Details

Description

A well presented detached property situated on a quiet country lane well away from passing traffic at popular Burleigh. This location allows for lovely views across the valley to countryside with 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 Cotswold stone and has been extended in the past, with spacious character accommodation arranged over two floors. A porch, kitchen, 18’ family room with wood burning stove and 18’ sitting room with glazed doors to the garden are on the ground floor. Stairs lead up from the family room to the first floor, with a landing, two double bedrooms and a bathroom on this level. There are two further bedrooms at the top of the house, on the second floor. Character features have been retained, and almost every window enjoys a good outlook.

Outside

The property benefits from gardens, parking and a garage. The garden is to the front of the property and, unusually for this location, is level, with gates leading into the plot and to the front door. The garden is mostly lawned and edged with well planted borders, with the original well to the side of the house. The garage and parking is to the other side of the property. There is a small area of land attached to this (that currently has a trailer on it) and this belongs to a neighbouring property

Location

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).

Agents Note

The property benefits from parking and a garage but the lane down to the property is narrower than usual, so we advise meeting in Burleigh Lane and walking to the property in the first instance.
