Tenure: Freehold

The Naight House is a jewel. Originally thought to date back to the Middle Ages, this handsome property has developed over the centuries into an idyllic gentleman's residence, set in approximately three acres of ground in the peaceful rural community of Minsterworth, Gloucestershire. The Georgian architecture is enhanced by delightful formal gardens with river frontage and natural woodland, both renowned for their beautiful crowds of snowdrops in the winter months. The house offers classic proportioned accommodation with a wealth of period features, including impressive fireplaces, original window shutters and tiled natural stone floors. There are five reception rooms and six bedrooms. The hub of the home is the warm and comforting ambiance of the kitchen/family room. Sitting adjacent to a lovely walled kitchen garden is an original two storey coach house that has potential for development. There are other outbuildings including, on the banks of the river, a unique two storey fish house which has the potential for conversion into a private studio, writing room or fantastic childrens play house. A family home of stature in a stunning location.

The grounds extend to approximately three acres of level ground that benefits from a bright southerly aspect. Formal gardens and lawns surround the house displaying many pleasing features including well established flower beds, herbaceous borders including specimen trees, a raised river pathway and a fertile, enclosed kitchen garden. A large rear courtyard extends the length of the property creating a perfect outdoor entertaining area. The remainder of the ground is divided into a riverside orchard and a broad leaf woodland with an impressive display of winter snowdrops offering a tranquil place to observe the active bird and wild life.
