Details

Description

A superb individual architect designed detached family house situated in a lovely rural position at popular Brownshill, some miles east of Stroud. This location allows for easy access to several well regarded schools and the amenities of nearby Chalford and Eastcombe, with woodland and countryside walks on the doorstep. The property is built using traditional methods under a pitched tiled roof and was obviously the subject of careful planning and meticulous attention to detail throughout the design and decoration process, with spacious, light-filled accommodation arranged over two floors. It is immediately obvious that one is walking into a very special living environment. You are greeted by a spacious entrance hall with cloaks cupboard, cloakroom/W.c and feature picture window on the back wall, giving a first glimpse of the lovely garden. A 24′ sitting room with wood burning stove is found on the left, with a flexible playroom/study off, with the  kitchen/family room to the other side of the hall. This clever 23’ room is well fitted with contemporary units and Corian work surfaces and has a ‘hidden’ working area at the far end of the room, keeping day to day kitchen tasks and items away from the social area. A utility room is also on this floor, with the first floor accessed from the hall. A staircase leads up to a large landing with high ceilings and a window mirroring that nice design touch found below in the hall. An excellent master bedroom with en suite bathroom, guest bedroom with en suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a well appointed bathroom with separate shower are on this level. There is good storage throughout, and every window enjoys a pleasant, ‘green’ outlook.

Outside

The property benefits from parking, a 16′ garage and lovely landscaped gardens. The top of the drive is shared with the neighbour and this area leads to a long gravelled driveway with established planted borders and plenty of space to park several vehicles and still turn. The 16′ garage is integral, with power, light and door to the rear. The gardens are found to the side and rear of the property and have been carefully landscaped. There is a good level lawn to the side of the property, with a gravelled sitting area by the kitchen and a pretty summer house with paved sitting spot on the other side of the garden that looks back at the house. The grounds are enclosed, with established trees and a variety of mature shrubs defining the boundaries. A further area of garden is found behind the property with raised beds, established borders and a potting shed. This area is actually one of the owners favourite spots, providing a lovely, south facing, private area to sit and relax.

Brownshill is a popular hill top village a few miles East of Stroud with countryside walks on the door step.
