Rodborough Common, Stroud, Gloucestershire, GL5


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
A substantial attached period home centrally located between Rodborough and Minchinhampton commons, surrounded by over 600 acres of National Trust common land. The present owners have lovingly restored this important local residence. Their aim was to renovate the period features at the same time as upgrading the facilities to a higher and more comfortable standard. The various works carried out have helped to create a fabulous family home. Even though Beech House is attached to its neighbour, it very much feels like a detached property. As you will see from the floor plan, the layout of the comprehensive accommodation is found over two levels. Upon entering the property, you are met with a beautiful entrance hall with access to both of the principal reception rooms and the kitchen. The impressive 31' sitting room benefits from a fireplace with an open fire. The kitchen opens to a breakfast room with access out to the garden and has been refitted to provide a range of units, centre island and Aga. To the first floor you will find five spacious bedrooms, with the master enjoying an en-suite. The further bedrooms are served by the family bathroom. Outside you will find a detached office with vaulted ceiling, which is a huge advantage to anyone who works from home. Property Ref: STR190103.


A gated driveway to the side of the house offers parking for multiple vehicles and access to a three-car car port. The gardens are a particular asset to the property and lie to front and back, totalling 0.66 of an acre. The gardens are mainly laid to level lawn with an all-weather tennis court, a large patio and seating terrace, an outhouse and an array of mature trees and flower and shrub borders.
