Full description

Tenure: Freehold

If you are wishing to purchase a property that is completely unique and individual, one where the setting is so breath taking and where the house sits so effortlessly in the landscape, where visitors arrive and pause on the driveway, just to admire all that they are about to see, then The Naight House is a property that you will want to view

Believed to date back as far as the early 1500`s, the property throughout its lifetime has been added to, tweaked and remodelled but today with its Georgian architecture, the property stands within formal grounds and woodlands of approx. three acres, offers six bedrooms and accommodation arranged over two floors. Furthermore, there is a detached red brick stable block that potentially offers a multitude of uses. There are detached garage/workshops and a vegetable garden, hidden behind a traditional red brick wall.

Located in the village of Minsterworth, which is to the south west of the City of Gloucester and accessed from the A48 the village is a fourteen-minute drive to the cathedral city with the regency town of Cheltenham being a slightly longer drive of twenty minutes.

Returning to the property, a gravelled approach leads to the house where the driveway runs through the property and leads to a parking area found to the rear. From here the driveway continues, runs around the back of the outbuildings, through woodland and returns you back to the gravelled approach you entered from originally. From the moment you step from the car, you cannot but be anything other than impressed by the setting. The formal lawns are beautifully green and flat, the owner paying attention to ensure the stripes in the lawns are as straight as possible.

Within the grounds high trees surround the formal lawns, giving privacy where ever one looks and beyond this is a woodland, with pathways cutting through the trees, running parallel with the River Severn from which banks gives a wonderful overview of this exceptional landscape
Once inside the period of the property is evident: high ceilings, sash windows, stone fireplaces and a log burning fire only helping to recreate the atmosphere of yesteryear. The rooms are light and spacious, with the current occupiers arranging the rooms as: drawing room, study, library, dining room, small sitting room and finally the open plan kitchen/breakfast room

With gardens to both front and rear aspects of the property, you will enjoy a stunning outlook from whichever window you are looking through.
Moving upstairs, five of the six bedrooms are double rooms with three of them being double aspect so increasing the level of light one can enjoy. There are also two en suite bathrooms and a further en suite bath and shower room. A large room in the middle of property also offers the option to create a seventh bedroom.

Returning outside, the detached stable block offers two floors with the ground floor currently being used for storage and workshop with the upstairs being used as a studio/games room for the current owner`s grandchildren. Other buildings include a detached garage/workshop with in and out access to both ends of the building, light and power and large double opening doors. The final outbuilding is a fish house, this being a detached red brick house that sits on the bank of river, offering the most wonderful of views and is currently used as a writing room. All outbuildings have mains water and electricity.

In summary, to own a property such as this is a privilege, to own a piece of history, to own something that is so unique and so individual adds value in its own right. The Naight House is all of this and so much more. To arrange a viewing, please contact the office on 01242 220080 and we would be delighted to meet with you
