Property Description

Full description

This is Different!

A bit of history!
We have lived in ‘Gizelle’ for 28 years, brought up four children, one dog and several cats! Norton is a village with easy access to Gloucester, Tewkesbury, Cheltenham and the M5. The very successful primary school has an attached pre-school unit and many events are organised in the village hall including playgroup, toddlers, keep fit, W.I. etc. There are two pubs, The Red Lion by the River Severn and the New Dawn Inn, recently refurbished and very popular. There is a rugby club, MUGA, kennels and church. We have spent many a happy hour with our children walking over the hills, across fields and through woods.

‘Gizelle’ is different!
The house built in the 1970s is situated up a private lane of nine houses, all well established and privately owned. It is approached up a drive providing parking for three/four cars. The garden is found at the side of the house as the back of the house overlooks a private lane leading to the old rectory. Originally, the garden was grassed but patio, decking, bark and pots have taken over. The summerhouse too has finally given up the ghost at the bottom of the garden after years of providing an idyllic refuge under the trees.

Upstairs, off a large landing, there are four double bedrooms (one with en suite) and two further bedrooms that have been used as a study and nursery, and a family bathroom. A spacious loft is fully insulated. There is a down-stairs cloakroom with shower. A large open plan kitchen and sitting room lead to a utility room and useful store. A spacious lounge with patio doors overlooks the garden.

Why are we moving?
Now it is just the two of us and the house is too big so we need to downsize. It is a home that deserves another family to create new memories and although we will be sad to move on, nothing would make us happier to see this happen.

Viewing comes highly recommended to appreciate the space on offer.
