This excellent family home is currently set up as an 'upside-down' house with five bedrooms and a family shower room located on the ground floor accessed via a generous entrance hall. Four of the bedrooms are doubles with the fifth being a single.
On the first floor the galleried landing is filled with natural light thanks to a feature picture window taking full advantage of the views. The flexible living and entertaining spaces on this level include a wonderful 24 foot triple aspect sitting room with natural stone fireplace, a separate dining room with views from the front of the house, kitchen to the rear, a conservatory beyond with doors leading out to the rear garden, a breakfast/play/games room and home office. There is also a large bathroom.
The house is approached via a private driveway with ample parking and an integral double garage with a large up-and-over door. There is a front garden laid to lawn with flower and shrub boarders. The rear garden is arranged on several levels with both patio and lawned areas with additional potential to create some wonderful flowerbeds and vegetable garden.
Avening is a historic Cotswold village in a pretty valley between the market towns of Tetbury and Minchinhampton, in the south-west of the Cotswolds.
The village has 2 pubs, a popular primary school, a Norman church and a great community spirit. There are genuinely special walks in the vicinity, and the adjacent lanes are very popular with cyclists. Nearby Nailsworth is a thriving country town with an excellent range of independent retailers and a burgeoning culinary reputation, while Tetbury and Minchinhampton are both steeped in history.
London is circa 2 hours by road with regular train services from both Kemble and Stroud stations, with trains scheduled from 75 minutes into London Paddington. Regency Cheltenham and Georgian Bath are almost equidistant. Minchinhampton has three challenging golf courses and the well know Gatcombe horse trials are hosted in the land adjacent to Avening.
The property is most easily found by leaving our Minchinhampton office via Tetbury Street out towards Avening. Travel through Hampton Fields, descending Hampton Hill with Minchinhampton Golf Course on your left hand side. On reaching the village with the Queen Matilda Inn on your left, take the right hand fork into High Street, and No. 23 can be found approximately 500 meters on your left hand side.
