Stonecote is a charming Grade II listed three bedroom cottage at the quieter end of Northleach High Street. It is a hugely characterful property and boasts features such as sash windows, a stone fireplace (with woodburning stove), some exposed stone walls, beams, oak and quarry tile flooring. The house is currently entered via the kitchen, which has stone steps leading up to the spacious but cosy living room. The kitchen/breakfast room has an electric Rangemaster cooker and hob, larder cupboard, boiler cupboard and leads through to another reception room and cloakroom with shower. The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and a lovely view out across the valley beyond. There are two further bedrooms and a bathroom. The enclosed garden is very slightly removed from the house and is a mix of shrubs, raised beds, a useful shed and also houses the oil tank. Dutton Lane is a narrow path which leads down to fields, a children's playground and footpaths beyond. The lively market town of Northleach, one of the best kept secrets of the area, is situated just off the Roman Fosse Way - in the very heart of the Cotswolds. It is a thriving town with a good selection of independent shops, a butcher, chemist, wine merchant, post office and village shop to name a few. There is also the primary school, doctors' surgery, community centre and Church. In the 18th Century the town became well known as a coaching stop on the London to Gloucester road, with many inns and hostelries - the most famous of which, The Wheatsheaf, survives today as a very popular pub and restaurant. The market towns of Cirencester, Burford and Stow on the Wold are all within easy reach. Cheltenham is the regional centre with its excellent shopping facilities and cultural opportunities. There is a direct rail service to London Paddington from both Kingham and Charlbury stations (14 miles and 18 miles respectively), taking about 90 minutes.
