  • Bedrooms: 5
23 High Street is a substantial and deceptively spacious individual detached family house, built some 45 years ago in an elevated setting with superb views over the village.

The "upside-down" accommodation consists of a spacious reception/entrance hall with a staircase to the landing. Bedrooms One, Two, Three and Four are all doubles, three of which have fitted or built-in wardrobes, and Bedroom Five is a single. Together they share a shower room with a tiled shower cubicle, low-level WC and wash hand basin plus space for an automatic washing machine.

At first floor level, the galleried landing has a feature picture window to the front, enjoying the views. The family bathroom has a corner jacuzzi bath plus low-level WC and wash hand basin and an airing cupboard housing the insulated cylinder. The excellent sized through lounge has a natural stone feature fireplace plus windows to three aspects including impressive views from the front and side picture windows. There is a separate dining/sitting room, again with views to the front, and the kitchen has a range of light oak units comprising base and wall cupboards plus access into a dwarf-walled conservatory on the back of the house with double glazed French doors on to the rear garden. Leading off the kitchen down several steps is a spacious breakfast room with built-in warm and cool storage cupboards, and from here there is access into the games/family room.

Under these last two rooms is an integral double garage with a large up-and-over door, and the garage incorporates the oil-fired central heating boiler. The landscaped front garden has a tarmacadam drive, with parking in front of the garage for several vehicles. The remainder of the front garden is laid to lawn, with well-stocked flower and shrub borders plus an area of patio immediately in front of the house. Steps lead up either side of the property to the rear garden which is arranged on several levels and laid to two lawns plus a patio at the highest point which commands the best of the views. A mature apple tree stands in one corner and there is a productive vegetable garden to the side.

AMENITIES The village of Avening is located almost equidistant between Nailsworth and Tetbury and provides local facilities which include two public houses, a primary school with an outstanding reputation, and a historic Saxon Church. Located on the northern edge of Avening is the well-known Minchinhampton Golf Club, boasting two 18 hole courses.

Avening is very much in the "Royal Triangle" with Gatcombe Park, the home of The Princess Royal, being immediately to the north of the village and Highgrove House, the country home of HRH The Prince of Wales, a few miles away near Tetbury. The nearest towns are Nailsworth and Tetbury, both of which have a reasonable range of local facilities including shops, public houses and primary schools, with a secondary school at Tetbury. Also within the local area are a number of places of interest including the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum with some 18,000 trees and shrubs in approximately 600 acres of landscaped grounds.
