This property has been extended and completely renovated by the current owners and offers high specification fixtures and fittings, plus it is beautifully presented throughout. The extension has been sympathetically executed to ensure it complements the existing house and reflect the Cotswold style. The result is a fabulous layout that flows well and provides over 3000 sq. ft. of space.
Arranged over two floors the accommodation comprises a light entrance hallway, with Porcelanosa wood effect tiling to the floor, giving access to a formal reception room, study, kitchen/dining/family room, cloakroom and utility. A Neville Johnson oak and glazed staircase leads to the first floor. A notable feature of the reception room is a Chesney gas fire in a Cotswold stone fire place and the study has a range of bespoke Neville Johnstone fitted units and desk.
Double doors lead to the stunning 30ft open plan kitchen/dining/family room, tiled throughout with Porcelanosa high gloss limestone flooring benefiting from underfloor heating. This room offers flexible, modern living and is bathed in light courtesy of the glazed element of the kitchen area and the bi-folding doors to the terrace and garden beyond. The kitchen features a range of wall and base cabinets under a Silestone counter top and an L shaped island unit. Integrated Miele appliances include a single oven, grill/oven, microwave oven, warming oven, coffee machine, fridge/freezer, wine fridge and gas hob. Off this room is a sitting room with a conservatory extension giving access to the terrace.
Off the hallway is a handy utility with hi-gloss units under a stone counter top with space and plumbing for a washing machine and fridge. The tiled flooring here continues through to the generous rear entrance lobby with a unit matching the utility containing the water pump and softener.
The sizable dual aspect master suite has commanding views over the common and beyond. The magnificent en suite features Porcelanosa tiles and sanity ware with luxurious walk in shower all served by underfloor heating. There are three further double bedrooms, one with built in wardrobes and one with a walk through wardrobe. To complete the first floor accommodation is a family bathroom with underfloor heating finish to the same exacting standard and finish as the rest of the house.
The detached double garage has an electronic up and over door with a good sized workshop to the rear. An internal staircase leads to a sizable room above, currently used as gym, but would also make a great office space.
The Grounds and Gardens
The property is approached via a private road, The Hithe, off the common. The house is set back from the road, screened by substantial landscaping and trees and accessed by a gravel drive leading to the paviour area by the property and garage. The formal garden area is screened by mature planting along the drive and boundaries, whilst ensuring there are unobstructed views over the surrounding Rodborough Common. A terrace with dwarf wall wraps around the house and steps lead down to the lawn, edged with borders featuring box hedging.

Access to the M5 motorway is available from J11a and J13 and there is also easy access to the M4 junction 18 for Bath and Bristol. Long distance commuters will appreciate the proximity of London (Paddington) train services at both Kemble & Stroud.
