About the property

***WATCH THE VIDEO TOUR*** Proudly positioned within the centre of the sought-after village of Winterslow is this three-bedroom detached cottage. The accommodation has been meticulously modernised throughout with contemporary features that complement the period nature of the property. The ground floor comprises a kitchen/diner with refined Shaker-style cabinet units and adjoining sleek quartz worktops, and a cosy sitting room with a central log burner. Upstairs there are three well-proportioned bedrooms, one of which is best catered to be a home office/study, which are served by the family shower room with its high-spec rainfall shower. Externally, the plot offers a driveway with ample space for two side-by-side cars to the front. Steps with adjoining raised flower beds rise through a timber gate to the property's primary entrance. Further steps then introduce the enclosed garden which is mostly laid-to-lawn and has an adjoining decking with plenty of room for al fresco seating, a perfect space for entertaining guests. The property also benefits from a garage and ample storage solutions and boasts a lovely position in a rural village with access to countryside walks on its doorstep.
