Black Horse Hill, Tetbury: £1,150,000
With the best view in Tetbury overlooking the Cutwell Valley yet only two minutes from the thriving Market Place. A superb opportunity to acquire two separate adjoining period Cotswold Stone houses set within a shared delightful garden of 0.53 acres.
DESCRIPTION 1 & 2 Blackhorse Hill, acquired as a row of 3 traditional Cotswold Cottages 40 years ago by the current owner/occupiers provides a superb opportunity to either create a large and unique family home or utilise No 2 as a perfect annexe for either a dependent relative or a rental income. Situated in an excellent and enviable position south facing with superb uninterrupted views over both Cutwell Valley, St Mary’s Church and Bath Bridge the properties are tucked away a short walk from the town centre.
The properties have been well maintained. No 1 being used as the principle family residence and No 2 in recent years as a lucrative and popular holiday cottage business due to its relaxing rural view and convenient location. However there is potential, subject to consent, to create one large dwelling by combining the two properties. Each of these properties offers accommodation over three floors extending to 1,722 sq.ft and 1,162 sq.ft respectively. Providing a combined floor area of just under 3,000 sq.ft.
Set back down a small lane which 200 years ago was the main road into Tetbury from the South, the properties have a cobbled and flint gravel parking area with ample space for 4/5 cars which is a rarity in Tetbury. The grounds are arranged over split levels laid mostly to lawn and mature trees including a fine established English Oak. The upper level being a full-length sun terrace extending along the front of both houses with raised stone flower beds whilst steps lead down to the fenced paddock/fruit orchard with 360-degree rural views. Within the grounds there is a workshop 2 garden sheds and a large light and insulated studio which has an electrical supply.
