Details

Description

Meadow View is a substantial semi-detached character property situated in a superb location a few miles west of Wotton-Under-Edge. This former farmworkers cottage enjoys a lovely rural setting, above a secluded river valley with woodland to the side and far-reaching views over open countryside towards Nibley Monument. The property is built using traditional methods from red brick and has been extended in the past. It has been the subject of further extension and comprehensive improvement during this tenure, with spacious, beautifully presented accommodation arranged over two floors.

An extended oak porch, entrance hall, inner hall, cloakroom/WC, dining room, 21’ sitting room with fireplace and dual fuel stove, breakfast room, 17’ kitchen and oak conservatory are on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the hall to the first floor, with a landing, principal bedroom with en suite shower room, family bathroom and three further double bedrooms on this level. The property is full of clever design touches, and every window enjoys a pleasant, green outlook, with the view from the front windows and the top of the garden of particular merit.

Outside

The interior is complemented by a block paved drive with electrically operated gates, car port, large store, workshop, lovely landscaped gardens and a summer house. There is both a five bar and pedestrian gate, and these open on to the drive. There is space here to park several vehicles, with the carport at the back of this area. This has power and light, and a large secure store with alarm to the left. There is a workshop and wood store behind this, with a bench to sit and take in the house and lower garden. The block paving continues, forming a path to the front door and the side of the house, with a lovely level lawn at the front of the property. There are fruit trees here, with the area enclosed with hedging. There is a patio behind the house with a wood store beyond the conservatory. Beside the conservatory steps lead up to the top garden. This is terraced, and lawned, with a large level area at the top of the plot – and ideal place for children to play. The view here is quite something, and a stylish timber build open summer house has been strategically sited to make the most of this outlook. A productive area with ‘Rhino’ greenhouse and another wood store and shed are also set behind the house. A wonderful garden for a first class house.
