Surrounded by National Trust land, The Lodge offers a unique home in a truly fabulous location, with tremendous views over Rodborough Common.
The front door opens into a good sized reception hall with kitchen directly ahead and to the rear of the property. With fitted cream coloured units and a Rangemaster oven, the kitchen has a row of three pretty windows, from which to enjoy the far reaching views of the tree lined valley below.
Leading off the main hall are two front facing bedrooms, both with views to Rodborough Common, one with 3 feature arched windows. There is a third smaller bedroom facing to the side of the Lodge. All of the bedrooms have ample built in storage. There is also a good sized bathroom with bath and sink plus separate cloakroom with WC.
There is a pretty dining room at this level, again with windows facing onto the common, the perfect space for entertaining, plus a good sized sitting room. The sitting room has a fireplace offering a focal point to the room, fitted with gas fire and lovely sash windows offering views over the garden and the valley below.
Stairs lead off the kitchen to the lower level, where there is a fabulous light filled reception room with a lovely contemporary vibe; this spacious room has glass doors that open to the garden and the driveway. Leading off the reception room is a fourth bedroom, a good sized double with en-suite bath plus shower. There is also a really useful cellar area, offering ample storage.
The well stocked garden is to the rear of the property, with gated paved driveway, offering parking for several cars plus a seating area and a garden shed and outside WC.
From our Minchinhampton office, head along West End towards Minchinhampton Common. Turn right and then directly left at Tom Long's Post, heading in the direction of Stroud. After approximately half a mile, you will see a left hand turning to Amberley and almost immediately, the driveway to The Lodge. Continue over the cattle grid and the five bar entrance gate to The Lodge will be found on your right hand side.
The Lodge is located in an enviable position on the edge of Rodborough Common, a wonderful expanse which together with the neighbouring Minchinhampton Common, makes up over 600 acres of National Trust land. With wonderful walks literally on your doorstep, Minchinhampton Common is also home to a popular golf course.
The market towns of Stroud, Nailsworth and Minchinhampton, are all close by, offering a great choice of amenities and several major supermarkets in nearby Stroud. Minchinhampton is a hearty walk across the common with several cafes and a popular pub, as well as doctor and dental surgeries and local stores.
Excellent schools are a key draw to the area, with several sought after grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham as well as popular primary schools in both Amberley and Minchinhampton, both walking distance across the common. There is also a good choice of schools in the private sector, including Beaudesert Park, just a short walk from the Lodge.
The Lodge is circa 2 hours drive from London or 90 minutes by train from nearby Stroud Station and all the main towns and cities of the region are within commuting distance with easy access to the M5 motorway.
