A first class detached property situated at the end of a private road on the edge of sought after Minchinhampton that has been the subject of a comprehensive renovation scheme
Words like renovated and well presented are the staple of property descriptions, but every so often we are fortunate enough to list a house that transcends typical estate agent hyperbole and stands out from the market as something a bit special. Brocklesby, on the edge of Minchinhampton, is exactly that. It is situated at the end of a private road above the town, and this location allows for easy access to the shops, amenities and a well regarded school, with hundreds of acres of National Trust land found up the road at Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons.The property was originally built in 1959 using traditional methods and has recently been the subject of clever extension and comprehensive renovation that has transformed the property into a light filled, high specification home that is bound to appeal to all kinds of buyers. The spacious extended accommodation is arranged over one floor. The living space comprises a light entrance area, superb 21’ kitchen/family room with high quality fittings and Neff integrated appliances, 20’ sitting room, study and useful utility room. The easterly side of the property comprises a master bedroom with en suite shower room, family bathroom (both with Mira showers) and three further bedrooms. It is immediately clear that the property has been renovated to a very high standard – prospective buyers will benefit from a new roof, plumbing and heating system, windows and a complete re-wire – with this solid foundation complemented by some lovely touches, including underfloor heating in the kitchen, master suite and bathroom, Bi-fold doors in the both the sitting room and kitchen, with a wood burning stove found in the former.
The property benefits from a great corner plot that overlooks the playing field at the rear. There is both a pedestrian and five bar gate at the front, and this opens onto a large gravelled parking area, with a useful gated bin store that also houses the oil tank to the left. The gardens are found to the side and rear and these are level, with newly laid lawns, and enclosed with fences. There is a raised sitting spot at the back of the plot, and mature trees.
The property is located in a quiet private road just off the centre of Minchinhampton and is within easy walking distance of a selection of local facilities. These include a well regarded Primary School, a Library, Doctors Surgery and a variety of independent shops including a butcher, chemist, post office and general store. We’re pleased to be able to report that the Crown, the pub in the centre of Minchinhampton has been recently reopened by the Lucky Onion consortium, much to the delight of the local community. 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.
