The sitting room and conservatory can also be found on the first floor.

Stroud sits below the western escarpment of the Cotswold Hills, encircled by five sweeping valleys. Once described by Jasper Conran as “The Covent Garden of the Cotswolds”, it is a market town with a Bohemian feel and many specialist shops, cafes, galleries, markets, cinema, bookstores, a vibrant farmers' market and a selection of supermarkets, the nearest being Waitrose. Stroud boasts a great variety of independent, state and grammar schools. The nearest motorway junction is 13 on the M5 providing access to Bristol and Cheltenham. Stroud mainline station provides a regular service to London (Paddington) in approx. 90 minutes.
The property offers a beautiful 'cottage-style' garden to the front, with a private raised seating terrace and access to the outbuilding, currently used as a utility. The pretty rear garden is accessed via steps from the kitchen and is mainly laid to lawn with a raised seating area and mature shrub and flower borders. A very peaceful spot on the outskirts of Stroud town. There is also access from the rear garden out onto The Chur where there is ample on road parking.
