The nearby A38 provides access to the larger centres of Thornbury and Dursley, which both have a wider range of shopping facilities including secondary schooling.

The property was originally constructed in the 1930's as local authority housing and has been in private ownership for a number of years. The property stands on a large plot of approximately 0.15 acre and has good sized gardens to both front and rear. There is shared pedestrian access which crosses the front of the property and onto the neighbouring property. To the rear there is a good sized rear garden, which has summerhouse, greenhouse, garden shed and backs onto open fields. The property has been well maintained and updated internally and is accessed via entrance hall leading to living room, having attractive wood flooring and wood burner and bay window to front. There is a good sized kitchen/diner and a rear porch/conservatory. On the first floor there are two good sized bedrooms along with large bathroom, which would have originally been the third bedroom. The property has previously had planning consent for a two storey extension to the side to provide a further two bedrooms and further good sized living room space. However, this has lapsed and would need renewing. The property must be seen to be fully appreciated and we suggest viewing at your earliest opportunity.
