Details

Description

2 Court Gardens is part of the original Coach House for Rodborough Court, an imposing period house found across the road. Built in 1888 by Alfred Bucknall for successful local clothier Alfred Apperly the property is considered the last gentry house built in the parish. The Coach House was converted into residential accommodation in the 1950’s and now offers a characterful property in a private location within popular Rodborough. This location is very much part of the thriving local community, with two well regarded primary schools within easy reach and hundreds of acres of national trust land found just up the hill at Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold Stone under a distinctive tiled roof with well presented accommodation arranged over two floors. An entrance hall, 16’ sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and cloakroom/w.c are on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the hall to the first floor, with a landing, four bedrooms and a bathroom on this level. The third bedroom has access to a useful attic space.

Outside

The property benefits from parking, a large integral garage/workshop and an enclosed garden. The property is accessed via a gravelled driveway that is owned by the neighbouring Court Lodge, and 2 Court Gardens owns the gravelled area to the front of their own property, although do have to leave space for the neighbour to turn a car. The garage measures 17’ x 12’7” with lovely old wooden doors which could potentially be converted to provide further accommodation subject to relevant permissions, just as the neighbour has done. The garden is to the front of the house, with glazed doors out from the sitting room. The views at the front of the property are lovely, and the front windows also take in this outlook.

Location

Rodborough benefits from having a strong sense of community and a mixed demographic with two well-established primary schools, two churches, parks and play areas, various village pubs and of course the Common whilst Dudbridge has three supermarkets, a bowls club, playing field and a petrol station. Stroud town benefits from an award winning weekly farmers market as well as a variety of local independent shops and stores, pubs serving locally supplied beers and ciders and plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to eat and socialise as well as. The recently opened “Five Valleys” shopping centre is of particular note and is certainly worth a visit for a range of market stalls, food stalls and stores. 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 distance.
