An individual detached family house in a delightful rural location within walking distance of Nailsworth's cafes and shops, with outstanding views across the valley and 0.42 acre plot (Rear photo)
A detached period property originally built in the 1930’s and extended in recent years by the current owners with a large extension to the rear. Originally designed as a four bedroom house and therefore larger than a typical three bedrooms property, the current accommodation provides: Entrance Lobby, Sitting Room, Dining Room, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Utility Room and Cloakroom on the ground floor with three Bedrooms and a large Bathroom on the floor above. The property has the benefit of gas fired central heating and offers further scope to extend to the side if required (subject to the necessary planning permissions being obtained).
The property is situated in a lovely position, with the total plot measuring 0.42 of an acre. To the side of the property there is tandem parking for two vehicles which is immediately in front of a large Garage/Outbuilding with “up and over” door, electric light and power. To the other side of the house there is plenty of room to provide additional off road parking or to extend the house if required. At the rear is a generous paved sun terrace with steps leading to the very large gardens that are laid to lawn and border open farmland at the rear. The current owners purchased an additional strip of land to incorporate into their garden which is now a particular feature of this property. There are quite spectacular views across the valley with a well stocked orchard with apple and plum trees, plum, vegetable garden, utility area with greenhouse and garden sheds and comprehensive planting of spring bulbs, specimen trees and a variety of herbaceous plants and shrubs.
Rockness is a popular hamlet within walking distance of the centre of Nailsworth and is particularly sought after because of the sheltered location and south and easterly aspect. The town of Nailsworth has become an increasingly popular shopping destination within the Stroud Valleys benefiting from a large 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. 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. 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.
