A SUBSTANTIAL EDWARDIAN HOUSE WITH EXTENSIVE GROUNDS, HIDDEN AWAY WITHIN ANCIENT BEECH WOODS IMMEDIATELY SOUTH OF CHELTENHAM - NOW IN NEED OF INVESTMENT BUT WITH TREMENDOUS POTENTIAL

Entrance Porch, Reception Hall, Drawing Room, Dining Room, Garden Room, Study, Kitchen, Breakfast Room, Pantry, Cloakroom,
En-Suite Master Bedroom, En-Suite Guest Room, 3 Further Bedrooms, Further Shower Room and Cloakroom, Double Garage, Studio/Gym, Other Outbuildings, Green House, Extensive West Facing Garden.

Directions - The property is most easily located by leaving our Painwick office in the direction of Cheltenham on the A46 and continuing out of the village passing the Royal William public house on your left. After a short distance turn right signposted to Cranham and Birdlip and continue on Buckholt road for approx 1.5 miles where you will see a red letter box on the right hand side. Turn right here and follow the track where Monks Ditch can be found as the only property along there on the left hand side.

Description - Monks Ditch is a good example of Edwardian architecture and accordingly reflects the confident nature of buildings of that period - high ceilings, well proportioned rooms and other appealing features. A substantial property of over 3,000 square feet, set in extensive grounds of about 1.5 acres, Monks Ditch would be a classic home from which to entertain and bring up a young family, in glorious surroundings. Now in need of investment to reflect the obvious potential, the accommodation in Monks Ditch currently comprises an outer porch leading into an impressive entrance hall (at the heart of the house), which sets the tone for what follows: 2 impressive reception rooms linked by a west facing garden room, study, kitchen, breakfast room, pantry and cloakroom. At first floor are 5 double bedrooms (two en-suite) and a shower room. The property has extensive outbuildings including a double garage and studio/gym, while the majority of the garden lies in front of it. Gently sloping - rectangular in shape, this would be a fascinating project for the keen gardener, as in recent years nature has been allowed to 'wild itself' but it used to be a significant feature of the property.

Location - Monks Ditch will appeal to a family who values privacy and peaceful secluded surroundings, but still be within easy reach of good schools and places of employment. Set at the heart of an extensive area of ancient beech woods, the house is approached by an unmarked lane which leads to a west facing clearing, where Monks Ditch is cocooned in its own little world. In direct contrast to this rural idyll, immediately to the north are Gloucester and Cheltenham, both offering excellent state and private secondary schools, shopping and other facilities, while London is only about 2 hours by road via either the A40 (Oxford/M40) or the A417 (Swindon/M4). Junction 11a of the M5 motorway is also very convenient for Bristol or the West Midlands. By rail Paddington is just over 90 minutes from nearby Stroud station and Birmingham New Street about 45 minutes from Cheltenham Spa station. One can walk through the woods from Monks Ditch directly into the pretty village of Cranham (primary school, pub and church), while nearby Painswick has good local facilities and there are 4 major supermarkets in Stroud, including a large Waitrose.

Stroud Railway Station - 8 miles, Cirencester - 11 miles, Cheltenham - 9 miles, M5 Motorway junction 11a - 3 miles. Distances are approximate.
