Guide price £350,000

Round Cottage In Stroud
The unique Grade II listed Round House is a fairytale property that wouldn't be out of place in a storybook. It is one of five such houses, built in the 1790’s on the banks of the now disused Thames and Severn Canal for the linesmen that worked there. The horses were originally stabled on the ground floor, and the family lived on the floors above.

This unique detached home has been carefully and sympathetically renovated to provide accommodation with enormous character and retains a wealth of period features such as oak beamed ceilings, a Georgian range, Gothic style windows and unique stained glass windows. A child's silk shoe, hidden in the house since it was built, was rediscovered when the house was modernised and also remains in place for good fortune for all future owners.

The property has two public rooms, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms (one en-suite) but it may be possible to extend subject to planning permission. There's also a useful garage and parking space.

The roundhouse is set in an idyllic garden next to the duck pond, of which a good proportion belongs to the Round House. The owners have both fishing and mooring rights.

Recently reduced in price this is a well presented property in the beautiful Golden Valley, which is simply oozing with charm.
