A handsome Grade II* listed Cotswold stone property in popular Woodchester with lovely character features, over 2500 square foot of living space, a detached outbuilding/studio & landscaped gardens
A handsome Grade II* Listed house situated in an enclave of interesting, period properties at Rooksmoor, Woodchester. This pretty spot allows easy access to the community and amenities of Woodchester with hundreds of acres of National Trust land found up the lane at Rodborough and Minchinhampton Commons. The property was built circa 1759 on the site of an older property from Cotswold stone and has been considerably improved and renovated by the current owner to provide spacious accommodation arranged over four floors. A porch leads to and entrance hall and the two principal ground floor rooms. A beautiful William and Mary panelled drawing room is to the left with the 15’ kitchen/dining room leading to a conservatory/garden room and a cloakroom/wc. The first floor hosts a landing, family bathroom and two grand bedrooms with another two double bedrooms and a shower room on the second floor. One of these bedrooms has a spiral staircase that leads up to a useful attic space and these two connecting spaces are bound to appeal to teenagers. There is a detached stone outbuilding that has a shower, wc and a woodburning stove so could easily be used as an occasional bedroom, office or studio.
The interior is complemented by landscaped gardens and parking for several cars. The gardens are to the front of the property with a couple of steps leading down from the parking area past the outbuilding to a paved sitting area directly in front of the house with raised beds planted with established shrubs. There is a lawned area below this with mature trees surrounding the plot. The current owner has created a lovely sitting area to the side of this, by the pond with two good sheds below this.
The property is situated in the hamlet of Rooksmoor in the Woodchester valley equidistant between Nailsworth and Stroud and set in a conservation area and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The parish of Woodchester is convenient for both rural walks and access to the main A46 from where there is a regular bus route to both Stroud (2 miles) and Nailsworth (3 miles). The Fleece which is a well regarded Public House is within easy walking distance as is the popular junior school at Woodchester.

Junctions of the M4 and M5 motorways are within easy reach and railway stations at Stroud and Kemble provide main line services to London Paddington.
