A delightful, detached period property built in the late 19th Century with quite spectacular views across the valley and surrounded by National Trust common land


A mid 19th century cottage standing in a unique location surrounded by National Trust land. This delightful property has been the subject of a comprehensive refurbishment and redecoration scheme by the present owner and now provides a comfortable retreat in this idyllic location. The accommodation, which has all rooms benefitting from the spectacular views, briefly provides the following:- Entrance Hall, fitted Kitchen/Dining Room with fireplace and log burning stove, secondary Kitchen/Utility Room with additional sink and plumbing for washing machine, Sitting Room with glazed doors leading to garden and open fireplace, large Bathroom and two double Bedrooms. The cottage has had the roof overhauled, all the sash windows have been re-hung and the property has been re-wired and a new central heating system installed together with replacement of the kitchen and bathroom fittings.

The property is approached via a footpath over National Trust land, through a split timber five bar gate with shallow steps leading down to the front of the cottage where there is a gravelled seating area from which to enjoy the garden and views. The level garden has been laid to lawn and planted with fruit trees and is bounded by a low stone wall which adjoins common land that has been recently cleared of some mature trees to further enhance the spectacular views.

Laurel Villa 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. Minchinhamton 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.
