Broadway in Gloucestershire is often described as an English spectacle village. It’s a historic place full of independent shops and restaurants, with a pretty main street lined with horse chestnut trees.
It regularly draws visitors with its charming appearance, stunning location, and mix of period houses and quaint Cotswold stone cottages. If you’re looking for a change of scenery, you won’t get much better than this.
This leads us nicely to a beautifully remodeled cottage that has just been put up for sale in Snowshill (2.5 miles from Broadway) – a quintessential retreat if you will. Let’s take a look at what you can expect for its £ 895,000 price tag.
Exterior of the chalet by the bank
Set in an elevated position in the village, the Bankside is a traditional stone cottage which overlooks the local church and offers some of the most beautiful countryside views. A cobblestone driveway marks the approach, but it’s the pale green window and door frames that caught our eye, along with the vines and colorful flowers.
Isn’t that pretty?
You will be spoiled for choice when it comes to spending time in this cottage, the ground floor of which houses three reception areas, including this living room with a magnificent inglenook fireplace.
Neutral living room ideas are punctuated with pops of red-brown, cushions galore, and a large beige leather ottoman that’s perfect for putting your feet up at the end of a long day.
Right next to the kitchen is the neat dining room. From the brick wall and stone floor to wood-framed doors and painted furniture, this room showcases a true mix of textures that make it interesting, unique and ideal for family dinners.
You’ll have plenty of storage space in the kitchen, which includes a range of modern Shaker-style units, built-in appliances, and wood work surfaces – with the layout offering a lesson in how to plan a kitchen.
On the first floor you will find three bedrooms, all of which have characteristic cottage features, such as beamed ceilings and wonderfully wobbly walls. Each has been designed to feel lavishly comfortable with soft-touch fabrics, from plush gathered curtains to velvet headboards and layered throws and blankets.
If you want the wow factor, then this copper tub from Catchpole & Rye will definitely give it to you. It’s all the more eye-catching because the wall behind it has been half-paneled and painted a dark midnight shade.
Outside, this impressive south-facing rear garden should satisfy anyone looking for a chalet with land. There is a generous terrace next to the dining room, a large lawn, a garden store and even a summer house.
The property is currently listed with Knight Frank for £ 895,000.
