    About this property

    • Surrounded by the beautiful, unspoilt countryside of the small hamlet of Holcombe Glen is this impressive Grade II listed Georgian country estate. The house itself has been extensively modernised and is beautifully appointed to a high standard throughout, with its grand proportions complemented by elegant décor: tiled floors, a gallery staircase, a built-in fireplace and brand-new kitchen and bathrooms. Improvements also included upgrades to the heating system, including two air source heat pumps, 12kw solar panels and an electric vehicle charger. There are far-reaching views on all sides over the surrounding countryside, gardens and paddocks.

      The accommodation is generously proportioned throughout, offering more than 5000 sq ft of space over four floors, including cellars with wine storage and additionally, a large attic. There are three expansive reception rooms, a farmhouse-style kitchen, boot room and WC. On the first floor, the principal bedroom is a good-size room and has an adjoining dressing room and bath/shower room. There are five further bedrooms, one en-suite, and two family bathrooms.

      The property, which is attached to the rear, is set within wooded grounds of about nine acres. The house is nestled within landscaped gardens, which feature a fountain, expansive lawns, woodland, terraces for garden furniture and a variety of flowerbeds. The house is approached by a long driveway leading to a large gravel parking area. A highlight of the home are the fantastic equestrian facilities, including paddocks, a block of stables, a separate barn and store, plus an Olympic size rubber fibre Menage, suitable for high level dressage. The equestrian facilities are attractively situated together just a short distance from the house, and there is excellent outriding locally around Holcombe Glen and the commons of Rodborough and Minchinhampton.
