Hergest Ridge is a substantial detached house situated in an elevated spot a few miles east of Stroud centre at Brimscombe. This location, high on the sunny side of the Golden Valley, allows for a superb outlook to woodland and countryside, but is also very practical. There are several well regarded schools within easy reach, and canal side walks just across the road, with a great network of cafes, pubs and social spaces along the Stroudwater canal. The property is very much a classic Victorian double fronted villa style house. It has been extended over the years and now offers lots of great family space, with the accommodation arranged over two floors.

This comprises a porch, entrance hall, sitting room with fireplace and wood burning stove, dining room, 18' kitchen/breakfast room, another reception room and a cloakroom/W.c on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the hall to a large landing, with a principal bedroom with en suite shower room, family bathroom and three further bedrooms on this floor. The south facing aspect means that the house is light, and the windows at the front take in the super view over the Golden Valley.


The property is set within 0.38 of an acre. This includes gardens to the front and rear, garaging and parking. The front garden is terraced, with planted borders with an array of shrubs, plants and fruit trees. The current owners have created a productive organic vegetable garden in the lower front garden. There is a driveway which leads to off street parking for several cars, two single garages, a car port and a shed. Steps then lead up to the house, with a level area here - the perfect spot for a table and chair set to sit and take in the very special outlook over the valley. To the rear of the property is a useful covered area which gives access to the house and rear garden. This large area stretches up away from the house and is mainly laid to lawn. There is further potential with the outside space to develop with possible studios, outhouses or additional garages and parking (subject to the usual planning consents and permissions).


The property is next door to Charlea Gardens - 1.65 acres of community owned land, with a footpath at the rear of the house that takes you to the gate of this lovely wild garden area. Amenities at Brimscombe include a post office, general store and a good primary school, with other well regarded schools nearby at Chalford, Eastcombe, Bussage and Thrupp. Stroud town is approximately 2 miles distant with a wider 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.
