A lovely example of a charming three bedroom cottage tucked away just above Stroud town centre with larger than average gardens, a good size living room, character features and a south westerly aspect
A delightful three bedroom character cottage set in a secluded spot just above Stroud town centre with a sunny southerly aspect towards Rodborough. 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 two floors. The accommodation on the ground floor comprises an entrance area which leads straight into the 18’ fitted kitchen with double door access to the garden, integrated oven and hob, bathroom with w/c and plumbing for a washing machine and the 17’ living room with red-brick fire surround and woodburning stove. The wooden staircase takes you to the first floor where there are three bedrooms. Windows to the front of the property enjoy a south westerly aspect so are particularly enjoyed from bedroom one and two. The property benefits from gas central heating and double glazing in most parts of the property whilst the window shutters are a common theme throughout. There are character features to include the aforementioned fireplace and woodburner as well as the old wooden flooring and exposed beams. The current vendor has improved by installing the modern kitchen and replacing the bathroom.
The interior is complemented by having a larger than average garden particularly for town living and divides into a few different areas. To the front of the property is a patio seating area which leads to a lawn and a good size wooden shed/outbuilding with power. To the side of the property is a raised decked area with planted borders and a nine by ten metre area which is currently covered but ready to be made one’s own i.e a vegetable growing area, raised beds or a children’s play area . To the rear of the property is a good size courtyard which enjoys a westerly aspect towards Whiteshill and is ideal for sitting out and enjoying a BBQ or as the vendor has done in the past use it as a table tennis area.
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.
