DESCRIPTION Bay Tree Cottage is a very pretty Grade II Listed semi-detached cottage situated in the highly sought-after picturesque village of Biddestone within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Believed to date back to c.1722, the cottage is built of Cotswold stone and has been sympathetically extended over the years to create versatile, light and airy accommodation arranged over two floors extending in all to 2,035 sq.ft. The accommodation has been finished to a beautiful standard whilst retaining a wealth of character features such as stone mullion windows and exposed beams.
The ground floor boasts a beautifully fitted kitchen/breakfast room with handmade units and is open plan to a stunning oak framed garden room which benefits from underfloor heating and overlooks the garden taking in plenty of natural light. The generous living room has a Bath stone fireplace and wood burning stove inset, leading through to a central study which borrows the views from the garden room through a large window. A further reception can be utilised as a ground floor bedroom if required, in addition to a utility room and WC.
Two staircases at either end of the property lead up to the first floor where there is ample built in storage. There are four bedrooms, a family bathroom and a further Jack and Jill style wet room. Both bathrooms are modern finished with marble tiles and underfloor heating.
Bay Tree Cottage benefits from off road parking to the side accessed through double timber gates. The gardens are a particular feature of the cottage, arranged predominately to the side and rear of the property enjoying a sunny south-west facing aspect. The main garden has been beautifully landscaped with a large sun terrace off the garden room and steps up to good sized lawns enclosed with well-established shrub borders. There is a further small courtyard garden to the front which enjoys a pleasant outlook over paddock land opposite the cottage.
