AVAILABLE VERY SHORTLY and for a LONG LET IF DESIRED, this EXTENSIVELY REFURBISHED 3 BEDROOM Grade II Listed estate lodge is quietly situated against a wooded backdrop within the grounds of the private Barnsley Park Estate on the outskirts of this pretty Cotswold village between Cirencester and Bibury.

COMPREHENSIVELY RENOVATED and to an EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH STANDARD, the DECEPTIVELY SPACIOUS and BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED property retains much character charm including wooden beams and open fireplace, whilst offering modern comforts such as CENTRAL HEATING, 2 showers and a particularly well-appointed modern, fitted kitchen.

With OUTSTANDING parkland views to the front, the detached Cotswold stone cottage has benefitted from an extensive programme of refurbishment and updating in recent times including flooring, fittings and stylish décor.

Of particular note with this property is the LARGE principal reception room with its wonderful triple aspect, high ceilings and central fireplace.

In addition to the fitted kitchen complete with integrated oven, hob and dishwasher, there is also a useful storage cupboard and a separate UTILITY area with space for further appliances.

Also on the ground floor is a welcoming entrance hallway and a SECOND RECEPTION ROOM offering flexibility of use as a study /home office or perhaps a guest, bedroom 3? Completing the ground floor is a practical SHOWER /CLOAKROOM with underfloor heating, walk-in double shower and stylish fittings.

To the first floor are found 2 LARGE DOUBLE BEDROOMS - BOTH WITH FITTED STORAGE and both enjoying the superb views across the neighbouring historic parkland. Also on this level is an impressive bathroom with a well-fitted modern style suite including a BATH WITH FITTED SHOWER OVER.

Externally the Lodge is surrounded by lawned gardens with flower borders and interspersed with established specimen trees. There is also a good-sized STORAGE SHED and there is OFF ROAD PARKING space for 2 cars.

Further benefits include oil fired CENTRAL HEATING and onsite Gigaclear SUPERFAST FIBRE BROADBAND.

As either a full time home or perhaps just as a weekend retreat, this BEAUTIFUL AND STYLISHLY REFURBISHED estate lodge cottage is well worth considering.

We are sorry but dogs, cats and other free roaming furry friends will not be considered at this property.
