An individual, architect designed house in a lovely elevated position at popular Chalford Hill, allowing for easy access to amenities, with country side walks on the doorstep.
The Beehive is an individual, architect designed house in a lovely elevated position at popular Chalford Hill. This location is very much part of the thriving local community and allows for easy access to the local school and amenities, with country side walks on the doorstep. The property was originally designed by award winning architects Millar Howard and has since been further refined, with spacious, light filled family accommodation arranged over two floors.
A reception area, cloakroom/WC with plumbing for a shower, a utility room, playroom/study, sitting room and superb 24′ kitchen/family room with integrated appliances and a lovely slate floor are on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the entrance area to a landing, the master bedroom with en suite shower room, a family bathroom with contemporary bath and separate shower and three further bedrooms found on this level. The property has been finished to a high standard, with some very particular external detailing, under floor heating, high quality fittings and bi fold doors in both the kitchen/family room and sitting room.
The property benefits from parking and gardens that take in both the sun and the view. The parking is to the side of the house – a gravelled driveway with space to park several vehicles. A path leads from this area to the front door, with a planted area to the right of this and a useful area beyond that with bicycle shed. The majority of the garden is at the rear of the property and this area benefits from the south westerly aspect. This area has been carefully planned and finished, with a paved terrace that connects to the kitchen and sitting room via bi-fold doors, steps down to a lawn and a deck from which to enjoy the first class view over the Golden Valley. There is a further area of garden at the bottom of the plot and this would be an ideal spot to build a garden room or studio, subject to planning consent.
Local amenities at Chalford include several well regarded schools, public houses, community shop, Post Office and cafe with a store, doctors surgery and take away at nearby Bussage. Stroud town is approximately 5 miles distant with a wider range of shops and amenities, community and primary schooling, a leisure and sports centre, award winning weekly farmers market and a main line railway station with inter city services travelling to London (Paddington). Cirencester (10 miles), Cheltenham (15 miles) and Swindon (25 miles) are all within comfortable driving distance
We are informed by the vendor that all mains services are connected to the property.
