If you are searching for a well balanced detached family residence positioned in the countryside including substantial & flexible accommodation with extensive grounds then please look no further.

The original period Cotswold stone house has undergone a variety of modern extensions over the years to now offer 3648 sq ft of accommodation in total (inc the lower ground level) found across three floors. The most recent improvements have been the installation of the bespoke kitchen/breakfast room which acts as the main hub of the house. The bi-fold doors opens out to the patio & is absorbed by a magnificent panoramic view across its own land toward the wooded valley beyond.

The layout of the living areas can be clearly seen in the floor plan. Points of interest include the two entrances at the front of the house, two internal staircases as it was once informally split to accommodate elderly parents, 25 ft dining room enjoys an attractive bay, a sitting room with wood burner, office, master bedroom with ensuite & potential to create a dressing area, four further bedrooms, bathroom & shower room. All of the rooms sitting to the rear of the house command breath taking views.

This very much loved home would benefit from some upgrading in certain areas.

Situation

Holcombe Glen is a small collection of privately owned homes tucked away in a wooded glen, lying between Minchinhampton, Nailsworth & Avening. The Weighbridge Inn, framed for it's pies, is only 215 metres walk away. These areas are famed for unspoilt Cotswold beauty, offering a selection of shops, restaurants, services, primary schools, Parish Churches, social & sports clubs. The larger nearby towns of Stroud & Cirencester offer more extensive facilities. Mainline railway stations can be located at Stroud & Kemble with direct lines to London (Paddington). There is a vast selection of schooling, private such as Beaudesert Prep School & Wycliffe College in addition to two grammar schools plus secondary schools as well as Stroud College for further educational opportunities.

Outside

A major feature to this family home are the extensive and outstanding gardens & grounds which are made up of a sun terrace, walled terraces with a vegetable plot & orchard, a bridge leading into a wooded island bounded by a meandering brook, and a couple of level grassed areas perfect for a football pitch It's breath-taking to simply spend time walking through the various 'natural rooms' & if you're lucky you might even see a kingfisher or deer. Children will enjoy making dams or dens, camping out or having a bbq over a fire pit. Alternatively families wishing to live 'the good life' couldn't find a better opportunity. It's a little piece of heaven. There is no vehicular access to the grounds just a pedestrian pathway.
