The Property

This pretty Edwardian end-terraced home lies in an elevated position in the village of Brimscombe, enjoying a southerly aspect and affording views across the beautiful Golden Valley. The accommodation is arranged over two floors plus a good size loft room and a useful cellar. There are exposed wooden floorboards throughout, and several fireplaces, retaining the period feel of the house. From the hallway, doors lead off to two reception rooms and the cellar, and stairs rise to the first floor. The sitting room to the front benefits from an open fireplace and looks across the valley over rooftops. A separate dining room also has a fireplace with wood burning stove inset, and a built-in cupboard which houses the combination gas boiler, installed in October 2021. Hallway, sitting room and dining room are warmed by underfloor heating. From the dining room is accessed the galley style kitchen with a range of fitted wooden units, double sink unit and integral appliances including electric hob, oven and hood. There is space for a washing machine. A door leads to the rear courtyard. The cellar is accessed down a set of wooden steps and offers a great storage space, with natural light coming in from a window that looks across the garden. Upstairs, the landing enjoys the valley view to the front and doors lead off to two bedrooms and a bathroom. Both bedrooms have feature fireplaces with the front bedroom affording the lovely view and offering screened wardrobe space. A spiral staircase leads to a good-sized loft room. The present owners have installed photo voltaic panels on the roof to improve the energy efficiency of the house, the new owner of which will receive any FIT (feed in tariff) payments.


From the hallway, the original front entrance leads out onto a decked terrace, perfect for sitting with a coffee or G&T and taking in the valley view across the rooftops. A wooden pergola draped with grapevines offers both shade and a pretty canopy. Steps lead down to the main garden where shrub and flower borders are connected by gravel paths. A greenhouse with small pond sits at the top of the garden, in the middle are two raised veg beds and near the bottom some soft fruit. There is a useful storage area underneath the deck. A path running down the side of the garden leads to a shared pedestrian access to Churchill Road. To the rear of the house is a courtyard area accessed from the kitchen which provides a useful space for planted pots, and a covered log/bin store area.
