Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Forming an integral part of the street scene at the fashionable Dovedale end of the High Street in Blockley village, this end terraced, three storey, Grade II Listed, three double bedroomed country home is the result of the combination of two properties many years ago and has therefore a particularly individual internal design which must be viewed first hand to be fully appreciated.

The property has two very atmospheric reception rooms, both with inglenook fireplaces, one of which is used for a real fire. There are many exposed beams throughout the property, built-in window seats to the front rooms and four individual staircases.

Modernised towards the end of the last century, the property now needs a further programme of improvement to fully maximise its potential. There is, however, an extended breakfast kitchen to the rear of the property, with some bespoke fitted units and a skylight window to one section, creating a light and airy atmosphere. Another intriguing feature is a separate staircase from one of the first floor bedrooms leading to its own en-suite shower room, dressing room and landing area. There is gas-fired central heating to the whole of the property.

Externally, the property has an enclosed, westerly-facing patio garden to the rear.

For those looking for a period home full of innate character and charm to enhance and embellish to their own requirements in one of the most sought after villages in the Cotswolds, this property will be of certain appeal.

The High Street in Blockley is in effect a cul de sac culminating in Dovedale Woods, from which many beautiful walks can be enjoyed in the surrounding countryside and the famous Blockley Brook.

The village 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 also rail links to London Paddington.

Blockley has its own village shop and tea room, which occasionally opens for evening meals, and there is a warm welcome to be enjoyed at the Great Western Arms, with the village also being served by the Crown Hotel. The village has its own primary school and is within the catchment area for Chipping Campden secondary school.
