Welcome to number 23, Rockwood House, a two bedroom, first floor apartment located within a Grade II Listed building that can be dated back to 1785 offered to the market with No Onward Chain and situated within well stocked, well tendered gardens that offer maturity and are awash with colour.

The picturesque medieval market town of Chipping Sodbury is located approx. six miles from Junction 14 of the M5 and around six miles from Junction 18 of the M4. Larger towns and cities of Bath, Bristol and Cheltenham can be accessed within a 30-minute drive. The historic town lies at the foot of the southern Cotswold escarpment in southern Gloucestershire. It`s main street consists of 17th century Cotswold stone buildings and elegant 18th century Georgian shop facades. It also has a golf club, tennis club and several cafes, restaurants and renowned public houses.

Chipping Sodbury also hosts a twice-yearly Mop Fair. Mop Fairs have been a tradition of English towns for hundreds of years. A farmers market is also held twice a month, on the second and fourth Saturdays.

Returning to the property, one cannot help but be impressed as you drive up the long private drive to the pillared portico building, which sits effortlessly in its surroundings. Rockwood House, formerly a country estate, is a Listed 18th century building, which once stood in 41 acres. Former owners include wine merchants and quarrying families including the High Sheriff of Bristol. Walking into the imposing communal entrance hall simply enhances the appeal of the building. The entrance is spacious, welcoming and the sweeping staircase with wrought iron spindles is a delight, as is the glass cupola dome located over the stairwell, flooding the area full of natural light.

Once in the apartment the period of the building is evident from the large sash windows, which allows for a wonderful overview of the garden, as well as the high ceilings found throughout. Accommodation includes a large and spacious living room, two double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, a four-piece bathroom which includes a freestanding, roll top bath.

Final rooms completing the accommodation include a separate cloakroom and kitchen, which offers an array of fitted units and integral appliances.

Outside, the property includes a single en bloc garage, unallocated parking to the front of the building and use of the communal garden which cannot help but be used and enjoyed.
