Hawthorns offers a unique opportunity to renovate a truly historic Queen Anne home, together with 2/3 annexes, in a fabulous location. Filled with magnificent period features, this substantial family home is just waiting for the next chapter in its rich history, to be written. Gated access leads off a quiet country lane, with steps down to the main entrance. Opening into a reception hall, the kitchen/breakfast room leads off one side of the reception hall and the dining room to the other. Both rooms are front facing and filled with light and the dining room has a stunning flagstone floor and large feature fireplace. Two further reception rooms are positioned to the rear of the house, together with a conservatory; all of these rooms offer breath-taking views over the Stroud Valley. Trough Cottage (annexe 1) is adjoined to the main house via a rear inner hall, logically lending itself to be combined into the main house, providing a further reception room plus utility/back kitchen and an additional bedroom/bathroom/dressing room on the first floor (subject to the necessary planning consent). Four first floor bedrooms lead off the dining room (2 en-suite) together with a family bathroom with a further 2/3 bedrooms on the second floor, or alternatively a library/home office. The garden is set to the rear of the property and offers extraordinarily stunning views across the Stroud Valley. Gently sloping, the garden stretches as far as the eye can see, with mature trees and a useful outbuilding. Three garages sit roadside to the front of the house.
Two further one bed annexes offer the potential to generate an income or provide an ideal set-up for multi-generational living.
From our Minchinhampton Office proceed to the Market Place, leading into Butt Street and on reaching the main A419, turn left towards Stroud. Continue across the Common and as the road descends on the far side, take the first left, immediately after The Bear Hotel and then immediately left again back along the side of the valley. After circa one mile, Hawthorns will be found on the right.
Hawthorns' location is utterly magical. A haven of rural tranquility, Lower Littleworth sits on the fringes of the sought after village of Amberley. The property is located adjacent to Minchinhampton Common, providing immediate access to hundreds of acres of National Trust common land, yet still within easy reach of numerous local amenities. The thriving market town of Nailsworth is within 5 minutes drive, offering a wide range of independent retailers including the popular delicatessen and restaurant, William's Kitchen, together with numerous other cafes and shops. Stroud is also within 10 minutes drive of Hawthorns and similarly offers a host of amenities, including an award winning Saturday Farmers' Market and a major Waitrose store, together with several other leading supermarkets. Communication links are excellent, with trains to London Paddington from Stroud mainline station (circa 90 mins) and Kemble mainline station also within 20 minutes drive. The M4 and M5 motorways are also easily accessible. A competitive choice of sought after schools is also a key draw to the area, with Beaudesert Park School located within five minutes drive, together with numerous leading schools in Cheltenham and nearby Westonbirt. There is also a selection of sought after grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham.
