An imposing and substantial attached Grade II listed period home centrally located in Balls Green, in between the market towns of Nailsworth & Minchinhampton. The present owners have lovingly restored this important local residence. Their aim was to renovate the period features at the same time as upgrading the facilities to a higher and more comfortable standard. The various works carried out have helped to create a fabulous family home. The official listing dates the property to the early 19th Century. Even though Balls Green House is attached to its neighbour, it very much feels like a detached property. As you will see from the floor plan, the layout of the comprehensive accommodation is found over four levels with a central staircase. Upon entering the property, you are met with a beautiful entrance hall with access to both of the principal reception rooms and the kitchen. The drawing room benefits from access out to the garden. On the lower ground floor you will find a 29' basement/games room with access to a utility room, a study and a useful store room. You can also access the garden from this floor. The bedrooms are located on the first and second floors. Bedrooms one and two enjoy a 'Jack and Jill' bathroom. On the second floor you will find two further bedrooms and a bathroom, with two more bedrooms accessed by separate staircases. Two further rooms offer extra living space with one room leading out to the rear garden. Property Ref: STR150246.

Situation

Balls Green is a small collection of homes lying in an elevated rural position just outside Minchinhampton. Minchinhampton has a range of independent amenities including a delicatessen, butcher, chemist, cafés, tea room, restaurant, an organic dairy, a useful small supermarket, doctors' surgery, library, primary school, two churches and further facilities. The property is situated on an escarpment position enjoying beautiful views over the surrounding Cotswold valley. The house faces south west and the garden enjoys the afternoon sun. The nearby market town of Nailsworth offers a wider selection of shops, bars and amenities with both Stroud and Cirencester also being within reach. The communication links are also excellent with Stroud and Kemble Stations offering high-speed train links to London Paddington in under 90 minutes and the A419 linking through to the M4 either at Junction 18 for Bath or Junction 17 for Malmesbury. Schooling is also a big pull for this area with both Wycliffe College and Beaudesert Park School being popular choices for local families. The area also has two grammar schools, and Minchinhampton itself offers excellent primary education.

Outside

The gardens are situated to the side and rear of the property. A shared driveway leads past the neighbouring property up to a private gravelled parking area, offering parking for several vehicles. The property contains a detached garage with a substantial store room above. The extensive grounds are quite exceptional & will be any gardener's dream. Mainly laid to lawn with an abundance of trees, shrubs, roses & hedging, the majority of the garden is completely private and is partly enclosed by Cotswold stone walls. The garden enjoys views over a neighbouring field, which is owned and managed by the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust.
