Property Overview

This period property enjoys an ideal central location just a few of miles from the towns of Cheltenham, Tewkesbury and Gloucester providing lots of nearby options for employment, retail and recreation. There is also an excellent bus service to/from each of these towns. Closer to home in the village itself are an excellent Pub, Garage and very popular Farm Shop.

Situated in the ever popular Coombe Hill, Wharf Cottage is part of a secluded hamlet beautifully positioned right next to Coombe Hill Nature Reserve offering fantastic walks and stunning scenery no matter which way you walk.

The Wharf can be found through an archway of trees and the property is hidden away so fantastically that you really wouldn’t know it was down there unless you lived there yourself.

A pretty entrance path leads you up to the Cottage providing a natural and relaxing welcome to the property. When entering via an Oak stable door, the airy feeling of space and light created by a large roof lantern is a theme that is continued throughout the ground floor.

The spacious entrance hall provides direct access to all ground floor rooms including a modern fitted kitchen-diner with ample space for dining in the centre of this great room. The kitchen units continue through an archway into a utility space given light by a second roof lantern offering an open plan feel but with the necessary separation needed for washing and drying.

A modern shower room / cloakroom as well as a spacious living room are also found off the entrance hall with the living space boasting patio doors giving access to all of the summers light and also a wood burner for those cosy winter nights. The living room also benefits from period wood features.

Exploring upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms with the master bedroom enjoying built in wardrobes. All bedrooms are fitted with real wood flooring and are serviced by a gorgeous family bathroom.

The Cottage has been tastefully modernised and refurbished to a high standard by the current owners in recent years whilst still retaining much of the original character and features from period style handmade oak doors, oak skirting boards, unique archways and quirky nooks to make the most of all storage opportunities.

Externally Wharf Cottage enjoys a glass entrance canopy to make visitors feel welcome, a small cosy private garden featuring patio, lawned garden area and also a shed for outdoor storage at the head of its patch.

The Cottage is complimented further by an outdoor Annexe which has also been upgraded and modernised by the current owners and offers a spacious and flexible living space, separate en-suite plus a roomy loft area above. This building provides an array of options and opportunities for any new buyers.

The Annexe sits on a good sized plot of land also belonging solely to the owners of Wharf Cottage, providing the benefit of extra garden space, entertainment area or other options for any new owners. There is a large partially fenced natural stone patio area connecting the Annexe to the garden, which is laid to grass. The Annexe and Plot both lend themselves to development potential.

Wharf Cottage enjoys ample parking with 2-3 private spaces within the hamlet’s allocated parking, plus a further 3 spaces adjacent to the Annex and further parking options within the land around and opposite the Annex land.

All in all this is a unique property in a stunning location offering flexible accommodation with plenty of further potential.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC. EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
