A traditional cottage constructed in Cotswold stone and nestled just below Rodborough Common only 1.5 miles from Stroud town. Gwell Coed is a charming home that whilst providing well presented accommodation still retains great character. Features are in abundance throughout, however particular mention must be made of the beautifully restored pine floorboards in the sitting room and elm floorboards on the first and second floor. A useful entrance porch opens to an impressive reception room that is surprisingly spacious in size. The stone fireplace with woodburning stove inset, forms an attractive focal point to the room whilst a staircase rises to the first floor and a step leads up to the kitchen. The kitchen boasts a tall ceiling, a range of wall and base units as well as space for an oven and dishwasher, this opens to a utility area. A door from the utility provides access to the rear garden. On the first floor a pretty bedroom with stone fireplace, exposed elm floorboards and a double aspect outlook enjoys pretty views across the valley. This room also lends itself to use as a reception room if required. The family bathroom with a shower positioned over the bath is also located on this floor. A staircase from the landing rises to the second floor where an additional two bedrooms are found. The larger of the two affording further far-reaching views across the valley.
Steps up from the lane lead through the pretty front garden to the main entrance. The majority of garden, however extends to the rear. Steps up from the utility area and a pathway offer access to the garden. The area has been cleverly designed to provide an area of lawn, well stocked flower borders and a decked terrace for outside dining. It is from the decked terrace that the elevated view can be fully appreciated. A greenhouse is located in the far corner.
