a striking contemporary home, nestled below minchinhampton common and providing breathtaking panoramic view.

The Property

On the edge of the Common, enjoying panoramic views lies this striking home. Now almost complete and benefiting from a Certificate of Completion, the property offers an exciting opportunity for any buyer wishing to add the finishing touches to their dream home. With a kitchen fitted in the utility and a downstair shower room, the house is habitable whilst the remaining projects are finished. The kitchen and bathrooms have been plumbed and wired ready for the new owner’s choice of fittings. Great thought has gone into the architectural design and its energy saving features. Heated by an air source heat pump, it also boasts a MHVR system that filters the air from each room. Highly insulated as well as triple glazed the house has earned a B rating EPC. The clean lines of the contemporary glazing are complimented by the mellow stone. The main entrance opens into a breathtaking reception hall, where a stunning staircase with American black Walnut treads forms a centrepiece, doors radiate to the living space and stairs rise to the first floor. The drawing room measures 22’11, has been carpeted and is fitted with a flue ready for a LPG gas fire. Ceiling to floor glazing and sliding doors enable the garden and view to become an extension of your living space. Once fitted the family kitchen/dining room (currently a living room) will be equally impressive owing to its size, bifold doors and outstanding view. Adjoining the kitchen is a utility (currently used as kitchen) and a wet room. The first-floor galleried landing ensures the free flow of light whilst a glimpse the valley is seen through Cotswold stone. Three bedroom and a bathroom are positioned on this floor with two having already been carpeted and one boasting an ensuite facility (requires fitting). A home office with borrowed light leads to the plant room. The main bedroom suite resides across the top floor, with a dressing room, and ensuite. Sliding doors open to a top terrace that requires completion.

Outside

Set in a plot measuring approximately 1/3rd of an acre, the property is approached through Cotswold stone pillars. Grounds extend in the majority to the front and side of the house and enjoy a panoramic outlook across and down the valley. A private treatment plant is located to the front of the plot. An attached double garage with electric door will provide parking and storage once floor has been finished. In need of landscaping the grounds offer a great opportunity for the new owner to design and plant the garden of their dreams. A large terrace accessed from the main bedroom suite will offer further outside space once completed for safe use.
