An imposing Grade II listed character property in a prominent position overlooking Nailsworth town with just under 3000 square ft. of light, spacious accommodation and 0.82 acres of gardens and ground
This attractive Grade II Listed Georgian family home is in a prime location overlooking Nailsworth. This location is very much part of the thriving local community, with the shops and amenities of the town on your doorstep, and hundreds of acres on National Trust land and Beaudesert Park School found just up the hill. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone and has clearly been the subject of careful, clever improvement over the last few years, with almost 3000 square ft. of spacious, flexible accommodation arranged over four floors. One walks into a light 17′ entrance hall. There is a playroom on the right that could be used as a study, a cloakroom/WC and a doorway leading through into the kitchen/breakfast room. This space is beautifully presented, with bespoke units by Woodchester cabinet makers, clever hidden larder area and utility room. A first class 17′ drawing room is beyond the kitchen. This flexible room is currently furnished as a statement dining room but could also be used as a sitting room, as there is room to eat in the kitchen. A staircase leads up from the hall to a good landing, with a flexible 23′ family room and the master suite with a generous double bedroom, dressing room and en-suite shower room found on this floor. Two further double bedrooms, one with walk in wardrobe en-suite facilities, a family bathroom and a separate WC are on the second floor, with another double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and useful storage area at the top of the house. High ceilings, sash windows and character features of the period are found throughout the house, and the versatile layout could have a number of uses and could well appeal to buyers looking to accommodate relatives or create space for holiday letting or Air BnB guests.
The property is approached through electric wrought iron gates and a shared driveway leads to both Fountain House and the adjoining property, with the feature fountain in front of the house. The front garden is level and enclosed, with a path leading to the pretty porch, and provides a useful enclosed space to either sit and enjoy the outlook or for smaller children to play. The gardens and grounds then stretch up to the side of the property, with a sloping lawn and long gravelled driveway leading up to the top of the plot. There are steps up the bank behind the garden that lead up to a lovely woodland area. This space is populated with trees and wild garlic and is a great natural playground, with a hidden den and an old summer house. A spacious roof terrace is accessed from a bedroom on the second floor, from which to enjoy the superb view across the valley. We understand that the total plot is approximately 0.82 acres
