Welcome to Dry Ground Farm, a home surrounded by 26.3 acres of Gloucestershire countryside with a 360 degree panoramic view of the Cotswolds, offered for sale with no onward chain and located within a highly desirable postcode. Furthermore, the property benefits from an array of outbuildings, including a large Dutch barn that subject to obtaining planning permission could become a four/five-bedroom family home, allowing the current bungalow to become ancillary accommodation
Postlip is a small hamlet located at the foot of Cleeve Hill and so sits between the Regency town of Cheltenham and the market town of Winchcombe, with some saying that you could not ask for a better positioned property! Whilst Winchcombe may only be a market town, it is simply thriving and offers an array of local shops, a supermarket, schooling, and wonderful restaurants for those evenings where one just does not want to cook. In contrast, the larger town of Cheltenham has the main High Street, the Promenade, the cosmopolitan area that is Montpellier, plus of course is home to the Cheltenham Gold Cup, held at Prestbury Park.
Firstly, there is the property, a two-bedroom bungalow that sits central to the circa 26 acres yet benefits from mature gardens that encompass the home. Believed to originally have been a three bedroom home, the current owners have changed the accommodation so now offering: Entrance hall, living room with open fireplace and French doors allowing one to enjoy the sensational view from the raised terrace. From the living room, a further set of French doors leading into the adjoining dining room.
The two bedroom are both a good size with the larger of the bedrooms benefiting from fitted bedroom furniture. The final rooms include the utility, shower room and kitchen, with the two latter rooms having recently undergone an upgrade and are simply stunning
The kitchen is from Abbey Kitchens located in Winchcombe and is clean lined and benefits from a wealth of integrated appliances to include the dishwasher, free standing range cooker and extractor fan over whilst the Belfast sink simply completes the room
Moving outside, the property benefits from a number of outbuildings as one would expect, which include a three-block stable, ideal for those seeking to use the property for equestrian purposes. There is also the old diary house which works well for further storage or as a single garage.
The previous owner also ran a highly successful licensed kennels at the property which closed upon retirement and although the business is no longer, the kennels are and comprise of twelve individual bays, each having independent access to the secure exercise enclosure, which is located to the side of the main kennel block
The final building is the Dutch barn, which is in our opinion the jewel in the crown, particularly if one could obtain planning permission to turn into the properties main dwelling. Measuring 17m x 13.1 in the main, this gives over 2400 square feet of internal space and as such would comfortably house a four/five bedroom home which would then enjoy one of the most stunning vistas.
Moving onto the paddocks which are complete private and have no public footpaths running across the land, this is all laid to grass, which has been grazed by sheep or horses in the past or simply left to take a topping of hay.
The property due to its position benefits from easy and quick access onto Cleeve Hill and the surrounding Cotswold countryside and due to the positioning of the land, also benefits from two further access points onto the highway, in addition to the main driveway which leads to the home.
