A stunning detached family home, wealth of charm and internally four receptions, six bedrooms and beautifully presented with lovely views.

This is the most delightful unlisted, detached family home, believed to date back as far as the early 1500s. Accommodation is over three floors and combines a wealth of period features with a very modern contemporary feel throughout. Bell House has received considerable modernisation over the last ten years with the owners having undertaken a large rear extension to create fantastic living space. It is fair to say this has been a labour of love with great attention to detail.

On approach parking for several vehicles. A side entrance leads into a spacious entrance hall with stairs leading to the two floors above. With full underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, oak wooden flooring follows from the hall into both receptions. To the front, is a reception room, designed as an office but could easily be used as a playroom or library; surrounded by original beams, fireplace and a period Gothic window. Family sitting room with exposed stonework and a stone mullion window; the room offers great space for any family. The hallway leads into the vast kitchen and family living area. The hand-made fitted kitchen is finished in bespoke Zebrano worktops and includes a breakfast bar, integrated appliances and solid-stone flooring throughout. This flows into the utility room where the owners have not only made a base unit raised from the floor enabling you to fit both a washing machine and a tumble drier at eye level, but created a walk in pantry with a wealth of shelving.

The kitchen opens to a family/dining room has bi-fold doors opening directly onto the terrace with views of the garden. The large roof lanterns allow natural light to flood this space. A further reception room is currently used as an additional living room that could easily be a playroom if required. A boot room with downstairs cloakroom and access to the rear garden is completed by a door leading to integral garage/workshop with double doors leading to the garden.

To the first floor on approach from the staircase is the most delightful gothic window before leading to a good-sized landing. Four double bedrooms to this floor, one being a guest bedroom with an en-suite and a master suite provides a dressing room area before leading to the bedroom also having an en-suite. This room would also be ideal for a teenage hideout. Family bathroom. To the second floor two lovely double bedrooms with exposed beams into the eaves with loft storage.

Internally, a very spacious and charming family home. Outside, double gates from the side lead to the front. The garden is all laid to lawn with a paved terrace directly outside the family room which creates perfect space for those summer barbecues and alfresco dining. There are views from the second floor across to the church at Slimbridge and the Forest of Dean.

The location allows for easy access to the M5 North and South, and sits convenient to railways stations at Stonehouse, Cam and Stroud. Also sitting in close proximity to the village of Slimbridge.

The Village of Cambridge is close to local amenities being only a short drive from Cam with its Tesco's supermarket, doctor's surgery and Berry Blue Bistro. Slimbridge Primary School is less than one mile from the property. The local town of Dursley provides a full range of shopping facilities and amenities including a Sainsbury's supermarket, dentist, doctor's surgery, library, leisure centre and bi-monthly farmer's market. Slightly further afield, Stroud, Cheltenham Spa, Gloucester and Bristol are also ideal for shopping.

Cambridge is well located close to the A38 providing easy access to the M5 motorway for daily commuting to the larger centres of Bristol, Gloucester and Cheltenham. There is a main line train station at Stonehouse serving London Paddington (1.5 hours) and a local service from Cam & Dursley serving Bristol (40 minutes).
