A thoughtfully-designed and immaculate two bedroom cottage on this established, tranquil development a short walk to shops and facilities. The property is located on a purpose-built retirement development for the over 55s. Management services are provided by Cognatum Estates, a not-for-profit organisation and one of the uk's leading companies in retirement housing.
The cottages and apartments of Stuart Court are built in local Cotswold stone in the grounds of a former Victorian rectory. The rectory, Stuart House, is a fine looking building now converted into apartments, which remains the centrepiece of the estate surrounded by superb landscaped gardens and magnificent trees.
A short walk from the estate through the private woodland conservation area takes you to the heart of the village with its post office, library, chemist, doctor’s surgery and restaurants, as well as a village café that sells delicious cakes, cheeses and milk all produced at local farms. Minchinhamption is surrounded by hundreds of acres of common land, much of which is National Trust, allowing for gorgeous walks alongside wild flowers and quietly-grazing horses and cattle. Stroud is the nearest town, with numerous pubs, restaurants and shops as well as a train station, and Cirencester, Cheltenham and Gloucester are also all within 18 miles. One of the highlights of the local social calendar is the nearby Gatcombe Horse Trials, held at the home of the Princess Royal every August.
Cognatum Estates maintains, repairs and insures all the buildings, arranges the window cleaning and refuse collection and tends to the gardens and grounds thereby freeing owners and residents from these responsibilities. There is a guest suite for visitors and a minibus service is available for shopping trips and outings. All properties have a personal alarm system. A resident estate manager, makes this an ideal 'Lock up and Leave' property. The cost of providing the services is shared equally between all properties.
