Crowell Brook Mill occupies seven acres in a very private and secret valley, part of an area of outstanding natural beauty on the outskirts of North Nibley, which lies less than a mile away. The property is not overlooked by any other houses, which is most rare nowadays. The principal bedrooms are all en-suite.
The garden is mostly laid down to shrubs, lawns, woodland and ponds to minimise upkeep, the layout inspired by ideas borrowed from great gardeners of the past. The mature orchard is planted to apples, pears, plums and a damson. A paddock of about four and a half acres is grazed by a neighbour's sheep. A copse planted to natural indigenous trees some years ago is now in its prime. It all makes for a very peaceful and relaxed living environment.
Crowell Brook was purchased seventeen years ago through the sale of three separate properties to provide private accommodation for the present owners and their relations. As such parents were able to live their separate and independent lives in what is described as the House and Cottage; the Mill being retained for the present owners. This explains the rather complicated layout of the floor plan. However, the extensive use of studding means that layout changes are relatively simple to make to accommodate a wide range of alternative requirements.
North Nibley has an acclaimed primary school which successfully feeds secondary education in the area include grammar schools. There is also a selection of private senior schools in the locality including Westonbirt and Wycliffe. The village post office store is a thriving enterprise providing delivery for newspapers, specialist groceries and valuable banking services.
The area is served by two pubs, has a football team and a cricket team and is home to the annual Lister Tyndale Steam Rally.
Dursley and Wotton are only a few miles away and provide all the amenities that you would expect from larger towns.
Although set in a peaceful, countryside location, the property is just a short drive from the M5 and A38, meaning that Bristol, Bath, Cheltenham are all easily commutable.
