The Southerly Wing of a handsome Grade II listed Georgian country house in a elevated spot along a private drive off Thrupp Lane with large rooms, high ceilings & parking for several cars
Rarely available in the Stroud area – a wonderful example of Georgian architecture situated in a private position along a gravelled drive less than a mile from the shops and amenities of the town. The South Wing is part of The Thrupp, an imposing Grade II listed Georgian country house, and is very much of the vernacular, with large sash windows with shutters, high ceilings and character features, with spacious, light accommodation arranged over two floors. An entrance hall, cloakroom/WC, 18’ dining room with fireplace, kitchen with bespoke units from The Shaker Kitchen Company and integrated appliances and lovely sitting room with fireplace are on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the sitting room to the landing, with two double bedrooms and a bathroom on this floor. All the principal rooms feature those wonderful full height windows and these take in the light that the southerly aspect affords.
The property benefits from parking for several cars and well kept gardens. The parking is to the front of the property, with a terraced planted border behind. A couple of steps lead up to the side of the property, by the front door, to a private sitting spot with a raised border behind, planted with vinca and hebe. The majority of the garden is to the front of the property, with a sloping area with a grand old Tulip tree leading up to a formal level lawn with border behind, planted with hostas, alium and other shrubs. There is a further area beyond this, above and to the side, and this area has a wild garden feel, with ferns, geraniums and other wild flowers, and a paved sitting area with a fire pit, with a view over the neighbouring field and along the Golden Valley.
Thrupp is a popular area less than a mile to the East of Stroud on the sunny side of the Golden Valley. Stroud’s shops and amenities are with easy reach, with canal side walks at the bottom of the hill and some wonderful countrywide just up the lane at The Heavens. As such, the property enjoys the advantages of being equidistant between open countryside and the lively town of Stroud, which offers a wide range of shops, supermarkets, schools and colleges and leisure facilities. Stroud Railway Station provides a main-line service to Gloucester and London. Junctions of the M4 and M5 Motorway are also within easy driving distance.
The property is owned by a Director of Peter Joy Estate Agents Ltd.
The Thrupp comprises of four properties – The West Wing, East Wing, South Wing and The Observatory. It was decided that Leasehold was the best tenure for the building, as the main roof is shared by several of the units. The residents own the freehold and are directors of the management company, with the 999 lease formed on 19.09.2003. The South Wing currently pays £43.00 per month for buildings insurance and a sinking fund.
