The property enjoys a lovely and sought after rural location, yet is easily accessible and well situated for the local towns and communication links. The nearby village of Staunton and Corse lies within the Severn Valley with the Malvern Hills to the North and Cotswold Hills to the East and is strategically placed for the commercial centres of Gloucester and Cheltenham. This area offers a sought after rural quality of life combined with excellent communication links to the rest of the country.
This extended period property originates from the late 19th Century and provides 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and plenty of scope to improve the layout.
The property has been a cherished family home, but would now benefit from modernisation.
A spacious sitting room, with Clearview wood burning stove forms the heart of this home. The south facing aspect provides plenty of natural light.
The adjacent dining room, with potbelly wood burner, links with the galley-style kitchen, which overlooks the entrance drive.
Off the kitchen is a ground floor shower room and a rear utility room, with door to the stable yard.
A few metres to the side of the cottage is a detached, traditional stone outbuilding. This was converted 15 years ago to provide ancillary accommodation.
Accommodation comprises a double bedroom, en-suite bathroom and living room.
Part of the building is used as a secure tack room; this has scope to be incorporated into the living space to provide a kitchen.
There is potential (subject to Planning) to join the annexe to the cottage, to create a single, larger home.
An entrance drive leads to the rear of the property and to the stable yard, providing ample parking.
The concrete surfaced stable yard is immediately adjacent to the cottage. There are two sets of timber buildings providing 4 stables, storage and a hay barn.
Conveniently and directly next to the stable yard is the standard sized arena, which is in need of resurfacing.
The paddock land wraps around two sides of the property and provides compact grazing and turn out ground.
There is potential for more land to rent locally.
Mains water and electricity, oil-fired central heating (boiler 4 yrs old), private drainage (septic tank), wooden double-glazed windows.
