A pretty chocolate box style terraced cottage with two bedrooms situated off of Hyde Lane towards the back of Whitminster. Unusually for a property of this style and size, there is a circa 12’ wide detached garage with parking in front. Whitminster offers brilliant access to the motorway connecting to Gloucester, Bristol, Cheltenham and beyond and benefits from a village community with a garden centre, take away options and primary schooling. The ground floor comprises a 16’ living/dining room with wooden beams, a woodburning stove in a red-brick fire place and a painted stone wall with a 14’ kitchen with sliding door to the rear garden. On the first floor is a bright landing with Velux window above, an 11’ second bedroom with pretty arched window, bathroom with Velux window and shower over bath and 10’ main bedroom with built in cupboard as well as a handy enclave currently utilised as the wardrobe storage area. Windows to the rear of the property enjoy an open aspect over neighbouring wild meadow. The property benefits from electric heating and double glazing with character features throughout the property with the painted brick façade and the aforementioned wooden beams, fire place and painted stone. During the current vendor’s twenty two year tenure, they have extended the house over the kitchen, replaced most elements and installed the woodburner.
The interior is complemented by having a quiet and private courtyard garden off of the kitchen that is mainly laid with stone chippings and has well-stocked mature borders which welcomes neighbouring wildlife including frequent visitors – the hedgehogs. The garden to the front benefits from a patio seating area, further well-established and well-stocked planted borders, a lawn and large garage (potential to convert subject to relevant permissions) with electric up-and-over door and rear access with tandem parking in front.
Whitminster benefits from primary schooling, a pub; ‘The Old Forge’, a village shop, playing fields, multiple takeaways, a church, large garden centre and ‘The Whitminster Inn’. Gloucester and Stroud offer a wide range of shops and amenities, including supermarkets, local speciality stores, hospitals, state and private schools, leisure and sports centres and main line railway stations with inter city services travelling to London (Paddington) and others. Stroud town benefits from an award winning weekly farmers market as well as a variety of local independent shops and stores, pubs serving locally supplied beers and ciders and plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to eat and socialise as well as. The recently opened “Five Valleys” shopping centre is of particular note and is certainly worth a visit for a range of market stalls, food stalls and stores. Cirencester (10 miles), Cheltenham (15 miles) and Swindon (25 miles) are all within comfortable driving distance.
