A delightful one bedroom garden flat set within a grand converted manor house situated in Haresfield a few miles north of Stonehouse. Haresfield benefits from a garden centre, a primary school, inn/restaurant and church. Internally the apartment comprises a communal entrance hall, inner hallway/study area, fitted galley kitchen with integrated oven/hob, 11’ master bedroom with built in wardrobe storage, modern tiled shower room with heated towel rail and houses the boiler. On the other side of the hall is the 18’ living/dining room which leads out to the private garden. There are bookshelves fitted on one side of a feature fireplace currently housing an electric fire whilst an old enclave makes room for further shelving. The property benefits from gas central heating and character features throughout from the parquet flooring and high ceilings to stone mullion windows and picture rails. The most recent resident improved the property by having the wiring replaced, the plumbing redone and a more modern boiler installed as well as general decoration.
The interior is complemented by not only having communal gardens to enjoy but by having a good-size paved private garden off of the living room. The garden is low maintenance laid with a mixture of red-brick, paving slabs and resin bond making for a perfect seating area space for alfresco dining. There is also a brick built shed for storage and an allocated parking space next to the entrance to the garden. The communal gardens around the building consist of lawns, a lake with water feature as well as a visitor parking area.
Whilst the immediate area benefits from the garden centre, primary school, inn/restaurant and church, Stonehouse has a busy high street with numerous facilities including a train station with inter city services travelling to London (Paddington), a dentist, doctor’s surgery and various shops, pubs and eateries. Stroud town benefits from an award winning weekly farmers market as well as a variety of local independent shops and stores, pubs serving locally supplied beers and ciders and plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to eat and socialise as well as. The recently opened “Five Valleys” shopping centre is of particular note and is certainly worth a visit for a range of market stalls, food stalls and stores. The wider area has a range of shops and amenities, including supermarkets, a hospital, state and private schools, a leisure and sports centre with Cirencester (10 miles), Cheltenham (15 miles) and Swindon (25 miles) are all within comfortable driving distance.
