Hughes Sealey Estate Agents are delighted to welcome you to Randalls Cottage, a beautiful example of a natural stone cottage, located in an idyllic position within the Stroud Valleys that enjoys expansive and uninterrupted views across the country, taking in the Malverns and May Hill, benefiting from a garden totalling 1/3 acre which enjoys complete peace, quiet and privacy.
One cannot help but to take in the view upon arrival, which only gets better as you step through the properties intricate wooden gate and into the garden, that has been so lovingly looked after and enjoyed by the current owner for the last 20 years.
The home, which was once two properties is accessed via one of four doors, two to the front elevation, one from the utility room and one to the side of the home, which is neatly marked 'Front door' to avoid confusion. Stepping through takes you into the main entrance hall and the character of the home becomes evident.
With stripped wooden floors, inset lighting, and windows to your right, which overlook open paddocks, one cannot wait to see what the rest of the home comprises of.
Of the ground floor, there are two reception rooms, both of which are quite different. The first, described as the Snug, enjoys exposed stonework, a log burning fire inset to the imposing stone chimney breast, a panelled ceiling and a window that ensures the room is flooded with natural light.
The second reception room, which the current owner uses as her sitting room is lighter in feel, with softer plastered walls, an open fire with grate inset to the central chimney breast and stripped wooden flooring. Like the room before it, a window ensure the room enjoys plenty of natural light but there is also a timber door which gives access into the garden.
The room is open to the kitchen, which gives it a wonderful sense of space and allows the two rooms to work in perfect harmony.
The kitchen, which is handcrafted is a solid, chunky kitchen, hand painted and is very much in keeping with the period home being advertised for sale. Being of a practical nature, there is plenty of cupboards and space for an undercounter fridge and dishwasher. For cooking, there is a cream Rayburn which sits neatly within the body of the kitchen units.
Returning to the entrance hall and completing the ground floor accommodation is the separate utility room and downstairs cloakroom.
As the property was once two homes, it makes sense that there are two stairwells. The first found off the snug leads to the first double bedroom the property affords which enjoys double aspect windows, ensuring the occupier enjoys a view from wherever they look. Stepping back onto the landing, a second door leads to a shower room, which provides the link into the main body of the home.
Stepping into the larger part of the property, there are two further double bedrooms, both of which are found to the front elevation so enjoy sensational open views. Completing this floor is the properties family bathroom.
Returning to the hallway, stairs continue upward to the fourth and final bedroom which is found in the roof space which spans over the two bedrooms below, so is a wonderful size and full of character.
Outside, the gardens are simply a delight. With a paved terrace outside the door from the kitchen, a decked area to the side of the home, ensuring one can enjoy the views the home affords, a wild garden, full of flowers and fruit trees, a mature vegetable garden and finally there is a stone potting shed and storage area.
Just outside of the garden is parking for two cars, which in 2004 had planning granted for the construction of a garage. Although now lapsed, we see no reason why planning would not be granted again should some wish to reapply.
