A delightful cottage style two bedroom house, overlooking the Millennium Green, and offering a 70% affordable home.

Built in 2005 the well planned and neatly presented accommodation consists of an above average sized entrance hall with cloakroom, fitted kitchen/dining room, a spacious sitting room with and a door leading into the rear garden, two excellent double bedrooms, the front of which enjoys the best of the views, and a bathroom with a modern white suite.

The house features traditional cottage style double glazed casement windows in keeping with the Conservation Area, gas fired radiator central heating, easily maintained gardens to the front and rear and the valuable asset of two dedicated parking spaces.

The property is offered to the market at ££217,000 which is the owners 70% stake of the £310,000 valuation agreed on behalf of Cotswold District Council. The appealing aspect of this arrangement is that the qualifying purchaser does not pay any rent to the Local Authority for the 30% that they do not own, however there are restrictions that apply.

As the property us within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a covenant restricts the purchaser to have a local connection. i.e. to have lived or worked in Gloucestershire AONB for a continuous period over the last three years. We will require written proof in order to authorise the sale.
