Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully presented detached character property situated in a superb rural location at Little London, Rodborough. This lovely elevated location allows for outstanding views across the valley to the Severn Vale and beyond to the Brecon Beacons with two well-regarded schools close by and hundreds of acres of National Trust land on the doorstep. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone under a pitched roof and has clearly been the subject of comprehensive improvement and thoughtful extension in the past, with first-class accommodation arranged over three floors.

An entrance area, stunning 14' green oak and glass garden room, 19' kitchen/breakfast room with hand made kitchen units, underfloor heating and walk-in larder and 16' sitting room are found on the ground floor. A landing, two double bedrooms, bathroom, separate WC and useful utility room are above, on the first floor, with another double bedroom found at the top of the house, on the second floor. The character interior is complemented by lovely landscaped gardens of approximately a third of an acre that make the most of what must be one of the best views in the area.


Outside
The property benefits from parking, a garage and lovely landscaped gardens. There is a block-paved gated parking area, leading to a garage with up and over door. A further paved area is beyond this, behind the house, with a 20' insulated workshop with power and light. A gated path leads down to the house and garden. There is a lovely paved sitting area by the house that takes in the stunning outlook, with gravelled paths leading through the landscaped gardens. These gardens have been carefully planned, with dry-stone walling, ornamental ponds and well planted borders, stocked with a variety of shrubs. There is a sitting spot with pergola on the top path, leading around to a useful store area with larger wood store and shed. The path then leads round to a decked area, a wild garden. There are also terraced gardens below the house with fruit cages, a shed and a green house.


Location
This location allows for superb views across the valley to the Severn Vale with two well-regarded schools (Gastrells and Rodborough Primary) close by. Just down the hill is the Kings Head public house and the cottage is surrounded on three sides by hundreds of acres of National Trust common land (Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons) nationally renowned sites for orchids and butterflies. A wide range of facilities are available in nearby Stroud approximately 2 miles distant to include an excellent range of state and private schools, restaurants and public houses, an award winning weekly farmers' market, leisure and sports centre and also a main line railway station with intercity services connecting with London (Paddington). Near by are Gloucester (8 miles), Cheltenham (12 miles) Cirencester (15 miles) and Bristol (20 miles) and Junction 13 of the M5 motorway is also within easy driving distance.
