A well presented older style end of terrace property in a popular semi rural position above Nailsworth town centre with outstanding views, flexible accommodation and lovely gardens
A lovely end of terrace older style home in a lovely semi rural location at popular Shortwood. This quiet location above Nailsworth allows for a superb view across the Newmartket valley and easy access to the shops and amenities of the town. The property was built in the 1930’s and has been carefully improved in recent years, with flexible accommodation arranged over three floors.
An entrance hall, sitting room with wood burning stove and kitchen/dining room are on the ground floor, with a landing, two good bedrooms and a bathroom with separate shower cubicle above, on the first floor. A useful lower ground floor is below the kitchen and this could be used as a garden room, third bedroom or studio work space. The property was the subject of an improvement grant and now benefits from solar panels with a high rate feed in tariff, internal insulation and lovely double glazed hardwood windows with monkey tail handles that all enjoy a ‘green’ outlook.
The front and rear gardens are a particular feature, with a large paved terrace at the rear and a carefully planted edible garden below with established apple, pear, cherry, greengage and cobnut trees, and a multitude of culinary shrubs and plants including gooseberry and redcurrant bushes and rhubarb plants. There is a useful greenhouse and a timber built shed plus a lower decked seating area which enjoys outstanding views over open farmland and the Newmarket Valley. The pretty front garden is well stocked in a cottage style.
Nailsworth has become an increasingly popular shopping destination within the Stroud Valleys benefiting from a large and comprehensive 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 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.
The property was the subject of the Stroud 2050 grant, and has benefitted from increased insulation levels and solar panels. Any prospective buyer will take on the repayment of the solar panels but this is offset against the income they generate. A pedestrian right of way exists across the back garden for the benefit of the occupants of the terrace.
