Edwardian House is in a Great Location
An elegantly proportioned, surprisingly spacious Edwardian family house situated on the fringe of the popular Cotswold market town of Minchinhampton, this property is close to more than 200 acres of National Trust common land.
Longbourne is thought to have been built in the early 1900s. It is of a stone construction under a tiled roof. The property, having been extended by previous owners, provides beautifully presented, extremely spacious reception rooms together with five good-sized bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The gardens are arranged principally to the rear and are a particular feature of the property. They have been beautifully landscaped to provide an extremely good-sized raised terrace area with access from the kitchen and dining room.
Stone steps lead down to a level lawned area with flower borders containing an abundance of mature trees, shrubs and bushes. The garden continues to a lower vegetable area, containing fruit bushes, a productive and established asparagus bed, a good-sized compost area and a timber-framed greenhouse.
To the front there are further mature shrubs, trees and bushes and a long driveway providing ample parking for a number of vehicles, leading to the detached garage.
