Description

This Grade II listed black and white cruck cottage is estimated to be approximately 400 years old, it benefits from countryside views and has character features throughout to include timber beams, an inglenook fireplace with multi-fuel burner, latched windows, oak doors and vaulted ceilings.  The interior has been sympathetically restored over the years and includes lounge, dining room, kitchen and bathroom.  To the first floor are two double bedrooms.  The pretty corner garden includes fruit bushes and an apple tree, vegetable plots, terraced areas and is complemented by a countryside backdrop.  There is off road parking to the rear for several vehicles. This is a delightful country/holiday home or investment opportunity. 

The property is believed to have been a farm building/stable and the lounge once a small chapel, the chimney was added approximately 200 years ago.  The timber beams were originally obtained from sailing boats at Gloucester or Sharpness harbours, these beams display remnant nails, minor crustacea borings and "Lamb's Tongue" stop cuts visible at the end of some timbers which confirm approximate age of construction.
