A delightful detached Cotswold stone house with large rear garden and countryside views. Set in a sought after position on the edge of Bourton-on-the-Water.
Location - Newlands occupies a mature peaceful setting on the edge of the village. Bourton provides an excellent range of local facilities including boutique shops, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants, doctors, churches, a leisure centre, local primary school and the popular Cotswold secondary school. The larger commercial and cultural centres of Cheltenham, Cirencester and Oxford are within easy travelling distance and there are main line rail services at Kingham (8 miles) (Paddington 80mins approx) and a comprehensive local bus network radiating from Bourton. The village is set in the heart of the Cotswold Hills which provide a wide range of outdoor rural leisure pursuits.
Description - Newlands comprises a delightful detached house of traditional Cotswold stone elevations under a pitched Cotswold stone slate roof with single storey flat roof garage in Cotswold stone to the side. The property dates from the 1930's and retains considerable character and charm throughout and comes to the market for the first time in over 50 years. The property occupies one of the best locations in the village set back off a no through road in much sought after Hilcote Drive and offers further potential subject to any necessary consents.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors with three principal receptions rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room and cloakroom on the ground floor and three bedrooms, one en-suite and a family bathroom on the first floor. The property was individually designed and takes maximum advantage of the setting and aspect with many of the rooms having double aspect and the property has lots of natural light as a result.
