We are real estate stalking again and this time we are bringing you a cool mid-19th century home renewed by London-based theater designer, Niki Turner. This spectacular 3,499 square foot, five-bedroom dwelling is located near the heart of of the popular Gloucestershire town of Stroud. The home was originally a spacious cloth merchant’s villa, now the structure has been separated into two semi-detached properties. The architecture is predominantly in the French Baroque style, featuring stunning detailing on the exterior facade. This includes a mansard roof, a moulded eaves cornice, circular oeil-de-boeuf windows and paired Tuscan columns.

This striking property was spotted listed for sale on Modern House, asking price is $898,170 USD.

The elaborate architecture on the exterior has been offset by the designer with simple, spacious interiors. This is most apparent in the open plan kitchen/dining room area, which once served as the home’s billiard hall. Characterized by soaring ceilings, exposed rafters and a large skylight that feels like an industrial conversion.

With an enormous amount of space in this area, the designer capitalized on it; integrating a mezzanine level that encompasses a study area above the kitchen. The kitchen showcases slate countertops and an impressive wood pellet, three-oven range cooker. The beautiful dining area spills out onto a small conservatory, which lead into a verdant garden.

A spacious living room offers a fabulous bay window with high ceilings and a wood burning fireplace. The ceiling and wall panels features exquisite period detailing. Also on the main level, at the rear of the dwelling, is a versatile studio space illuminated by skylights. A recently added entrance porch adds to the overall beauty of this home, inviting visitors inside.

On the first level, you will find three bedrooms, one of which is a spacious master bedroom retreat. A family bathroom features notable bespoke fittings that are formed from copper piping.

On the second level there are two additional bedrooms, one with a wonderful circular oeil-de-boeuf window, and a shower room. There are magnificent views from this level, sweeping over the Slad Valley to the rear of the house.
