STONE, WOOD OR AN INGLENOOK FIREPLACE - PERIOD FEATURES THAT REALLY GIVE A HOUSE CHARACTER

Three Cotswold homes packed with period character - on the market with Butler Sherborn - from £550,000 - £1.75 million

When a home is described as ‘having character’, it is often period features such as oak beams, exposed stonework, a flagstone floor, wood panelling or an inglenook fireplace that make it stand out and command a higher value.

While we want our houses to be warm, comfortable, well equipped and with decent broadband speed, it is these period features that really make the difference.

Three such properties have recently come on the market in the Cotswolds, and are available through the specialist independent estate agency in the region, Butler Sherborn.

Note to editors:

The Cotswolds
The Cotswolds are located in the heart of England and within the counties of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Wiltshire.  It is the largest designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales, and very roughly starts to the east of Gloucester and Cheltenham in the west, runs up to just below Evesham in the north, includes parts of West Oxfordshire where Burford is known as the Gateway to the Cotswolds, and south to the Cotswold Water Park a few miles beyond Cirencester, the former Roman city and Capital of the Cotswolds.

With excellent road and rail communications - London, Bristol and Birmingham are all within an hour by train - the area has become popular with those moving out of the city or wanting second homes to escape at weekends.
