Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

Thought to date back to the early 1700s, this imposing and substantial detached Grade II Listed farmhouse is situated at the head of a private road and occupies an elevated plot and affords far-reaching views across Gloucester and the surrounding countryside. Having been altered at various times over the centuries, the house was sympathetically renovated around 25 years ago and has been meticulously maintained since by our clients.

The principal living accommodation is comprised of a spacious sitting room with an inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove, a dining room and the kitchen/breakfast room that has a traditional Rayburn range in addition to modern appliances integrated in high-gloss units finished with granite work surfaces. Double doors open from the kitchen to a generous timber-framed conservatory overlooking the terraces and well-maintained lawns.

On the first floor, there are two bedrooms and a family bathroom whilst the principal suite has an en suite dressing room and luxurious bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower enclosure. The top floor has a spacious study/landing, two bedrooms and a bathroom that is en suite to both bedrooms. The lower ground floor has been renovated to offer a gym, games room and large pantry/store room whilst a utility room and separate cloakroom on the ground floor complete the accommodation.

Situation
Situated at the foot of Chosen Hill and to the North of the boroughs of Hucclecote and Barnwood, the house sits in an elevated setting surrounded by fields on the Eastern fringe of this historic Cathedral City. Gloucester City centre offers a comprehensive range of shopping, recreational and commercial facilities whilst the revitalised historic docks now offer a delightful waterside setting for restaurants and bars amongst others. The Motorway network allows convenient access to cities such as Cardiff, Bath and Bristol to the South and Birmingham to the North whilst direct trains to London take less than two hours.

Educational facilities in the local area are particularly strong including four grammar schools in the City. Nearby state schools include Hillview and Dinglewell Primary Schools, High School for Girls and Sir Thomas Rich's School whilst independent schools include The King's School, The Edward Jenner School, The Al-Ashraf Secondary School for Girls and the Wynstones Steiner-Waldorf School.

Outside
The house stands in a plot extending to around 1.57 acres with expansive lawns to the side and rear and ample off road parking for several vehicles. An expansive Indian sandstone terrace wraps around the conservatory and overlooks the manicured lawns making it the ideal setting for al fresco entertaining. The swimming pool, which is set down in the lawn, is heated through solar gain with an air source heat pump for back up whilst the hot tub on the terrace has an automated cover for ease of use. A substantial timber building is currently used as a workshop but could also provide excellent garaging facilities whilst a smaller building houses garden machinery. A further 5.28 acres of land surrounding the house is available by separate agreement.

To the rear is a brick built coach house that currently offers office accommodation on the first floor and a games room with adjoining shower room on the ground floor.

Additional Information
The property has mains electricity and water supplies, private drainage and an oil-fired heating and hot water system.
