Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A fine detached period cottage set in large gardens with beautiful views across neighbouring farmland. Dating back around 170 years the property has great charm and character and offers extremely well proportioned accommodation with four bedrooms, two with en suite facilities along with family bathroom. There are three generous reception rooms with a fabulous inglenook fireplace in the sitting room and a 25' kitchen/breakfast room overlooking fields and adjoining large utility room with separate cloakroom/shower.

Approached by a long gravelled driveway the house overlooks its lovely grounds and gardens, which extend to approximately three quarters of an acre with extensive lawns and terraced patios with barbecue areas, ideal for outside entertaining backing onto open countryside with southerly views towards Slimbridge Parish Church in the distance. With this wonderful setting and a great deal of privacy and seclusion it is easy to forget the hamlet of Troy Town is less than a mile from the pretty village of Slimbridge, famous for the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust with a superb collection of birds from all over the world.


Although rural and peaceful, the location is by no means isolated with the towns of Dursley and Berkeley only a few miles and Cam village, 2 miles approximately with supermarkets and day-to-day shops, schooling and recreational facilities. The main regional centres of Cheltenham, Bristol and Gloucester are all within daily commuting distance via the A38 and M5 motorway network and there is a main line train station, approximately 2 miles at Box Road, serving Bristol and London via Gloucester.

There is an excellent range of choice of private and state schools in the area and ample sporting opportunities including a number of golf courses at Cheltenham and Chepstow and delightful walks and rides along the Sharpness canal and The Cotswold Way.
