A truly outstanding location – a spacious individual detached property situated on a country lane in popular Burleigh surrounded by National Trust land with flexible family accommodation
An individual detached property situated in a superb position on a country lane at sought after Burleigh. This elevated location allows for wonderful views across the valley to countryside and easy access to the shops and amenities of both Minchinhampton and Nailsworth, with hundreds of acres of National Trust common land found just up the hill. The property is built using traditional methods under a pitched roof and has clearly been the subject of improvement in recent years, with spacious, welcoming accommodation arranged over two floors. An entrance
hall, cloakroom/w.c, 17′ sitting room, dining room, 16′ kitchen/breakfast room, 14′ conservatory, two double bedrooms and a bathroom with separate shower cubicle are on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the hall to the first floor, with a landing, bathroom and two further double bedrooms on this level. The location and plot really are first class; the property could appeal to several types of buyers and may well be bought by a purchaser with a higher budget looking to create a high value, one off Cotswold home.
The property benefits from a long drive with electrically operated gate, a double garage and lovely gardens and grounds that extend to some 0.4 of an acre. The drive is wider at the bottom of the plot, with space to park several cars, and then leads up to the garage with more space to park and turn here. The double garage is detached, and measures 18’0” x 16’4”, with power, light electrically operated door and a good storage space over. The gardens are to three sides of the property, with a large lawn at the front of the house. This slopes gently down to the front of the plot, with established shrubs and planted borders and stone steps back down to the lower drive. There is a private paved sitting area to the side of the house, by the conservatory, with the garden then extending to the rear boundary with feature stone steps leading up to a planted rear bank with a variety of established shrubs. The outlook from every area is outstanding – you really are surrounded by countryside and greenery.
The property is situated on a quiet country lane 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).
