The Furrows is located on an exclusive road on the outskirts of the vibrant market town of Dursley, with its abundance of amenities. The house itself retains a country feel, helped by the green setting to the front and rear as well as the single lane access. Originally built in the 1930's the house retains a number of period features from this much loved architectural period, well regarded for its quality of build and bespoke crafting. The house has been greatly enhanced since its original construction, with both a sympathetic extension and the addition of the garaging with office above. Both these have added to the usability of the house, particularly the large kitchen and principal suite. There is a good amount of reception rooms, ideal for family life, but also great entertaining spaces, such as the heart of the home - the kitchen/dining room. This has been fully fitted with an array of solid wood units, from Stroud Joinery, as well as quality integrated appliances and space for large American fridge/freezer and range cooker. There is ample space for a large table and chairs and with 2 sets of bi-fold doors – great involvement with the outside. The kitchen is backed up with a walk-in utility room. The bedrooms all have superb views over either the formal gardens or the open field and distant views to the front. The principal suite is an opulent space, with vaulted ceilings adding to the overall feel and enjoying a large walk-in dressing room and recently re-fitted luxury en-suite bathroom.

Outside

It is the setting and grounds that make the house so special. The gardens, which are about 1.5 acres have been a labour of love for the current owners, who have spent considerable time and energy crafting the superb grounds. They have integrated large flower and herbaceous beds which enjoy an abundance of seasonal colour. Given the houses age and prominence, the garden also has an array of matures trees with many rare examples found throughout, as well as a pond and large open lawns. There is an extensive patio outside of the kitchen allowing easy al fresco dining, with an additional area of decking and hot tub

To the front are two recently installed electric gates providing in-out driving with ample extra parking. The double garage, with electric opening doors also has large office space above, ideal for home working.
