Description - Eight Gables has been transformed by the current vendors since they acquired it in 2014. Always spacious and with a prominent position on Minchinhampton Common, they recognised however what still needed to be done to achieve Eight Gables full potential and in doing so have created a superb family home. Eight Gables is beautifully presented throughout, with soft neutral colours that show the rooms off to their best effect. At the centre of the house is a quite magnificent kitchen which has been substantially enlarged and flows through to the adjacent breakfast room with patio doors opening onto a broad terrace overlooking the garden. There are four further reception rooms on the ground floor, a new purpose built utility room, cloakroom, and at the rear an integral wing which would be ideal for a teenager, comprising three further rooms two of which are at first floor level. In the main house both the master and guest bedrooms are en-suite and there are three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside, there is plenty of space to park a number of cars, with a broad gravelled sweep at the front and sides of the house, and the garden is level, simply kept to lawns with a number of trees which add character. There is a substantial garden shed.

Location - Eight Gables faces south and looks out towards Minchinhampton Common. This spectacular expanse of ancient pasture is a marvellous source of walks for dog lovers and also hosts one of the three challenging golf courses at Minchinhampton. The town itself, which is immediately across the common has excellent facilities including a very popular primary school and a thriving church. Immediately down the hill is Nailsworth which is increasingly popular for its shopping with free parking, while Bath, Bristol, Swindon, Cheltenham and Gloucester are within reasonable commuting distance. Minchinhampton is in the apex of the M4 and M5 Motorways, London is normally about two hours and there is an excellent train service into Paddington from Stroud Station - approximately 93 minutes. Eight Gables is just a few minutes from Beaudesert Park, now one of the most popular preparatory schools in the area and very convenient for Thomas Keble at Eastcombe or the Stroud grammar schools. Minchinhampton has a range of sports clubs (rugby, cricket, football and tennis) and good bus services.

Motorway M5 J13 Stroud - 6 miles, Motorway M4 J15 Swindon - 29 miles, Motorway M4 J18 Old Sodbury (Bath/Bristol) - 18 miles, Stroud Railway Station 3.5 miles, Kemble Railway Station - 13 miles, Cirencester (central) - 10.5 miles, Cheltenham (central) - 17.5 miles, Bristol Airport - 40 miles.
