A delightful yellow-brick three bedroom period property in need of modernisation situated on Bisley Road in the heart of “Old Stroud” a short distance above the town centre. This unique style of property is in keeping with the varied nature of properties along Bisley Road due to the different designs that were imagined when constructed around the turn of the 20th century when the land was sold. This location is well known locally for its good community and allows for easy access to the shops, amenities and train station of Stroud with the Daisy Bank, Crown and Sceptre and country walks close by. The ground floor comprises an entrance hallway with access to the cellar, 13’ dual aspect living room with feature wooden doors, 12’ dining room with built in wooden cupboard, 8’ kitchen, 11’ conservatory which gives access to the garden and downstairs w/c. On the first floor is a landing with window, stunning 13’ dual aspect main bedroom with three windows, 12’ walk through room with built in wardrobe and bathroom. The top floor is home to another landing with window over and two 11’ bedrooms. Windows to the side of the property enjoy a breath-taking far-reaching westerly aspect down Bisley Road over Stroud and towards the River Severn in the distance. The property benefits from hot water solar panels as well as character features throughout the property from the lovely yellow-brick façade, feature stone column, sash windows, fire places and currently covered wooden floorboards.
The interior is complemented by having a good-size terraced rear garden. As well as the rear garden there is a level space immediately off of the conservatory which could be made into a seating area ideal for al-fresco dining. The terraced garden consists of a level stone chipped area, mature shrubs and plants with an outbuilding at the top of the garden which could be rebuilt to make an ideal working from home spot. There is paved, stepped access at the front of the property with a slope leading down to the road currently planted with a variety of plants and shrubs. The neighbouring property at 89 has a right of way across the garden to the side access on to Mount Pleasant.
The surrounding area benefits from the Crown and Sceptre pub, Daisy Bank, Stroud Hospital and walks at The Heavens. Stroud town benefits from an award winning weekly farmers market as well as 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 as well as. The recently opened “Five Valleys” shopping centre is of particular note and is certainly worth a visit for a range of market stalls, food stalls and stores. The wider area has a range of shops and amenities, including supermarkets, a hospital, state and private schools, a leisure and sports centre 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 mains water, drainage and electrics are connected to the property.
87 and 89 were amalgamated in the past but a recent approved planning application to make them separate dwellings has been approved. The council tax band prior to the amalgamation was a C but this will be confirmed by Stroud District Council in time.
