Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
This is a very imposing attached Grade II listed house situated on the outskirts of Stroud, with views to the side of school playing fields and sports grounds. Views from the gardens and upstairs across to The Fort, Rodborough and Selsley. The property is currently two separate apartments, however, due to being sold, to create a more straight forward divide of the building, the owner is retaining the first floor bathroom to avoid a large flying freehold. One to the ground floor with two bedrooms and one to the first floor, also with two bedrooms.

To make alterations to the property in any further way we understand you would probably require Listed building consent. The property is sold as seen and no offers would be accepted subject to permissions being granted. This property is subject to a right of way for two retained properties at the rear. The grounds are to the front, all laid to lawn and four garages to the side of the driveway.

Internally, entrance porch with stunning leaded light glass to the front entrance, this has currently two front doors providing access to both ground and first floor apartments. To the ground floor, access into entrance hall. To the front, a large sitting room with three doors opening to a covered terrace overlooking the grounds. A wealth of features throughout to include mullion surround to the windows, high ceilings, window shutters, beams and exposed stonework. Fitted kitchen, bathroom and one large double bedroom and one single bedroom. This completes the ground floor.

The second apartment is accessed via an entrance hall with under-stairs storage and delightful staircase leading to the first floor, which opens to a large landing. Accommodation is over two floors. A large sitting room to the front with views. Two double bedrooms and a kitchen. A further staircase leads off the spacious landing to a loft room with a few steps leading off into further attic space. Overall the property will require permissions and altering to make into one dwelling and will require some internal updating although in good order. The property being set back from the road offers privacy but benefits from being close to local facilities.
