Property: 55 Green Lane, Hucclecote, Gloucester, GL3 3QX

Location: This property is situated within Hucclecote – a conservation area on the outskirts of Gloucester and one of the city’s most desirable areas to live. The close proximity to the M5 makes it ideal for commuters, with plenty of amenities nearby, including two local schools, a doctor’s surgery, library and hair salon.

Through the keyhole: From its eye-catching red front door to the stained glass windows and herringbone tiled floor, the charming Edwardian features are the star of the show from the moment you step inside, with updates like double glazing making this a modern family home.

The sprawling ground floor has a dual aspect sitting room with French doors to the garden, another large reception room as well as a dining room, both with gorgeous feature fireplaces. There’s also a downstairs cloakroom.

The kitchen has plenty of cupboard and worktop space, a double oven and gas hob, with a separate utility room that has its own sink and direct access into the garden.

Upstairs are six spacious bedrooms, a large family bathroom and a shower room. The master bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom. Bedrooms two, three, four and five are all doubles – with bedroom five currently being used as a sewing room, while bedroom six is the only single and doubles up as a home office space.

Outside, there is a double garage and driveway to the front, while the gardens are almost a third of an acre in size, with flower beds, mature trees and plenty of space for gardeners to grow their own. There’s also a paved patio area that’s perfect for alfresco entertaining.

Price: £750,000.

SoGlos loves: This huge property offers so much space for growing families. From the huge back garden with plenty of room to run around, to its six large bedrooms that offer flexible spaces that could work as a playroom, home office, or even a den for older kids and teens. Plus, the master bedroom’s en-suite bathroom has its own bath tub to sink into with a glass of wine once the little ones have gone to bed.
