22 Gloucester Street is a beautifully presented three bedroom stucco fronted Cotswold stone townhouse in the heart of Cirencester. Grade II Listed, the house dates from the 19th Century.
First impressions on entering through the front door and stepping into the boot room are that this is a house that has been lovingly tended to and very thoughtfully modernised.
Downstairs, the property has been extended by the current vendors and has a superb modern kitchen/ breakfast room, with a row of Velux windows and partial glass ceiling allowing an abundance of natural light to flood in. This room with exposed beams, wood-panelling and limestone tiles is, without doubt, the heart of the house. There is underfloor heating throughout the downstairs accommodation, flowing through to the sitting room, again, with an abundance of period features including an internal picture window through to the boot room, wooden floorboards, beautiful sash windows and an open fireplace.
Upstairs, laid out over two floors, are three bedrooms and a contemporary family bathroom. The stunning period features continue with superb sash windows in the double rooms and exposed floorboards in the master bedroom.
From the back of the house, a set of oak French doors open onto the gravelled terrace area, which lends itself perfectly to outside dining and entertaining. This, in turn, leads on to a level lawned area, with herbaceous borders and an apple tree. At the rear of the garden is a home office which is constructed of Cotswold stone and Oak under a slate roof. This excellent space could equally serve as a studio/ home gym, is fully insulated and has electricity and fibre optic broadband. There is also a garden shed to the rear with electricity.
This home is welcoming, light, spacious and contemporary and has all the charm and character you could hope for with a period property.
N.B. No’s 20,18 and 16 share a Right of Way to the rear of the property.
Services: Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage. Gas-fired central heating.
