The Property

Enjoying an elevated setting in the pretty area of Burleigh, nestled immediately below Minchinhampton common and acres of unspoilt countryside. This detached period home has been extended in more recent history to now provide comprehensive accommodation, coupled with wonderful gardens ideal for family living. The main entrance hall opens to the living space that comprises sitting room with an open fireplace and French doors opening to the garden, a versatile family room also with French doors leading to the garden and an open plan family kitchen with room for dining. Fitted with beautiful bespoke cabinetry the workspace overlooks the garden and includes an integral double oven, dishwasher, and 6 ring gas burner. A cotswold stone fireplace with range inset is located to the dining end. From the dining area stairs down lead to a converted cellar currently used as a home office and perfect for anyone wishing to work from home. Also located on this floor is a large and incredibly useful utility/cloakroom, ideal for family life and wet dogs. From the first floor landing access can be gained to all four bedrooms, three of which enjoy a pretty outlook across the mature garden. These are served by a generous family bathroom with separate shower cubicle.



Mature gardens extend to one side of the property and enjoy great privacy. Landscaped to include areas of lawn suitable for children to play, a large apple tree offers dappled shade to one side, whilst flower borders inject interest and colour and vegetable beds provide further opportunity for the keen gardener. A paved seating terrace reside immediately adjacent to the house ideal for outside dining.  A detached studio with light and power provides year round enjoyment of the garden and further accommodation. A raised gravelled terrace affords a wonderful view across the garden and across the hedgeline to the valley beyond. Subject to some pruning the view could be further opened up. A Cotswold stone outbuilding creates outside storage, whilst a gated driveway leads to a detached garage (in need of some attention).  Both of which provide parking for two cars.  The garage has benefited from planning permission to create a more substantial construction, however, this has since lapsed.
