Outstanding setting and views

Trillis has enormous charm. The original traditional period cottage has been extended over more recent years, very much in the Arts and Crafts style, to give a number of good-sized reception rooms, all of which take full advantage of the magnificent views in all directions. The layout of the rooms is such that the house can be used very flexibly and adapted to the owners personal needs and requirements. Trillis is not Listed. Planning permission was granted in 2016, ref. S.16/2151 (now lapsed) for alterations and extension to modify the layout, particularly on the first floor. Copies of the plans are available from Strutt & Parker.
This property has 23.87 acres of land.
The main entrance leads to a parking area to the side of the house. A further entrance has a track leading to a former barn, now opensided and providing useful storage space with potential for stabling.
Trillis Cottage lies below the main house and comprises a detached 2-bedroom house, again with wonderful views.
Surrounding the house and cottage are undulating paddocks and fields, running down to the former Thames and Severn Canal. There are areas of mature woodland.
Trillis is situated just outside the small village of Far Oakridge, amidst dramatic Cotswold countryside, in the heart of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

From Cirencester take the A419 west for Stroud. After about 3 miles fork right for Sapperton and Edgeworth. Ignore the right hand turnings into Sapperton and drop down the hill. Opposite the Daneway Inn fork left for Waterlane and Bisley. Go up the hill and through the woods. After about half a mile turn left for Far Oakridge. As you enter the village after about a mile, take the left hand fork signed to Iles Green. Ignore the right hand turning back up into the village and continue southwards towards the valley, keeping left by a small right hand turning.
