Location

Newent is an attractive and thriving unspoilt town with a range of attractions for shoppers and visitors. Many of the buildings date from the thirteenth Century and the centre piece of the town is the Old Market Hall which was built in 1668. The town is approximately 10 miles from Gloucester, 9 miles from Ledbury and just 4 miles to Junction 3 of the M50.

Description

Oakdale House is an impressive Grade II listed detached farmhouse offering a wealth of period features and generous flexible living accommodation. The house retains a number of original period features including sash windows, picture rails, beautiful stripped internal doors, high skirting boards and some particularly striking fireplaces. The property has been a much loved family home for over 20 years and offers an exciting opportunity with scope for some further updating and possible redevelopment.

The accommodation is arranged over four floors and on the ground floor comprises three elegant reception rooms, a large kitchen breakfast room, useful utility room and separate cloakroom. On the lower ground floor there are four cellar chambers and two store rooms, all with adequate head height. A striking staircase leads from the reception hall to the first floor with four double bedrooms, Jack 'n' Jill style bathroom and separate shower room. On the second floor there are three further double bedrooms and a store/dressing room.

Adjoining Oakdale House there is a two bedroomed cottage, Oakdale Cottage. The cottage has its own entrance but can also be accessed from inside the main house. The cottage comprises an entrance hall, living room with wood burning stove, kitchen, first floor double bedroom, bathroom, separate WC, second floor bedroom and store/dressing room. The cottage caters perfectly for a dependant relative or could provide a source of additional income if required.

Outside, there are an extensive range of outbuildings including a garage, several workshops and two large units (each measuring over 60ft in length) both with power and water connected. The property offers a well balanced blend of town and country living as it is within walking distance to the town centre and enjoys its own surrounding grounds, which extend to approximately THREE AND A HALF ACRES.

With so much to offer and with an abundance of potential, the agent's strongly recommend an internal inspection.
