About this property

  • 56 High Street is a charming and characterful, period home with a substantial footprint and the most outstanding gardens in a highly desirable central Thornbury location. Dating back to the 16th century, this double fronted family home has a rich heritage, which is apparent as you approach the canopy porch from the top of Thornbury High Street.

    The entrance hall, with original coved ceiling, provides plenty of space for coats and boots.
    Two reception rooms face each other on either side of the hall: the living room and dining room, both carpeted and with double glazed sash bay windows. Both rooms are of a good size, with original features including coving, ceiling roses and original fireplaces. Further down the hall is a third reception room, also of a good size, which is currently used as a music room but could equally be a second living room or games room, with double glazing and access to the rear courtyard garden.

    Opposite is a utility with plumbing for white goods as well as a sink and drying rack. There is a downstairs loo with wash basin next door.

    At the end of the hall is a spacious and very charming farmhouse style kitchen breakfast room which with exposed timber beams, a range of pine wall and base units as well as solid worktops and an integrated stainless steel drainer sink with waste disposal unit. There is also a built-in gas fired AGA and dishwasher.

    Through the kitchen is the most fantastic garden / drawing room, split over two levels having an abundance of natural light via skylights and full height, west facing, double glazed windows and French doors leading onto the garden. The room has part timber and part stone tiled flooring and a substantial wood burning stove.

    A timber staircase leads up to five bedrooms on the upper floor past a large store room with window on the half landing. All five bedrooms lead off a spacious landing with skylight. The principal and second bedrooms both have good sized en suite bathrooms whilst the other three bedrooms are served by a large family bathroom with a panelled bath, separate shower, airing cupboard and a skylight. The principal bedroom is particularly spacious with exposed beams, a duel aspect and access on to a delightful terrace overlooking the rear gardens, with views over the countryside as far as the River Severn and Welsh hills.

    The walled gardens to the rear are simply outstanding with two tiers, a south westerly orientation and extensive lawns leading via a gate at the back on to the Mundy playing fields and the country beyond. The gardens are substantial with a flagstone terrace, ideal for al fresco dining, leading down a few steps to level lawns with well stocked borders, mature shrubs and a range of high yielding fruit trees. There are also two garden sheds as well as four raised vegetable beds and three outdoor taps.
