Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
A very rare opportunity to purchase a substantial detached period house built in the Edwardian style, retaining many character quality features associated with this grand period of construction. The property now requires updating and refurbishment providing tremendous potential to be improved and modernised to own personal taste and specification. The accommodation is generous with large room sizes which could be divided to create more bedroom space if required and scope for further extension (subject to planning permission and building regulations approval). It is amazing how many of the fabulous original features have been retained including original fireplaces, corniced ceilings, panelled doors, parquet flooring; and sash and stained glass windows. There are three main reception rooms and the breakfast room has a built-in original dresser and walk-in shelved pantry cupboard. The house, being in its wonderful original format provides a blank canvass for those seeking to create a substantial and larger family home with large gardens and detached garage.

Communications to the larger centres of Bristol, Gloucester and Cheltenham are excellent via the A38 and M5 motorway and there is a main line train station at Box Road, Cam; serving Bristol and London (Paddington) via Gloucester.
