A superb opportunity to renovate a handsome detached Cotswold stone house in an elevated position within the popular area of Woodchester with c.4000 sq. ft of living space, garden and lovely views
A handsome detached period property in an elevated country lane located within Woodchester. This location, between Nailsworth and Stroud, allows for easy access to the shops and amenities of both towns with country walks on the door step and a lovely view across the Woodchester valley. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone and was presumably built in the mid 1800’s, at the same time as the neighbouring Church. We understand that the property has had several uses in the past and was home to the Friars for some twenty years until
1985. The property is now in need of complete renovation, but offers prospective buyers a unique opportunity to create a fantastic family home. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and retains much of the original character of the building. A hall with arched entrance and tessellated tiled floor, sitting room, connecting dining room and kitchen, utility room, boot room and study are found on the ground floor. Prospective buyers will probably change the uses of the latter rooms, as the utility room and boot room are large enough to be reception spaces.
A handsome staircase leads up from the hall to the first floor. A good landing, cloakroom/WC, superb principal suite with double bedroom and dressing room, family bathroom and four further bedrooms are on this level with a second staircase leading up to some useful attic spaces. The principal rooms are large and light, and character features include large stone mullion windows, shutters, fireplaces and a fascinating window sill trough in one of the ground floor rooms.
The property benefits from a good garden to the front and side of the property. These are accessed by a five bar gate, and a prospective buyer will probably look to create a hard standing area on the lower area of the garden to park several cars. The gardens are defined by Cotswold stone walls, and there is a super outlook over the valley and surrounding fields to countryside and woodland.
The property is situated in a good location in Woodchester, just over a mile from Nailsworth town. Nailsworth has become an increasingly popular shopping destination within the Stroud Valleys benefiting from a large selection of speciality shops including Williams Food Hall, the famous Hobbs House Bakery, The Yellow Lighted Bookshop, 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 and free parking. Nailsworth is also home to Forest
Green Rovers Football Club where there is a modern leisure/fitness centre and both state and private schooling within the area. 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.
We are informed that all mains services are connected to the property
