A handsome detached Edwardian house in an elevated position at popular Rooksmoor with 2650 sq. ft of living space, a double garage and long driveway, and gardens and grounds of just over an acre



A handsome detached Edwardian house situated in an elevated private position at popular Rooksmoor, Woodchester. This location allows for easy access to the shops and amenities of both Stroud and Nailsworth with hundreds of acres of National Trust land found just up the hill at Rodborough and Minchinhampton commons. Constructed in 1901, the property is built using traditional methods under a pitched slate roof with spacious accommodation arranged over two floors.

An entrance hall, cloakroom/WC, 23′ drawing room with cut stone mantelpiece, dining room, breakfast room/study, 14′ kitchen with granite work surfaces and integrated appliances, utility room and conservatory are on the ground floor. A solid Oak staircase leads up from the hall to the first floor, with a master bedroom with en suite shower room, family bathroom and four further bedrooms found on this level.

The interior is complemented by gardens and grounds of just over an acre. These comprise a formal level lawn to the side of the house with terraced gardens behind this with mature trees and planting. There are further grounds below the drive, running down to the road below, and a paved covered courtyard area between the house and the garage. There is parking for several cars with room to still turn and a double garage, with up and over door, to the left of the property.


The property is situated in the hamlet of Rooksmoor in the Woodchester valley equidistant between Nailsworth and Stroud and set in a conservation area and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The parish of Woodchester is convenient for both rural walks and access to the main A46 from where there is a regular bus route to both Stroud (two miles) and Nailsworth (three miles). The Fleece, which is a well regarded Public House, is within easy walking distance as is the popular junior school at Woodchester. Stroud has a comprehensive selection of shopping, educational and leisure facilities. Junctions of the M4 and M5 motorways are within easy reach and railway stations at Stroud and Kemble provide main line services to London Paddington.
