A superb family home in a great position backing onto National Trust land within this sought after private road on Rodborough Common with nearly 2000 sq.ft of well presented living space
A substantial detached family house within Bownham Park, a sought after private road on lovely Rodborough Common. This well regarded address allows for easy access to good schools and the shops and amenities of both Stroud and Nailsworth, with hundreds of acres of National Trust land on the doorstep at Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons. The property is situated on the first phase of Bownham Park and as such benefits from a large plot and great outlook. The current owners have improved and maintained the property, making for a comfortable, spacious home, but many houses in the road have been the subject of comprehensive remodelling and extension, so this property could well be of interest to buyers looking for a ‘Grand Designs’ style opportunity to create something really special. The accommodation is arranged over two floors. An entrance hall opens on to a study area and this space is bound to prove popular with buyers looking to work from home, although it could also be used as a playroom. A cloakroom/WC, 18′ sitting room, 20′ kitchen/dining room and useful utility room are also on the ground floor. A staircase leads up
from the inner hall to the first floor landing, with a 17′ principal bedroom with Juliet balcony and en suite bathroom, family bathroom and four further bedrooms on this floor, with the smallest room currently used as a study. The windows enjoy a pleasant outlook, with the view at the front out over the garden and Bownham Park countryside beyond of particular merit.
The property benefits from gardens to the front and rear, parking for several cars and an integrated garage. The majority of the garden is to the front – a long lawned area, making for an excellent frontage, with this area enclosed with hedging and therefore very private. The drive is to the side of this, with a turning area at the bottom of the drive, and the owner has mentioned that this would be a great space for a double car port or garage, subject to planning consent. There is a paved sitting area by the house, with the rear garden
beyond. This comprises a level lawn, with a gate onto the common that the current owners have a licence to use.
The house is situated on a private road within the desirable private Bownham Park Estate on Rodborough Common which comprises hundreds of acres of land vested in The National Trust. The towns of Stroud and Nailsworth are within easy reach and the property lies in the catchment area of both Marling and the High School 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 some four miles distant.
Freehold, with an annual estate charge payable.
We are informed that all mains services are connected to the property.
