Highclere offers a pretty 2 bed cottage. Tucked away in a magical location, the former coach house offers practical living alongside cosy Cotswold charm. A covered porch opens to a good sized reception hall, handy for muddy boots and coats after a walk on the common. The home has an instantly bright and welcoming vibe, opening to a good sized sitting room. A woodburning stove provides a lovely focal point to the room, ideal for cosy evenings by the fire. Doors open from the sitting room to a super south facing patio area, a lovely spot for a morning coffee or alfresco entertaining. The kitchen is set to the rear of the home and stylish red Miele units with integral appliances, create a chic whilst functional space, ideal for cooking up a feast. A door leads from the kitchen to the side parking area and a useful log store. A cloakroom and storage cupboards are located off the kitchen. The dual aspect dining room is front facing and a good sized room which would work equally well as a bedroom. The principal bedroom overlooks the garden to the side of the house and is a bright room with spacious en-suite. Upstairs, a charming loft room with en-suite shower and WC is currently used as a bedroom. A further loft area, currently used for storage, has the potential to create further living space. Highclere's garden is an absolute delight. Well-stocked borders and a gently sloping lawn create a magical enclosed haven. With several patio areas, there is no shortage of idyllic spots to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings or to entertain alfresco. A gravel driveway with two separate entrances provides ample parking and there are several sheds.
Highclere is most easily found by leaving our Minchinhampton office via West End into Windmill Road and out onto the common. Turn right and immediately left heading towards Stroud. Carry on past the Bear Inn and shortly after take the left hand fork towards Rodborough. After a few hundred yards you will find a walled entrance to Over Butterow on the right hand side. Turn into Over Butterow, take the second left and the driveway to Highclere can be found shortly after on the right hand side.
Highclere's location is one of its key attributes. Tucked away along a private road off Rodborough Common, the house is one of ten individual and exclusive homes set around a pretty communal green. This is a home offering the best of both worlds, set in a wonderfully peaceful location but still with a welcoming community on the doorstep. Within minutes of Rodborough Common, offering 100s of acres of National Trust commonland, the location is ideal for country walks or a short walk across the common to the Cotswold's award winning ice cream factory, Winstones ice cream. The market towns of Stroud, Minchinhampton, Nailsworth and Cirencester are all nearby, offering an abundance of independent retailers, restaurants and pubs as well as local shops. The Bear Inn is within walking distance of the property. Nearby Stroud has several major supermarkets, as well as a cinema and award winning Farmers Market. One of the key draws to the area is the excellent choice of schools in both the state and private sector. Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham all have sought after grammar schools and in the private sector, Beaudesert Park school is only a short walk away, across the common. London is circa 2 hours by road or 90 minutes from Stroud mainline station and the M5 is also easily accessible (circa 15 minutes drive from Over Butterow).
