Situated in a popular residential road on the outskirts of Stroud, this house offers an exciting opportunity to own a period home with spacious and flexible accommodation, less than a mile from the town centre. Arranged over four floors, no.54 enjoys features of the period, such as fireplaces, picture rails and high ceilings. It commands breath-taking views from the rear of the property across the valley and the town and on a clear day towards the River Severn and beyond. An integral ‘Victorian style’ open porch leads to the front door, opening onto an entrance hall with decorative arch. Stairs rise to the first floor and doors radiate to the sitting room and bedroom, which benefits from a sash bay window, exposed brick fireplace and hearth, picture rails and built-in shelving and cupboard. The sitting room looks out onto the valley views and offers a feature fireplace, picture rails and shelving in both alcoves. From here, stairs lead down to the lower ground floor into a great family room also with a fireplace and built in cupboards, opening to the kitchen/dining room. This has exposed floorboards, a range of fitted wall and base units, a built in oven and gas hob, spaces for washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer and space for a dining table. A large wooden worksurface also doubles as a handy breakfast bar. From the family room, a door leads to a lobby where a bathroom and door to the rear garden can be found. On the first floor are two further good sized bedrooms with fireplaces, a bathroom, built in cupboards and stairs to the second floor. The rear bedroom enjoys views across the valley. The second floor is a 20ft attic bedroom which again takes in the stunning views to the rear. The exposed wooden beams in this room give a lovely feeling of character however there is some restricted head height.
The rear garden is a real asset to the house and is arranged over several terraces. With some landscaping and hard work it could be absolutely magnificent. The top terrace enjoys views across treetops to the valley beyond, a perfect area for al fresco dining. Steps lead down to an area of lawn from which there is gated side access to the neighbouring garden, providing no. 54 with a pedestrian right of way for deliveries etc. A gently sloping path takes you to a natural area featuring a beautiful Japanese smoke tree as a focal point and leading to a covered Turkish Kosk style gazebo. A further lawn to the bottom is enclosed by wooden fencing. To the front is a small courtyard area enclosed with railings.
