We live in a beautiful part of the world, and are lucky enough to visit homes in lovely locations every day. Every so often though, we're asked to market something in an area that's a little bit special, and Wallow Green, near Horsley, is absolutely one of those places. Situated high above Nailsworth, this superb rural location is surrounded by fields but isn't that far from the shops and amenities of the town, with a good primary school, community owned shop and pub a little closer at Horsley. This particular property is set up from the lane at the end of a pretty Cotswold stone terrace. It has been sympathetically extended in the past and, more recently, comprehensively improved by the current owner. The resulting property is a stylish, light filled home full of character features and lovely design touches. An entrance hall and shower room are the first spaces one finds, and this leads through into a first class kitchen/family room. This great living area has been carefully thought out, with doors that open onto the rear garden and kitchen units finished with some beautiful book matched veneer courtesy of the well regarded Auspicious Furniture, of Nailsworth. A cosy, traditional sitting room with fireplace housing Charlton & Jenerick wood burning stove is also on this level, with further accommodation on the lower ground floor. This level is currently used as an annexe, with a bedroom and kitchen, and served by the shower room in the hall above, but could easily be used as another reception room and a utility room. A staircase leads up from the sitting room to the first floor, with a landing, two bedrooms, study/bedroom and a bathroom on this floor. A further double bedroom is at the top of the house, on the second floor. Tasteful décor is found throughout, and every window enjoys a 'green' outlook.


You'd almost expect any garden to be a let down after walking through the cottage, but that certainly isn't the case here. It's the perfect setting for a character home like this - surrounded by fields and set well away from road noise. The parking is at the front of the property, with space to park several cars. A couple of steps lead down to the front door, with the majority of the garden at the rear. There is a gated side access that leads into this area and this opens out onto a superb level plot. There is a large sunken patio by the house, with doors that open from the kitchen/family room, connecting these two spaces. A couple of steps take you onto the level lawn. This a great garden, stocked with established, interesting plants and mature trees, with a sitting spot, defined by a stone wall, that looks out onto open land beyond the garden. Other noteworthy features include a pond, a pizza oven and a useful shed. There is also a superb detached studio building, set at the bottom of the garden. This is insulated and double glazed, with power and light and a wood burning stove, This is bound to appeal to buyers looking for that now essential work from home space, although the view may prove a little distracting!


Wallow Green is a delightful rural hamlet on the outskirts of the village of Horsley. This tranquil situation provides for plenty of walks across the surrounding countryside and the town of Nailsworth is within two miles and benefits 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. 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.
