The Property

‘Now being offered for sale with a parcel of land’, this extended semi-detached period cottage, lies in fabulous semi-rural location known as ‘The Heavens’ and enjoys far-reaching panoramic valley views.

Set back off from the private lane are two parking spaces to the front. A pathway to the side of the parking area follows down to the house.

The front door leads to a generous reception hall from which stairs rise to the first floor. The characterful kitchen also leads off from the reception hall and benefits from a period Belfast sink and a cosy log burner, setting the scene for cosy winter days. The kitchen flows into an impressive dining room which hosts a period fireplace. Bifold doors create a light and airy feel and when open, give a feeling of extending the room into the outside. The sitting room also enjoys internal glazed folding doors which can either be opened to give a larger single room, or closed to give the feeling of an additional snug. This area benefits from under floor heating. Also found on this floor is a wet room and a utility room. The first level offers three double bedrooms, two with far reaching views and period fireplaces all being served by a family bathroom with free standing bath.

Further stairs lead up to the top floor. Here you are greeted by a room which can be utilised as a home office, dressing room or occasional bedroom 5. A door leads to Bedroom four, which is currently being used as an additional home office, also with fantastic far reaching views.

This very special home offers a country lifestyle suited to those looking for peace,and wildlife while only being 1.4 mile walk from Stroud centre. It represents an exciting opportunity to live in an area where houses seldom become available. Part of its charm is the tranquil setting. We strongly suggest you locate the property down the single tack lanes by using the What3words app at fetches.snuck.thudding. (Don’t use Sat Nav)


As you approach the cottage, you will notice the raised parking area with space for two vehicles. Once parked, the pathway leads down to the front of the property past a gravelled area with a fruit tree and shrubs. The rear garden area benefits from a generous patio enjoying a tremendous west facing view and it wraps around to an additional area of seating, perfect for watching the sunset on a summers day. A Cotswold stone and block built outbuilding sits to the side of the property. This could lend itself to a variety of uses (subject to the relevant consents). There is also a section of paddock included in the sale which is detached from the property. It has tremendous views and it could lend itself to a variety of uses, such as a large play area for children, a vegetable plot or an orchard.
