A very pretty and well presented detached Cotswold stone cottage situated in a secluded position at Burleigh. This location allows for easy access to both Stroud and Nailsworth with some 600 acreas of National Trust land found just up the hill at Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons. Dating from c.1820, the property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone under a pitched tiled roof with later additions. The characterful accommodation is arranged over three floors to include entrance porch, snug/dining room with multi-fuel stove, 17’ sitting room with dual aspect windows and wood burning stove, WC/utility room, recently renovated kitchen/breakfast room with quartz worktops, flagstone floor, bi-folding doors to private terracing ideal for entertaining and barbeques, and composite stable door to front can be found on the ground floor with a landing, master bedroom with en-suite shower room, bedroom two and family bathroom on the first floor and large bedroom above. Every window enjoys a rural aspect, with the interior complemented by landscaped gardens and generous parking.
The gardens are a particular feature with sloping lawns, a level paved terrace to the front and side of the cottage from which to enjoy privacy and spectacular south east views. There is a pedestrian gate at the rear giving direct access onto a footpath which adjoins the common. There are utility areas for storage, gardens sheds and a log store. There is ample level driveway parking for several vehicles to the front with steps leading up through the garden to the cottage.
The property lies within the parish of Burleigh with amenities at nearby Brimscombe Corner which include a general store, pub and two primary schools close at hand. Bus stops a two minute walk for secondary schooling. Neighbouring Minchinhampton Common offers hundreds of acres of land vested in the National Trust which has some excellent pubs and a golf course.
