DESCRIPTION
The Old Mill is a fabulous family home in a magical setting in the heart of the pretty hamlet of Harescombe. The original cottage is thought to be over 400 years old, with sympathetic extensions over the years.The home opens into a good-sized boot room, offering the perfect space for muddy boots and country paraphernalia, with the kitchen and home office leading off the boot room. The kitchen is clearly the heart of the home and is a wonderful light-filled room with views overlooking the garden and open countryside. Cream units provide plentiful storage and there is ample room for a table, making this the perfect space to chat with family and friends, whilst cooking up a feast. Underfloor heating runs throughout the spacious kitchen/dining area and a door leads from the kitchen to the garden.

Steps lead up to a snug/second reception room, currently used as a children's playroom and with access to a cellar, providing useful storage. An inner hall with cloakroom off, leads to the L shaped sitting room. A welcoming room with a woodburning stove providing a cosy focal point, the sitting room provides a lovely space to relax with a book, whilst working equally well for entertaining. A good-sized utility room is ideal for hiding laundry away. An exceptional home office with magnificent views as far as the Malvern Hills, provides an idyllic working environment.

Stairs lead from the inner hall to four first floor double bedrooms, two with en-suite and the principal with walk-in dressing room, plus a family bathroom. All of the bedrooms have been thoughtfully laid out with built-in storage cupboards and wonderful views. A good-sized family bathroom is also located on the first floor.

The garden is a real feature of the property, providing sensational relaxing and entertaining space. A large patio overlooking farmland, provides the perfect spot for alfresco entertaining and Daniels Brook runs along the bottom of the garden. Well-stocked borders plus a children's play area to the side of the house, complete the main garden. A strip of land opposite the house, provides additional space, currently laid to orchard. A single garage and gated gravel drive, provide parking for several cars.

DIRECTIONS
The property is located by leaving Stroud on the A46 in the direction of Gloucester and Cheltenham, branching left at the junction signposted Gloucester. Continue through Edge and down the hill, straight over the first roundabout and then turn left at the next roundabout, just after Fagin's Public House, signposted to Haresfield. Follow this road for approximately 1 mile and turn left, signposted to Harescombe. Continue for less than half a mile and at the first fork by the farm, bear left and continue for approximately half a mile; on passing the village hall on your left, turn immediately left and The Old Mill is the first house on the left hand side.

LOCATION
One of The Old Mill's greatest attributes, is its location. Nestled along a quiet country lane in the hamlet of Harescombe, the property overlooks open fields, with a babbling brook at the bottom of the garden and a historic 14th Century church at the end of the lane. The location of this home is akin to stepping back in time, to a rural, tranquil haven, where the main passing traffic is likely to be a herd of cows on their way to the milking parlour. Quiet and peaceful (access is down sunken country lanes with minimal passing traffic), the surprise is to find the cottage is within 20 minutes of Gloucester (schools and mainline railway station) and less than 10 minutes from Junction 12 of the M5 motorway for accessing Bristol and the West Midlands. One of the key draws to the area is the excellent choice of schools, with sought after grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham and also a good choice of schools in the private sector. There are also popular village primary schools in nearby Haresfield and Painswick. Historic Painswick, is 10 minutes drive with good local services and the nearby town of Stroud has excellent facilities including a major Waitrose plus three other supermarkets and a mainline railway station (London Paddington circa 90 minutes). There are lovely walks including the Cotswold Way, opportunities to keep a horse at livery and fishing lakes nearby.
