Price guide £265,000
We at Peter Joy get really excited when we’re asked to market something a bit different, and this semi detached character property absolutely fits that description. The property is situated above Horsley, down a little lane set well away from passing traffic and road noise and offers prospective buyers the opportunity to improve a property to their own standards and taste, with accommodation arranged over two floors. A kitchen/dining room, sitting room with fireplace, inner hall, bathroom and bedroom are on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the hall to a lovely bedroom, with a useful attic above this. As you can see, the majority of the accommodation is on the ground floor, so it may be possible to extend over this level subject to necessary planning permission and building regulation approval.
The property benefits from a lovely garden that is mostly found to the side of the house. Access to the property is by foot only, with a right of way past the neighbouring cottage. The garden is level, with a pond, enclosed chicken run and growing beds. The plot is currently a little overrun with established colourful plants but is clearly a great space, with super views across open fields behind. There are gates leading into the fields and the woods but these accesses are unofficial and can’t be used by a new owner.
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 four 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.
