Positioned just 1.2 miles from the centre of Stroud, nestled at the foot of Rodborough Common in the sought after area of Butterrow, lies this detached family home. Believed to date back to the 1950’s, the property is hugely deceptive from the front elevation, at first appearing to be a bungalow, however, in fact providing three floors of versatile family accommodation. The main entrance opens on the middle floor into an impressive kitchen, offering room for living, dining and fitted with contemporary units with French doors opening to wonderful large terrace from which far reaching views are enjoyed across and down the valley. The room is flooded with light. Stairs down from the kitchen lead to a side entrance hall, bedroom, WC and utility area which in turn connects to the garage. Subject to some alterations the area could offer independent accommodation for a relative. From the kitchen, doors open to further living space. Also located on this level is a pretty family room with picture window overlooking the view, a sitting room with woodburning stove, a home office with French doors opening to the front garden, a bedroom and a family bathroom. Stairs down from the middle floor hallway provide access to a further bedroom and boiler/storage room. The main bedroom suite is located on the top floor and is particularly special owing in part to its exceedingly generous size but also the picture window with window seat enjoying a view down the valley. A single bedroom is also found on this level, both of which are served by another family bathroom.
Set in a total plot of 0.3 acres. Parking for up to two cars is located immediately off Butterrow Lane. The property benefits from a right of way over the neighbours driveway providing access to a further parking area and attached garage. Steps down from the lane lead to the front garden which is laid to lawn with a green house and vegetable plot. The main expanse of garden extends to the rear of the property and provides a blank canvass for the new owner. Laid to lawn with a small wooded area to the far boundary, the gardens offer plentiful room for children to play and for the keen gardener.

Sunrise is positioned along Butterrow Lane which lies below the slopes of Rodborough and Minchinhampton Commons. The area of Butterrow cascades down the hillside, it is a mixture of old and modern dwellings gaining a view over the fringe of Stroud to the wooded hillside opposite that climbs to Lypiatt. Stroud just 1.2 miles away is the administrative and commercial centre and provides many facilities including Waitrose and a weekly Farmers Market. Roads radiate to the larger urban centres, travel being aided by the presence of the M5 west of Stonehouse and London (Paddington) train services passing through Stroud Railway Station and Kemble Railway Station (12.6 miles). Several primary schools are located within 1 mile and include Gastrells Community Primary School, Rodborough Community Primary School and Thrupp School. Stroud High and Marling Grammar schools located in nearby Stroud are popular choices for secondary education.
