DESCRIPTION Gamekeeper's Cottage is one of the most prominent and attractive properties set within the highly desirable Cutwell valley in the Cotswold market town of Tetbury. The sought-after location is favoured for its picturesque outlook over the ford meandering through the surrounding countryside and yet is situated just a 10 minute walk from the town centre. The property is steeped in history and notably features both the cut just outside the front of the house and the well within the garden which Cutwell valley is named after. Constructed of Cotswold natural stone in the mid-1800s, the property was owned by Robert Holford of the nearby Westonbirt Estate and was home to one of the Gamekeepers to the estate.
Today, the current owners have sympathetically renovated and extended the property updating it to a very high modern standard whilst retaining a wealth of the original charm and character. On the ground floor, a central entrance hall has two reception rooms either side. The living room has a feature stone fireplace and a fitted storage unit with shelving. The dining room features a wood burning stove with double doors leading to the light and airy kitchen/breakfast room which benefits from underfloor heating beneath limestone flooring. The kitchen is a particular feature of the property, boasting high ceiling with exposed oak timber beams and stone walling, the room is filled with natural light from skylights and windows overlooking the garden. The kitchen has been beautifully fitted by well-regarded local company Parlour Farm Kitchen with bespoke hand-painted units beneath granite surfaces incorporating a gas range cooker and built-in appliances. Off the kitchen there is rear lobby with a separate WC/utility and useful boot room with a dog shower.
On the first floor, there are four bedrooms which all enjoy a lovely outlook over fields opposite and a family bathroom fitted with both a separate shower and bath. An extension over the garage has created a spacious dual-aspect master suite complete with a stylish en-suite shower room.
Gamekeeper's Cottage has the advantage of off-road private parking for at least three cars in addition to a large garage which has power and lighting. The delightful gardens wrap around the property arranged mostly at the rear, enjoying a sunny south-facing aspect and a good degree of privacy. Steps lead up to the tiered garden which is landscaped with raised Cotswold stone flower beds, lawn and mature shrub borders. To the side there is a further lawn adjacent to a gravelled seating area and vegetable patch. The enclosed front garden is bound by Cotswold stone walling with a wisteria climbing the attractive front elevation.
