Occupying a hideaway location in the centre of Blockley village, yet only a few hundred yards away from the village green, Blockley shop and the Great Western Arms, this inner terraced, two storey, two bedroomed village retreat is positioned mid-way along a pedestrian pathway and is perfect for those looking for 'lock up and leave' accommodation or those wanting a holiday cottage for investment purposes.The property has an enclosed, westerly facing front garden, taking full advantage of the afternoon sun, well-planted and designed for ease of maintenance. The cottage itself has a porch with built-in seat, homely fireplace in the living room with a grate for a real fire, some exposed pointed Cotswold stone walls, and painted beams. More contemporary refinements include gas-fired central heating from a combination boiler, uPVC double-glazed windows, a modern fitted kitchen with a built-in oven and hob, and a stylish modern bathroom suite with built-in shower. Many people already living in Blockley do not know where the entrance to Mount Pleasant is, concealed at the end of St George's Terrace, with superb views over the village green towards distant countryside. The village has two public houses, a good-sized village shop and tea rooms, and is located mid-way between the Cotswold cafe society of Chipping Campden and the more traditional market town of Moreton-in-Marsh, where there are rail links to London Paddington.
