Detached black and white period cottage offering a wealth of charm and character. Exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces, stone floors and a country style kitchen plus en suite to master bedroom, driveway parking for several vehicles and a private enclosed rear garden with barn style outbuildings
Welcome to Post Box Cottage, a wonderful example of a period black and white detached cottage, full of character and charm and originally believed in part to date back to 1675. Having owned the property for the last five years, the current owners have decided to relocate and so present the house to the market.
Located on the edge of Cheltenham, the centre of town can be accessed within a ten-minute drive, yet the Gallagher Retail Park is within striking distance and offers a supermarket, petrol station and a range of national, well known shops and eateries. For the commuter, the property is also well positioned with access to the M5 (J10) nearby as is the A38 which provides links to the City of Gloucester as well as the Medieval town of Tewkesbury.
Returning to the property, the frontage offers a large block paved driveway which provides ample parking for several vehicles and leads to the main front door. Once inside the charm of the cottage is evident to see. There are exposed beams throughout the property as well as stone floors and stone-built inglenook fireplaces found in both formal reception rooms. Downstairs offers an open entrance hall, cloakroom and a study. Found within the older part of the building are the two reception rooms and the kitchen. Both the living room and dining room have inglenook fireplaces with the living room having a log burner inset whilst the dining room is an open fire. The kitchen is very fitting with the period of the property, country in style with a Belfast sink and range cooker yet modern touches can be found to include granite work surfaces and a tiled stone floor.
The final room to the ground floor is what was once the post office. Added onto the original property some years ago, this rooms gives versatility to the house and either provides an additional reception space or fourth bedroom.
Upstairs the charm of the building continues and there are more exposed beams, curved walls and changes in the overall ceiling height as you walk through the upper level. In total there are three bedrooms to this floor and the family bathroom which has a free standing roll top bath.
Both the master bedroom and guest bedroom have fitted wardrobes with the master bedroom also has an en suite shower room.
Outside, the rear garden is enclosed and private and has a side gated access. There is a large patio area and a further section of lawn. Finally, there are three barn style outbuildings that are currently used for storage yet subject to relevant planning permission being granted, could offer so many more alternatives to potentially include a gym or even separate ancillary accommodation.
Directions From the office in the Promenade leave Cheltenham along the Tewkesbury Road passing Gallagher Retail Park. Pass the fire station on your left and just after this, the property can be located on the right hand side of the road as denoted by our For Sale sign
