A handsome extended double fronted Cotswold stone character property situated at popular Burleigh that has been beautifully refurbished and now offers spacious accommodation with lovely living spaces
A beautifully presented extended detached property in an elevated position at popular Burleigh. This location allows for superb views and easy access to the shops and amenities of both Stroud and Nailsworth, with hundreds of acres of National Trust land just up the hill at Minchinhampton and Rodborough commons. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone and has clearly been the subject of clever, comprehensive remodelling, with character accommodation arranged over three floors. An entrance hall, bedroom and bathroom are on the lower ground floor, with a dining room, study/bedroom 4, cloakroom/WC, utility room and lovely kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke units on the floor above. Two further bedrooms, a shower room and a superb 17’ sitting room with bi-fold doors that open on to the garden are found at the top of the house. Some wonderful touches are found throughout the property, including hand made doors and clever lighting, and pretty much every window takes in that lovely view. The property also benefits from a solar hot water system. This absorbs heat from the sun, but rather than converting the heat into electricity to power the home, solar thermal collectors use the heat to produce hot water.
The property benefits from gardens, parking and a detached timber studio/outbuilding. The gardens are to either side of the property, with the parking at the rear. There is space here to park several vehicles, with steps down to the house. There is a lovely paved area to the side of the house, by the side door, with steps that lead down to a lower garden area with fruit trees, and access around to the front of the house and the studio. This was previously a sauna space and has power and light, so is bound to prove popular with prospective buyers looking to work or
create at home. A path leads to the front door, and past the house down to the road and to steps that lead back up to the other side of the property and the garden there, with a useful bin/recycling store to the right. The garden at the top of the steps is on two levels, with a lovely sitting area, with access from the kitchen, leading on to a lawned area. Steps lead up again to a second level, with access from the second floor sitting room, with an ornamental pond here. Both these areas are well planted with a variety of established shrubs and have clearly been a labour of love, with superb views across the valley.
The property is within the parish of Burleigh. This popular area has Minchinhampton Common at the top of the hill and this offers hundreds of acres of land vested in the National Trust which can be used for recreational use, a golf course and two great pubs. The closest amenities are at the bottom of the hill at Brimscombe Corner which include a post office and general store, with two good primary schools close at hand. More extensive facilities are available in Nailsworth and Stroud which are both within three miles. Junctions of the M4 and M5 motorways are within
easy reach and railway stations at Stroud (2 miles) and Kemble (10 miles) provide main line services to Gloucester, Swindon and London Paddington.
