Superb position just below National Trust land for this individual extended detached house with spacious, light accommodation, parking, garage and gardens that enjoy an open outlook over the valley
An individual detached extended property situated in a superb elevated position at sought after Houndscroft. This location is surrounded by National Trust land with easy access onto hundreds of acres of open land at Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons and enjoys a first class outlook across the valley to Woodchester and surrounding countryside. We understand that the property was built in the 1960’s using traditional methods and has since been the subject of extension and improvement, with light, spacious accommodation arranged over two floors. An entrance hall, two large reception rooms, a 17′ kitchen/breakfast room with hand made units and Aga, conservatory and utility room with wc are found on the ground floor. Stairs lead up from the hall to a long landing with a 19′ master bedroom with en suite bathroom, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom on this floor. Every window enjoys a pleasant outlook, with the open view across the valley at the front of particular merit.
The interior is complemented by a gated drive with parking for several vehicles, an integral garage and landscaped gardens that also benefit from the lovely outlook. The drive is at the front of the property with the gardens mostly found to the side and rear of the house. There is a well planted border at the front, with a lower area that slopes down to the Cotswold stone boundary wall. The side and rear areas are laid to lawn and partly walled, with a couple of steps leading up to a paved sitting area that is well placed for the view. This garden then leads around to the rear of the house. There are pear and apple trees within the plot that measures 0.252 acres in total.
The property is situated in a lovely country lane location just below Minchinhampton Common, which comprises approximately 500 acres of land vested in The National Trust. The towns of Stroud and Nailsworth are within easy reach and the property lies within the catchment area of both Marling and High Schools with well regarded primary schools at both Amberley and Minchinhampton. Stroud offers comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities together with a main line railway station offering a direct service to London Paddington and Junction 13 of the M5 motorway are some four miles distant.
The property is fitted with Photo – Voltaic cells on the roof and this generates a tax free income for the owner of the property. A full breakdown of this income is available. The owners are very keen to move but do need to find a property to move into, and won’t rent, so any prospective buyer will need to wait for them to find a suitable property.
