Tunley Cottage is a beautifully located detached stone cottage, ripe for improvement subject to the necessary planning consents. Currently there are plans lodged with Stroud District Council to knock the existing cottage down and re-site the house into the middle of the plot.
The plans are for a 4 bedroom property but have not yet been approved. Situated in good size mature garden, Tunley Cottage offers fantastic potential for prospective purchasers. The cottage is currently arranged with an entrance hall, cloakroom, two reception rooms and a kitchen on the ground floor, and two bedrooms with a family bathroom on the first floor. There is an attached outhouse/store to one side that could offer potential accommodation if incorporated into the main cottage.
The gardens are a really good size and arranged principally to the front. Although overgrown, they have clearly been landscaped in the past and are full of mature shrubs, trees and plants.
The property is most easily located by leaving Stroud on the Slad Road B4070 in the direction of Slad. Continue through the village of Slad and take the second left at Bulls Cross signposted to Sheepscombe, carrying straight on through Longridge to Jacks Green. Pass the Methodist chapel (being converted) on your right and turn immediately left down into the village onto Church Hill. The parking for the cottage is on the left a short distance down by the garage.
The property occupies a delightful country setting close to bridle paths and woodland walks along with some of the most outstanding countryside surrounding the area, officially recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty. Local amenities within Sheepscombe include a church, chapel, excellent primary school and pub with further amenities available in the village of Painswick, two miles away, where there are churches, a primary school, hotel, restaurants, two public houses and a wide variety of shops, along with a health centre, library, golf course and other recreational facilities. The area is renowned for its high standard of education and the centres of Stroud, Gloucester, Bath, Bristol and Swindon are all easily accessible, as is the Regency Spa town of Cheltenham which offers great shopping, restaurants, theatre and National Hunt racing, especially the festival in March and, by rail there is a connection to Birmingham New Street. Trains from Stroud into London Paddington are scheduled from 95 minutes, and this part of the Cotswolds is in the apex of the M4 and M5 motorways.
