Tenure: Freehold

Set in an elevated position on the edge of the village with stunning views onto open countryside, a recently built contemporary country house complete with outbuildings, garaging, gardens and paddocks. EPC rating C

Designed and built by the current owners in 2007, Highcross House is a substantial detached family home set in an elevated position with beautiful distant views over its own gardens and open farmland to the Cotswolds beyond. Built of brick under a slate roof and finished to a very high standard, the property is arranged over four floors with large open plan spaces which are versatile with each of the rooms being very spacious. Most of the rooms in the house enjoy dual aspects and because of the position of the house, are naturally very light.

The ground floor revolves around a contemporary glazed central staircase. On the lower ground floor, there is a large double garage, gym and a store room or cellar. The ground floor makes the most of the aspect and the view, each of the rooms opening onto a large sun terrace. There is under floor heating throughout the house as well as double glazed windows and doors.

Adjacent to the house is a superb garden room equipped with a spa pool, sauna and washing facilities.

Set on the brow of the hill, the house sits back from the lane behind electric gates and a tall boundary hedge. The driveway sweeps past a large carport (for several cars), round to the side of the house where it forks and hard unmade driveways lead down the barn on the one side or down the hill, to the lane at the bottom.

Facing south east towards the Cotswolds, the house looks over very private lawned gardens, the duck pond and an area of orchard.

Set in the glorious rolling west Gloucestershire countryside, on the northern edge of the Royal Forest of Dean, Minsterworth is a popular traddtional village within easy reach of the cathedral city of Gloucester with both the fashionable Spa town of Cheltenham and the riverside market town of Ross-on-Wye both being around 15-20 minutes' drive.

Gloucester train station (London Paddington 120mins) 4 miles, Cheltenham 12 miles, Ross-on-Wye 15 miles, Monmouth 22 miles, Bristol 39 miles, Birmingham 67 miles, London 107 miles (Distances Approximate).
