Description - 16 West End is a deceptively spacious 'L' shaped period town house (in excess of 2,750 sq ft internally) conveniently close to the High Street. The property has obvious potential, subject to investment, to make a spacious family home again, with an integral garage and a pretty walled garden. The front door (flanked by the single garage with internal access) leads to a formal entrance hall and the front sitting room. The house extends deceptively far back from here, with a dining room (exposed beams), kitchen/ breakfast room, a further reception room and a utility room. The main staircase leads to a spectacular large landing which is flanked by three double bedrooms (one en-suite), and the family bathroom. There is a fourth bedroom above, under the eaves. A back staircase, off the kitchen, leads to another potential bedroom (door to roof terrace), with a shower room ensuite. 16 West End has a charming well-stocked walled garden. The house and its garden feel very much as one with a terrace around the side, central lawn and raised borders. There is a side gate to it from the street.
Location - 16 West End is only a three minutes from Minchinhampton High Street and within easy walking distance of its popular Primary School. The historic market town has a population of circa 3,000 and sits in the south-west of the Cotswolds, between Cirencester and Stroud. High up on the escarpment surrounded by spectacular scenery, the town has many lovely old properties at its centre like 16 West End. Local facilities are excellent including a general store, butcher, chemist and Post Office, as well as a gastro pub, two cafe's, doctor and dental Surgeries. Minchinhampton Common is immediately adjacent - perfect for dog walking and the town also has tennis, football, cricket and rugby clubs and two golf clubs offering three challenging courses between them. Minchinhampton is within two hours of London by road or circa 90 minutes by train from nearby Stroud. The latter also has a major Waitrose store as well as other supermarkets, a multiplex cinema and a leisure centre. Cheltenham and Bath are within easy reach and local residents commute to work over a wide area, including Bristol and Swindon as access to both the M4 and M5 motorways is straightforward.
