A beautiful example of a well-presented red-brick Victorian two bedroom property set on the ever popular Bisley Road with open plan living/dining room & character features
A sympathetically modernised 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, Crown and Sceptre and country walks close by. The property is built using traditional methods and the modernised accommodation is arranged over two/three floors. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises a tessellated tile entrance hallway, an open plan living space with wooden flooring running through which consists of a bay-fronted sitting room with woodburner and a dining room. The modern fitted kitchen with understairs pantry cupboard, integrated oven and hob and utility room with access to the rear garden are found at the back of the property. On the first floor is the landing, modern family bathroom with separate shower cubicle, a good size second bedroom and a stunning 12’ main bedroom with two sash windows. There is a partially converted attic room with Velux windows and a non-conforming stair case which is ideal for use as an occasional bedroom or as an office/study. Windows to the front of the property have a wonderful southerly aspect over to Butterrow so are particularly enjoyed from the main bedroom and attic room where on a good day you can see to the River Severn and beyond. The rear windows look up over the garden. The property benefits from gas central heating system and there are character features throughout from the original interior doors and flooring, the bay-fronted façade, original wooden cupboards and the original wooden sash windows. The current vendor has improved the property dramatically by installing a new kitchen and bathroom, installing a new heating system, repairing the roof and installing the woodburner to name a few elements, please ask for a complete list of works.
The interior is complemented by having a long terraced rear garden. The gardens for the four houses in this terrace were designed and left open to encourage a community spirit. There are various terraces as you make your way up the garden with fruit trees and planted borders but of note is a level lawn area suitable for sitting and enjoying the view as well as the patio seating area immediately to the back of the house. To the front of the property is stepped access and various shrubs and trees.
The immediate area benefits from the Crown and Sceptre pub, Daisy Bank and walks at The Heavens. Stroud town benefits from 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. 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.
