An entrance porch, inner hall, cloakroom/W.c, 19′ kitchen/breakfast room with contemporary units, 22′ sitting room with Inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, double glazed conservatory, also with wood burning stove and space for a dining table and chairs and rear lobby with useful walk in store are on the ground floor.

Every window enjoys a pleasant outlook, with character features found throughout the older part of the house.
The good gardens have been landscaped, planted and terraced to take advantage of the spectacular views across the valley, with the water meadow and stream below. There is a level lawn at the front of the house, with steps leading down to a lower terraced area. A path leads along the front of the property where steps lead up to a secluded sitting area, with mature trees and well planted borders found around the plot.
Washpool is a tranquil hamlet within the parish of Horsley and is 1½ miles from the town of Nailsworth which 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. In addition to this the town currently benefits from three supermarkets, free parking and both state and private schooling in the area. Nailsworth is also home to Forest Green Rovers Football Club where there is a modern leisure/fitness centre. Bus services connect with Stroud, some 4 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.
