Dr Crawfords Close
A superb extended family house in a sought after close on the edge of Minchinhampton with a first class 30’ kitchen/family room, six double bedrooms, a double garage with office over and gardens
A beautifully presented detached family house in a well regarded close in popular Minchinhampton. This location allows for easy access to local amenities, with Minchinhampton Primary and Beaudesert Park schools within easy reach, and hundreds of acres of National Trust land at Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons just along the road. The property has clearly been the subject of comprehensive remodelling and improvement in the recent past, with spacious, well appointed accommodation arranged over three floors.
A large entrance hall greets you, and the owners have improved this space by removing the cloakroom/WC and partitions, increasing the feeling of space as you walk in. A 21’ sitting room with cut stone fireplace is on the left, with glazed doors to the garden, with two further reception rooms to the front and rear of the property. The hall leads on to the kitchen, and this superb 30’ room has been extended and is now a brilliant family space, with underfloor heating and glazed doors that open out on to the garden and space for the whole family to cook, eat and relax. A
large utility room with built in storage and useful shower room with underfloor heating are also found on the ground floor. A large landing, principal bedroom with en suite bathroom, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom are on the first floor, with two further double bedrooms and a WC at the top of the house, on the second floor.
The interior is complemented by parking for several cars, a 20’ double garage and large level gardens. The parking is to the front, with the garage to the side. This has two up and over doors, power and light. There is a superb office over this, perfect for buyers now working from home, with gardens to the front and rear. There is a level lawn to the front of the house, with a path to the front door and gated access to either side. The majority of the garden is at the rear and this space is level and private, with a good lawn, established shrubs and planting, paved sitting spot by the sitting room and deck behind the kitchen – a perfect place to entertain. The garden is enclosed with Cotswold stone walling, and there is a useful access out onto Windmill Road that is shared with two neighbouring properties.
The close is located just off Windmill Road, a great residential area on the edge of Minchinhampton. Minchinhampton is a historic market town with a picturesque High Street. There is a good selection of local amenities within level walking distance that include a well regarded primary school, library, doctors surgery, a number of children’s sports clubs and a variety of independent shops including a butcher, chemist, post office and general store. There are also regular bus services from Minchinhampton to all secondary schools in the area. Minchinhampton Common is nearby and provides in excess of 700 acres largely vested in the National Trust, with the towns of Nailsworth and Stroud offering comprehensive facilities including a main line railway station with services to Gloucester, Swindon and London Paddington.
