A well presented detached character cottage situated in a lovely elevated location at popular Chalford some miles East of Stroud. This semi rural area is known for an excellent community spirit and selection of good schools, with this particular property enjoying superb views across the valley to woodland and countryside. The cottage is built from Cotswold stone using traditional methods under a pitched tiled roof and has been extended in the past, increasing the living and bedroom space.
The village of Chalford is extremely popular, and has a very active community of all ages. It has a community village shop, two junior schools, an excellent comprehensive in nearby Eastcombe and there are two well known Grammar schools in Stroud. The towns of Cheltenham, Gloucester, Bath and Bristol are all within comfortable driving distance. The local town Stroud (4 miles) has three major supermarkets (Waitrose, Tesco, and Sainsbury’s), in addition to its hospital and mainline railway station (London 90 minute service). The town also has a good range of shops, as well as an award-winning farmers’ market, with some wonderful walks among the surrounding valleys and on the nearby National Trust owned commons.
The accommodation is arranged over three floors briefly comprising a large entrance hall, 16′ sitting room with open fire place, 12′ dining room with fire place and a 17′ kitchen/breakfast room with Aga found on the ground floor. On the two floors above are two large landings, (one with a study area), four bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room.
The terraced gardens are to the front of the cottage and take full advantage of the lovely southerly views. There is a gravelled path to the front of the property leading to a patio, arbour and lovely seating area looking South and West. Steps and paths then take you down to a sloping lawn and through planted borders with a wealth of mature, well established shrubs and bushes. There is also a timber garden shed, log store and stone built lean to/storage area.
