DESCRIPTION Jasmine Cottage is a charming and traditional Cotswold stone detached period cottage discreetly tucked away in the quintessential Gloucestershire village of Kingscote. Believed to be one of the oldest properties within the village where there is a 13th Century church, the cottage is identified in the 1838 Tithe Map and does not appear to the listed. The cottage has been recently refurbished with a new electric central heating system, a new kitchen and remodelling of the first floor to install an upstairs bathroom substituting for a useful utility room on the ground floor. It is considered there is further scope for development with a rear extension subject to the usual planning consents.
The property displays an array of its original period features including exposed timber beams and stone walls whilst the accommodation has been redecorated complete with new flooring throughout. On the ground floor, there is a good-sized dual aspect living room with large fireplace featuring a bread oven. The modern kitchen/breakfast room has been newly installed with timber units matching the separate utility room. There is a further WC/cloakroom. Upstairs, there are two double bedrooms and a new bathroom with stylish shower over bath.
The cottage has a delightful garden, a small garage/store and potential for further off-road parking if required. The mature garden is laid to lawn with well-established trees and shrub borders around.
