Looking for your first home or retiring and wanting a small space to maintain? Look no further.
Light and airy maisonette on the edge of Westrip with distant views throughout. This property has been loved for over 14 years by the owner. Private entrance with all accommodation on the first floor.
Fitted kitchen with cooker and space for further appliances and a lovely view across to Selsley.
A good sized sitting room with dining area, Karndean flooring and lovely views to Rodborough Fort and Spillmans can be enjoyed from a bay window which is a perfect window seat.
A double bedroom with fitted wardrobes having views up to Randwick woods.
Spacious bathroom suite complete with airing cupboard that the current owner houses a tumble dryer and further storage for linen.
The current owner has added new electric ceramic radiators, some of which are freestanding. They have sensors which will change temperature if a window is open making them very economical to run.
To the side of the property, a gate leads into your own private garden, having lawned area with a raised decked sun terrace, a good sized shed, a gate to an enclosed bin store and a raised bed with planting. It is a great sun spot.
The owner of this property needs to find an onward purchase.
The vendor would like to help a first time buyer get on the housing ladder or assist a buyer looking to downsize. She does not wish to sell to an investor who is looking to rent the property out.
The property is leasehold with a lease of 999 years and 956 years remaining. There are no management costs.
There is no operational management company and no ground rent payable. On that basis the lease will dictate the terms of the Landlord and Tenant responsibilities. When the vendor bought the property, the solicitor acting suggested that the Vendor has responsibility to insure and repair. We also understand from the vendor she shares any joint costs of the property with the owner on the ground floor.
A great selection of local food stores and a supermarket as well as other retail outlets all within a short distance from the property. A great selection of walks up to Randwick woods, Westrip, Standish or along the canal make it a great place to live.
Located on the southern slope of Randwick Hill, the area underwent massive expansion in the second half of the 20th century with the addition of private housing estates. It is now contiguous with the neighbouring settlements of Ebley, Cainscross and Paganhill and hence with the conurbation of Stroud itself.
The meeting point of five valleys, the historic town of Stroud is a well-known centre for arts and crafts as well as its weekly Farmers Market; voted the best in the country. An annual textile festival is held in the town as well as various exhibitions at the Subscription Rooms and at The Museum in the Park. Stroud has good transport links with London Paddington by train and Bath and Bristol by car.
There are lots of great things about where we live, from the beautiful walks to the local community. You can be walking in beautiful woodland in less than ten minutes with picturesque views to the River Severn on one side and across the whole of Stroud on the other. Equally there are beautiful walks down to the canal or through the local vineyard, all right on the doorstep.
We have always loved the sense of community in the area and whenever there has been a problem there has always been a great neighbour to call on to lend a helping hand.
The flat is in a great location, close enough to town that you can walk (takes less than 30 minutes) but far enough away to feel like you are more on the edge of the countryside. Plus you can always grab the bus into town as it stops right outside the garden!
The main thing that drew us to this flat was the garden, which when we first moved in was a patch of grass, a shed and a single tree. And although little has changed, a few plants here and there, some fencing, it is a peaceful place, you feel like you are tucked away from the world in your own secret garden.
And finally there are the beautiful views from the flat, I love to sit with a cup of tea and watch the weather roll across the valley on a cold wet day or equally when its hot and the windows are wide open listen to the birds singing, and the horses riding by, it really is a wonderful place to live.
