Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
This historic and charming property occupies one of the most enviable positions in the area. Nestled amongst its own woodland and gardens in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the house enjoys complete privacy and tranquillity, afforded by this unique location.

Accessed via a long and private drive the house has been in the same family for some 40 years. Originally wanting an escape from their hectic lifestyle the house lends itself well to someone wanting a 'back to nature' lifestyle, but is only 3 miles from Stroud and its many amenities.

The original period cottage has been sympathetically enlarged into the five bedroom family home you see now. It has retained some fun and interesting elements with surprisingly large rooms and period features.

It is, however, the views and location of the property that really make this house special. All of the rooms enjoy stunning views, predominantly over the property's own land, but also over the surrounding woodland and beyond.

Barn:

This detached former barn has now been converted into a multi-functional space and could (subject to planning) be modified into a standalone property. Currently used as a home office and studio, the barn has been wonderfully converted with exceptional light and full use of the space over two floors. There is a fully working kitchen, complete with wood burner, modern bathroom and independent services. There is also a former garage, now a storeroom and attached garage.

Outside

This property is beholden only to its wonderful positon. Located at the head of a long private drive the house is ideally positioned to make the most of the dramatic views. There are gardens surrounding the house, and a patio from which to enjoy the views and lake.

The land, which the current owners have kept as organic land with no pesticide use during at least the last 25 years, is undulating and has two open grazing paddocks, sections of mature woodland and a meandering pathway leading through the area. The current owners have recently planted over 100 saplings to replenish the woodland.

The first section of driveway is owned and shared by the single neighbouring house, before becoming private further down.

pSituation

Middle Lypiatt is on a ridge above the Toadsmoor Valley between Cirencester and Stroud. These steep wooded valleys are in the heart of the Cotswold Hills and part of England's largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Middle Lypiatt occupies a rural position with far reaching views whilst the popular market town of Stroud (3miles) and Cirencester (13.6 miles) are nearby with their extensive range of shops, restaurants and recreational facilities.
