Old Bristol Road
A Grade II Listed character property in the heart of popular Nailsworth in need of improvement with flexible character accommodation, a garden and a great outlook over the town
A detached Grade II listed character property just above the Nailsworth centre. This location is very much part of the thriving local community and allows for easy access to the shops and amenities of the town with countryside walks just up the road. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone under a pitched roof and has been extended in the past, with accommodation arranged over four floors. The ground floor currently offers living space over one level, with an entrance hall, double bedroom, shower room, kitchen and sitting/dining room here. There are several useful basement rooms below. A staircase leads up from the hall to the first and second floors. These areas need improvement, but could potentially offer a first floor sitting room with balcony, bathroom, and four bedrooms. The balcony and windows at the rear of the property enjoy a super outlook over the chimney pots of Nailsworth. The property currently has mixed residential/business use (D1) and is in need of some renovation but offers prospective buyers the opportunity to create either one large home, annexed accommodation (subject to planning) or, given the propertys previous use as a dentists surgery, a work/live space.
The interior complemented by a small parking space, front garden and courtyard at the rear. The small parking space is by the road with space enough for an original mini or motorbikes, but it may be possible to make this larger subject to the relevant consents. A path leads down to the house, with the sloping garden to either side. There is a disused raised pond to the front of the house, and prospective buyers will probably create a sitting area here. The courtyard is at the rear of the house, with the access from the basement level and around the side of the house. This area takes in the great view over the town.
The house is very conveniently situated within walking distance of the centre of Nailsworth which has become an increasingly popular shopping destination within the Stroud Valleys. The town benefits from a large selection of speciality shops including Williams Food Hall, the famous Hobbs House Bakery, The Yellow Lighted Bookshop, various clothing and gift shops, several cafes and a good selection of very well regarded restaurants. Nailsworth is also home to Forest Green Rovers Football Club where there is a modern leisure/fitness centre and both state and private schooling within the area. Bus services connect with Stroud, some four miles away, where there is a more comprehensive selection of shopping, educational and leisure facilities. 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.
