TENURE: Share of Freehold
A most exquisite home located across the ground floor of a large period property, perfectly placed for access to Stroud centre and a variety of amenities. This magnificent property exudes grandeur, enjoying exceptionally large rooms including what was the ball room to the original house. Having been restored by the existing owners the apartment now boasts generous family accommodation that has been lovingly improved to retain the features and essence of the original building. Features are in abundance throughout, however, what is particularly striking is the feeling of space and light facilitated by the tall ceilings and large mullion windows. From a canopied entrance porch doors open to a most impressive entrance hall with parquet flooring and panelled walls, from here access if gained to the utility and cellar. The entrance hall opens to a large sitting room with a beautiful leaded window, ornate fireplace and wooden arches. The sociable family kitchen enjoys a striking bay window and a double aspect outlook to the private grounds, providing room for dining and living with the added benefit of a woodburning stove. Free standing furniture provides storage. The exceptional drawing room measuring 27ft is remarkable not only due to its scale but ornate features including panelled walls, moulded ceilings and the beautiful ornate fireplace with woodburner inset which forms the focal point to the room. A large bay mullion window overlooks the garden.
All four bedrooms are positioned to the rear of property. The master bedroom being served by an en-suite shower room, with the remaining three bedrooms being served by a stylish family bathroom fitted with free standing roll top bath and separate shower cubicle. Bedroom three is particularly noteworthy due to the large mullioned bay window overlooking the garden.
