Kentisbury is a pretty semi-detached period cottage in a charming setting within Shilton village. Enjoying views of part of the village and the surrounding countryside from its elevated position, the property has well-proportioned accommodation and is complemented by an enclosed garden at the rear of the house with a gated driveway providing parking.

Internally the accommodation, which could benefit from some updating, is arranged over the three floors and enjoys many period features throughout including exposed beams and stone mullion leaded windows. The ground floor provides an entrance hall, a charming sitting room enjoying a stone fire place and a welcoming kitchen/dining room located at the rear of the house with cloakroom and rear hall off. At first floor level are two double bedrooms and the family bathroom. Both bedrooms enjoy the views from the front of the house. A further double bedroom is arranged on the second floor.

Arranged at the rear of the house, the garden provides a pretty setting with a large herbaceous border and patio providing a secluded seating and al-fresco dining area. The utility room and workshop are located next to the house. Double gates from Church Lane open to the gravelled driveway.

SITUATION Kentisbury is located within the beautiful and unspoilt Cotswold village of Shilton with a pretty ford at its centre, an excellent public house at its heart and an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways. Within easy reach are a range of renowned restaurants and public houses including Daylesford Farm Shop, The Five Alls at Filkins, The Plough at Kelmscott and The Feathered Nest at Nether Westcote to name a few.

The Cotswold town of Burford provides a range of shopping facilities, catering for most everyday requirements, with primary and secondary schools, several public houses, restaurants, Burford Garden Centre and the Cotswold Wildlife Centre.
