A substantial family house, owned by the same family since new, and extended over time to create an annexe. This large house has oodles of potential.

A substantial house, nestled in the corner of this sought after cul-de-sac, has been owned by the same family for over 50 years. The house has been adapted to provide an annexe for an elderly relative, so offers plenty of space for a large family.

Approached into a storm porch, this leads into the spacious hallway from which there are two cloakrooms. The side of the house was extended to incorporate a kitchen, sitting room, bedroom and small conservatory for an elderly relative; this has now been converted into a large 15ft by 25ft sitting room which has been known to host parties of 34, whilst the bedroom has been converted into a spacious home office. There is a useful storage area to one side which is perfect for storing wine.

The sitting room is cosy with a contemporary fire on the wall and double doors ready to throw open into the garden. The kitchen is a good size with a very large boot room/utility room with a door to the rear of the house. The dining room is dual aspect and a lovely size.

Upstairs on the first floor there are four bedrooms and a master suite. All the bedrooms have storage and a hand basin. There are two bathrooms and a separate cloakroom. The master bedroom overlooks the garden and has a walk in wardrobe with an adjacent en-suite shower room.

The attic space has been converted into two very useful rooms which could be used as an additional office or for crafts and hobbies.

Outside there is driveway parking to the front leading to a single garage, the rear garden is beautiful, well stocked with mature shrubs and trees, but mainly laid to lawn. At the rear of the garden there is access to the property along Cattle Lane, here there is more parking and a double carport.

Tetbury, often referred to as the gateway to the Cotswolds, and once voted by Country Life magazine as the third most desirable town in the country, is a thriving historic Cotswold market town situated less than half an hour from both the M4 and M5 motorways and within easy reach of Cirencester, Cheltenham, Bath, Bristol and Swindon. There is good access to Kemble Railway Station with regular Intercity services to London and other regional commercial centres.

Tetbury boasts an exciting range of shops including specialist boutiques, city standard delicatessens, the Highgrove Shop, two supermarkets and many fine antique shops. The town has an excellent variety of hotels, restaurants, cafes and brasseries offering a mouth-watering range of cuisine.

Tetbury is very fortunate to have excellent schools with St Mary's Primary and Sir William Romney Secondary being within a short walk of the town centre.
