Orchard House was built in 1984 by The Elliott Brothers Builders and this is the first time that this impressive home has come back to the market having provided a wonderful family home for the original owners.

Situated in the heart of the delightful village of Slimbridge the property stands in its own landscaped gardens with a large driveway approached via a five bar entrance leading to a large attached garage. The accommodation is spacious and arranged over two levels including an entrance hallway, cloakroom, impressive 21ft lounge which leads into a double glazed conservatory with a west facing aspect overlooking the lovely rear gardens. There is a separate dining room and kitchen breakfast room and is comprehensively fitted with the benefit of an adjoining utility/laundry room. On the first floor there are four good sized bedrooms, the master having a luxury en-suite shower room complimented by a family shower room which has been recently refurbished. With tasteful decor the house has been extremely well maintained featuring gas central heating and double glazed windows.

Slimbridge is a sought after village surrounded by scenic Severn Vale countryside with village store, primary school, St Johns Parish Church and The Tudor Arms Public House at The Patch adjoining the canal and provides peaceful country walks and cycle paths. Beyond is the Wildlife and Wetlands Trust founded by Sir Peter Scott with its superb collection of birds from all over the world. Though essentially rural in character the village is by no means isolated and only minutes from the A38 and approximately 4 miles from junction 13 of the M5 providing convenient commuter links to the larger centres of Bristol, Gloucester and Cheltenham. There is a main line train station at Box Road, Cam about one and a half miles away with routes to Bristol and London Paddington via Gloucester.
