3. Stroud, Gloucestershire, GL6

Edge Hall is an imposing five-bedroom, grade II listed property with landscaped gardens. Its handy annexe offers parking for three cars and studio accommodation, either for guests or office use.

4. Westbury-on-Severn, Gloucestershire, GL14

Enjoying a rural village location, Rock Farm is a charming, five-bedroom period farmhouse that has been tastefully restored with contemporary décor. With permission to convert its barn into two semi-detached holiday lets and a former cowshed into a three-bedroom home, it offers a wealth of development opportunities, too.

Other outbuildings on its 13 acres of land can be used for storage or stabling, as there are multiple fields and paddocks – not to mention formal stone walled gardens for the owners to enjoy and an area set aside for eating alfresco, complete with ‘secret’ vaulted patio.

This property is on the market for £1,800,000. For the full listing, visit

5. Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, GL50

With its elegant stone pillars, 20 Lansdown Parade in Cheltenham has serious kerb appeal. It’s also ideally located for making the most of the independent boutiques, galleries and café terraces that the nearby Montpellier district has to offer.

The tastefully refurbished five-bedroom property has retained its sash windows and shutters, mouldings and fireplaces, yet also benefits from modern luxuries such as underfloor heating, integrated kitchen appliances and an elegant marbled shower room.

Alongside seven bedrooms, this former rectory comprises a morning room, a breakfast room and a walk-in pantry, not to mention a drawing room, a boot room and a guest wing. And if you still think it could be enhanced by a home gym, tennis court and stabling, you’ll be glad to know there is plenty of room to add in all three!

This property is on the market for £4,750,000. For the full listing, visit

7. Ullenwood Court, Ullenwood, Cheltenham, GL53

Built into the landscape in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the outskirts of Cheltenham, Number 19 Ullenwood Court’s wraparound terrace helps make the absolute most of its stunning rural location.

And what this five-bedroom new build lacks in period features, it more than makes up for with its cinema room, living green sedum roof, and the option to include such finishing touches as an ‘endless pool’ – ensuring each of the 26 properties in this development is truly unique.

This property is on the market for £2,500,000. For the full listing, visit
