This “very attractive” Victorian home for sale has valley views and a studio in a converted coach house. 

Sandford House, in Aylburton, is believed to have late 1700s origins but is primarily a Victorian property in character and architecture. 

The property has been modernised throughout, while retaining period features such as archways, exposed beams and flagstone floors.

On the ground floor, the entrance hall leads through to the sitting room, which features a bay window and a fireplace with a log-burning stove.

Outside, the grounds span 5.22 acres, including a farmyard, gardens and a seasonal pond.

The agent said: “A very attractive detached country property, full of character, with annexe, range of outbuildings and about 5.22 acres of land with superb views over a gentle valley, adjoining the Lydney Park Estate. “The property is an unlisted home which is principally Victorian in character and architecture, but is believed to have origins back to the late 1700s. 

“Period features include archways, a tessellated floor in the entrance hall and a flagstone floor in the rear hall. 

“There are exposed beams and roof trusses, coved ceilings and moulded architraves and a very attractive staircase with fine spindles rising to the first and second floors.”
