Description

Grove House is a substantial detached cotswold stone family home in a good location on the edge of town. Converted from two dwellings, a three storey house and an adjoining two storey cottage, both are mid/late eighteenth century and are built in traditional cotswold stone with pitched stone tiled roofs. Grove House is south facing and looks across the valley to the town below and to the open woods and countryside of the AONB. The property is accessed via a private lane which serves four neighbouring houses before dead ending at a turning point. The location is extremely quiet and private however you can walk into town in five minutes or so. The house has four/five bedrooms, two/three receptions, three bathrooms, a main kitchen, a kitchenette, utility room, storeroom, and a single garage. The owners currently have the accommodation arranged as two sitting rooms, a dining room, two studies and two bedrooms, however that can easily be changed. All rooms are very good sizes.

The timber front door leads into a dining room with working Victorian fireplace and oak flooring. The oak flooring continues though into the sitting room where there is a cut stone fireplace with cast iron log burning stove. Off the the dining room there is a contemporary, high quality custom designed kitchen with a good size utility off. A staircase leads up from the dining room to the first floor, with a landing accessing the principal bedroom with dressing room and en-suite shower room, bedroom two (currently used as a study) and the family bathroom. A secondary staircase accesses a guest suite comprising of a bedroom a kitchenette and shower room. The guest suite can be accessed from bedroom two and has its own door from the garden. On the second floor there are two generous rooms (currently a study and second sitting room) with exposed beams and oak flooring. There is another door to the garden from this floor.

Outside

There is a sweeping driveway from the lane leading to a parking area for several cars and a single integral garage. At the front of the cottage there is a large sunny terrace ideal for morning coffee or evening drinks, enjoying the southerly aspect and stunning views. There is a generous but manageable garden to the side and rear with raised vegetable beds, mature fruit trees and a level entertaining space ideal for barbeques.

Location

Nailsworth is home to many independent businesses, selling everything from artisan bread, meat and fish to stationery, fashion and handmade jewellery. Nestling at the bottom of steep wooded hills, Nailsworth is now an attractive and vibrant shopping destination, with a large selection of interesting speciality shops and cafes, including the famous Williams Food Hall and Hobbs House Bakery. It is a quirky and friendly town, with a good selection of restaurants, as well as three supermarkets, a regular farmers’ market and a ‘green’ football club. Nailsworth is well positioned for both town and country. Climb the steep ‘W’ hill out of town and you find yourself on acres of stunning National Trust common land, home to a prestigious golf course. The town is also on the doorstep of beautiful Woodchester Park, with miles of woodland walks and secluded lakes. Yet just four miles away is Stroud, with more comprehensive shopping, educational and leisure facilities, connected by bus services. 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.
