This is a unique, period home (14th Century!) with three double bedrooms, situated in Charlton Kings, approximately 2 miles away from the centre of Cheltenham and includes off road parking for two cars.

Also within easy reach are the railway station, coach and bus routes and Cheltenham Racecourse – home of The Gold Cup.

As the Western Gateway to The Cotswolds, the property is also a well-positioned base for touring the surrounding countryside, towns and attractions.

Cheltenham is renowned as a festival town with Jazz, Music, Science, Film and the longest-running Literature Festival in the country. New this year is the Cheltenham Design Festival which was held at the Parabola Arts Centre, Cheltenham Ladies College in Apri

The core of the house dates back to the 14th Century, with more modern 17th Century additions, and is furnished in a style true to its roots, having been the subject of a 'Grand Designs' renovation project a number of years ago. It is a lovingly maintained quirky building which is packed full of period, character features.

The front door brings you into a small entrance hall and then into the dining room – the 14th century core of the house – which boasts a large inglenook fireplace complete with working fire, exposed beams, a piano and a beautiful solid wood table with benches and chairs that will seat 6-8 people comfortably.

In one direction from the dining room you pass through the study to reach the large farmhouse kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with a Smeg fridge freezer, an Esse range cooker (similar to an Aga), a gas hob, microwave oven, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, kettle, toaster and ample crockery and cutlery. There is also a small dining table, with seating for 4, and a door leading out to the pretty garden and pond.

In the other direction from the dining room you will find a beautifully furnished sitting room with another large Cotswold stone inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, exposed beams and seating for 6.

On the first floor there are 3 double bedrooms.

From the study you will find stairs up to a landing and the master bedroom. They are of a ladder style and are not suitable for anyone with restricted mobility as they are quite steep and unconventional.

There is a lovely open fireplace and a log burner and back up central heating, however, this is a C14th house and not known for brilliant insulation so advisable to bring an extra jumper and slippers :)
