This beautiful property is just one of six riverside homes within this delightful village setting. The listed part of the building dates back to 1635 and is full of character features including beams.

The new extension of the property includes the most magnificent kitchen diner, with French doors out to the raised covered deck providing stunning views over the River Avon and beyond.

Avon cottage provides the best of both worlds. It has the charm and ambience of a pretty listed cottage, along with modern day comforts and efficiencies. The original cottage was lovingly restored and modernised in 1997, and the current vendors have continued this work to bring the cottage into the 21st century so that it will continue to be enjoyed for generations to come.

It’s elevated position allows glorious views and access to the River Avon, along with the safe knowledge that it has never flooded – or nearly flooded. Even with the long sloping garden approaching the river, the cottage has a “less than 0.1% long term flood risk from rivers or the sea” (categorised as “very low risk” gov.uk) which is the same as Buckingham Palace!

The substantial accommodation on offer includes a dining room, a reception room, a utility room, a ground-floor bedroom and a cloakroom, which form part of the listed building. The new extension built in 2021 includes a reception hallway, an office, a ground-floor shower room and a kitchen dining room.

Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms and a superb family bathroom. This level also forms part of the listed building and has plenty of character.

Outside, there is a sizeable, gravelled area to the front providing plentiful parking for multiple vehicles, with the added benefit of two-electric car charging points. The rear garden includes a raised covered deck and a sizeable lawned area with direct access to the riverside.

Avon Cottage is approached via a gravelled parking area leading to a wooden gate opening onto a paved pathway, which leads to the entrance door at the side of the property.

Reception hallway
As you enter the property you are greeted by a spacious and welcoming reception hallway, with herringbone style flooring and French doors and three windows to the side elevation allowing for plenty of natural light to pour in.

This modern hallway could easily be utilised as an informal seating area. There is an opening through to the kitchen dining room on your right and double doors to the dining room, which is situated on your left. There are also doors accessing the office and the ground-floor shower room.
