A fine example of an extended and modernised three bedroom detached Victorian property situated in the ever popular Rodborough just above Stroud town centre with lovely views and good size gardens
A completely renovated, extended and modernised red-brick period property set in an elevated position less then a mile from Stroud town centre in the community and parish of Rodborough. Rodborough benefits from popular primary schooling, a couple of pubs and of course the Common. The property is built using traditional methods and the modernised accommodation is arranged over two floors. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises a tiled entrance hallway, a good size utility room with plumbing for appropriate appliances and downstairs w/c, stunning 32’ kitchen/dining/family room with built in pantry cupboard, island, breakfast bar, woodburner and bi-fold doors which creates a great connection to the outdoor space. The quirky flooring, reclaimed from a sports hall in the Olympic Village in London leads to a lovely bay-fronted sitting room with woodburner and additional window through to the hallway for extra light. On the first floor is a good size landing which makes room for an office/study space, a stunning four piece bathroom with walk-in shower and roll top bath, three double bedrooms – one with wardrobe storage built in. Windows to the front of the property have a lovely aspect over the South side of Stroud towards Whiteshill so is enjoyed from bedroom one, bedroom two as well as the living room and kitchen. The property benefits from central heating, double glazing and a 13’ outbuilding with power, light and water which would make a great space for someone working from home or as a hobby room. There are character features with the red-brick façade and window lintel detailing, wooden flooring, fireplaces in bedroom one and two as well as woodburners in the kitchen and living room. The current vendor has improved the property from top to bottom to include a new roof, new windows, modern boiler, underfloor heating, extension and parking area as well as new kitchen/bathroom to name a few elements.
The interior is complemented by having a large enclosed front garden which can be accessed from the kitchen via bi-fold doors or through side access on either side of the property. The well-laid out space has been landscaped considerably and now consists of a large paved seating area suitable for outside dining and BBQs whilst taking in the views. Steps down past raised beds and a pond lead to planted borders and a lawn with a greenhouse, children’s play area and the outbuilding at the bottom of the garden. The driveway parking can be found to the rear of the property off of Spillmans Road.
Rodborough benefits from having a strong sense of community and a mixed demographic with two well-established primary schools, two churches, parks and play areas, various village pubs and of course the Common. 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 distance.
We are informed that all mains services are connected to the property.
