A substantial Cotswold stone detached character property situated in a lovely elevated location at sought after Newmarket with parking, sunny gardens and spacious character accommodation
A superb detached character home situated in a quiet, sunny location at popular Newmarket. This position, above Nailsworth, allows for easy access to the shops, amenities and thriving community of the town with woodland walks just up the lane and superb views across the valley to Shortwood. The property was originally built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone and has been the subject of comprehensive renovation and, more recently, thoughtful redecoration and refitting, with spacious accommodation arranged over three floors. An Entrance Hall, Cloakroom/WC, 28’ Kitchen/Breakfast Room with handmade bespoke units, 15’ Dining Room, 15’ Games Room/Study and 15’ Sitting Room are on the ground floor. A Landing, 16’ master Bedroom, family Bathroom with shower cubicle (with Jack and Jill access from the main bedroom) and another double Bedroom are on the first floor with two further double Bedrooms and another Bathroom at the top of the house. Character features and tasteful colour schemes are found throughout the property, with most windows making the most of the first class outlook.
The property benefits from parking and gardens. The parking area is at road level, for two cars, with a gated stairway leading down to the garden and the house. The garden is to the front of the house with a paved area with plenty of space for a table and chairs that opens up to a good lawn with established shrubs. There is a good shed at the bottom of the steps and raised beds at the far end of the garden with another sitting spot. This sunny garden is private and enjoys the lovely outlook over the Newmarket valley.
The popular hamlet of Newmarket is a sheltered valley within easy walking distance of both woodland walks and the centre of Nailsworth which 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. 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.
