Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A generously proportioned family home set in a secluded position in the popular village of Horsley, with more than 0.75 acres of grounds, a southerly aspect and a spectacular outlook across surrounding countryside and woodland.

Tanar House has been cleverly designed to embrace the southerly aspect and far-reaching views, and offers well-balanced accommodation over two floors. The property now requires a little updating, namely windows and some carpets to appreciate its full potential.

A large entrance hall provides access to all rooms with the cloakroom and office positioned conveniently by the front door, and the boot room/utility at the rear, alongside the garage. A generous sitting room with an open fire and stone surround connects with the 14' conservatory which, in turn opens onto the sun terrace and garden. The adjoining room, currently a music room/snug was designed to be a formal dining room and connects to the large kitchen/breakfast room. All of these principal rooms benefit from a great deal of light and countryside views. The 20' kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with solid wooden units, granite work surfaces, an integrated dishwasher, waste disposal system, and a brand new American style fridge/freezer.

An equally generous landing is light and bright and provides access to all rooms. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes, an en-suite bathroom and a lovely outlook across the surrounding countryside. There are three further bedrooms (one with an en-suite shower room) and a good-size family bathroom.

The extensive gardens and grounds have been cleverly landscaped to make the most of the views, while creating several different useable spaces from which to entertain and enjoy a great deal of privacy. The adjoining sun terrace is a particular feature, creating a generous and accessible entertaining space connected to the house. Two further terraces below offer low maintenance planting and a large, secluded area of lawn. A well-positioned large circular patio creates another useful entertaining space, currently occupied by a timber summerhouse, while a tranquil woodland wilderness sits below populated by a broad array of flora and fauna.

The property is approached over a private road and a gravelled driveway. A block paved driveway with space to park several vehicles is at the front and side of the house, and leads to a double garage with electric doors and a pedestrian door leading through to the utility room. There is gated access to the grounds from both sides of the property.

The well-regarded village of Horsley is a much sought after location because of its thriving community spirit, community run shop, church and primary school, public house and stunning landscape.

Nailsworth is approximately 1 1/2 miles away and is a popular market town with a range of independent shops, alongside supermarkets and plenty of restaurants and cafes to choose from.

Stroud, a larger town, four miles away - recently named as the best place to live (2021) by The Times, has a more comprehensive range of shopping facilities alongside a railway station which provides excellent commuter services.
