A pretty detached Grade II Listed character property situated in a quiet spot in the heart of sought after Bisley.

Bisley is a superb Cotswold Village situated in an elevated spot a few miles East of Stroud. Well known and regarded for a bustling village community and attractive, character properties, it benefits from a post office, good school and two public houses. Stroud town is close by and amenities there include supermarkets, local speciality stores, a hospital and the award winning weekly farmers market. There is also a main line railway station, with a direct London (Paddington) service. Gloucester, Cheltenham, Cirencester and Bristol are all within comfortable driving distance.
An entrance hall, 14′ drawing room, 19′ garden room, 14′ dining room, 15′ kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, rear hall with pantry and cloakroom/WC are found on the ground floor. A landing, 25′ master bedroom with en suite shower room, family bathroom two further bedrooms are above, on the first floor, with a lovely 27′ attic bedroom with en suite bathroom at the top of the house, on the second floor.
The property benefits from parking, a garage and first class gardens. The house fronts on to Wells Road and is very much part of the classic Bisley Village street scene. The parking and garage are to the side of the property. The garage would have originally been a stable or cart house and this building now comprises the garage (15’2″ x 9’3″) and a workshop/ store room (14’3 x 9’1). The garage has electrically operated double doors and the workshop still has the hay rack and trough. One charming point to note – there is a recess in the wall that contains a parcel with a small amount of money. This is wrapped in a piece of newspaper, dated from 1939. The understanding is that this money would have been payment for a gardener or stable hand, who didn’t return to collect due to conscription.
A gate leads through from this area into the garden. This first class landscaped area is a joy, with a paved courtyard immediately behind the house and a couple of steps leading up to a lovely level lawn. This is edged with colourful, well planted borders stocked with a variety of shrubs. There are mature trees and a potting shed and a tool shed.
