Bedrooms: 4
Nestled within this delightful Cotswold village, this sympathetically extended cottage has many charms and surprises but could this be your perfect house ?

The village of Grittleton is one of those iconic Cotswold delights with attractive houses and beautiful countryside all within walking distance. Within its confines lies the charming Yew Tree Cottage, one of the few properties in the High Street which does not have a Grade II listing.

The cottage has been thoughtfully extended to create a balanced home which is large enough to accommodate a family but not too large for a down sizer but perfect for anyone who loves to entertain.

Approached into a wide, quite impressive hallway which has plenty of storage under the stairs, a contemporary shower room, a large utility room and a good size work from home study all leading off from the centre of the house. At the rear of the cottage is a stunning kitchen-diner-family room, plenty of room for a large table, a cosy sofa and a well thought out kitchen complete with electric Aga and an island with seating on two sides. Double doors are ready to be thrown open into the garden and roof lights create a light and airy feel.

An open plan snug is perfect as a TV room or has the versatility to be made into anything you need it for, perhaps a children's playroom or an extension of the kitchen. This opens into a more formal sitting room, complete with wood burning stove, plenty of seating and decorative storage.

Upstairs the staircase bends to the left where there is a large master bedroom with solid wood floors and views across the garden. Adjacent is the family bathroom with a bath and overhead shower. There is potential to create an en-suite shower room in the master bedroom. On the other side of the stairs there are two double bedrooms and a single bedroom.

Outside the arrival to the cottage has a chocolate box quality, the extension to the side is not immediately obvious and clever copying of details such as the round windows ensures that the character is not compromised. The garden to the front is private, mainly laid to lawn with a pathway leading to the front door. The rear garden is fully enclose with Cotswold stone walls, there are several eating areas and an attractive patio with a raised seating area.

There are two parking spaces at the end of the garden.

Grittleton is a popular Cotswold village with a thriving community spirit and social vibe. It has an excellent pub, the Neeld Arms, a church and a village hall and the Fosse Way, the historic Roman road crosses the village from North to Southwest.

Nearby Chippenham has a wide range of shops and services. There is a more comprehensive range of amenities available in the city of Bath, which is only 15 miles away to the South West, famous for its Georgian architecture.

The village lies close to both junctions 17 and 18 of the M4, allowing easy access to both Chippenham, Bath and Bristol. Chippenham Station is 6 miles away providing a regular direct rail service to London Paddington.

There are ample local sporting opportunities including a number of golf courses. The area has long been associated with equestrian pursuits, with National Hunt racing at Cheltenham and Newbury, polo at Westonbirt and Cirencester Park, hunting with the Beaufort, and horse trials at Badminton and Gatcombe. Within the village are various clubs including tennis and cricket clubs.

Gloucestershire and Wiltshire are noted for its schools. Private schools within daily driving distance include Westonbirt, Beaudesert Park at Minchinhampton, and the various schools in Cheltenham and Bath.
