A wood burning stove creates a lovely focal point to the room and double doors open to a delightful patio area, ideal for alfresco dining. Sliding doors open to a good sized dining room with further wonderful views towards Woodchester Valley Vineyard and on a clear day, as far as the Welsh hills. The dining room offers a perfect space for family celebrations and meals together. The L shaped kitchen is fitted with cream units creating lovely clean lines and a bright and contemporary vibe. A home office is positioned to the front of the house and a large utility leads off the kitchen, with access to the double garage plus lower level garden store.

The location of Tracy House is exceptional. The house is situated in an elevated position along a private no-through road, offering a haven of peace and tranquility. Houndscroft is an idyllic Hamlet close to the villages of Amberley and Rodborough and within minutes of hundreds of acres of National Trust Commonland, making it ideal for long country walks, cycling and equestrian activities.

The Old Lodge and The Bear Inn, are both within walking distance of Tracy House and nearby Stroud has several leading supermarkets, including Waitrose. One of the key draws to the area is the excellent choice of schools in both the state and private sector. There are several sought after grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham and Beaudesert Park in the private sector, is within walking distance of the property.
