Description

A well presented ground floor apartment situated in the prestigious Dunkirk Mills development. The location, on the outskirts of Nailsworth, allows for easy access to the shops and amenities of the town with country walks on the doorstep. Stroud train station is only a ten minute drive from the property and has a direct line into London Paddington in as little as 90 minutes. Areas of Dunkirk Mills date back to as early as 1798 and these buildings have vast history and immense character throughout. The original mill buildings were converted to offer residential accommodation about 30 years ago. This particular apartment has large feature windows offering stunning views over the Nailsworth Stream and the historic sluice gate at the back of the mill and towards a lovely wooded area. The stream actually runs right under the apartment and the soothing sound of rushing water can be enjoyed in all the rooms. There are character features
throughout the apartment, with a wealth of beams and exposed brickwork in the sitting room and exposed brickwork and large windows overlooking the stream in both the bedrooms. The single storey accommodation comprises an entrance hall, useful cupboard housing washing machine, kitchen with built-in oven and fridge, a lovely light sitting room, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, further bedroom and shower room. Both the bedrooms benefit from built in storage. Although the apartment is on the ground floor, there are stairs up from the communal hallway to the property. There is a lift situated right next to the apartment.

Location

“What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare?” – these are the opening lines of the world-famous poem Leisure by W H Davies, written in 1911 while he was living in a cottage at Watledge. Today, Nailsworth has changed a great deal since Davies’ time, but there is still much to stand and stare at in the bustling town centre, 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.
