The charming interior space has been extended and remodelled by the current owners creating a very comfortable living environment that is both light, spacious and finished with great attention to detail.

The heart of most family homes is the kitchen/diner and here in Rose Cottage the spacious room is full of character and function

with ample storage in the fitted cream shaker style kitchen with Belfast sink, complemented by the warmth of solid wooden

flooring and worktops. Exposed beams and oil fired Aga, plumbing for a dishwasher, integrated electric hob and microwave. There is ample space for a dining table where a feature window overlooks the garden, a staircase with storage beneath leads to the first floor. A useful entrance porch opens via a stable door into the kitchen.

The two reception rooms are both of good proportion and offer flexibility to suit a variety of lifestyles. The extended sitting room

benefits from a part vaulted ceiling with velux rooflights and windows overlooking the garden, the focal point is the fireplace

housing the woodburning stove with built in storage to either side.

The second reception room is currently used as a family room, fitted with solid oak flooring and a wood burner; as with the whole

cottage the neutral decoration enhances the light feel. French doors open out to the garden. To the rear of the family room a

door opens into a useful utility area housing washing machine and tumble dryer and a contemporary designed shower room with

double rainfall shower, basin and WC.

To the first floor a long landing accesses all rooms; to the far end a spacious master bedroom has dual aspect and built-in

wardrobes. Beautiful family bathroom with clawfoot bath, separate shower, basin and WC. There are two further double bedrooms

and a large single bedroom with built-in storage.

The garden is a delightful feature of this fine home enjoying a Southwesterly aspect, combining areas of lawn with deep planted borders and clipped hedging bound by Cotswold stone walls, creating a sheltered and private environment in which to enjoy this peaceful village location.

The accommodation is further enhanced by a large (4.5m x 4.8m) bespoke timber outbuilding used as a home office, studio or games room. It is fully insulated and double glazed with power, lighting, timer controlled electric heating and solid wooden flooring. One end has a full height bank of glazing with French doors, combined with the roof lights flooding it with light.

LOCATION

Preston lies 1½ miles east of Cirencester and much of the Village is in a Conservation Area. Until the last century the community was largely agricultural with farmhouses, cottages, a school and the Rectory close to the 11th century church. The more recent houses, including bungalows, line the single village street. Whilst there is neither a pub nor a shop, there is a busy, well equipped Village Hall and, at Village Farm, a thriving group of small commercial units. A Tesco Superstore is just a few minutes by car.
