Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Occupying possibly the most enviable position in Dursley, 1 The Fortress commands a panoramic view across Dursley town and the surrounding vale. An extended 1930's home with plenty of retained features, set in a generous plot of approximately 0.4 acres with ample parking, a good garden, and a large area of adjoining woodland/garden.

Arranged over three floors the property has a wonderful entrance hall with original stone arch, ceramic tiled floor and a useful porch addition, which leads to all rooms. The sitting room at the front of the property is wonderfully light with a dual aspect and large bay window, fireplace with log-burning stove and timber flooring. A boot room has plentiful storage and provides access to the WC/cloakroom, a further door takes you from the entrance hall through to the dining room. Open to the kitchen the dining room has stone flooring and the original bread oven, the kitchen is a wonderfully light space looking out to the garden with a glazed roof, and warmed by an gas-fired Aga. A spacious utility room and a downstairs office/workspace compliment the ground floor.

Stairs ascend from the entrance hallway to the first floor where you will find four bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom at the front of the property has a bay window with spectacular views and fitted wardrobes, there are two further generous double bedrooms and a single bedroom. The 25' attic room has been converted to offer a spacious bedroom with a porthole window framing the view, eaves storage and an attractive, fully tiled wet room.

Outside there is a pretty front garden, parking for several cars and a garage*. The rear garden is a particular feature, gently terraced with several areas to entertain and from which to enjoy the views, in addition to a good patio space, summer house (with power), pond and a terrace with pergola. Beyond this there is a private area of woodland measuring in excess of 0.2 acres currently a vibrant habitat for wildlife to enjoy which adjoins private woodland at Stinchcombe Hill.

The property is located in Woodmancote, on a secluded lane on the side of Stinchcombe Hill on the outskirts of Dursley with beautiful countryside and woodland on the doorstep. While this location is peaceful and secluded the amenities of Dursley are only a 5 minute walk away.

Located on the Cotswold Way, Dursley offers an array of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and cafes along with The Pulse, a popular sports facility with pool, Stinchcombe Hill Golf Club, a library, bus station, and the famous Old Spot Public House. These are all within a comfortable 10-15 minute walk. Durlsey C of E Primary Academy a short walk away, is a well-regarded primary school and popular Rednock secondary school is conveniently positioned just beyond the town centre.

For those needing to commute, Cam and Dursley train station just a 10 minute drive away provides commuter links to Bristol, Gloucester and Cheltenham. Junctions of the M4 and M5 motorways are within relatively easy access, while Stroud (nine miles) and Kemble (sixteen miles) train stations offer convenient links to London.

Agents note: the garage has been reduced in size to accommodate the boot-room/WC conversion within the property but still offers excellent storage.
