Lovely elevated position above Nailsworth in popular Rockness for this first class Cotswold stone cottage with light, well presented accommodation, parking and a superb outlook across the valley
Stone Cutters Cottage is a beautifully presented end of terrace character property situated in a lovely elevated positon at popular Rockness. This location allows for a lovely outlook and easy access to the shops, amenities and thriving community of Nailsworth, with countryside walks on the doorstep. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone and has clearly been the subject of comprehensive improvement recently with character accommodation arranged over three floors.
A porch, sitting room with fireplace and good kitchen/dining room with a door that opens onto a sitting area and the garden are on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the sitting room to the first floor landing, with two bedrooms and a bathroom with modern fittings on this level. A traditional winder staircase leads up from the landing to another double bedroom, at the top of the house. The property has been carefully presented and tastefully decorated and every window enjoys a ‘green’ outlook, with the view across the valley at the front of particular merit.
The property benefits from gardens at the front and rear and a parking space. The parking space is at the front of the house, with steps leading up to the front door past a front lawn that looks out over the valley. The rear garden slopes up away from the house, with a sitting spot with space for a table and chairs behind the kitchen and steps up through the lawn to the top of the plot. There is an excellent studio/garden room here which is insulated with power and light.
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.
