A stunning Grade II* listed classical Georgian house

Location

Chalford is situated in The Golden Valley which is the largest of the five valleys named as such because of the wealth it brought to the Stroud District. Chalford benefitted from the roaring wool trade in the 18th and 19th centuries and this history can be charted by its architecture which comprises late 18th and early 19th century houses, most of which belonged to prosperous clothiers. Amenities in Chalford include a community post office/ stores, cafe, riverside pub, primary school and a parish church. The property is perfectly positioned making the most of the accessible location, yet also offering privacy and seclusion throughout the gardens and grounds. Six miles to the south,is the ever popular town of Tetbury with its charming, typical, honeyed stone architecture, thriving boutique shops and restaurants. The royal residences of Highgrove (whose shop is located in Tetbury) and Gatcombe Park, where attendance at the twice-yearly Horse Trials is a must, are near by. Cirencester, about 6 miles, is often referred to as The Capital of the Cotswolds and has a hospital, leisure centre, several supermarkets as well as many boutiques, restaurants and clubs.

Stroud mainline station provides a regular First Great Western service to London Paddington taking approximately 90 minutes. Kemble Station is about 9 miles away with the journey taking about 75 minutes.

Good local private schools include Rose Hill Westonbirt, Beaudesert Park and Wycliffe, as well as the schools and colleges in Cheltenham. In addition, there is the highly regarded Stroud High School and Marling School.

Description

An elegant hallway gives way to a wealth of original features including a stunning cantilevered staircase which rises over three floors to a skylight. Additionally to this, there are detailed architraves and window shutters. Off the hall are the two principal reception rooms, both of which benefit from dual-aspect and being flooded with natural light.
At the rear of the house is a study and also a large kitchen breakfast room complete with a gas Aga and recently installed hand-made bespoke units.
