Dormer Cottage is an attractive Grade II Listed stone cottage situated in the heart of the highly sought after village of Aston Magna. The original part of this charming cottage is believed to date back to 1750 with further extensions to the rear added more recently. The property itself has been much improved by the current owner, including having a new roof in 2016 and a Lugarde office/studio built at the end of the garden. The accommodation, which boasts a wealth of character features, briefly comprises: Sitting Room with feature stone fireplace and inset Clearview wood-burning stove, Kitchen/Diner with a range of integrated appliances, bathroom and two bedrooms. Outside there is side pedestrian access leading to the well-tended rear garden which extends to approximately 100’ and is divided into a patio area immediately to the rear with a lawn leading down to the detached garden office/studio. There is also a useful stone outbuilding. Internal inspection is highly recommended.
AGENT'S NOTE: This property is subject to a Section 157 agreement giving local people an automatic consent to purchase; anyone from out of the area must get approval to purchase. Further clarification can be obtained from our office or from the housing department of Cotswold District Council. All ex-council properties are restricted to use as a main residence and not as a second or holiday home. The Section 157 restriction was designed to help local properties to be available and affordable to local people. This is important in areas like the Cotswolds where people would like to move to from other parts of the country or invest in a holiday home.
