Forming an integral part of this grade II listed former mill complex in the centre of Blockley village and offering a stunning panorama to the front in a southerly direction over the cascading Blockley brook (the former mill race), this recently upgraded upper ground floor, three bedroom, self contained apartment is ideal for those looking for accommodation on one level and internal inspection is strongly advised.
The realignment of rooms as a result of recent refurbishment now allows for a full depth open plan living room and kitchen fitted with a good compliment of units, two bedrooms to the front and one to the rear and a stylishly appointed bathroom with attractive tiling and an electric shower. The property has gas fired central heating from a combination boiler, upgraded wiring and there are tile floors to both the kitchen and the bathroom.
The character of the property is manifest in the many exposed beams, there is an Edwardian style fireplace in one of the bedrooms but most importantly the character is enhanced by the idyllic setting with communal gardens alongside the brook and an archway through the mill leads to further communal gardens with views over Snugborough Mill pond where there is a car park with the right to park one vehicle.
Blockley Court is located at the end of a cul de sac: Mill View, which in turn is located adjacent to the village green in Blockley and only a few hundred yards to the epicentre of the village with the church, the bowling green and Blockley village shop and tea rooms which is a community run operation. Blockley has two public houses, two hotels, a nursery and primary school and is within the catchment for Chipping Campden Secondary School.
In short the property would be an excellent main or second home and is perfect for those looking for a country retreat in one of the most popular villages in the North Cotswolds.
