A unique Grade II listed Cotswold stone town house dating back to circa 1700 situated just above the High Street in Stroud town with character features throughout & southerly views
An attractive Grade II listed town house which offers a fantastic opportunity to own a Cotswold stone property right in the heart of Stroud town. The immediate area benefits from a popular primary school, a well-regarded local pub, take away food options, a café and laundrette. The property is built using traditional methods and the accommodation is arranged over four floors. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises an 18’ living room with working hob grate and Cotswold stone surround and 20’ (max) dining room. You are immediately greeted with desirable character features with the high ceiling, exposed wooden beams, fire place and wooden panelling. The dining room continues this theme with a wooden lintel and large corner fire place. Downstairs to the lower ground floor is the kitchen and despite having relatively modern units fitted, the flagstone flooring, stone mullion window and large fireplace with bread and proving oven bring the property’s history and character to your attention. The cellar is accessed off the kitchen and has power and light. On the first floor is a landing, feature bathroom with separate shower, storage cupboard and roll top bath, an office/study and 13’ bedroom with two integrated wardrobes making up the space in what would have been old windows in time gone by. The top floor is currently home to a 16’ attic room and a 17’ bedroom, one with a dormer window and one with a Velux style window – both with wooden beams. Windows to the rear of the property enjoy a southerly aspect so are particularly enjoyed from the dining room, bathroom and attic room. The property benefits from gas central and partial double glazing whilst the current vendor has improved/modernised the central heating system whilst installing the bathroom.
The interior is complemented by having a courtyard garden to the rear of the property accessed from the kitchen. The courtyard which benefits from lovely afternoon sun and a open aspect consists of a low maintenance patio seating area and a good size wooden shed/outbuilding.
Nelson Street itself benefits from an established pub, primary school, take away food options, a café and laundrette. Stroud town benefits from a variety of local independent shops and stores, art galleries, pubs serving locally supplied beers and ciders and plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to eat and socialise. The wider area has a wide range of shops and amenities, including supermarkets, a hospital, state and private schools, a leisure and sports centre, award winning weekly farmers market and a main line railway station with inter city services travelling to London (Paddington). Cirencester (10 miles), Cheltenham (15 miles) and Swindon (25 miles) are all within comfortable driving.
We are informed that all mains services are connected to the property.
