Sold STC £695,000
A charming and spacious Grade II Listed period property with character features blending well with modern facilities, set in formal gardens of over half an acre. Convenient location for City centre, schools, railway station and motorway access.
The Property - Dating circa 15th century, with significant 18th/19th century additions, The Sheep House, originally a farmhouse and outbuildings, is a substantial family property that has been sympathetically modernised and renovated. Great care has been taken to retain the original features whilst blending them with modern conveniences and the practicalities of family living.
The kitchen, nearly 40' in length and open plan in style, is the main focal point of the house. Overlooking the garden with a south facing aspect, the room flows from a family area at the one end in an L shape through the kitchen to a conservatory/dining area projecting from the rear of the house. The kitchen is stylish, light and airy with flagstone style flooring, under floor heating and fitted with a range of bespoke units under a granite work surface that incorporates a five door Aga.
A flexible arrangement of formal reception rooms compliment the kitchen/family room. The wooden panelled dining room has a pair of bay windows bringing light to the room with the main focus on the large inglenook fireplace. A further sitting room and a drawing room make up the Victorian part of the house. Upstairs, the first floor of the house can be divided to suit with a large master suite at the one end of the property and four further double bedrooms all overlooking the gardens and pool. Two large second floor/attic rooms offer further flexibility.
Directions - Leave Gloucester City centre to the South East via Southgate Street and the Stroud Road, continuing over the traffic lights and pass Ribston Hall School on your right. At the mini roundabout turn right and the Sheep House is a short distance along on the left.
