DIRECTIONS
From our Stroud office, follow signs to the M5 Motorway. Cross over the Motorway and turn left on the A38 towards Bristol. After a short distance turn right to Frampton on Severn, passing the village green on your left and continuing straight, over the canal bridge. Bear right after the canal bridge, passing through the village of Saul. As you leave the village and the road opens out, you will cross a hump back bridge where you will then take a left turn after The Ship Inn, signposted to St Peter's Church. Lock House will be found a short distance along the lane, on the right hand side.

LOCATION
The magical waterside setting of Lock House is one of its key attributes, offering a truly unique and special setting. Tucked away along a quiet no-through road, the home offers an oasis of peace with the river on one side of the house and the canal on the other. Part of the parish of Fretherne with Saul, the village of Framilode offers a haven of rural tranquilty. Warm coloured red brick homes line the country lanes with open countryside stretching as far as the eye can see. Both the village church and canal-side pub are within a short walk from Lock House, together with wonderful walks along the Severn Way, right on the doorstep. The neighbouring village of Frampton on Severn is a short drive away with its wonderful village green, reputed to be the longest in England and host to regular cricket matches. Frampton also benefits from a village store with post office, primary school, two public houses and a lovely tea shop.

The A38 and M5 motorway are within two to three miles and provide easy access to the surrounding centres of Gloucester, Cheltenham, The Midlands, Bristol and Bath. Mainline railway stations at Stonehouse and Stroud bring London within 90 minutes travelling time. Motorway M5 J12 Stonehouse - 4 miles, Gloucester Railway Station - 9.5 miles, Stonehouse Railway Station - 7 miles, Cheltenham - 17 miles, Bristol Temple Meads - 31 miles, Bristol Airport - 40 miles. Distances are approximate.

DESCRIPTION
A unique opportunity to acquire a magnificent family home in an idyllic location with over 150ft of private river frontage . Built in 1776, the Grade II listed home is steeped in historic interest. As soon as you sweep through the gates and set eyes on the handsome red brick facade, you know this is a rare find. The soft pink hue of the aged brick, so typical of the area, creates an instantly warm and welcoming vibe. A porch provides useful cover over the front entrance, which opens to a charming and spacious reception hall with stunning aged flagstone floor. The main drawing room spans the depth of the house with a pretty door opening to the rear garden, ideal for alfresco entertaining. An open-fire provides a warming focal point for the colder months. A second reception, ideal as a snug or family room, leads open-plan into the kitchen. The family room creates an ideal entertaining space for friends and family to gather whilst cooking up a feast. The kitchen is a bright and homely room with blue shaker-style units offering plentiful storage and room for a dining table. A black Alpha Range cooker creates a focal point and a separate utility is ideal for keeping laundry out of sight. A cloakroom is located off the utility. A good sized home office overlooks the rear garden. A handsome staircase leads to the upper floors where four spacious bedrooms are located. All the rooms have been thoughtfully laid out to provide both comfort and ample storage and the principal bedroom benefits from a good sized en-suite bathroom, whilst the other three bedrooms all have en-suite shower rooms. All of the bedrooms benefit from wonderful views over the garden, the River Severn and the village.

Totalling circa one acre, the garden is beautifully landscaped with a plethora of well-stocked borders, mature trees and topiary. A path leads to the swimming pool and to the river frontage and a Breeze House offers an idyllic spot to relax with a drink and soak up the riverside charm or a front row view of the famous Severn Bore. A greenhouse with power is located to the side of the property, together with a double garage and ample driveway parking.
