DESCRIPTION Occupying a superb position in the rural picturesque village of Sopworth, this delightful period cottage has a lovely outlook overlooking paddocks. Dating back to 1938 and constructed of natural stone, the cottage has been recently extended at the rear creating an excellent modern living space. The ground floor comprises a charming traditional living room with engineered oak flooring and an open fireplace. The new impressive kitchen/dining room has high ceilings and is filled with natural light from skylights and aluminium bi-folding doors to the garden. Beneath the fossilised limestone flooring there is underfloor heating. The kitchen is well-equipped with Shaker units and a large breakfast bar, whilst there is a large cupboard which houses the utility appliances alongside a separate downstairs WC. Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms, a further single bedroom and a family bathroom.
To the front of the property, there is a gravelled parking area for two cars. The good-sized garden stretches back some 95' laid predominately to lawn with mature shrub borders. There is a patio terrace at the far end which backs onto a neighbouring stable yard. A passageway to the side of the cottage provides access to the rear garden for maintenance and waste.
SITUATION The pretty unspoilt Cotswold village of Sopworth is situated amidst some delightful countryside close to the Gloucestershire border in the heart of Beaufort Country. Sopworth is about 6 miles south west of Tetbury and 6 miles west of Malmesbury. The village, which is set close to the heart of the Badminton Estate, has many fine old houses and cottages, most of which will have formed part of the Estate at some point. As such the village is largely protected by the surrounding park and farmland. Within striking distance are popular villages such as Sherston, which has a wide range of amenities, Westonbirt with its excellent school and renowned arboretum and Didmarton with a popular pub. For shopping, Tetbury provides two supermarkets, many antique shops and fine food outlets. Bristol, Bath and Cirencester are within 23, 19 and 18 miles respectively.
The surrounding countryside provides a wonderful source of walks and opportunities to ride. Sopworth adjoins Badminton Estate, the home of the Duke of Beaufort and the venue of the Badminton Horse Trials. There is a small golf course at Westonbirt and an outstanding course at Minchinhampton. For children of school age there is Rose Hill Westonbirt prep school about 3 miles away and Beaudesert Park at Minchinhampton.
