An extended detached Cotswold stone house at the top of a country lane just below National Trust common land with three double bedrooms, three reception rooms, a 26’ kitchen/family room and gardens
A beautifully presented detached extended home situated just below Minchinhampton Common at popular Burleigh. This location allows for a superb outlook across the valley to countryside with hundreds of acres of National Trust land found just up the hill. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold Stone and was originally a modest cottage that was then enlarged in 1901, with the addition of a handsome Edwardian façade. The current owners have lived in the property for 40 years and have extended and renovated the property, creating a wonderful home with well appointed accommodation arranged over two floors. An entrance hall with tessellated tiled floor, sitting room with inset wood burning stove, dining room, study, conservatory and first class kitchen/family room are on the ground floor. This 26’ room has been carefully planned, with plenty of space to cook, eat and entertain and is very much the hub of the house, with a useful utility room off. A staircase leads up from the hall to the first floor, with a principal 13’ bedroom with en suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom on this level. The property is tastefully presented, and every window enjoys a good outlook.
The property benefits from good gardens and a parking space. The latter is set down below the house, accessed from the lane below, with a footpath up to the house, although the owners often park just off the lane leading up to the house instead. A gated path leads to the front door with lawned areas and planted borders to either side. A gate leads around to the side of the house, with the majority of the garden found here. This area is terraced, and enjoys a superb view across the valley. There is a paved area by the conservatory and this leads around to a further
sitting area behind the house which can also be reached from the kitchen. There is a level lawned terrace below the house, with further sloping lawns that stretch away from the property. These areas are well kept and planted, with a variety of established shrubs and mature trees. A path leads up to the top of the plot, past a good summerhouse, shed and greenhouse, with a gate on to a footpath that leads up on to the common. Further garden is found behind the house, and this leads back around to the front of the property, with the oil tank tucked away in this area.
The property is situated in a quiet position just below Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons, a National Trust owned area that comprises hundreds of acres of open land. There is a golf course here, and the space can be used for recreational use, with a couple of good pubs and some lovely walks. The property is well positioned for both Nailsworth and Minchinhampton, with shops, amenities and both public and private schooling here. More comprehensive facilities are available in the larger town of Stroud, some three miles distant, with Junctions of the M4 and
M5 Motorways within easy reach. Railway stations at Stroud and Kemble provide main line services to Gloucester, Swindon and London Paddington (C. 90 minutes direct).
We are informed that mains electricity, water and drainage are connected to the property
