A well presented semi detached Cotswold stone cottage located approximately four miles from Stroud in a slightly elevated position in the popular hamlet of Longridge. This first class position is on the outskirts of popular Sheepscombe village, with wonderful country walks on the doorstep and a great view across the Painswick Valley from the garden. The property is built from Cotswold stone and has been extended in the past, with the character accommodation arranged over two floors. A porch, 16′ sitting room with stone fireplace, wood burning stove and some great built in storage lead through to the 21′ kitchen/dining room with Klover stove and a utility area are on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the kitchen to the first floor, with three good bedrooms (the main bedroom with lovely exposed ceiling timbers) and all with delightful views across the valley, and a bathroom on this level. There is more clever storage in the main bedroom, and built in cupboards in bedrooms two and three.
The property benefits from a pretty front garden. This is level and has been landscaped, with a lawn, wood store and gated path to the front door. Steps lead up to a raised patio area (the ideal spot to eat and relax with that view) to the side. There is a useful shed and outside lighting, with the garden enclosed by Cotswold stone walling.
Sheepscombe is a sought after village to the East of the renowned town of Painswick. It is actually a collection of Hamlets – Sheepscombe village, Jack’s Green, Cockshoot and Longridge. The village has a fascinating history, and has a great pub, the Butcher’s Arms, a well regarded primary school and busy cricket team, with the Village Hall a real hub. There are a wider range of facilities in Stroud, with a variety of local independent shops and stores, art galleries, pubs serving locally supplied beers and ciders and plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to eat and socialise. The wider area has a wide range of shops and amenities, including supermarkets, a hospital, state and private schools, 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.
Mains electricity, water and drainage are connected to the property. The heating system is fired by a Klover pellet stove.
