An incredible opportunity to acquire an attractive detached Cotswold home within an extensive plot with planning granted to build a detached home of 2,000 Sq Ft in the sought-after village of Cranham
Jingle Cottage offers a rare opportunity to acquire a superb home, set back from the road, within a plot of over two thirds of an acre, with planning approved, for the addition of a new build house within the grounds. It is located just eight miles south of Cheltenham in the glorious Cotswold village of Cranham, an area surrounded by fields, a common and ancient woodlands.
Built in the 1960s in a traditional Cotswold style, Jingle Cottage is a charmingly presented detached family home. Due to the size of the plot and the natural layout of the house, Jingle Cottage would lend itself to an extension and redevelopment, creating an exceptional and state of the art property, subject to planning (and if so desired). Much of the appeal of this lovely home is the setting, which allows for views from every window in the bedrooms and reception space, flooding the entire house with natural light. Internally the house spans 2289 Sq Ft, offering well-presented and flexible accommodation over two floors of generous proportions.
Entry is gained through a reception hall opening to the reception space, with interconnecting rooms, yet all separate to provide practical and functional living space. The sitting room, with log burner, is set to one side opening to a glass conservatory with double doors out to a sun terrace and to the gardens beyond. The dining room, also with log burner, connects to the sitting room and kitchen, making an ideal space for entertaining. A large utility is accessed from a further outside door, also used as a boot room adjacent to a cloakroom with shower. The arrangement on this floor has allowed for a bedroom, in addition to its own adjoining reception room/study, with double doors opening to outside. This area lends itself to a level of self-containment, ideal for an au pair, relative or guest suite. A carport and garage/workshop are accessed from the utility room.
On the first floor are four excellent double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The plans for the separate dwelling, reinterpret the traditional Cotswold stone homes of the area yet in a more contemporary design. The ethos behind the new build is to take advantage of the landscape in the heart of this picturesque village. The proposed planning would allow for accommodation of 2,000 Sq Ft set over two floors, to include an open plan kitchen/dining room on the ground floor, with a glorious sitting room and four bedrooms on the first floor. The property will also benefit form its own large gardens and a double garage with parking.
In all, a charming home with a rare building plot within the grounds and the chance to further extend and redesign the current property (STP), all occupying a beautiful position in the heart of tranquil Cotswold life, more akin to a country retreat, Cotswold bolt hole or of course permanent home.
A winding gravel driveway is the approach to this lovely home, to a turning area, garage, and ample parking. The entire space, grounds and formal garden of Jingle Cottage are just beautiful, surrounding the property and with many interesting facets. Well established, there is an array of specimen and fruit trees, plants, and flower beds. It is vibrant and colourful during all seasons of the year and an idyllic spot for any gardening enthusiast or those that enjoy a tranquil setting with hidden seating spots arranged in various areas of the gardens. The split of the plot, will allow for both properties to have a large area of garden each, not encroaching on individual space. There is a summerhouse/studio within the rear garden, an ideal home office or outdoor playroom for children. There is rear access to the cricket field and the common, directly from the property.
