Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This handsome detached period residence is in need of restoration and rejuvenation. Even though the front facade makes you think Coombe House was constructed in the Victorian era, it is believed by the current owner to have much earlier origins to the rear of the property. There are many character features displayed within the accommodation such as high ceilings, sash windows, bay windows in both principal reception rooms, several fireplaces (some blocked and some purely ornate), picture rails, coving, exposed beams, deep skirting boards and a fabulous patterned tiled entrance hall. The floor plan clearly shows the present layout. It offers great scope for modern day improvements. Property Ref: STR170014

Situation

Situated on the fringes of the beautiful and famous Laurie Lee's Slad Valley, this property is also less than a mile away from the centre of Stroud. This market town has a Bohemian feel and is popular for its literature, arts and historical industrial woollen mills with the old canal system being currently rejuvenated. There are many specialist shops, cafes, galleries, cinema, sports and leisure clubs and an award-winning farmers' market. There are a great selection of educational choices for all ages including independent, grammar and state schools. The nearby M5 provides access to Bristol and Birmingham. Stroud railway station has a regular service to London (Paddington) in approx. 90 minutes. Cirencester, Cheltenham and Gloucester are all within 14 miles.

Outside

On arrival you see an impressive Cotswold stone boundary wall with gated pedestrian access up to the property and stone pillars either side of the short driveway. (This directs you up to a detached garage with power). A path steers straight to the house which sits in an elevated position above the Slad Road. To the left of the property there is a high red brick wall with a glass house and sun terrace, and to the front a level lawn. The majority of the extensive grounds are sloping and are made up to woodland, paths, rockeries, flower and shrub borders. There are a variety of tree species. Work is required to restore the gardens back to their rightful glory. Views across to the valley towards Summer Street can be enjoyed from the house and gardens.
