Location - The Toadsmoor Valley is rather special. Characterised by magnificent stands of mature hardwoods on either flank which reach up to the sky above in a dramatic fashion, it has an atmosphere of its own. Through it runs the road connecting the hill top village of Eastcombe with its excellent secondary school (Thomas Keble) to the valley below, and from there to the east, Cirencester and, to the west, Stroud, so the location is excellent for anyone needing good communications. London is about 2 hours drive, Bristol about 50 minutes, Cheltenham, about half an hour - all depending upon the time of day. Alternatively, trains from Stroud Station are scheduled from 93 minutes into London Paddington, and connections via Birmingham New Street. Amenities include great walks, excellent pubs and a choice of challenging golf courses including three at nearby Minchinhampton alone. There are local shops in Eastcombe or Bussage, and Stroud has Waitrose, Sainsbury's and Tesco superstores, in addition to its award winning Farmers Market on Saturdays. This part of Gloucestershire is fortunate to have excellent schools both in the state and private sectors, so is very popular with families, and Mill House with its environs would particularly suit budding naturalists or young explorers.
Description - Mill House occupies an ancient site tucked away in the Toadsmoor Valley, surrounded by towering banks of mature woodland which form a magnificent backdrop and a constantly changing kaleidoscope of colour throughout the seasons. The house was built in about 1971 but under the current ownership it has been dramatically improved so is now presented to the highest standard. Light and space are two of the immediate sensations on entering Mill House (on both floors), as well as a perception that this is a house which simply works well with everything where you would expect to find it. Outside, it is surrounded by a practical sized garden featuring decked areas and a loggia draped in a prolific vine, beyond which is a naturalists paradise - its own slice of woodland. The latter is home to a wide variety of wildlife including a very rare species - the Yellow Necked wood mouse. Mill House has three good reception rooms, a large kitchen which easily accommodates a central table, ground floor cloakroom and four double bedrooms, an en-suite shower room and a separate bathroom which includes a shower cubicle. Both shower room and bathroom have recently been updated. There is parking for four or five cars, a single garage and a garden shed.
