An outstanding peaceful setting with breathtaking views are both dominant features of this detached family home. Set back off from the single track country lane, this residence was originally constructed in the 1940’s, and has been extended from its former format and it still offers further scope for expansion, subject to the relevant permissions. On entry through the original front door, a traditional reception hall with parquet flooring, cloakroom and staircase, welcomes you. The breakfast room with views across the rear garden benefits from a stone fireplace with open fire and parquet flooring in addition to double doors leading into the dining room. The fitted kitchen is conveniently located off the breakfast room and enjoys built-in appliances comprising: dishwasher, oven, microwave, hob and extractor fan. The utility houses the boiler and rear door. The dining room and drawing room both enjoy a dual aspect and stone fireplaces with an open fire. Upstairs, the main bedroom has builtin wardrobe, storeroom and ensuite shower room. There are four further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The majority of the house benefits from stone-mullion windows with double glazed units and is warmed by oil fired central heating.
The mature landscaped grounds are mainly enclosed by hedging. A five bar gate opens up onto the drive leading to the single and double garages offering copious amounts of parking. There are lawned areas with flower beds, a variety of trees and shrubs, vegetables beds and a path leading to the front door with a gravelled seating area. The open views are utterly superb. To the rear there is a further lawn with shaped mature flower and shrub beds, a selection of trees, a patio, a couple of natural areas encouraging wildlife, a greenhouse and the oil tank.

It enjoys a plethora of facilities including The Crown Inn & The Lodge public houses, cafes, a general store, butcher, chemist and Post Office, as well as a C of E Primary Academy and both a doctor and dental surgeries. Minchinhampton and neighbouring Rodborough are famed for its magnificent 600 acres of Natural Trust maintained open Common land where one of three local golf courses can be found. London remains accessible by train from nearby Stroud railway station. Schooling is a huge attraction to the area as it includes Stroud High School for girls and Marling Grammar School for boys both based in Stroud.
