Grey Cottage is a superb Grade II listed house located in Lower Slaughter, one of the Cotswolds? most sought after villages.

Thought to date from 1860, the property enjoys a picturesque position within the village, set back from the lane behind wrought iron railings and overlooking the River Eye.

On the ground floor, the cottage boasts a recently fitted bespoke kitchen, as well a dining room with a stone fireplace and a comfortable drawing room.

The first floor provides three large bedrooms, while an extra room, currently arranged as an office and living room, occupies the entire second floor. This bright and airy room, with its spectacular village and countryside views and its exposed beams and chimney, could equally serve as a fourth bedroom.

At the rear of Grey Cottage is a beautifully landscaped garden and terrace. A wooden pergola frames a further terrace and barbeque area, and a shed and single garage are situated at the end of the garden.

Lower Slaughter is one of the Cotswolds? most popular villages, located just three miles from the market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, and two miles from Bourton-on-the-Water. Cheltenham and Cirencester are within around 18 miles, while commuters can take advantage of Kingham railway station (around eight miles away), which provides a regular service to London Paddington, with a journey time of around 90 minutes.

Gina Farrow, local partner at Butler Sherborn?s Stow-on-the-Wold office, said: ?The Grey Cottage is a fine example of a traditional Cotswold house in a picture-perfect location. The current owners have refurbished the property to a very high standard, with retained period features blending well with stylish modern additions. With the spacious interiors including three/four bedrooms, we expect this property to be of great interest to buyers.?
