A substantial character property situated in a superb elevated position on Rodborough Common. This location, in the midst of hundreds of acres of National Trust Common land, is considered one of the very best addresses in the area, and allows for easy access to amenities at Stroud, Minchinhampton and Nailsworth with country walks literally on the doorstep. The property was originally built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone under a pitched tiled roof and has been extended in the past. It is now in need of improvement and some renovation but offers prospective buyers a unique opportunity to create a wonderful family home, with spacious accommodation arranged over two floors. A porch, 14’ dining hall, 19’ sitting room, 19’ garden room, 17’ kitchen, useful utility room, rear hall and cloakroom/WC are on the ground floor.

A real opportunity – call today to book an appointment.
The interior is complemented by a drive with space to park several cars, a large double garage and lovely gardens. These walled grounds stretch out to the side of the house and are completely level, a relative rarity for property in this area. They are laid to lawns and once comprised a tennis court, with mature trees within the plot. There is a paved area directly behind the house, with a summerhouse and useful tool shed, attached to the house. Established borders are found around the site and these are well planted with a variety of plants. A path leads from the
house back to the open double garage and parking area, with a small area of garden at the front of the property and a gated pedestrian access on to the road at the front. The owners have been advised that it may be possible to obtain planning permission to build within the garden and they are in the process of arranging an overage condition so that they benefit from any future development – more details to follow.
The house is situated in a first class position on Rodborough Common. This famous area comprises hundreds of acres of land that has been for many years vested in The National Trust and offers wonderful walks, Winstones ice cream factory and the well regarded Bear at Rodborough and The Lodge, two great establishments in which to eat, drink and socialise. The towns of Stroud and Nailsworth are within easy reach and the property lies in the catchment area of both Marling and High School with well regarded primary schools at both Amberley and Minchinhampton.
