  • Bedrooms: 3
A large period house, largely unmodernised and with plenty of character and charm, a garden and parking.

Comment from our vendors:-

An unusual house that is approximately 125 years od. Originally built as 5 cottages and later converted into 2 houses. At some point before Mrs Bennett bought the house in 1968 it was the village police station. The bathroom was used as the cell.

This lovely period house has been lived in by the same family for over 50 years, it is now ready to welcome the next owner, and whilst it is in need of updating there is oodles of potential.

Approached into the front hall there is a reception room to the right with original in-built cupboards and a window overlooking the front, the downstairs bathroom is a good size with a white suite. There is a sitting room with an open fire and a window with a window seat, and along the terracotta tiled corridor there is a large pantry which could be converted into a downstairs cloakroom. A side extension houses a good size kitchen with a window overlooking the garden and a covered area which could be used as a utility room/boot room, there is a door to the side into the garden.

Upstairs on the first floor there are wide landings leading to two large double bedrooms, one with dual aspect windows. On the second floor is a room which is formerly used for storage with dormer windows and original beams, a door leads into the third bedroom which is a lovely size.

Outside there are metal gates leading to a gravelled parking area, there is a small garden with a carport at one end.

The property will be offered to the market with no onward chain.

The village of Avening is located almost equidistant between Nailsworth and Tetbury and provides local facilities which include two public houses, a primary school with an outstanding reputation, and a historic Saxon Church. Located on the northern edge of Avening is the well-known Minchinhampton Golf Club, boasting two 18 hole courses.

Avening is very much in the “Royal Triangle” with Gatcombe Park, the home of The Princess Royal being immediately to the north of the village and Highgrove House, the country home of HRH The Prince of Wales, a few miles away near Tetbury. The nearest towns are Nailsworth and Tetbury, both of which have a reasonable range of local facilities including shops, public houses and primary schools with a secondary school at Tetbury. Also within the local area are a number of places of interest including the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum with some 18 thousand trees and shrubs in approximately 600 acres of landscaped grounds.
