A rare opportunity – a detached Grade II Listed period property for complete renovation in the heart of sought after Bisley. This location is very much part of the thriving local community, with a post office/store, a good school and a choice of pubs within easy reach and lovely country walks just along the road. We understand the property was originally built in the 17th Century and was then extended in the 18th Century and is built using traditional methods from Cotswold Stone and is now in need total renovation but offers prospective buyers a unique opportunity to update a character family home to their own standards, with character accommodation arranged over two floors.
A lean to porch, cloakroom/WC, kitchen, dining room, sitting room and drawing room are on the ground floor. Two staircases lead up from this level, with one leading to a landing, two bedrooms and bathroom and the other, from the drawing room, leading to a large landing, bedroom and en suite WC. This area could be used as a master suite or guest suite, as it would relatively easy to add a shower to the WC. Conservation minded buyers with be pleased that character features are found throughout the property, including a lovely window in the sitting room and some intriguing pigeon perch detailing to the gable end.
The property benefits from an enclosed garden, found at the front of the property. This private spot is level, with a gated path leading across the front of the property out on to the lane. There is a garage attached to the property, with a personal door leading into this from the kitchen. The garage is historically accessed by driving through the pub grounds and whilst the owner of the property has had an agreement with the pub for this access for twenty plus years we understand that there is no guarantee that this will continue indefinitely, so buyers may instead choose to convert this space, perhaps extending the kitchen, subject to the relevant planning, conservation and building regulation consent. To the front driveway parking leads to the integral garage with further paved parking to the side. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders, patio area to the front and two garden sheds and a greenhouse.
