Vineyard View occupies an elevated position on the edge of this popular Cotswold village. Approached by a little lane that terminates shortly thereafter in open countryside, there are panoramic views towards Minchinhampton Common, on the horizon. Constructed out of traditional Cotswold Stone, this spacious detached home has been thoughtfully planned with space in mind and wrap around gardens including a fabulous al-fresco dining terrace directly off the kitchen. As illustrated on the floor plan, the ground floor is accessed via a boot room, leading to the main hallway with access to the sitting room with wood burning stove and 32ft kitchen/dining/family room with central island and a range of built in units including a dishwasher, wine fridge and double oven/microwave. A utility room and cloakroom are also located up on this level together with access to the side terrace. A few stairs up lead to a small landing with stable door offering access to the rear garden. The master bedroom with en-suite shower room and walk in wardrobe is located on the first floor together with two further double bedrooms and the family bathroom. A large attic style bedroom/sitting room spans from front to back on the second floor together with an additional bathroom.
Gated off street parking for several vehicles is available to the side of the house. Lovely wrap around gardens encompass lawns with well stocked borders, entertaining spaces and a traditionally built brick storage area.
The property is most easily found by leaving Stroud in the Nailsworth direction on the A46. Pass the Old Fleece public house on your left and take the second right signposted to South Woodchester. At the subsequent T-Junction by the War Memorial, turn left and immediately after passing The Ram Inn, turn right up into Lagger Lane. Follow this round a right hand bend and the entrance to Vineyard View can be found on the left hand side.
The adjacent villages of South and North Woodchester are situated in the south-west of the Cotswolds almost midway between Bristol and Cheltenham/Gloucester. Both have many attractive period buildings and share facilities with 2 pubs, a general store/post office and popular primary school. The surroundings are spectacular with on one side Minchinhampton Common (over 650 acres free for anyone to enjoy), the other Woodchester Valley, a glorious source of walks on public footpaths, in timeless countryside. The local towns are Nailsworth (excellent range of independent retailers) and Stroud which is the administrative centre for the region. The latter has a mainline station (London Paddington from just over 90 minutes), 3 major supermarkets, a famous Farmers' Market, theatre, cinema and boys' and girls' grammar schools. Local amenities include a cycle track between Nailsworth and Stroud, 3 challenging golf courses at Minchinhampton, opportunities to ride (local livery stables) and to visit the village's own boutique Vineyard - Woodchester Valley Wines.
