Priory Way, Tetbury: Guide Price £850,000
A substantial and completely individual detached house set within delightful gardens approaching an acre in superb location within easy walking distance of the town centre. The property now requires modernisation but has huge potential within its large plot for extension and redevelopment.
DESCRIPTION This unique home occupies a prime position in the heart of Tetbury in a private location within a large plot approaching an acre in all. The property was built by Holborow & Sons of Tetbury in 1956 by the current owners as their own home and they have remained in residence ever since.

The house, which has been well maintained, is in near original condition and now offers tremendous scope for further extension and modernisation. Many original features remain today include stone fireplaces, parquet floors, an oak staircase, oak internal and external doors and the original kitchen and pantry. The light and airy accommodation extends to 2486 sq.ft and includes four bedrooms, a purpose built snooker room, two bathrooms and three reception rooms.
Externally, the house has a lovely gated entrance with ample driveway leading to a garage/workshop, further integral garage and parking area.

Within the rear garden is a heated covered swimming pool.
