A charming stone cottage occupying a picturesque Cotswold village setting, with beautiful, wooded views across to Lypiatt. Tastefully upgraded and extended by the current owner, Lewisville Cottage enjoys immense character and warmth whilst also offering well-proportioned and presented accommodation. Nestled in the old part of the village, yet boasting ease of access to all its amenities, the cottage sits proudly within exquisite and professionally landscaped gardens. The property is accessed via a stable door opening into the impressive kitchen/dining room, or via French doors opening into the elegant garden room. This bespoke conservatory is a stunning addition, forming an additional living space and affording year-round enjoyment of the garden, this room and the dining room are warmed by underfloor heating. Connecting double doors open to the adjoining kitchen/dining room. Fitted with a range of wall and base units, as well as an integral oven, the room provides excellent space for day-to-day dining as well as entertaining. The area is further complimented by a cosy sitting room with a double aspect outlook, period fireplace with wood burner inset and exposed beams. Oak wooden floorboards further add to the room’s appeal. Stairs from small inner hallway rise to the first floor. A double bedroom sits to the front of the cottage and commands lovely views across the garden. A walk-through room, currently utilised as an occasional third bedroom provides built-in storage and access to a further pretty, double bedroom, similarly extending to the front of the cottage with dual aspect views over the garden and the village roof tops beyond. Both bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with a shower over the bath.
The gardens to this property are an absolute joy, having been professionally landscaped and lovingly tended by the current owner. Extending to the front and side of the cottage, whilst boasting a south westerly aspect, they also afford an elevated view across the village roof tops to Lypiatt. Arranged across two terraces, a level lawn with mature planting and patio area immediately adjoin the cottage, with a gateway providing access through the neighbour’s garden to the lower lane. Steps rise through the garden, where a striking water feature and further plants and trees offer interest and colour. An insulated timber summer house, with light, power and surrounding decked terrace offers invaluable space, currently set up as an outside sitting room but could also be a calming place to work from home. The area provides a perfect vantage point to take in the stunning outlook, not only across the garden but also of the valley beyond. A private gravelled parking area is located above the garden.

Eastcombe is a pretty hilltop village within an AONB, located between the towns of Stroud and Cirencester, and ideally positioned for good access to Cheltenham and other major regional centres of employment. Unlike many Cotswold villages it has retained the traditional village pub and general stores/post office and is a friendly community with a sought-after primary school and Thomas Keble, a highly regarded secondary school. Local independent schools include Beaudesert Prep School and Wycliffe College. There are outdoor activities such as walking, riding, and cycling. A Doctors Surgery, Chemist and Tesco Metro are located in nearby Bussage. The village enjoys a bus service to Stroud, while nearby Stroud and Kemble railway stations provide a direct line to London Paddington (90 minutes). Stroud is known for its weekly Farmers’ Market, has four supermarkets, Stroud High and Marling Grammar schools, a multi-plex cinema and a Leisure Centre, along with the newly restored Stroudwater Navigation canal.
