The sale of Turnpike Cottage represents a unique opportunity to purchase a piece of local history. This landmark property comprises a detached Grade II Listed former Turnpike or Toll House with elevations chiefly of stone under a slate roof. The property has been sensitively extended to the rear and side, and provides surprisingly spacious accommodation with character features.
The rear entrance lobby via a stable door with stained obscure glazing, leads into the well appointed kitchen/breakfast room with a vaulted ceiling. Next you will discover a utility area and bathroom. The front door, possibly an original feature leads to an open hallway with wooden flooring and exposed stone wall, To the front is the hexagonal dining room with beautiful leaded mullion windows and a stone fireplace. Further along the hallway is a more modern addition, a sizeable living room with a gas fired log burner and French doors leading onto the rear garden. Also on the ground floor is the main bedroom with a full range of fitted wardrobes and a luxurious en-suite shower room.
The first floor has two bedrooms, one again is hexagonal and both retain the period features that are so beautiful.
Externally to the rear and side of the property there are good size gardens and a large Cerney gravelled off-road parking and turning space. The gardens are well kept with an aged beech tree centrally, lawn area, patio area and additional parcel of land to the end, that could be opened into or maybe used for other options. Read more
