3 bedroom detached house for saleStroud, Gloucestershire
This three-bedroom detached, single-storey house (with approx 1,414 sq ft internal floor space) can be found west of Stroud in the Industrial Heritage Conservation Area. Set in the former grounds of a large 18th-century Grade II* listed house, the house has been designed by David Scott to fit in with its historic surroundings whilst also offering spaces that are uncompromisingly modern.
The front elevation takes the form of a continuous wall with only a door set into the centre. Constructed from reclaimed ashlar stone, the elevation echoes the walls of 18th-century kitchen gardens. The east and west elevations, which are screened from the entrance drive that this property shares with the main house, are fully glazed to maximise natural light and views.
Accommodation at the house (which was completed in 2013 and carries an NHBC guarantee) includes an open-plan living / dining room with a wood-burning stove, kitchen / breakfast room, master bedroom suite with en suite shower room and two further bedrooms. There is also a family bathroom and utility room. Underfloor heating, powered by an air source heat pump, runs throughout the house.
There are two garden areas at either end, one of which overlooks the main Grade II* listed house. Off-street parking for four cars can be found at the front of the house.
David Scott is an experienced architect with an established reputation for working on a variety of projects in the South West. He has worked extensively with listed buildings and making them suitable for contemporary use. Indeed, Scott worked on the adjacent Grade II* listed property, a large house thought to be designed in about 1770 by the renowned architect Anthony Keck (who also worked on Highgrove House). It was the home of Richard Hawker, a prosperous dyer who had the house built near the site of his works.
Dudbridge is situated on the edge of Stroud, in the south-west of the Cotswolds. At the head of five converging valleys, Stroud is a town synonymous with the milling and weaving industries which flourished in this area in the 17th and 18th centuries, before the Industrial Revolution made water-powered mills obsolete. Over the next 200 years Stroud has continued to be a major centre of employment, and is therefore a ‘working town’ which more recently has also become a noted centre for the arts in the Cotswolds. The town also has a broad range of independent shops, as well as an award-winning farmer’s market. There is also a Waitrose and other supermarkets.
Foremost among the advantages Stroud enjoys is its accessibility, having a mainline station with regular services into London Paddington in 95 minutes and being just 10 minutes' drive from Junction 13 of the M5. The nearest larger towns and cities include Gloucester (10 miles), Cirencester (13 miles), Cheltenham (14 miles) and Bristol (32 miles).
The area is well known for its outstanding schools including Stroud High for Girls and Marling for Boys. Private schools include Beaudesert Park pre and prep school and Wycliffe College at Stonehouse. There is also a Steiner Waldorf school, Wynstones which is in Whaddon, approx 5 miles away.
