Located along The Street in the heart of Bibury, Sackville House is situated in an enviable waterfront position overlooking the River Coln with uninterrupted views over the garden to the river and water meadows to the front. This would make a lovely second home and has recently been let as both a holiday home and long term rental.

A latched door off The Street, set within the front garden wall opens to a flight of stone steps leading up to a glazed stable door, under a Cotswold stone tiled storm porch, which opens into the inviting reception room beyond. Characterised by classic period features, including exposed stone walls, beams, alcoves and a stone fire place with timber beam and cupboard over, fitted with an electric faux wood burner, the room also has plenty of natural light, with windows to both the side and front, with a window seat beneath the front window.

Off the reception is the kitchen with a range of wooden country cottage style wall and base units, and matching wooden worktops with inset ceramic sink and granite block. There is an electric hob cooker and space for a fridge and washing machine.

Arranged over four floors, stone steps by the kitchen lead down to a carpeted cellar with a side window, providing storage space or a snug. Stairs to the first and second floors lead off the reception room. Off the well-lit landing on the first floor is a dual aspect double bedroom; a bathroom fitted with a white suite, including roll top bath, pedestal sink and low level WC; and an airing cupboard.

A further flight lead up to the master bedroom in the loft. This room oozes character, with magnificent timber beams, exposed stonework and windows to the side and front elevations. There are wonderful views of the river from the dormer windows to the front.

To the front of the cottage is the garden with a path leading to the front door and a few small steps up to the lawn area. Surrounded by low lying box hedging and a few specimen trees, it is a lovely setting in which to relax and enjoy the river views.

SITUATION Six and a half miles northeast of Cirencester in Gloucestershire, Bibury is a charming, typically Cotswold village spanning both banks of the River Coln, a tributary of the Thames. Known for its honey-coloured seventeenth century stone cottages, it has been described as 'one of the world's most picturesque villages', and was once described by William Morris as 'the most beautiful village in England'. The village has a post office, The William Morris Tearoom, The Catherine Wheel Pub, The Swan Hotel, Bibury Court Hotel, Bibury Trout Farm, and the Saxon church of St. Mary's.
