Clare Cottage is set in the heart of a Cotswold village but, thanks to its elevated position, still manages to enjoy some lovely views across the surrounding countryside.

The outlook into Snowshill village is also a pretty one as the cottage faces the picturesque church and period buildings surrounding it.

Just a mile and a half south of Broadway, Snowshill stands high on the Cotswold escarpment with plenty of opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors.

It boasts an excellent village pub and a renowned manor that is now owned by the National Trust.

Clare Cottage is thought to date from the mid 18th century but has undergone an extensive scheme of modernisation.

Traditional oak double doors lead into the entrance porch and then to the reception hall where there is polished oak strip flooring, exposed beams and traditional oak doors.

The oak flooring continues into the sitting room which has an open fireplace with stone surround and log store and a wide bay window with deep window seats.

In the open plan kitchen/breakfast room a range of classic Smallbone cupboards line the walls. It has a central oak dresser and deep limestone sink and electric Aga with an electric cooker module.

Limestone flooring extends throughout and into the wonderful oak framed orangery with various exposed timbers and underfloor heating.

From the kitchen area a door opens into a boot room with a deep butlers sink, which leads into a laundry room and a fully fitted shower room.

Upstairs there is a large landing with polished oak floor and craftsman-made oak wardrobes.

At the back of the house the master bedroom has lovely views over the garden to Oat Hill. A ceramic tiled floor leads into the en suite shower room with marble tiling.

 

Bedroom two has polished oak flooring and wonderful views across the village and rolling countryside.

An en suite cloakroom is fitted with a bidet, washbasin, toilet and a range of built-in wardrobes which could provide space for a bath or shower if required.

Bedroom three is another double. This is served by the main bathroom which is fitted with a roll top bath, dado panelling and marble floor tiling.

Sanitary fittings are Villeroy and Bosch and Perrin and Rowe.

Outside the cottage, a former stables has been converted at one end into a comfortable office/music room with an oak stable door and ceramic floor.

The remaining two stables provide storage and workshop accommodation.

At the front of the cottage there is a tarmac drive and parking area.

A path leads around the cottage to the formal terraced garden with various eating and sitting areas, small lawn, raised flower beds and a water feature. Beyond lies an orchard and rough mown grass planted with a variety of fruit trees and an elevated seating area. The plot extends to about 0.4 acres.

Every day shopping facilities are nearby in Broadway.

A wider range of amenities are available in Cheltenham and Stratford upon Avon.
