Full description

A VERY WELL PRESENTED CLASSIC RETRO STYLE HOUSE, IN AN EXCEPTIONAL TRANQUIL QUIET SETTING, IN A HIDDEN VALLEY ON THE EDGE OF SHEEPSCOMBE.

Entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, utility room, cloakroom, 4 bedrooms, bathroom and shower room, external cellar, private driveway, double garage, large plot of almost an acre.

Description - Extra Cover has been designed to take full advantage of its exceptional setting, in a tranquil wooded valley on the edge of the pretty village of Sheepscombe. Very well presented, it has a substantial plot of almost an acre, is in an elevated position and south facing, so attracts any available sun. One of a select group of similar contemporary properties, Extra Cover is fringed by some 40 acres of natural woodland in the care of English Nature and has lovely views across the valley laid out before it. A very comfortable home with flexible accommodation over two floors, the kitchen and bathroom fittings have been updated by the vendors and the interior has a lovely fresh and welcoming feel. Currently the accommodation comprises two generous reception rooms and four double bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room, double garage and private driveway. However the potential to do more is obvious - subject to planning consent. The option exists to add another floor or extend, as other owners on this exclusive site have done with spectacular results and arguably Extra Cover has the best location of them all, being at the head of the development flanked by fields and woodland with no other properties beyond it.

Location - Sheepscombe is special. A classic example of what a traditional Cotswold village should look like, it is set in ancient valley in the fold of the hills immediately east of Painswick. Not on any busy road, to the uninitiated, Sheepscombe comes as something of a pleasant surprise, when on coming round the bend of a country lane, it suddenly opens up before you, a scattered collection of mainly period properties interspersed by flashes of green (small fields and paddocks) with a good pub at its centre and a thriving village cricket team! A very active community with much going on, the village has a good primary school so is popular with families and is very accessible to Cheltenham or Gloucester. The former has excellent shopping, music, literary and science festivals as well as its famous race course, while both have outstanding secondary schools in the state and private sectors. There are lovely walks in the vicinity of Sheepscombe and a network of lanes to explore for cyclists, a challenging 18 hole golf course at Painswick and 3 mayor supermarkets in Stroud, from whose main line station trains into London Paddington are scheduled from just over 90 minutes.

General Information - Mains water and electricity are connected to the property, which has private drainage. The owners of Extra Cover contribute 'pro rata' to the maintenance of that part of the driveway to the development, which is shared. The property is in an Official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Directions - The property is most easily located by leaving our office in Painswick on the A46 in the direction of Cheltenham, passing through the traffic lights and as you begin to leave the village turn right signposted to Sheepscombe. Continue all the way into the village passing the Butchers Arms public house on your left and then take the first left into Far End. Follow this lane almost to the end and before it dips away turn left up the hill where the driveway to Extra Cover can be found as the last property on the right at the top.
