With views of Minchinhampton Common, this property, formally a substantial detached Victorian Villa, now two impressive semi-detached homes, enjoys the generous dimensions and stylish character of it’s era. From the moment you walk into the splendid centrally positioned entrance hall with it’s wooden floor, picture rails and high ceiling, you are aware of the distinctive appeal of this village residence. This area houses two staircases, one down to the basement level and the other to the first floor. At the front, the sitting room has three sash windows set in stone mullions and a limestone fireplace with a wood burner. The traditional fitted kitchen/breakfast room has a limestone floor with windows and a door out to the rear garden. An Aga is the central focal point at one end and the other has folding half glazed folding wooden doors opening into a superb light and contemporary garden room. Also with a limestone floor, this room is a very special space which has several doors opening to different area of the grounds. The sizable laundry room houses the boiler. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, two with ornate fireplaces and views across the rear garden to the church spire and the main bedroom with fitted wardrobes, picture rail, stone mullions with sash windows benefits from views of the common. At the end of the long landing sits the family bathroom. The lower basement level is an exciting opportunity to adapt this space to your personal requirements. With it’s own entrance it would make a secondary sitting room, a great home office or teenager’s bedroom four/den with its own shower room. The original cellar with the stone shelving is still in use. Much happiness has been enjoyed in this gorgeous home, and the next owners will be extremely lucky to live here.
The hedge lined drive, owned by this property, gives access to a small collection of homes and a private parking area. At the front, steps lead down to the basement level. A strip of ground is tucked behind the whole length of the hedge, opening up at the far end into a small orchard area. Currently it’s maintained but not really utilized. The enclosed formal rear terraced garden is delightful. There is a paved patio area sitting directly behind the kitchen/breakfast room. These landscaped gardens are laid to two level lawned areas with a dividing wall with steps. On the top level there are further steps up to a pedestrian gate leading onto the village lane. Beautiful shrubs and trees can be enjoyed throughout as well as a pond and garden shed. A stone/brick workshop/store is accessed externally
