Set in delightful grounds with views to the front and a wealth of established gardens and wonderful protected trees.

Internally, stairs lead to the first floor with accommodation over two floors. From the landing you have storage space and door leading into a very spacious sitting and dining room. Three windows provide a wealth of light to the room with door leading to the kitchen. Stairs lead to the first floor with a very useful space under stairs. This could be an ideal study area.

The best things about living at Stone Manor are the community, the location and the beautiful gardens. There is a vibrant mix of people, who are very welcoming, friendly and who look out for each other. The location is brilliant as it is walkable to town, but far enough away so that it's actually very "peaceful up here". "As a keen hiker I've loved having such beautiful walks on the doorstep".
The gardens offer great useable social space directly outside the property. The grounds to the front have benches, picnic tables and a barbecue area. Perfect for any summers day while looking across the valley to Butterow and Rodborough. Beautiful walks just across the road into a nature reserve, and lovely walks to The Heavens while taking in the stunning scenery. Stone Manor is well regarded and has a great community feel. Situated just off Bisley Road which is locally known as Old Stroud. Within short walk of the local Theatre, a few convenience stores, not to mention Toni's Kitchen at Bisley House in Middle Street and the well-regarded public house called the Crown and Sceptre, which holds many events. Stone Manor sits just above the centre of Stroud town and Railway station. Walking distance around 15 minutes into the centre. Also a wealth of bigger stores/supermarkets on the outskirts. Not forgetting the famous weekly Farmers Market and newly completed indoor Five Valleys shopping complex. With a wealth of independent shops in the town. There are three primary schools less than one mile away from the property all with a good Ofsted report and also one outstanding. As for secondary schools, there are two grammar schools just over a mile away – Stroud High and Marling School. The closest state schools are Archway and Thomas Keble, "both having an Ofsted rating of good."
