A well presented detached character cottage set away from passing traffic above town centre on the edge of the Conservation area with good living space and sunny gardens. Chain Free
Quiet position away from passing traffic for this pretty detached character cottage. Situated just outside the conservation area in a no through road above Stroud Centre, this location allows for easy access to the shops, amenities and train station of the town with local parks and country walks also within easy reach. The property is constructed using traditional methods under a pitched roof and has been carefully presented and decorated, with bright accommodation arranged over three floors.
A porch leads into a light dining room with lovely Inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. This opens through into a kitchen, with these two spaces working as one good living area. A 14′ sitting room with fireplace and conservatory are also on the ground floor and the current owner has obtained planning permission to replace the older conservatory with a garden room and cloakroom/WC A landing, two bedrooms and a bathroom are on the first floor, with an attic bedroom that runs the entire width of the house at the top of the property, on the second floor. There is a good outlook from this level, and the owner also has permission to improve this space, with consent to raise the roof and add Velux windows.
Both the front and rear gardens have clearly been a labour of love, with both spaces benefitting from well planned, colourful planting. A path leads from the footpath to the front door, with planted areas stocked with a variety of established shrubs to either side. There is a private, sunny area to the side with space for a table and chairs, and access to the outbuilding/utility room. The rear garden comprises lawns and colourful borders, with another good sitting spot at the rear.
Stroud town centre is within easy walking distance and offers a comprehensive range of facilities. These include supermarkets, (Waitrose within walking distance) local speciality stores, a hospital, state and private schools and award winning weekly farmers market. There is also a main line railway station, with Intercity services connecting with London (Paddington). Gloucester (9 miles), Cheltenham, Cirencester and Bristol are all within 30 miles proximity. Junction 13 of the M5 motorway is also within easy driving distance.
