A substantial individual detached house in a first class position on a country lane in popular Avening with spacious accommodation, a detached garage with an office for home working and a large garden
A detached family house in a lovely elevated position on a quiet lane in Avening, a popular village between Nailsworth and Tetbury. This location, close to West End, allows for superb views back across the village, with country walks on the doorstep. Built in 1960 using traditional methods under a pitched roof, 24 Point Road is one of those rare properties that really does have it all – a large plot, lots of parking, a quiet, sunny location and plenty of good family living space. This is arranged over two floors. The ground floor comprises entrance hall, sitting room with fireplace, snug, side hall, utility room, cloakroom/W.C and kitchen/dining room with an Aga and a door out on to a terrace at the rear that takes in the view and looks out over the
garden. A staircase leads up from the hall to the first floor, with a landing, four good bedrooms and two bathrooms on this level. Every window enjoys a pleasant outlook, and the sunny aspect ensures that the property gets lots of natural light throughout the day. Prospective purchasers will also be pleased to learn that there is a good office/study attached to the garage. This is bound to prove popular with buyers now able to work from home, although the excellent view may prove a little distracting!
The property benefits from a great plot, with a gated drive with parking for several cars, a garage, that useful office/study and lovely gardens. The gravelled drive is at the front of the property, with the garage behind and the office/study attached to this. There is an established fern garden at the front of the house, with a secluded sitting area that looks back across the property to the pretty character houses on Point Road. Steps then lead down to the side of the house past a good wood store and into the garden. This large area is laid to lawn, with established trees and shrubs and a useful under house store. A glazed potting shed is at the bottom of the plot and steps lead back up to the rear of the property to the terrace, also accessed from the kitchen. This is a great spot of a table and chairs – the ideal place to sit and take in the lovely view.
The village of Avening provides local facilities including, two pubs, a church, a well regarded primary school and pre school playgroup. A more comprehensive range of amenities can be found in the nearby towns of Nailsworth and Tetbury, each approximately two miles away. Minchinhampton Common, consisting of some 600 acres of open land largely vested in the National Trust, lies about two miles away providing a golf course in addition to excellent walking and riding opportunities. Junctions of the M4 and M5 motorways are within easy reach and railway stations at Stroud (6 miles) and Kemble (10 miles) provide main line services to Gloucester, Swindon and London Paddington.
The owners are very serious about the prospect of moving and as such ask that only proceedable parties book to view.
