Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Superb position at popular Townsend, Randwick, for this individual detached family house. This location allows for a lovely outlook over fields to Whiteshill and the surrounding countryside, with two good primary schools close by and the Cotswold Way within easy reach. The property was built in 1955 using traditional methods and has been happily occupied by the current owner since 1986, with first class family accommodation arranged over two floors. An entrance hall leads through to the dining room, with the kitchen beyond this. These two rooms adjoin and essentially work as one space as an open plan kitchen/dining room. A useful study, cloakroom/W.c, lovely 18’ sitting room with fireplace and wood burning stove and a double glazed conservatory are also found on the ground floor, with a landing, four bedrooms and a bathroom above. The house is tastefully decorated, with Parquet floor in the hall, sitting and dining rooms and most windows enjoy a good outlook over either the garden or the neighbouring fields.

Outside The property benefits from large gardens that have obviously been the subject of careful planting and attention and would be a real ‘adventure playground’ for inquisitive children to play in. A driveway leads up to the house with a turning spot and space to park several vehicles. The garage is linked to the house and measures 19’10” x 10’0”, with double doors to the front, power and light and eaves storage. A path leads up to the house, with a large veranda at the front with space to sit and look out over the garden, with glazed doors leading to a terrace with decking. This space can also be accessed from the conservatory and enjoys a superb view across the neighbouring field to Randwick, Whiteshill and surrounding countryside. Steps lead down from this area into the front garden, with a large level lawn, well planted borders stocked with a variety of shrubs and mature trees, including a magnificent Willow. A path leads to the rear garden and the lawn here, with more mature trees and hedges lining the boundary. There is a productive growing area with vegetable beds, a good greenhouse and fruit bushes and a small orchard area with and Plum and Apple trees.

Building Plot
The gardens stretch up, away from the house with a wilder, less landscaped area above the garden described above. The current owners have obtained outline planning permission to build a detached dwelling here. This property would make the most of the outlook across fields to Randwick, Whiteshill and the surrounding countryside and prospective buyers may look to build here or simply enjoy the whole of the garden, which measures approximately one acre. The owners propose that the building plot would measure a little less than half an acre, leaving a good garden with the house. Planning detail can be found on the Stroud District Council website - reference S.16/0377/OUT
