A characterful detached Cotswold stone house boasting a southerly aspect within walking distance of Nailsworth. Spacious accommodation, double garage, parking and mature gardens
An individual detached property situated in a lovely elevated position in popular Watledge. This location is very much part of the bustling Nailsworth community and the shops and amenities are within easy reach. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone with spacious accommodation arranged over three floors. A double glazed conservatory, entrance hall, sitting room with wood burning stove, dining room and kitchen are on the ground floor. Leading from the entrance hall are stairs up to a light, spacious landing, with two double bedrooms, a study (accessed from one of the bedrooms, so could well suit for conversion to an en suite shower room subject to relevant permissions) and a bathroom. Two further bedrooms are found at the top of the house, on the second floor. Due to its southerly aspect, the house is bathed in natural light throughout the year.
The exterior is complemented by parking and gardens. There are two ways of entering the grounds – one from Watledge Road and the other from Station Road. The gate from Watledge Road brings you to the side of the property, with a path leading down past well planted borders and a fish pond to the conservatory door. There is a secluded sitting area beyond this, with steps leading down to the lower garden. A wooden shed is on the right and an old block built potting shed on the left with mature flower borders and a greenhouse beyond. A path leads down into the
lower garden. There is a productive cultivated area here, with growing beds and gooseberry and blackcurrant bushes, and a level garden beyond. This pretty area is laid to lawn, with Russett and Bramley apple trees and a Conference pear tree. The car port and gated parking area are at the bottom of the plot, with a double garage with two up and over doors. The current owner has applied for outline planning permission for the erection of a detached dwelling in the lower area of the garden. It is proposed that there will be a shared driveway with parking for both properties, and the garage would be demolished to facilitate this build. Buyers will benefit from the option to build here should the application be successful. More information is available on request.
The property is situated in a country lane in Watledge, above Nailsworth. Nailsworth has become an increasingly popular shopping destination within the Stroud Valleys benefiting from a large and comprehensive selection of specialty 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 and free parking. 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.
