The property occupies an elevated setting in Brimscombe, a small village on the outskirts of Stroud town centre. Local day-to-day amenities can be found within Brimscombe, including village inn, shop and primary school. The A419 travels along the Brimscombe Valley and connects Stroud & Cirencester, each town offering a wide selection of shops, educational and recreational facilities. Above Brimscombe lies some 600 acres of commonland vested in the National Trust and known as Minchinhampton Common. A direct line to London Paddington runs from nearby Kemble and Stroud railway stations.
At the front there is an enclosed mature garden mainly laid to lawn flanked by flower borders and bounded hedging & Cotswold stone walling. The gated driveway provides access to the former garage, now used as an artist studio with store.
Steps down from the kitchen lead to the enclosed rear garden which benefits from a further lawn area & paved patio. A useful cellar/workshop is positioned beneath the house whilst the former garage has been converted into an artist’s studio with store.
