Description Westend Cottage is a superb detached period cottage situated in a peaceful elevated position on the edge of Avening with breath-taking views over the Gatcombe Valley. Constructed of attractive natural Cotswold stone, the cottage has undergone a stunning transformation by the current owners with remodelling throughout and bringing the property up to an excellent modern standard ideal for family living. The deceptively spacious accommodation extends in all to 2,310 sq.ft. Arranged over two floors enjoying far reaching views from every window.

The ground floor is entered through an impressive entrance hall with a cloakroom off and double oak doors opening to a good-sized triple-aspect living room which has a new bespoke stone carved fireplace, wood burning stove and side door to the garden. At the heart of the home there is a magnificent kitchen/dining room which is heated with underfloor heating. The beautifully fitted kitchen has Quartz worksurfaces, a large breakfast bar at the centre, a walk-in larder and a range of built in appliances including an electric Range cooker and water softener. There is a further reception room and a utility room which has been thoughtfully designed to create ample built-in storage.

On the first floor, a generous landing provides room for a study/home office if required. There are four double bedrooms in all, two of which with excellent en-suites whilst the master bedroom boasts ample storage. The family bathroom has a shower over bath and a large cupboard.

Externally, the cottage benefits from a detached garage with parking in front located opposite the property. The garage has power and a high vaulted ceiling with potential for conversion subject to planning. The south-facing gardens are arranged over two principal levels, an enclosed patio leads off from the living room and has a front gate to the lane, whilst steps lead up to a rear lawn with established fruit trees and shrub borders backing onto open countryside.

Situation The cottage enjoys a peaceful and picturesque position on the edge of Avening set down a quiet no-through lane with a host of scenic walks available straight off the doorstep including the Macmillan Way Path. Avening has two public houses, a village hall, an excellent primary school and parish Church. The property is located on the northern edge of Avening within walking distance to the well-known Minchinhampton Golf Club, boasting two 18 hole courses, as well as Gatcombe Park, the home of The Princess Royal and Gatcombe Horse Trials. Avening is conveniently located between Tetbury and Nailsworth, both of which have an excellent range of facilities including shops, public houses and primary schools with a secondary school at Tetbury. There is an excellent choice of both public and private schools within the area including Beaudesert Park near Minchinhampton. Also within the local area are a number of places of interest including the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum with some 18 thousand trees and shrubs in approximately 600 acres of landscaped grounds, and over 600 acres of National Trust common land at Minchinhampton.

Services & tenure We understand the property is Freehold with oil fired central heating, a shared cesspit tank and mains water.
