Location - Windyridge is situated in Burleigh, just across the common from the historic old market town of Minchinhampton. It is a very popular address at which to live because of the proximity to the common, a marvellous area of open space in the care of the National Trust and the location of one of the three challenging golf courses at Minchinhampton. The cottage is situated at the head of a no-through lane, tucked away beneath the brow of the escarpment, flanked by the overgrown walls of an old quarry, so private, peaceful and secluded. London is however nominally within 2 hours by road with trains into London Paddington from nearby Stroud scheduled from 95 minutes. The latter is the regional and administrative centre for the district and has three major supermarkets including a large Waitrose. Minchinhampton can provide most local necessities or there is Nailsworth, just down the hill. All the main regional centres of employment are within commuting distance of Burleigh, access to the M5 motorway is good and there are excellent schools in the vicinity, both in the state and private sectors, including Beaudesert Park just across the common and Stroud Grammar Schools.

Motorway M5 J13 Stroud - 5 miles, Motorway M4 J15 Swindon - 30 miles, Motorway M4 J18 Old Sodbury (Bath/Bristol) - 17 miles, Stroud Railway Station - 3.5 miles, Kemble Railway Station - 14.5 miles, Cheltenham (central) - 17 miles, Bristol Temple Meads - 33.5 miles, Bristol Airport - 40 miles. Distances are approximate.

Description - Windyridge is a most attractive period cottage which would now benefit from updating to take full advantage of its special setting. Detached, the cottage is tucked away off Minchinhampton Common, from where it has panoramic views out over the Golden Valley and beyond. The accommodation currently comprises an entrance hall at mezzanine level with steps down to a corridor running the length of the rear of the cottage. This is flanked by all the rooms on this floor; the sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom and a utility room, allowing the views to be truly appreciated. Upstairs they are however even better. A broad landing serves the master bedroom suite, a further double bedroom and the family bathroom. There are another two generous sized double bedrooms on the second floor. The cottage has a Grant oil fired boiler supplying central heating and domestic hot water, and is extensively double glazed. Outside it has a private driveway at the head of which is a large double garage. The garden has been well maintained, is colourful, full of character and includes good level areas. The plot is about 0.20 of an acre.

Services - Oil fired central heating (Grant boiler). Mains water and electricity
