Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
Forming an integral part of the street scene of this iconic North Cotswold village and taking its name from the superb panorama over gardens and countryside to the rear, this Grade II Listed, inner terrace, three storey, two bedroomed, village retreat combines the innate character and charm of a period home with some of the more contemporary refinements of modern day living and should be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.

The property is raised half a storey from the High Street and has an entrance to the living room but the most used entrance is on the lower ground floor where there is a spacious tiled hallway leading to recently modernised kitchen with patio doors forming picture windows of the rear garden and treescape. There are attractive marble worktops, integrated appliances and light and airy atmosphere.

The property has three elm staircases, many pointed stone walls, some exposed and painted beams and, when ascending through the floors, the views become even more outstanding.

Other refinements include a homely wood burning stove to the sitting room, gas fired central heating from a combination boiler, a renewed bathroom suite with a shower and most windows have secondary double glazing.

The property is located mid way along Blockley High Street, which terminates in Dovedale woods from which there are many glorious walks either in the surrounding hills or along the cascading Blockley Brook which bisects the village. The village has two public houses, a very trendy village cafe and adjacent super market, its own primary school and a village hall, host to many plays and concerts.

The village is positioned midway between the Cotswold cafe society of Chipping Campden and the more traditional market town of Moreton-in-Marsh where there are rail links to London Paddington.
