Robinson David Estate Agents invites you to immerse yourself in the timeless charm of Glen Cottage: a standout 300-year-old detached country cottage magnificently positioned at the end of Woodcock Lane, neighbouring the tranquil Cotswold Green.
Over the centuries, this home has been extended and recently modernised, harmoniously merging traditional allure with contemporary comforts. Although deeply rooted in Stonehouse's history, Glen Cottage is free from the constraints of Grade 2 listing, offering boundless potential for all new future homeowners.
As you venture into this gem, the entrance hall, adorned with flagstone and briquette flooring, sets the stage for the combined period and modern elegance that unfolds, first leading to an inviting ground-floor bedroom to the front of the property, with a charismatic fireplace, secondly to the modern cottage-style kitchen, which overlooks the verdant garden, effortlessly blending function and form.
A dining hall paves the way to the heart of the home, an expansive sitting room, where an incredible inglenook stone fireplace stands proudly, surrounded by features that are memories of the home’s previous years, flanked by wall-to-wall bookcases. From the sitting room is a currently unused entrance porch leading to the front of the property.
But Glen Cottage's country charm doesn't end there. As you ascend to the first floor, three airy double bedrooms await, each echoing the property's rich heritage. Adjacent, an impressive commodious family bathroom, which holds the potential to be split to add an en-suite to the master bedroom, promises moments of relaxation. Even the attic whispers the possibility of metamorphosis, awaiting a visionary touch.
Yet, the annexe, resembling a self-contained studio apartment equipped with its own en-suite and kitchenette, is a testament to the home’s adaptability. Whether you see it as a fifth bedroom, a guest suite, a personal retreat, or an AirBnB opportunity, it adds another layer to the cottage's versatility.
Externally, Glen Cottage's surroundings are equally as captivating.
Approximately half an acre of mature grounds envelops the property, painting a picturesque tableau with a backdrop of fields to the side and rear. The promise of seclusion is palpable. Amongst the garden's many facets are a patio area dedicated to the annexe, a large lawn, trees, two purpose-built outhouses, a vegetable patch, a chicken coup, and a sprawling flowerbed. At the same time, ample gated parking space at the front ensures modern-day safety and conveniences are met.
The location of Glen Cottage, being on the edge of Stonehouse near Stroud, means that all homeowner’s travel needs are met, with Stonehouse being easily accessible to the M5 motorway and boasting a train station with a direct link to London.
Every corner of Glen Cottage exudes character - be it the period fireplaces, the traditional flooring, or the iconic architecture. It's not just a home. It's an embodiment of Stonehouse’s heritage, a representation of Robinson David's commitment to quality homes, and a testament to the beauty that Gloucestershire has to offer.
