Details

Description

A substantial attached family house in a superb rural location at Brimscombe. This location, in the midst of the countryside, still allows for straight forward access to both Stroud and Nailsworth, with superb walks on the door step and hundreds of acres of National Trust land found just up the hill at Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons. The property is built using traditional methods from reconstituted stone and has clearly been the subject of comprehensive improvement in recent years, with well presented accommodation arranged over three floors. An entrance hall with Parquet flooring, 14’ sitting room with wood burning stove, 27’ kitchen/family room with contemporary units, utility room and cloakroom/WC are on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the hall to a large landing, with a master bedroom with en suite shower room, first class bathroom and two further bedrooms on this floor. There are then a further two double bedrooms at the top of the house, with a large landing that would be ideal for use as a hobby space or a teenagers den.The outlook at the front of the house is of particular merit, with every window here enjoying the view into the valley.

Outside

The property has gardens to the front, side and rear, with the majority of the ground to the front. This slopes away from the house, down to the stream, with the shared drive intersecting. The owners have created a parking space at the top of this area but the main drive is to the side of the house. This area also houses a large chicken run and a great workshop with power and light, with a further level area found behind the property.

Location

Swells Hill is a rural hamlet on the outskirts of Brimscombe and within easy access of the acres of land vested in the National Trust at Rodborough Common. The property is located in a very rural location accessed along a narrow country lane with a lovely southerly aspect across the valley. The town of Nailsworth is within approximately two miles and provides a large and comprehensive selection of speciality shops including Williams Food Hall, the famous Hobbs House Bakery, various clothing and gift shops, several cafes and a good selection of very well regarded restaurants. Junctions of the M4 and M5 motorways are within easy reach and railway stations at Stroud (4 miles) and Kemble (10 miles) provide main line services to Gloucester, Swindon and London Paddington.
