A unique example of a well-proportioned three bedroom detached red-brick property on Horns Road within the ever popular Old Stroud with open plan reception space, large garden and two outbuildings
A delightful three bedroom period property situated on Horns Road in the heart of Old Stroud a short distance above town. This unique property is deceiving due to its detached nature as well as being ideally situated to benefit from a longer than usual garden and open front aspect.

The ground floor comprises a entrance hall leading to an inviting 25′ open plan living space. You enter into the 12’ dining room which runs over wooden flooring to the 15’ bay-fronted sitting room. From the dining room to the rear is a fitted kitchen with integrated oven/hob and a lovely garden room which is a perfect additional reception space that gives access to the downstairs cloakroom and garden. On the first floor is a landing, large four piece bathroom with separate shower and storage space with the 14’ bedroom across the front with two windows, fire place and built in wardrobe storage. The top floor is home to a 12’ third bedroom and 14’ bedroom also with two windows and built in wardrobe storage. There is a paddle ladder to a useful attic room with three Velux style windows, electrical sockets, carpet and ample eaves storage. Windows to the front of the property enjoy a lovely open aspect towards Butterrow and down the golden valley so is particularly enjoyed from the attic and bedrooms one and two. The property benefits from gas central heating and double glazing with character features throughout the property with the wooden flooring, bay-fronted frontage, red-brick façade and fire places.
