A substantial extended detached family house in a sought after private road on Rodborough Common with a double garage, large level south facing garden and a first class extension
The Heathers is a substantial detached family house within Bownham Park, an excellent private road address on sought after Rodborough Common. This location 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 in a sheltered spot at the far end of Bownham Park and is very private, with accommodation that has been improved and comprehensively extended by the current owners. This addition was designed with annexed accommodation in mind but is currently used as part of the main house, making for a spacious, flexible home.
A generous entrance hall greets you, with the ground floor rooms accessed from this area. A 21’ sitting room is to the right, and this large room runs from the front to the back of the property and opens onto the garden at the rear. It opens into the snug, with the kitchen beyond this, making for a good, open flow through this area. The kitchen can also be accessed from the hall, with the dining room found to the front of the property. The staircase leads up from the entrance hall to the first floor landing, with a 16’ principal bedroom with en suite shower room, family bathroom and three further bedrooms on this floor. The extension, whilst it has its own side access there is also a doorway from the kitchen into the ground floor. There is a large open plan living space with utility area here, and a door back into the side hall, with the staircase to the first floor. Two bedrooms, a bathroom and a 16’ sitting room are on this level.
The extension has been cleverly designed so that a kitchen or bathroom could be fitted. This means that it would be possible to live on just one floor here, and the ground floor area used as a 19’ kitchen/family room for the main house.
The Heathers is set within a generous level plot with plenty of parking, a double garage and private gardens. The parking is to the front of the house, with the double garage integral to the property, with two doors to the front, an internal door with access adjacent to the kitchen and power and light. A gated side access to the left of the property leads to the door to the annexe, so this can be accessed separately. The gardens are to the front, side and rear of The Heathers, with level lawns, mature, grand trees, pond with electric supply and a gated side access to the right of the house with a useful shed also sited here. The majority of the garden is at the rear and is south facing, with a large paved area directly behind the house with a covered area and water feature, with large level lawns that stretch away from the property beyond this. The garden is well planted, with established, well stocked borders, mature trees, an arbour with a bench that looks back at the property.
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.
