Located in a popular road high above Nailsworth, Four Gables is well situated for both town and country, with easy access to the artisan shops and cafes of Nailsworth but with lovely walks and community allotments right on the doorstep. The 1950s property is in need of updating work but could be turned into a light and spacious family home with a generous garden and lovely views.
A large porch leads into a wide hallway where there is access to an attic space with a window, which could be converted into further living accommodation subject to the necessary planning permissions. The sitting room has a feature fireplace and a large bay window overlooking the front garden. There is a separate dining room with two windows and built-in cupboards, a galley kitchen overlooking the lovely view and a lobby area with a pantry. This has a door which leads to the outside and a raised walkway with railings that has a large, covered storage area underneath it. There are two double bedrooms, one at the front overlooking the garden and the other at the back of the house, enjoying the views. There is also a family bathroom, UPVC windows and central heating. A useful basement room with a window runs beneath the bungalow, which is ideal for further conversion.
There are double gates leading to an enclosed front garden with parking for one vehicle. A side pedestrian access with steps leads to the generous rear garden, which is fully enclosed, gently sloping and mainly laid to lawn. There is also a wooden summerhouse positioned to enjoy the views, a greenhouse and a variety of shrubs and bushes.
“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.
