The Property

1 Rock Terrace is set in a row of three handsome period houses and is a very special property. It has been stylishly renovated by the present owners to offer a contemporary yet characterful home. Positioned in an elevated spot in the pretty village of Ruscombe, this beautiful three storey house is full of charm with exposed Cotswold stone walls and wooden beams, pretty stained glass windows and an open fireplace. The outside space is a particular feature, boasting a good size lawned garden accessed via a shared pathway, glimpsing a view across the valley and a further paved courtyard. A stable door welcomes you into the hallway, offering plenty of space for coats and shoes and flagged with tumbled limestone flooring which runs throughout the utility, cloakroom and kitchen. From here a door leads to a useful utility room and cloakroom, with built-in cupboards, wooden worksurfaces, and space for a washing machine. Doors radiate to the kitchen/breakfast room and dining room. Enjoying a double aspect, the contemporary ‘In Frame’ shaker kitchen with breakfast bar boasts polished quartz work tops and belfast ceramic sink. There is an integral dishwasher and space for a range cooker. Space for a fridge/freezer is just across the hall. The dining room provides a cosy area for entertaining and opens into the sitting room, with beautiful herringbone engineered oak flooring throughout both. The sitting room exudes character with sandblasted Cotswold stone walls, and exposed wooden beams. The open fireplace provides a cosy focal point, with Hetas registered multi-fuel stove inset. Fitted cabinetry makes great use of the space under the stairs and a door leads out to the front of the property. On the first floor can be found a smart re-fitted bathroom and the master bedroom with en-suite shower room, which enjoys views over the gardens to the front. Stairs lead to the second floor and a further double bedroom with two built-in cupboards providing shelving and hanging space.


The property is approached via a footpath from the lane, bringing you to a gated shared path that runs across the three properties in Rock Terrace. To the left of this path, before reaching the house, is a paved terrace set in a pretty spot with mature shrubs and a natural spring that surfaces nearby. To the front of the house, access is enjoyed down four steps and a shared path to a detached, enclosed garden, comprising a level lawn and raised patio area – a lovely space in which to relax and take in the view towards Selsley Common and Penn Woods. A Cotswold stone outbuilding provides plenty of garden/workshop storage. AGENTS NOTE: A neighbouring cottage has someone living in their outbuilding which lies between 1 Rock Terrace and it’s garden.
