The popular location at Edens Hill is on the outskirts of Upleadon, within the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside and lies close to the Herefordshire/Worcestershire borders. The area is characterised by traditional farms and wooded hills with the village originally registered in the Domesday Book as a part of the Gloucester Abbey Estate in the 11th Century. Now it affords a distinctly rural lifestyle but benefits from easy access to local towns and principal transport routes, with good communication links to the motorway network.


Cedarwood has been in the same family ownership for some 66 years but is now being offered for sale by Private Treaty. This provides an excellent opportunity to acquire a very honest refurbishment project within a superb and highly sought after rural location. This timber built property will require investment to either refurbish the existing home or to build a replacement dwelling, subject to any necessary consents. However, this site offers a great opportunity to create a wonderful and secluded home in a lovely private environment.The current bungalow offers:-
Three bedrooms, two double, one single and a family bathroom.
A kitchen/breakfast room in basic format, but with scope to improve.
A spacious sitting room with double aspect and open fire, with private views over the rear garden and woodland.
An external utility/boot room situated off the rear covered porch area by the back door, along with a separate wood store. There is also separate WC in the inner hall off the rear entrance hall, plus a traditional walk-in larder.

This cedar shingle clad home is set back from the country lane and accessed via a gravelled driveway, with modest parking area and single detached garage.
Established gardens, planted with an array of evergreen shrubs, flowering plants and mature trees, surround the property, which is private, not overlooked and quietly situated.
Cedarwood is largely bounded by its own mature woodland, the whole plot extending to some 4 acres and provides a haven for wildlife.
There are also some rudimentary outbuildings, a part-brick built store and a greenhouse.
