A great opportunity to buy and update an individual detached property in a super location just below Minchinhampton Common with lots of good living space, gardens, parking and a lovely view
An individual detached 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 an almost unrivalled outlook across the Woodchester valley. We understand that the property was originally built as the managers premises for The Bear, behind, with light filled, spacious accommodation arranged over one floor that is now in need of improvement and renovation.
One walks into an entrance area and hall, with a lovely 22’ sitting room with fireplace to the left. A 20’ reception room is behind this, which could serve as a bedroom if required, with a breakfast room, kitchen, study, useful larder/store, cloakroom/WC and rear porch to the right of this. These rooms works well together as they are, but prospective buyers may look to open these spaces up (subject to building regulations approval and permission), creating the de rigueur kitchen/family room that is now the heart of any home. The entrance hall opens into the inner hall, with three good bedrooms and a shower room found in the east wing of the property. Every window enjoys a good outlook, with the wonderful view at the front of particular merit.
The interior is complemented by plenty of parking, a garage and good gardens that make the most of the superb location and view at the front. There is a cattle grid at the front of the plot (pretty much essential in this location!) with the drive then leading past the property and well planted borders. The garage is on the right, with an up and over door and an attached carport, with the majority of the garden beyond. This private area is level, with lawns, well planted borders and beds and mature trees and shrubs, including a Eucalyptus tree. There is a smaller area
of garden at the front of the plot and this enjoys that first class view across the valley.
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.
This property is being sold on behalf of executors and it is marketed subject to obtaining the grant of probate. Whilst a sale can be agreed, an exchange cannot be offered until probate has been granted.
