A well presented Cotswold stone cottage with character features and a 15′ kitchen/dining room and sitting room with mezzanine located above and is situated in a lovely elevated rural position in popular Ruscombe. This position allows for a superb outlook over the surrounding fields and countryside with woodland walks on the doorstep and two good schools within easy reach. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone under a pitched tiled roof and has clearly been the subject of improvement in recent years.
Ruscombe is a village to the west of Stroud. Local amenities includes well regarded primary schools and a public house at neighbouring Whiteshill with a wider range of facilities available in nearby Stroud some 2 miles away. Stroud town offers a wide range of shops and amenities, community and primary schooling, a leisure and sports centre, award winning weekly farmers market and a main line railway station with inter city services travelling to London (Paddington). Cirencester (10 miles), Cheltenham (18 miles) and Swindon (25 miles) are all within comfortable driving distance.
An open porch leads to a lovely 15′ kitchen/dining room, with a sitting room also found on the ground floor. Both these rooms benefit from a double sided wood burning stove in the fireplace between the two rooms. A mezzanine is located above the sitting room and is currently used as a spare bedroom, it is accessed via a pull down ladder. Stairs lead up from the kitchen to a landing, double bedroom and well fitted modern bathroom, with a further double bedroom located on the second floor.
The tastefully decorated interior is complemented by a good front garden. This is laid to lawn, with a variety of established shrubs and an enclosed vegetable plot with a shed and a store to the side. A gate is located at the bottom of the garden where you can access the adjacent woodlands.
The three properties in this area are served by a footpath providing access from the road. Juniper Cottage located adjacent to the woodlands benefits from this and has the right to walk past your house, in turn there is access for you directly into the woodlands. There is further access for The Orchard cottage located at the bottom of the garden.
