Details

Description

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. 1 Coopers Mill is located at the southerly end of this grade II listed complex and has the advantage of its own private entrance overlooking the stream as well as the communal entrance located at the front of the building. Arranged over two floors this very attractive apartment retains a great deal of charm and character features with light and airy accommodation. Front door leading into hallway with exposed stone walls and spiral staircase to the first floor, two bedrooms (master bedroom with built-in double wardrobe) and shower room are on the ground floor with a spiral staircase leading up to a stunning open plan sitting room/dining room with own private door to the outside, attractive leaded light window
with window shutters and window seat overlooking the grounds. The modern kitchen units incorporate an electric hob and new electric oven.

There are extensive communal grounds for residents to enjoy, with a BBQ area, mill pond and wildlife sanctuary. There is also access to the cycle track/footpath, which takes you to Nailsworth and Stroud.

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.
