A lovely Grade II Listed Cotswold stone character property situated in a good location above Brimscombe Port with three bedrooms, and garden and parking (Draft details)
A character home in part of a handsome Grade II listed Cotswold stone house in an elevated position a couple of miles east of Stroud. This location, above Brimscombe Port, allows for lovely views across the Golden Valley with hundreds of acres of National Trust land found at the top of Brimscombe Hill at Minchinhampton and Rodborough commons.
The property is built using traditional methods and offers spacious, character accommodation arranged over three floors. One walks into an entrance hall with useful walk in cupboard. The kitchen/dining room is beyond this, with a first class sitting room with superb bay window and fireplace also on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the entrance hall to a landing with space for a desk, two bedrooms and a well fitted bathroom, with another lovely bay window looking out across the valley from the largest bedroom. Stairs lead up again to the top floor and a large split level attic bedroom. The property is in need of a little finishing but offers a unique freehold opportunity to live within an imposing Cotswold stone at this price point.
The drive is behind the house and this leads to the front door to the property and the parking area. There is allocated parking here for the four properties within Cleeve House, with a communal wood store behind the building. A gate leads through the neighbouring gardens to the garden found at the front of the house. There is a gravelled sitting spot by the bay window that opens out on to a level lawn area with steps down through a well planted bed stocked with a variety of shrubs. Another sitting area is at the bottom of the plot with a large raised growing bed ready for planting to the side.
