Location

Lower Woodlands House is situated on the edge of Stroud, close to the Slad Valley, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and immortalised as the setting for Laurie Lee’s Cider with Rosie. Indeed, one of the closest pubs to the house is The Woolpack in Slad which was regularly frequented by the author and poet. Stroud, encircled by five dramatic valleys and once described by the London Evening Standard as Notting Hill with wellies, is a small market town with a Bohemian feel and with many specialist shops, cafes, galleries, markets and bookstalls. There is also a Waitrose supermarket, Vue cinema and an award winning Farmers’ Market. There is a broad choice of state and private schools in the area including Beaudesert Preparatory School on Minchinhampton Common and Wycliffe College at Stonehouse. Marling School for Boys in Stroud and Stroud High School for Girls are both state funded grammar schools. There are also many schools and colleges in Cheltenham. From Stroud there is a regular First Great Western service to London Paddington whilst Junction 13 of the M5 is not too far distant. There are many and varied recreational activities in the area including racing at Cheltenham and Chepstow, gliding at Aston Down, polo at Cirencester Park and Aston Down and First Division Rugby at Kingsholm, Gloucester. Casual golfers will enjoy the Painswick and the Old Minchinhampton golf courses where players need to avoid the roaming cows! On the opposite side of the town are the two new courses at Minchinhampton Golf Club, one with a parkland style and the other with links characteristics. Sailing is available at the Cotswold Water Park and Frampton-on-Severn.

Description

Lower Woodlands House is an elegant Grade II house listed with origins dating back to the mid-18th Century. The interior is beautifully presented throughout, with an impressive hand built kitchen with aga and beautiful bathrooms. The property is built of Cotswold stone under a slate roof with sash windows and is a fine family house of considerable style with many original features.

The principle reception rooms are approached off the central hall and look out over the garden. The grand drawing room has a very pretty bay window and opens into the library creating excellent entertaining space. The third reception room is a family sitting room and opens into the pretty garden. This could be used as a formal dining room although there is a separate dining area off the kitchen. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom and on the lower ground floor there is a wine cellar, accessed off the kitchen.

A very fine staircase leads to the first floor with three double bedrooms off a galleried landing. These rooms all look out to the front. To the rear are an en suite bathroom to the master bedroom, a family bathroom and a separate shower room. There is also a first floor laundry room which, via a ‘bridge’ has access to a walled sun terrace.

The second floor has three further bedrooms together with a bathroom and office with exposed timbers and a sitting room or seventh bedroom.

The property is approached over a gravel driveway (part shared) which leads to a parking area adjacent to the front door. Close by is the garaging and a wooded are with less formal garden and a raised decking area.

The principle garden is at the front of the house and is laid to lawn and down to a paddock. To the rear of the house is a very attractive and raised parterre with gravelled pathways. The stylish garden is a particular feature of the property. In total, the property extends to about 0.6acres.

Square Footage: 4,510 sq ft
Acreage: 0.65 Acres
