Sun Rising offers an immaculate fusion of eco efficiency alongside practical family living. With an EPC rating of A and nearly 3,500 sq ft of accommodation, the home offers spacious rooms coupled with comfort and low heating costs.
A covered porch runs along the front aspect, providing protection from the elements, both in the wetter months as well as from the sun. Accessed via a useful draught lobby to ensure heat retention, the house opens into a spacious reception hall, giving an instant feeling of light and space, which is carried throughout the remainder of the home. A large boot room with ample space for coats and country paraphernalia leads off the reception hall, together with a cloakroom plus shower. A large studio is also located at this level, ideal as a workshop/gym/yoga studio/music room, with direct access to the garden and a kitchenette. A family room is also located at ground level, which would work equally well as a fifth bedroom or for multi-generational living.
The main living space is located on the first floor and comprises a superb open-plan kitchen/dining/living area, offering the perfect space to cook up a feast whilst chatting with family and friends. Large glass doors open to a superb south facing terrace, ideal for alfresco entertaining in the warmer months. For the colder months, a wood burning stove provides a lovely focal point to the living area. The kitchen is minimalist in style with white units, clean lines and optimised design providing an efficient workspace with ample storage. Large glass doors blend the indoors with the magnificent far reaching views. A good sized utility leads off the kitchen, with access to a rear terrace and the garden. A home office which would work equally well as a fourth bedroom, together with a cloakroom, are also located at this level.
The second floor is accessed via an ash staircase leading to a large landing area with minstrels gallery, creating an opulent sense of space. Three double bedrooms are located at this level, the principal with walk-in dressing room, spacious en-suite and south-facing balcony. A family bathroom services the other two bedrooms.
The garden stretches to circa 0.3 acres and comprises an enclosed lawn to the front of the house and gently sloping lawns to the rear, with cottage garden and yew and hornbeam hedging. Handsome Corsican pine trees frame the southerly facing view to the front of the property. A large garage provides parking for two cars with additional secure storage space and direct access into the house. There is additional parking for four cars on the drive.
The location of Sun Rising is one of its main assets. Backing onto open fields and with far reaching views across the valley to Minchinhampton Common, the home offers the best of all worlds. A rural haven of tranquility, yet still within a five minute drive from Stroud. The market town of Stroud offers a host of amenities, with several leading supermarkets, including Waitrose, as well as an award winning Saturday Farmers Market. Cheltenham and Cirencester are both within easy reach, offering extensive shopping, theatre and sporting venues, including Cheltenham's National Hunt racecourse. One of the key draws to the area is the excellent choice of schools. Thrupp itself has a popular village primary school and there are sought after grammar schools in nearby Stroud, as well as in Gloucester and Cheltenham. There is also a good selection of schools in the private sector with Beaudesert Park in Minchinhampton, just a five minute drive away and Wycliffe in Stonehouse, as well as several popular schools in Cheltenham. Transport links are excellent with trains into London Paddington (circa 90 minutes) from Stroud mainline station. Both the M5 and M4 motorways are easily accessible.
The property is most easily found by leaving Stroud in the direction of Cirencester. Continue through the traffic lights and pass the turning to Thrupp on your left. After approximately 3/4 mile, turn left into Brewery Lane and follow the lane to the T junction; bear left and the entrance to Sun Rising can be found almost immediately on the right. Pass through the pillared entrance and Sun Rising is the first house on the left hand side.
