High Street, Blockley, Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire. GL56 9EX

Guide price

Bedrooms: 2
Forming an integral part of the street scene in 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 terraced, 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 but the main entrance is on the lower ground floor to a spacious tiled hallway leading to a stylish contemporary fitted kitchen with underfloor heating and a good range of appliances, granite work tops and twin patio doors forming an outstanding vista over the patio garden and surrounding treescape, all with a 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 fire central heating from the recently renewed combination boiler, a modern bathroom suite with a shower and most windows having secondary double glazing and some being double glazed.

The property is located midway along the High Street which terminates in Dovedale woods from which there are many glorious walks, either in surrounding hills or along the cascading Blockley brook, which bisects the village. There are two public houses and a well used and very popular village cafe that doubles as a fine dining restaurant several evenings a week. There is an adjacent supermarket, a local primary school and a village hall which regularly hosts plays and concerts. Blockley is also famous for being a village where the television series Father Brown is filmed with visitors coming from all over the world to see the church and other buildings from the series.

Blockley is located mid-way between the Cotswold cafe society of Chipping Campden and the more traditional market town of Moreton in Marsh with railway links to London Paddington.
