A handsome attached Cotswold stone character property situated in the heart of the popular village of Avening with spacious, flexible accommodation, gardens, a garage and parking (Draft details)
A prominent position in the heart of the popular village of Avening for this handsome attached character house. This location allows for easy access to the village amenities and well regarded school with open countryside within easy reach. Built from Cotswold stone, the property combines two period properties with one thought to date back to the late 1700’s and a smaller, adjoining house to the side, built in the Victorian era, with a further more recent small addition thought to have been added in the 1960’s/1970’s. These spaces have been the subject of careful, considered improvement over recent years and now offer spacious, flexible accommodation arranged over four floors. A Porch, Cloakroom/WC, Study/Reception Hall, Inner Hall, Utility Room and a light, south facing 17’ Sitting Room with door on to the garden and open fireplace are on the ground floor. Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor with a 16’ Dining Room with vaulted ceiling and lovely 14’ Kitchen/Breakfast Room with fitted units, integrated appliances and Rayburn Stove. A landing, Master Bedroom with en suite Shower Room, family Bathroom and double Bedroom are on the first floor with a lovely 17’ double Bedroom at the top of the house with exposed roof timbers. These four floors are carefully tied together with a remodelled central staircase that runs up through the house. Character features are found in most rooms and prospective buyers will be pleased to find that the owners have retained original windows, cupboards and detail, with the vaulted stone ceiling in the dining room of particular interest.
The property benefits from good landscaped gardens and, unusually for property in this area, both a garage and parking. The property backs on to the High Street and so faces south with the gardens on this southerly side. There is a paved area by the sitting room with plenty of space for a table and chairs. The terraced gardens are beyond this with steps created from Cotswold stone from the renovation of the house connecting level lawn areas, planted borders with established shrubs, a level area with green house, raised vegetable beds and a shed with wood store, power and light found at the top of the garden with space for bins and composting behind. The parking area is behind this and is accessed from Tetbury Hill with space to park two cars. There is a single garage with power and light here and this is adjoined to the neighbouring garage. We understand that the property actually owns the whole parking area here but the neighbouring properties have the right to pass to access their garage and parking.
The village of Avening provides local facilities including, two pubs, a church, a well regarded primary school and pre-school playgroup. A more comprehensive range of amenities can be found in the nearby towns of Nailsworth and Tetbury, each approximately two miles away. Minchinhampton Common, consisting of some 600 Acres of open land largely vested in the National Trust, lies about two miles away providing a golf course in addition to excellent walking and riding opportunities. Junctions of the M4 and M5 motorways are within easy reach and railway stations at Stroud (6 miles) and Kemble (10 miles) provide main line services to Gloucester, Swindon and London Paddington.
