Characterful terraced cottage with three bedrooms, in this popular North Cotswold village

An imposing four-storey Cotswold stone period property dating back to the early 1800's

It was purchased by St. Dunstans (the charity for Blind People) and allocated to a soldier, blinded in the Great War of 1914-1918, as part of the Homes for Heroes movement

The ex-soldier was William Davies and he lived in the house until he died in 1948, with his widow remaining there until her death in 1965

The property was then purchased in 1968 by the current owners' family, who undertook some modernisation works in 2017, including new roof, new basement floor, and new lower staircase


Beggars Roost has flexible accommodation over four floors, with established rear gardens backing onto Blockley Brook

On the ground floor, is the dual aspect sitting room, with a wealth of period features, such as exposed ceiling beams, attractive fireplace and large panelled window with integral seating, and enclosed stairs to both the lower ground floor and first floor

On the lower ground floor, is the modern shaker-style kitchen/family room, with integrated gas oven and hob, built-in dishwasher, stainless steel sink unit, space for fridge/freezer, built-in larder cupboard and central island. The overall space is further enhanced with an attractive fireplace incorporating a cast-iron wood-burner, oak wooden flooring and views down the garden leading to the brook. There is a wc off the kitchen

On the first floor, is the large principal bedroom, with a fitted triple wardrobe and original fireplace

Siding onto the bedroom, is the main family bathroom, which has stunning views across the countryside, and is generous in size, with a tongue and groove panelled bath, vanity wash-hand basin, low-level wc and a double shower cubicle with mains-operated shower over. An airing cupboard houses the gas central heating boiler and also has plumbing for a washing machine

On the second floor, is a spacious landing which could be utilized as a study area

There are two further double bedrooms, both serviced by a well-appointed shower room, with double cubicle with mains-operated shower over, period-style heated rail/radiator, vanity wash-hand basin and low-level wc
