Dating from the 19th Century with some older origins, this impressive six-bedroom home is set back off Albion Street, well away from passing traffic and is approached through double wrought iron gates set between stone pillars.
The accommodation is beautifully presented with high ceilings and a lovely light and airy feel, in all extending to just under 4,200 square feet of accommodation arranged over three floors with useful cellar below.
There is a stone pillared canopy porch opening to the spacious main hall with access to the drawing room, sitting room and dining room, all well-proportioned reception rooms. The garden room is located to the rear of the house, a lovely room with double glazed doors opening on to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a custom made range of floor and wall mounted cupboards with granite work surfaces over, incorporates space for a range style cooker. There is also a back kitchen/rear hall with further storage cupboards, this is where the twin central heating boilers are located.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, an en-suite bathroom and dressing room, and an elegant family bathroom. Above, there are three more double bedrooms (although one is currently being used as a study), a dressing room and a shower room.
In front of the house there is a wide block paved drive/turning circle, with a central island providing plenty of parking. A spur from the drive continues on to a further parking area where there is a substantial tandem garage and workshop. Flanking the drive there is a deep raised flower and shrub border retained by low stone walls and interspersed by a number of fine mature trees. There are raised areas of lawn either side of the turning circle with a stand of young cherry trees, rose beds and an ornamental pond. Directly in front of the kitchen there is a paved terrace sheltered by a high stone wall, which provides an ideal place for outside dining. Behind the house there is another paved terrace immediately to the rear from which semi-circular stone steps lead up to a lawn. A path and steps lead under two arbors to a large vegetable/flower garden with gravelled walkways, clipped box hedges and a circular wrought iron Gothic gazebo. There are various useful sheds at the end of the garden.
Stratton is situated on the northern edge of Cirencester, between Gloucester and Cheltenham roads, separated from the town by water meadows on either side of the River Churn. As such it has its own identity and Albion Street is one of its oldest parts, characterised by attractive period properties.
