The property is a beautifully restored and renovated Cotswold cottage, in approximately half an acre of largely walled, landscaped and almost completely private grounds. Set in the Uley Conservation Area and Cotswold AONB, it lies on the edge of the village, bounded by open countryside to East and South, with Uley Valley and its beech woods beyond.

The original gable of the cottage dates back to the 18th C, as do the walls of what was the kitchen garden of neighbouring Grade II* Listed Stouts Hill House. The cottage was home to successive gardeners, before extension and modernisation in the late 20th C.

The timber and part glazed front door leads into the entrance hallway, which features oak flooring and an elegant staircase. From here the oak flooring continues through to the large and light triple aspect sitting room, with an open fire. The oak flooring extends from the hall into the dining room, which has other period features, such as exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace and a custom made built-in display cabinet. From the dining room there is an inner cloakroom, with a full-height bookshelf wall and storage for coats, leading to a downstairs bathroom.

Part-glazed double doors open from the dining room into the kitchen and breakfast room, with a range of bespoke oak and hand-painted wall and base cabinets, under an oak block counter with an inset ceramic sink and integral dishwasher. The hub of the kitchen is the centrally located island unit with a granite worktop. The three oven Aga sits within the chimney breast, which is open, allowing the breakfast room to become an integral part of the kitchen. From the breakfast room glazed oak French doors open onto the patio and garden. Off this room there is a pantry and utility room, with Ikea kitchen units, shelving, double "Belfast" sink, and fitted dishwasher. There is also space for an additional cooker, two fridges or freezers, tumble dryer and plumbing for a washing machine. From the breakfast room a part-glazed oak door leads to a corridor which is itself glazed along its garden aspect, and served by doors on either side for access to the grounds. This corridor leads to the light and spacious master bedroom, which is dual aspect to take advantage of the morning sunlight and views into the garden. The room has engineered oak flooring, a built-in double wardrobe with oak doors, and an en suite shower room.

At first floor level there are three further double bedrooms, the largest with built-in wardrobes along one wall. The bedroom above the kitchen has a charming view across the garden, through the moon-gate and on to the pond and fountain. To complete the first floor accommodation there is a newly upgraded family shower room. From the short corridor an original spiral staircase leads to the large and light attic room, with exposed beams. This room is currently used as a study and occasional additional bedroom.

The secluded but sunny half acre garden is enclosed at the rear, and also divided by, the impressive 18th Century brick walls which act as the perfect backdrop to the landscaped grounds. There are four distinct areas; the drive with parking, a formal aesthetic garden, a large terraced area with gazebo and pond, and a formal kitchen garden, which echoes its history.

A particularly attractive feature of the garden is that it is almost completely private.

The gravel driveway and parking is accessed through the automated wooden entrance gates. The parking area provides ample space for numerous vehicles and is screened

by mature beech hedging. The gravel drive continues round to the front of the property and the formal garden, with a large lawn flanked on either side by mature planting. A brick moon-gate frames the entrance to the terrace, with box parterre, pond and flowerbeds. The oak gazebo and flagstoned terraces are perfect for outdoor entertaining.

A gateway through the brick and stone dividing wall leads to the kitchen garden, with box lined paths and formal squares, a large asparagus bed and further raised beds for other vegetables. Between this and the driveway are more formal lawns flanked by mature beech and box hedging.
