A stylish two-bed home on sought-after Bisley Road, just up from Stroud town centre, with stunning eat-in kitchen, terraced/landscaped garden with fabulous views and open plan living/dining room.
A well-presented and characterful bay fronted Victorian property set in an elevated position on Bisley Road, around a mile from Stroud town centre. This location is well known locally for its good community, with the Daisy Bank park, Crown and Sceptre pub and country walks in The Heavens all close by. The property is built using traditional methods, and the beautiful accommodation is arranged over two floors. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises a refurbished Victorian tiled entrance hallway, living room with wooden flooring (which is a consistent feature throughout) and a fireplace with built-in bookcases either side. The south-facing living room is open to the dining room, which has an original feature sash window, wooden storage cupboards and another fireplace. To the rear is the utility room, handy understairs storage cupboard and spacious modern fitted kitchen, with range-style cooker, double doors out to the garden and room to sit and eat. On the first floor is the landing, built-in cupboard, good-size bathroom with shower over the bath and boiler cupboard, a double second bedroom and a charming 13’ main bedroom across the front, with two windows and a fireplace. From here there are wonderful views over to Butterrow. The property has gas central heating, double glazing and a host of character features to include the beautiful tiled flooring in the entrance hall and the original wooden cupboards, to the dark-stained wooden staircase, and original wooden doors. The current vendor has improved the property by installing a new combi-boiler, restoring the tiled flooring in the hallway and general decoration to the interior.
The gardens for the four houses in this terrace were left open, to encourage a community spirit, but there’s privacy, too. Just outside the kitchen there’s a cute private courtyard, which is perfect for morning coffee. From there, steps lead up to two stone chipped terraces, a level lawned terrace with a greenhouse and a sloped lawn beyond. From the top of the garden there are stunning views of the River Severn and right across into Wales – you’ll have to see it to believe it! To the front of the house is a path with steps leading to the front door, lined with flower beds planted with various shrubs and trees.
This stretch of Bisley Road gives you the best of all worlds. It’s a short stroll down to town, with its buzzy cafes, real-ale pubs, independent shops, award-winning farmers’ market and the new Five Valleys shopping centre. For beautiful walks in nature, you’re minutes from The Heavens. You’re also in the heart of the local community, with the Crown & Sceptre pub and Daisy Bank park close by. Waitrose is down the hill, as is Stroud hospital. In the wider area there’s a good choice of state and private schools, leisure centre and mainline railway station with regular services to London Paddington (90 mins). Cirencester (10 miles), Cheltenham (15 miles) and Swindon (25 miles) are all within comfortable driving distance.
We are informed that all mains services are connected to the property.
