An absolute gem in this popular town. Millend Cottage situated close to the town's old mill is in a quite location behind the medieval town square and with the added benefit of private parking. This Cotswold stone cottage is unusual in that it is flooded with light and benefits from good ceiling height throughout. The current owner has carried out a programme of improvements over the last few years and the result is a light, fresh and immaculately presented home. The entrance hall and drawing room have oak wooden floors, the latter having a triple aspect and a fireplace with wood burning stove. This is a well-proportioned room with a little study area. The sunny kitchen/breakfast room has a tiled floor and granite surfaces, Belling oven and hob, integral fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine and a door out onto the South/West facing terrace. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, one with an en-suite bathroom with a roll top bath. There is a separate shower room with double walk-in shower. All of the windows are double glazed and a new heating system has recently been installed. Outside, the charming sun terrace is bordered with a well-stocked herbaceous bed, a lovely setting for al-fresco dining. The garage is situated in a shared gravelled area approached via a five bar gate. This is a lovely secret spot. The lively market town of Northleach, one of the best kept secrets of the area and sitting within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 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 and the magnificent Medieval 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 gastro pub and restaurant. The streets in and around the ancient market place are rich in architectural interest - ranging from half-timbered Tudor houses to merchants' stores. 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 Kemble, Kingham and Charlbury stations (15, 15 and 18 miles respectively), taking about 90 minutes. The location of Northleach provides easy access to the M5, M4 and M40.
