Location - The Woodhouse is situated in the lee of Rodborough Common, off a peaceful country lane that meanders along the hillside between the villages of Rodborough and Butterrow, immediately south of Stroud. The house is a few minutes of all the amenities of this eclectic Cotswold market town with its interesting industrial history, the reason why delightful old houses like The Woodhouse, were commissioned in the 18th and 19th centuries in the surrounding valleys. The common to the rear is a wonderful open space, acres of natural countryside free for anyone to enjoy and cared for by the National Trust, while the approach to the house is past a traditional farm, whose unspoilt fields surround it. Stroud has a main line train station (London Paddington from 93 minutes), Waitrose, as well as Tesco and Sainsburys supermarkets and many independent retailers. Bristol and Cheltenham are within commuting distance with junction 13 of the M5 motorway only about ten minutes away, and London about two hours drive. The local community is both vibrant and friendly, while amongst other advantages of this location is the choice of excellent schools. Stroud itself retains highly regarded grammar schools, and in the independent sector nearby, are Beaudesert Park and Wycliffe College.
Motorway M5 J13 Stroud - 5 miles, Motorway M4 J15 Swindon - 30 miles, Motorway M4 J18 Old Sodbury (Bath/Bristol) - 17 miles, Stroud Railway Station - 3.5 miles, Cheltenham (central) - 17 miles, Bristol Temple Meads - 33.5 miles. Distances are approximate.
Description - The Woodhouse is a fine example of a late Georgian country house with all the symmetry and proportions that make this period so special. The house has an elevated setting and is surrounded by farmland while being conveniently close to all the amenities of Stroud. Internally, the real joy of the house is that although in need of significant investment to realise its full potential, the fact it retains so many distinctive architectural features would make it a very rewarding project, especially as it is not a listed building. The principal accommodation is currently arranged over the first two floors with four generous reception rooms and five bedrooms, cellars beneath and a spacious two bedroom flat on the top floor. At a later date a substantial snooker room has been added on one side with a conservatory on the other. Intriguingly, the vendors have converted the original coach house into a spectacular leisure complex with a unique clover-leaf shaped swimming pool as its centre piece and extensive decked areas outside from which to sit and admire the views. The Woodhouse retains almost two acres of grounds to protect its amenity, including a level lower lawn which would once have been a grass tennis court. It has a front and rear drive with parking for multiple vehicles.
