Situation

The property is located on the edge of the village of Redmarley d'Abitot, on the borders of the Three Counties in west Gloucestershire.

Mellow Farm Lodge


Mellow Farm Lodge is situated within a small, private development in an idyllic rural location, yet is not isolated and offers a pastoral quality of life with the benefits of excellent commuter links.
Formally a modern agricultural barn dating to the 1970's, the building was converted in 2009 to provide a generously proportioned and comfortable home.
The reception rooms all lead off a welcoming entrance hall with the stairs leading up to a light and airy galleried landing.
The spacious open plan, kitchen/dining/sitting room is lovely and light and easily has room for a dining table and chairs, along with a generous sitting room area with a wood-burning stove. Floor to ceiling glazed panels with French doors give direct access to the decked terrace and garden.
A modern, fitted kitchen with integrated Neff electric cooker, cooker hood and hob sits well within the open plan area, and offers ample storage with space for a fridge-freezer and dishwasher.

Mellow Farm Lodge Ctd.


Three well-proportioned double bedrooms are situated over both the ground and first floors. The ground floor double bedroom has French doors opening to the decked terrace and is adjacent to the downstairs shower room which doubles up as a useful utility room.
The two double rooms on the first floor each have a generous en-suite bath/shower room and French doors opening onto their own attractive covered balconies to enjoy the stunning distant views over the surrounding rural landscape.

The Outside


A side gate from the front of the property gives access to a private and enclosed south facing garden, which offers further scope for keen gardeners.
The garden is mainly lawn with some mature trees and a raised bed, which could equally be utilised as a flower or veg bed if desired.
A generous decked area, also accessible directly from the house, provides a wonderful alfresco dining and entertaining area, and is complemented by a timber pergola adorned by climbing plants.
To the side of the barn is a versatile and attractive garden room/store which could be fully enclosed to make it suitable as a work/hobby room or potential home office if required. There is also a log store and greenhouse.
A gravelled area at the front of the property provides parking for up to 2 cars.
