A beautifully presented detached Cotswold stone cottage situated in a lovely elevated spot above Nailsworth in popular Horsley with a detached garage, gardens and light characterful accommodation
A beautifully presented detached character property situated in popular Downend, Horsley. This location within this quiet, rural hamlet above Nailsworth allows for easy access to the shops and amenities of the town with countryside walks just up the lane. The property is built from Cotswold stone and has clearly been the subject of comprehensive improvement in recent years, with accommodation arranged over three floors.
One walks into an entrance hall and through into a first class 19’ kitchen/dining room. This room has recently been refurbished, with lovely handmade kitchen units, and a feature range set into the fireplace. A 15’ sitting room with fireplace and wood burning stove and useful utility room are also found on this floor, with a winding wooden staircase leading up from the kitchen to the first floor. A landing, three bedrooms and a bathroom are on the first floor, with two staircases at either end of the landing climbing up to the master bedroom room and guest bedrooms respectively, both with en suite shower rooms.
The property benefits from parking, a detached stone built garage and landscaped gardens. A Cotswold stone wall defines the boundary with the lane at the front, with a pretty wooden porch at the side of the house, covering the handsome old front door. The drive is to the side of the house, with the garage behind. This has double doors to the front but isn’t big enough to house a large car. A path leads around to the rear of the house and a wood store, with steps leading up into the garden that can also be accessed from the house at first floor level. This area has been terraced and landscaped, with a paved sitting area, borders stocked with a variety of plants, a level lawn and another terrace above with a view out across the valley past the side of the property.
The village of Horsley has a popular village school, a newly opened Public House and an award winning community shop. Horsley lies within approximately one mile of Nailsworth, a popular shopping destination within the Stroud Valleys benefiting from a large and comprehensive selection of speciality shops including Williams Food Hall, the famous Hobbs House Bakery, various clothing and gift shops, several cafes and a good selection of very well regarded restaurants. In addition to this the town currently benefits from three supermarkets, free parking and both state and private schooling within the area. Junctions of the M4 and M5 motorways are within easy reach and railway stations at Stroud (4 miles) and Kemble (10 miles) provide main line services to Gloucester, Swindon and London Paddington.
