A detached character home set in the popular village of Horsley, set on a lane away from the principal road but conveniently located for the community shop, church, school and public house. Blessed with an outstanding valley view the property has been carefully extended and now offers a first-class open plan kitchen/living/family/entertaining space with a vast picture window framing the view and doors opening onto the terrace. In addition to this there is a utility space with adjacent WC/cloakroom and a second spacious reception room on the ground floor which could serve multiple purposes, or be easily divided if necessary. The first floor offers a master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and stripped beams, two bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Hartley House boasts a southerly aspect and the most incredible valley view with the garden wrapping around the property to fully embrace this. Attached to the kitchen/family room is a stunning patio terrace with glass balustrade designed to make the most of daytime and evening sun. The garden itself is laid predominantly to lawn and sits slightly below the house, with a further section at the bottom which would lend itself perfectly to a patio space or vegetable garden. Adjacent to this there is an area housing two useful storage sheds and an off street parking bay for two vehicles.
The sought after village of Horsley boasts a shop, church and primary school. The lively Cotswold town of Nailsworth is approximately 1½ miles away and 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.
