A rare opportunity to secure a charming Cotswold stone property in an elevated setting and affording truly fantastic views across pastures to the Severn estuary, the Malvern Hills and beyond. At the heart of the Cotswold AONB and nestled under protected broad-leaved woodlands within only a few strides of the Cotswold Way National Trail, the property is enviably situated.
Thought to date from the early 1800s, the original house has been cleverly extended and improved by our clients and now offers two income-generating opportunities (subject to consents). In the principal house, the ground floor is comprised of a generously proportioned sitting room with Inglenook fireplaces at either end, a gorgeous oak-framed garden room that optimises the views available from the house and a kitchen/breakfast room complete with 4-oven AGA. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, two of which offer en suite facilities with a family bathroom and ground floor cloakroom completing the accommodation.
With both internal and independent access, the adjoining annexe is fully self contained with a fitted kitchen, dining room, family room with wood burning stove and picture windows on the ground floor and two bedroom suites on the first floor both of which offer superb far-reaching views. Across the driveway, the detached garage block has room for two cars in addition to a self-contained apartment comprised of an entrance hall, utility room, shower room and kitchen/living/bedroom.
Harescombe is a rural hamlet situated on the Cotswold escarpment midway between the villages of Haresfield and Edge. The community has a village hall and church with public houses being available nearby in Edge, Haresfield and Brookthorpe. There is a primary school in Haresfield with alternative primary schools in Painswick and Randwick whilst the Wynstones Steiner Waldorf School is nearby in Whaddon. Secondary schools (including grammar schools) are available in Gloucester, Cheltenham and Stroud. Recreational opportunities include golf and skiing at Matson, football in Hardwicke and fishing in Harescombe.
Harescombe is approximately 4, 6 and 13 miles from Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham respectively. The M5 (3 miles) offers easy commuting to Bristol, Bath, Cheltenham and the Midlands whilst Stonehouse Station (6 miles) offers trains to London (approx. 1h40m).
The main gardens are to the rear and benefit from the fantastic far reaching views across the Severn Vale. To the front there is ample room to park several vehicles in addition to the two bay garage.
