This well presented detached bungalow is set in a quiet location just off Park Road, offering the best of both worlds – easy access to the popular shops and cafes of Nailsworth but with lovely countryside walks on the doorstep. The property has no chain and is available solely to the over 55s
The property is built using traditional methods under a pitched roof and offers well planned accommodation over one floor. A light entrance hall leads into a spacious dual-aspect sitting room, with sliding doors to a conservatory overlooking the garden and fields at the back. There is also a well-appointed kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom with a shower over the walk-in bath. Both the bedrooms have built-in storage and the main bedroom overlooks the garden and fields at the back of the house. The bungalow was built in 1983 and has since benefitted from the
addition of a conservatory, the installation of gas central heating, new windows and front door and new walk-in bath.
The property has a garage, which is attached to next door’s garage, and also parking for one car. There is a pretty, enclosed terraced garden, backing onto fields, with a patio area outside the conservatory, a variety of trees and shrubs and a pleasant sitting area at the top overlooking woodland views. There is also an additional area of lawn to the front.
“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, meatand 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.
