located in a tranquil setting, tucked away off minchinhampton common and surrounded by farmland, lies this detached five bedroom family home.

The Property

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.

Outside

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.
