Full description

*Easy access to central Stroud with direct rail links to London Paddington*

Built in the mid-18th century and grade II listed, Lower Woodlands exudes period charm with its classical façade of handsome Cotswold Stone and elevated views across to the fringe of the Slad Valley.

A Tuscan pillared entrance porch sets the scene and leads you into a grand, light-filled hallway, with its graceful sweeping staircase. Pale Cotswold stone flooring creates a soft colour palette that continues throughout the ground floor. The drawing room and dining room retain many original features and have a reassuringly traditional feel with their impressive south facing windows and grand fireplaces. Oak flooring adds warmth and texture to these stunning rooms.

A family room, with access to a south facing lawn at the front of the house, is a perfect place to relax and unwind and leads through to a contemporary Shaker style kitchen. An Aga adds to the flavour of the original period of the house and helps create a space that's always ready with the warmest of welcomes.

On the first floor is a galleried landing and three double bedrooms, all with large windows overlooking the gardens and views beyond. The master bedroom boasts an impressive panelled en-suite shower room and this floor also hosts a family bathroom and small shower room.

Through a door off the landing is a little surprise in the form of a utility room leading to a secret walled garden that is accessed via a bridge. It's a charming sun-trap whatever the season. A wooden staircase leads to the third floor with three further bedrooms, bathroom and sitting room in the eaves, with exposed oak beams that evoke a feeling of relaxed charm. 

The garden behind the house is set into the hillside but has been cleverly terraced with a traditional parterre on one level. Red brick steps, beech hedges, gates and archways entice you to explore its beauty. The way the landscape works with the structure of Lower Woodlands House creates a feeling that it has all been here forever and we guarantee, one peek and you'll want to be a part of its future.
