Certain to be of appeal to those looking for a quirky, character cottage, this quite unique, two storey, one bedroomed village retreat has undergone a programme of refurbishment in the recent past and is the result of the conversion of two former store rooms many years ago. The property has a newly-fitted, bespoke kitchen with striking marble-style worktops and a built-in oven and hob, all combining aesthetically with the flagstone floor.

There are two doors leading onto the easterly-facing, hideaway rear garden and a spiral stone staircase which ascends to the first floor bedroom and in turn, an archway leads through a walk-in wardrobe to a stylish bathroom with apex ceiling and roll-top, freestanding bath. Other features include recently installed gas-fired central heating from a combination boiler and the property has been stylishly decorated throughout, in keeping with the property's character.

Forming part of the street scene of the village, and once believed to have been used as a shop, the property could not be more centrally located, only a few strides from Blockley shop and cafe and mid-way between the two public houses in the village: the Crown Hotel and the family-owned Great Western Arms. Many walks can be enjoyed through the village into Dovedale Woods and the surrounding countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Blockley village is located mid-way between the Cotswold cafe society of Chipping Campden and the more traditional market town of Moreton-in-Marsh, where there are rail links to London Paddington.
