Churchend Farmhouse is a most attractive Georgian, Grade II Listed residence situated in a lovely semi-rural village setting, ideal for access to Gloucester and Bristol. This fascinating home incorporates various architectural styles and offers both the opportunity for a substantial family home or, as is currently the case, a successful B&B. Believed to date back to the 18th century, many features remain including exposed beams, fireplaces, bay windows and so much more. Situated in part walled level gardens the property offers adaptable family accommodation arranged over three floors. The fabulous entrance hall gives a taste of what is to come with traditional tiled floors leading to the sitting room, snug, dining room and as you would expect, a good-size farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room with wood-burning stove and a range of fitted appliances. The family room located to the side of the kitchen, easily doubles up as a ground floor bedroom with en-suite facilities. A boot room at the rear of the house provides access to the gardens, garage, outbuildings and parking area with parking for several vehicles.
The grand staircase leads to the first floor where there are four bedrooms (two with en-suites), family bathroom and dressing room/interconnecting room. Each room offers its own unique style and feeling, some with bay windows and feature fireplaces, and others with pretty window seats. On the second floor there are a total of three bedrooms, exposed beams and a full bathroom suite.
The village of Slimbridge sits on predominantly level lands to the south-west of Stroud within the Severn Vale. The nearby area is popular for country walks including the tow-path meandering along the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal. Attractions locally include the Wildfowl and Wetlands trust, founded by Sir Peter Scott, Berkeley Castle, and Cattle Country Adventure Park. The nearby village of Cam offers a range of day to day facilities including supermarket, doctors, dentists and café whilst the market town of Dursley (approximately 4 miles away) has a more extensive range of schools including a secondary school, numerous supermarkets and independent shops together with extensive eating and leisure facilities. The popular ‘Stinchcombe Hill’ golf course spans the hilltops above the town, also a popular area for equine enthusiasts.
The property is ideally located for the M5/M4 corridor and the A38 with Cam railway station just a couple of miles away offering regular access to Gloucester, Cheltenham and Bristol. The towns of Stroud and Stonehouse are the nearest stations for direct access to London Paddington.
From Stroud, take the A419 Caincross Road west out of Stroud and at the roundabout take the 1st left, go straight over the roundabout by Sainsbury's, then the 2nd exit on the next roundabout onto the bypass. At the end of the bypass, bear left onto the Bristol Road and continue on towards the motorway (M5) going straight over this and then turning left onto the A38. Follow this road for approximately 3.5 miles turning right at the roundabout to Slimbridge into St John's Road and the property can be found on the right hand side. Take the driveway just before Granary Cottage and follow this round to the parking at the rear of Churchend Farm.
The property is currently registered as part commercial and part residential and if required for a residential home, will require change of use. Please ask for further information.
