Located within the centre of the village, opposite the local playing fields, this attached stone built period home offers an array of period features with spacious rooms and off street parking. As illustrated on the floorplan, the property is entered via a porch leading into the sitting room with stone flooring and fireplace housing a wood burning stove. The kitchen/breakfast room offers a range of built-in units including a dishwasher and utility area together with access to the rear, south-facing gardens. A spacious dining room, which could easily double up as a games room or ground floor bedroom, is also located on this level. On the first floor there are two equally lovely bedrooms with one offering either a potential walk in wardrobe/dressing/study area and the other allowing for lovely views towards Selsley common. These rooms are serviced by the stylish family bathroom. On the second floor, the existing master bedroom could easily be thought of as two rooms with its dividing beams, built-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room (with the potential to extend, subject to the necessary consents).
A gravelled area, where the current owners park, is located to the front of the house whilst split level gardens are located to the rear together with a home office and a garden shed. The lower garden provides a lawned area with raised shrubs and flower beds.
The property is most easily found by leaving Stroud on the A419 towards the M5 motorway. Continue past Sainsbury's onto the Ebley Bypass in the direction of the M5. After a short distance, upon reaching the traffic lights at Ryeford, turn left signposted Leonard Stanley and Kings Stanley. Continue on this road and take the turning to the left at the mini-roundabout by The Kings Head. Continue for a short distance and the property can be found on the right hand side opposite the village playing field and on the corner of Shute Street.
Kings Stanley is situated between Stroud and Junction 13 of the M5 motorway, just under the spectacular Cotswold escrpment. It is within commuting distance of a range of towns and cities including Cheltenham, Cirencester and Bristol. The village, which has very early origins, has continued to adapt with new properties being added, so is able to support a good range of local services including a supermarket/post office and beauty salon. The village has a very strong community spirit, a village hall and good access to the extensive network of public footpaths including the Cotswold Way, which cross the adjacent countryside, making it great for dog walkers and country lovers.
Communications are excellent. From nearby Stonehouse and Cam/Dursley stations there are regular train services to London Paddington and Bristol Temple Meads, while Stroud is the regional centre for the area with three major supermarkets. Kings Stanley has a popular primary school and there is a good choice of secondary schools, both in the state and private sectors, within easy reach.
