Pinnolds offers a unique opportunity to purchase a substantial family home with 12 acres of land and approved planning for a further dwelling on the site of the existing annexe. The property has been a much loved family home to the current vendors who sympathetically extended the original 17th Century cottage when they purchased it over 20 years ago. A large reception hall with aged beams and magnificent original fireplace with wood burner inset, sets the tone for this fabulous house. The dining room leads off the reception hall with a truly stunning, ornate stone fireplace and offers an ideal room for gathering with family and friends. Thick walls, beamed ceiling and mullion windows, make this a welcoming entertaining space. The kitchen is set to the rear of the property, together with a separate breakfast room and fabulous walk-in larder. A centre island provides seating for 6 - a great place for chatting with friends, whilst prepping for a BBQ pool party. A vaulted ceiling gives a tremendous sense of light and space to the kitchen which overlooks the garden and swimming pool. A rear hall leads to a large games room, shower room and cloakroom, with easy access to and from the pool. The sitting room runs the depth of the house and is a lovely light-filled room, an ideal space to relax and unwind in front of the cosy wood burning stove or a fabulous space for entertaining.
The six principal bedrooms are on the first floor plus a seventh attic bedroom, which would also make an ideal children's playroom or home office. The 3 front facing bedrooms lead off a spacious landing area giving a wonderful sense of opulence and space. Two of these rooms are en-suite and all have lovely views of the paddock and the hills beyond. A rear hallway gives access to a family bathroom and two further large double rooms to the rear of the property.
The grounds are a stunning feature of the property and run to circa 12 acres with swimming pool, boiler room, triple garage and triple carport, ample hard standing for cars, well established trees and a stunning vine growing up the wall of the house, as well as an ornate well.
The current two bed annexe with kitchen, living room and bathroom, has planning granted via Stroud District Council (S.21/1848/FUL) to build a 4 bed dwelling (see CGI image over page).
Brookthorpe is conveniently located almost equi-distant between Stroud and Gloucester, close to Painswick. The village is set below the Cotswold escarpment which forms an attractive backdrop. Brookthorpe has grown substantially in recent years, largely due to its convenient location, popular with young families keen to access the many excellent schools within the area. Gloucester offers a wide choice of secondary schools and sought after grammar schools for both boys and girls and there are also excellent grammar schools in Stroud. The village has regular bus services to both Stroud and Gloucester. There is easy access to the motorway network - junction 12 of the M5 and trains into London Paddington from nearby Stroud Station are scheduled from 90 minutes. There are numerous large supermarkets in both Stroud and Gloucester including a Waitrose in Stroud. The countryside around Brookthorpe offers a great choice of walks on a network of public footpaths and the local lanes are popular with cyclists. Nearby Painswick has a challenging 18 hole golf course and there is Premier Division rugby at Gloucester and England's longest dry ski slope at Robinswood Hill.
From our Stroud Office, proceed north on the A46 and branch left at Pitchcombe onto the A4173 for Gloucester. Pass through the village of Edge and head down the hill towards Gloucester. At the first mini roundabout, turn right along Upton Lane and after circa 0.5 miles on the first sharp right hand bend, you will find the access to Pinnolds on your left. Proceed through the metal seven bar gate and follow the long drive, where you will find ample parking to the front of Pinnolds.
