The Property

Lying at the entrance to a small development within the popular Cotswold village of Minchinhampton and boasting level grounds measuring 0.35 acres, sits The Sycamores, a detached modern four bedroom house. From Riccardo Road the rear of the property is seen prior to entering the grounds and viewing the attractive frontage. Entry is through a porch into a welcoming and rather impressive reception hall with high ceilings and a sweeping staircase in addition to a cloakroom and storage cloaks cupboard. Directly in front with double doors opening into the dining room with the kitchen/breakfast room positioned on one side with the drawing room on the other. The drawing room is an inviting room with natural light flooding through several windows. The central focal point is a fireplace with a gas fire inset. At the other end of the residence, the study lies enjoying a delightful view across the gardens. The kitchen/breakfast is fitted with wood fronted wall and base units and enjoys a double aspect, one overlooking the side courtyard. The same tiled floor is laid through the kitchen into the utility. Here there are further storage cupboards and the rear door. The spacious gallery landing enjoys views across the garden and offers access to the bedrooms. Views of the garden are also enjoyed in the main bedroom suite; it also benefits from a dressing area with two fitted wardrobes and an ensuite shower room. Three further double bedrooms, one being utilised as a home office, are all serviced by a family bathroom.


The enclosed level gardens are an extremely important highlight. In total, the whole plot measures just over 1/3 of an acre with the majority of the land sitting directly in front of the house. Parkland railings depict the entrance to the drive which sweeps passed the house to a designated ravelled parking area and access to the double garage. The main boundary is represented by a high hedge affording much privacy. These landscaped grounds are a joy with open expanses of lawn, wide and abundantly filled flower beds, wonderful woodland trials underneath two of the three protected Sycamores and an entertaining ‘chess and dominos’ patio with summer house and shed. To the side of the property a partially walled courtyard garden is laid with two levels of patios.
