that offers access to all reception rooms. The kitchen is a generous space and as with any of the best family homes, has been arranged to overlook the gardens with a set of bi fold doors opening to a terrace and lawn beyond. The kitchen itself is well appointed with an excellent range of bespoke handmade units opening to an area for a dining table. This is a room of great character with engineered oak floors, offering a traditional yet modern style. Adjacent is a pantry and storage room. Across from the kitchen is a useful and large utility room with a separate cloakroom adjacent. The living room is at the rear of the house, a further excellent reception room with French doors opening out to a pretty terrace with a table and chairs. This charming room was one used as the village Chapel and still today has the original hatch leading to the cellar, which is now used as a wine vault. A more formal sitting room, positioned to the front, enjoys a quaint street and countryside scene. A Clearview wood burning stove, set in a brick surround, is a lovely focal point
There are two access points to reach the bedrooms on the first floor, with a communal landing between them, one set of stairs to the side of the kitchen and one from the sitting room. The first floor has been remodelled to offer four excellent double bedrooms, with the master suite enjoying an en suite bathroom. A newly fitted shower room and family bathroom, serve the remaining bedrooms.
In all, a beautiful and unique home with the clever blend of modern character, occupying a lovely spot in Coberley. The accommodation on offer is flexible, to use as one requires, making an ideal lock up and leave, weekend retreat or permanent home.
The setting of Chapel Cottage is quintessential and the drive into the village is quaint with idyllic surrounding countryside. To the front of the house is a well-maintained garden with a path winding through to the front door. The rear garden is in keeping with the cottage style of the house, a patio area flanks the lawn, which is both mature and private dotted with a range of fruit trees. There is a stone-built studio, ideal as a home office, gym, or Artists room. A tandem garage, with an electric roller door, is set to the rear of the house and approached from a side road with direct access into the garden.
