A beautifully presented extended attached Cotswold stone property situated in a rural position adjoining National Trust Land with spacious character accommodation, lovely gardens and an open outlook
Superb position adjoining National Trust land for this extended attached Cotswold stone character cottage. This location allows for superb views across the valley to fields, with hundreds of acres of land found just up the hill at Minchinhampton and Rodborough commons. The property was originally built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone under a pitched tiled roof and has clearly been the subject of clever extension and comprehensive improvement in recent years, with spacious accommodation arranged over three floors.
A good entrance hall, cloakroom/wc, 14’ sitting room, recently refitted kitchen with integrated appliances and granite work surfaces, dining room, study/playroom and superb 18’ garden room with picture window looking out onto the old quarry face and a fern garden at the rear are on the ground floor. There is a galleried landing over this room, with a spacious 19’ master bedroom with en suite shower room, family bathroom and two further bedrooms on the floor, with another good bedroom at the top of the house. Character features and clever touches are found throughout the house and most windows enjoy a ‘green’ outlook.
The gardens are mostly at the front of the property and are a real joy. One walks past the neighbouring property to access the house with a couple of steps up to a recessed porch and the front door. There is a paved sitting spot here that takes in the lovely outlook over the valley. There is a level lawn below this with beautifully planted borders stocked with a variety of colourful shrubs. A path leads down to the lower garden. This has a gravelled terrace with space for a table and chairs, a larger level lawn and steps back up through well planted borders, edged with dry stone walls. There is another paved area above with a shed and composting area, with a couple of steps leading up to another seating area by the sitting room, with double doors into the house that takes in the first class view.
The property lies within the parish of Burleigh with amenities at nearby Brimscombe Corner which include a Post Office and general store and two good primary schools close at hand. Minchinhampton Common lies at the top of the hill and offers hundreds of acres of land vested in the National Trust which can be used for recreational use. More comprehensive facilities are available in Nailsworth and Stroud which are both within three miles. Stroud Railway station provides regular services to London Paddington and junctions of the M4 and M5 Motorways are also within easy reach.
