A superb, totally renovated Grade II Listed Cotswold stone house in a sought after road with over 1800 sq ft of carefully considered character accommodation, gardens, parking and garage
Peter Joy Estate Agents are delighted to offer this rather special property to the market. Yew Tree House is a handsome Grade II listed Cotswold stone dwelling in a prominent position in a quiet street opposite the church in Leonard Stanley, a popular village a couple of miles west of Stroud. Historic England note that the property originally dates back to the 17th century and make special mention of several important architectural features, including internal timber framed partitions. The property has recently been the subject of a painstaking renovation programme and now offers prospective buyers a unique opportunity to purchase a character home with modern fittings and conveniences that also retains some wonderful original details. The property is arranged over two floors and has essentially been rebuilt around the original walls and timbers. Over 1800 sq ft of living space now sits under a new Cotswold stone roof, and the property has been re-wired and re-plumbed. One walks into an entrance hall with a sitting room beyond this. This 25’ space has an inglenook fireplace, underfloor heating (found throughout the ground floor) and glazed double doors that lead out onto a pretty side garden. A shower room, cloakroom, excellent kitchen/breakfast room with high ceilings and high quality fittings, and practical utility room are also on this level, with an extension offering another reception room at the rear of the property. A great deal of thought has gone into this space, with a good line of sight from the kitchen through to this area and into the garden, so it could well suit as a playroom, dining room or, with the bi-fold doors that open onto the garden, a first class garden room. The staircase is in the hall, in the centre of the house, and this leads up to a good landing with some lovely exposed timbers. A bathroom and four bedrooms are on this level, with a pleasant outlook over the church at the front and to countryside in the distance at the rear from this floor.
The property benefits from a good level garden, parking and a 22’ garage. A gated gravelled path leads to the front door, with beds, ready for planting. There is a pretty area of garden to the side of the property, accessed from the sitting room, with the majority of the garden at the rear. Bi-fold doors open out from the rear of the house to this area, with a gravelled sitting spot and a level lawned garden that stretches away from the property. This is enclosed with fences, with the garage behind, on the street. This 22’ space has double doors and a parking area to the front.
The property is located in the centre of the village and close to Leonard Stanley church and local amenities including a primary school, tennis court, cricket club and social club. Amenities at nearby Kings Stanley include a post office, butchers, hairdressers and supermarket. The nearby town of Stonehouse offers a wider range of amenities to include post office, local schools, supermarkets and butchers. The main line railway station provides a direct route to London (Paddington) and Junction 13 of the M5 Motorway is approximately three miles away. Stroud is also within easy reach and offers a more comprehensive selection of shopping, educational and leisure facilities.
