About this property

TENURE: Freehold

Situated at the end of a narrow rural lane, this truly delightful detached Cotswold stone cottage occupies an elevated plot extending to around 0.86 of an acre with views across fields and charm in abundance. The property was extensively modernised and extended around 25 years ago and has been well-maintained since by our clients but still has plenty of potential for further extensions or alterations to enable a new owner to tailor the accommodation to suit their own needs (subject to permissions).

Internally, the principal living area is a spacious split-level room with the upper level having an exposed stone fireplace with oak bresummer beam that houses a wood-burning stove, exposed ceiling beams and built-in book and storage units whilst the lower part has French doors opening onto a paved terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of oak units topped by granite work surfaces with a 2-oven AGA and ample room for a breakfast table and chairs whilst the adjoining dining room also has French doors opening onto a terrace sheltered by a timber pergola covered with climbing shrubs.

On the first floor the master bedroom has the use of a modern en suite shower room whilst the two further bedrooms share the family bathroom. A ground floor utility room and cloakroom complete the accommodation.

The Scrubs is a truly rural hamlet at the heart of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the parish of Bisley with Lypiatt. Situated at the end of a lane and with only one close neighbour and midway between Bisley, Slad and Sheepscombe, the house is surrounded by rolling green countryside with walks and riding from the doorstep. The closest facilities are in Bisley where there is a parish church, general shop/Post Office, two public houses, a pre-school playgroup and primary school. The surrounding towns provide a good range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes and budgets. Education options in the local area are strong in both the private and state sectors with independent schools including Kings School, Wycliffe College, Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College and Dean Close whilst there are Grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham.

The Scrubs is conveniently located approximately 5 miles from Stroud, and 12 miles from Cheltenham, Gloucester and Cirencester. The A417 provides access to both the M4 and M5 Motorways serving Bath, Bristol and the Midlands.

The gardens surround the house and are a particularly delightful attraction. There are gently sloping lawns to the rear leading into mature woodlands with cottage gardens to the front and sides offering several lawned areas linked by paths with box hedging, mature shrub borders, climbing roses and clematis all enclosed by mature hedge boundaries. A detached garage and ample parking are situated to the side of the house.
