A well presented cottage style property situated in a popular retirement development in the grounds of an imposing Cotswold house in the heart of sought after Minchinhampton. This location allows for easy access to the shops and amenities of the town with hundreds of acres of National Trust land found just up the road at Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons.

A window at the front looks over the well-kept communal grounds at the front, with the dining room open to this space. These two rooms feel light and spacious. A garden room is the rear of the property and this makes the most of the sunny aspect, with glazed double doors opening on to the private courtyard at the rear and lettings lots of light in to the living area. A well appointed kitchen with integrated appliances and shower room are also found on this floor. A staircase leads up from the hall to the first floor. A large landing, two double bedrooms and a bathroom are on this floor, with the master bedroom served by a door into the bathroom.

The interior is complemented by a private rear garden, a garage and use of the lovely communal grounds. The paved rear garden is sunny and enclosed, with an ornamental pond, covered sitting area and gate to the rear, with the garage found at the rear of the house.
