Vendor’s thoughts: "21 The Avenue has been such a happy family home for the last eight years. We moved in appreciating its light rooms, generous garden and convenient location but have grown to love its position at the heart of a proper Shirley-Hughes-style community, surrounded by friends and children. We walk to a great nursery and school (Sunflowers and Powell’s) and make good use of St Michael’s Park for all our tennis, footie, cricket, climbing needs. We love that we’re in town but the back garden is surrounded by mature trees and feels really leafy and private. Since we opened up the back of the house, the living space feels so well connected to the garden and is perfect for parties, of which there have been many. We will miss it!"
In a nutshell: Substantial four-storey Townhouse with fabulous entertaining space, beautifully proportioned rooms, contemporary living in a superb location.
21 The Avenue is located on one of Cirencester’s most prestigious roads. Close to the town centre with all its amenities, yet situated on a quiet street
close to St Michael’s Park, this unique family home occupies the perfect spot.

21 The Avenue’s welcoming blue front door opens onto a hallway with exquisite parquet flooring which runs throughout the ground floor. On entering the impressive open plan kitchen dining room, one is immediately struck by the abundance of natural light from the large sash window and the floor to ceiling folding French doors which open on to the garden. This is a truly wonderful space for entertaining and family life. The contemporary kitchen with double Smeg oven, polished concrete surfaces, central island and bespoke fitted units, is the heart of the house. A spacious cloakroom and boot room, overlooking the garden, is a useful addition to the ground floor.
The lower ground provides a homely and versatile living space. The sitting room/ media room features a beautiful original flagstone floor with underfloor heating, an open fireplace and a discreet home cinema, with an extremely convenient laundry tucked away in the old coalhole. The guest double bedroom with en suite shower room ensures privacy and comfort for guests. French doors give on to steps leading to the garden.
On the first floor the drawing room, with its two sash windows, is a bright and peaceful space. It is beautifully proportioned with an open fireplace. The remaining space on the first and second floors is made up of three large double bedrooms with lovely rooftop or garden views and a family bathroom.
Outside, the walled garden is a haven of tranquillity. A thoughtfully laid out terrace overlooks a quaint lawn, surrounded by herbaceous borders, mature trees, raised vegetables beds and a decked area near the handy garden shed. The French folding doors from the kitchen allow for true indoor/outdoor living during the warmer months.
This gorgeous townhouse has been remodelled and refurbished, enhancing the feeling of space and light, and creating a warm and inviting home with double glazed timber sash windows throughout.
