Toadsmoor Road, Brimscombe, Stroud, GL5

Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
Occupying a wonderful Cotswold setting and nestled within the Toadsmoor Valley, just 0.7 miles approx. from the village shops, primary school and The Ship Inn, lies this detached Cotswold Stone house. In need of complete modernisation and set in just over 1/4 of an acre of garden, the property presents a very exciting development opportunity. The cottage currently provides two reception rooms, a kitchen, utility room, downstairs shower room, bathroom and five bedrooms. The property benefits from gas central heating. A generous garage with a workshop above offers yet further potential, along with the option of creating further off-road parking (subject to relevant permissions). The property was formerly two semi-detached houses with a two room annexe to the side and it was then converted into a single dwelling in the 1960's, so it could easily be turned back into two semi-detached properties if required. AGENTS NOTE - The property is unregistered. Property Ref: STR170216. Council Tax Band D.


Set in 1/4 of an acre with doors opening into the garage and space in front to park a car on road. Gardens extend to the three sides with the majority positioned to the rear. Bounded by Cotswold Stone walling and hedging, the generous plot enhances the opportunities for development/improvement and offers a blank canvass to the keen gardener. The garden attracts a variety of wildlife from squirrels to deer.


The A419 London Road passes through Brimscombe, a small country village built around the original shipping port that brought wealth and riches to the area. Although the Port no longer remains, Brimscombe still holds many remnants of its heritage with converted woollen mills which all run alongside the canal which still flows through the valley, sporadically intercepted by locks. Stroud District Council is currently leading restoration of a 6.7 mile length of the Cotswold Canals between Stonehouse and Brimscombe and this is thought to bring huge benefits in terms of economic investment, heritage, leisure and conservation to the area. The village has a local primary school and is in the catchment area for Thomas Keble secondary school. Further education offered at SGS college, The Royal Agricultural university in Cirencester and the University in Cheltenham. It also offers a village shop, part-time mobile post office, traditional Fish & Chip shop, hair salon and antiques shop. The area has excellent transport links with the A419 providing easy access to Stroud, M5, Cirencester and beyond as well as Stroud and Kemble railway stations for direct trains to London Paddington.
