  • Bedrooms: 3
Positioned at the fashionable Dovedale end of Blockley High Street within ear shot of the gently cascading Blockley Brook, this particularly attractive semi detached, two storey, three bedroomed Cotswold country retreat combines the inate character and charm of a period home with many of the contemporary requirements for modern day living.

Character features of the property include a particularly welcoming dining hall through a recently constructed oak framed porch and antique studded door. There is a stunning apex ceiling to the master bedroom which also has an en-suite shower room and there is a pretty enclosed southeasterly facing rear garden. There are views to be enjoyed in two directions towards the countryside.

More contemporary requirements of the property include gas fired central heating from a combination boiler with many roll top radiators. There are stylish bathroom suites, one with a roll top bath, a stylish fitted kitchen with granite worktops and a range of built in appliances. The entrance hall is rarely used and positioned to the front of the property which now incorporates ground floor cloakroom and utility room.

Scenic walks can be enjoyed directly from the property and the surrounding countryside through Dovedale Woods and at the other end of the high street, the property has two village pubs, together with a shop and tea rooms, that has now become the hub of the village.

Blockley is located midway between the cosmopolitan cafe society of Chipping Campden and the more traditional market town of Moreton in Marsh where there are rail links for London Paddington.
