Location - Chester Hill House, which has lovely views, is situated in the charming little village of South Woodchester, between Stroud and Nailsworth, in the south-west of the Cotswolds. Accessed off a little country lane, South Woodchester straggles along the slopes of a valley and in this part comprises groups of houses and cottages interspersed by small fields and vineyards; the local soil being excellent for wine production. Amongst its other attractions, South Woodchester is popular because of its proximity to a number of good schools especially Beaudesert Park Preparatory school on Minchinhampton Common, the latter also having three challenging golf courses. With the A46 in the valley below linking Cheltenham and Bath, this is also an ideal location for commuters with Junction 13 of the M5 motorway about 10 minutes away and Junction 18 of the M4 motorway in the opposite direction. There are frequent train services into London Paddington with connections via Cheltenham into Birmingham from Stroud Station, the town also having two grammar schools for girls and for boys, an award winning Farmers Market and three supermarkets. Nearby Nailsworth is even more convenient with free parking and really good shopping and a choice of excellent restaurants.

Description - Chester Hill House is a beautifully presented example of a Grade ll listed Georgian country house that retains the many features which make this genre so exceptional; symmetrical rooms, gracious high ceilings, ornate fireplaces and detailed plaster work. An exceptionally fine family home, Chester Hill House has a lovely welcoming atmosphere that is obvious from the moment you step through the front door into its impressive entrance hall which has one of the defining features of the house, a balustraded oval light well. All four reception rooms and the kitchen lead off this hall, while at lower ground level there is a snooker room. Upstairs, off a central landing, are six double bedrooms (two en-suite and the third with a shower) as well as a family bathroom, and the house has excellent ancillary accommodation with two integral store rooms. There is a purpose built detached garage block with a studio/cloakroom over, a garden store and potting shed and, within the mature grounds, a boules court! In all Chester Hill house is set in about 2.3 acres which include two small paddocks with their own access.
