Cheltenham, Gloucester and Swindon are also within easy daily commuting distance. Communications are excellent. Junction 16 of the M5 is 3 miles drive. Bristol Parkway station is 6 miles, from which there is a direct fast rail services to London Paddington taking 1 hour 17 minutes and the Severn Crossing is just 3.7 miles. Bristol International Airport is 20 miles.

Accommodation

Ground Floor

When entering the property you are greeted by a good 24ft drawing room which is part of the original home and still retains the original inglenook stone fireplace, now with inset wood burner and beamed ceilings. The room opens to a good sized boot room to the side and steps down into the vast extension which transforms the property into a huge open plan living space/kitchen (43ft across) flooded with light with bi-folding doors opening to the grounds directly beyond and enjoying the unbelievable views. The kitchen area is very well equipped with contemporary fittings, appliances and an impressive island unit. The large gallery landing overlooks the space from above and adds to the sociable aspects of the space. The room flows into the left hand wing of the property where there are two more reception rooms and an en-suite guest bedroom.

First Floor

Stairs lead up from the open plan living area to the aforementioned large gallery landing, which in turn provides access to a useful first floor laundry room with double butler sink and two large en-suite bedrooms, the master bedroom with a sizable dressing room and picture window to the rear with the outstanding views.

Second Floor

The final two en-suite bedrooms will be found on the second floor.

Grounds and Outbuildings

The grounds command the most magnificent views from the hill top location across the adjoining farm land to the parkland and arboretum of Tockington Manor School and the sweeping Severn bridge. Beyond this the Welsh Hills provide the perfect backdrop to the silhouetted Scots pines highlighted especially at sunset. On a clear day North Devon is visible to the south west. The grounds flow perfectly into a large paddock directly behind which has been left as a wildflower meadow and abut the vast open countryside beyond. A large sun terrace directly outside the back of the house stretches across the rear of the property and provides access to the outdoor heated and covered swimming pool & large neighbouring hot tub, which use solar power to heat them (with a gas boiler as back up) via the adjoining plant room. The plant room additionally features a power shower. The stable block currently has several uses, with a glass walled office commanding spectacular views, a garden store and stable. A gardeners WC is included in the outbuildings. This block was designed with the potential to be converted and is on mains utilities. The gardens feature several specimen trees.

A garage with double car port and paved and gravelled driveway provide many parking opportunities.
