The Smithy, Wotton-Under-Edge, Gloucestershire

Property Description

Full description

Housesimple are delighted to offer for sale this chain-free spacious detached family house with great character set in the stunningly picturesque South Cotswolds. It is situated approximately 15 miles NE of Bristol in the charming, vibrant and much sought-after Cotswold town of Wotton-under-Edge which lies at the foot of the Cotswold escarpment. The property itself has very fine views to the local hills from which spectacular views across the Severn Estuary to the Welsh mountains, North Devon coast, Marlborough Downs and Malvern Hills can be enjoyed. The Cotswold Hills are a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and rate amongst the finest walking areas in the country.

The versatile accommodation consists of entrance porch, large fitted modern farmhouse kitchen with gas fired Aga, utility room, study, multi-aspect conservatory and spacious living room with wood burning stove. The living room leads into a downstairs bedroom with en-suite bathroom including wet-room shower which has the potential to offer specialised ground floor accommodation.

The first floor can be reached via two separate staircases and consists of three further bedrooms including master bedroom with en-suite and separate family bathroom. The property has a very good standard of décor (mostly in neutral colours) with original features of exposed oak beams and Cotswold stonework. There are fitted carpets throughout, gas central heating (installed circa 2005) and double glazing (new UPVC Rosewood units to seven windows on the westerly aspect, 2010.) and a security system. Rewiring and re-plumbing was carried out circa 2004.

Outside, the conservatory leads to a paved terrace with steps down to a mature level garden laid mainly to lawn. The terrace and lawn are separated by an attractively planted rockery. There is a small enclosed garden to the side of the property with access from the road only, and also a further small kitchen herb garden to the right of the entrance porch. All the garden areas offer good privacy whilst not being overly enclosed. There is off-road parking for up to five vehicles on the tarmac driveway and a double garage (new flat roof, 2009, with 10 year guarantee.)

Wotton-under-Edge is a delightful rural town on The Cotswold Way, unspoilt by over-development and yet within easy commuting distance of Bristol, Bath, Gloucester, Stroud and Cheltenham via road and rail (10 min drive to station), bus services from town centre. The ten minute walk into town can be taken via The Cotswold Way which follows a delightful stream-side walk.

Although intrinsically rural, Wotton has an exceptionally thriving community with a busy Arts Centre, highly successful and eclectic arts and music scene, an award winning local cinema, outdoor swimming pool, library, sports centre, gyms and a wide range of pubs, restaurants and take-aways. There are two primary schools and one secondary school all of which are highly regarded. There are two doctors’ surgeries and a pharmacy plus an interesting selection of shops including two art galleries and several boutiques. There are a number of children’s play areas including nearby Synwell playing field. This location also benefits from being close many places of interest such as The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at Slimbridge, Berkeley Castle, Roman Baths at Bath, Badminton, Gloucester-Sharpness Canal, and two gliding clubs, to name but a few.
