A striking detached Cotswold stone Grade II listed house situated in an elevated spot above Nailsworth centre with well proportionedliving space, a useful converted stable building, garden and garage
A handsome Grade II listed detached property in an elevated position above Nailsworth centre. This location allows for easy access to the shops and amenities of the town with lovely views across the valley at the front and open fields behind. Originally built in the 17th century using traditional methods from Cotswold stone and then extended in the 1800’s in what is very much the Georgian vernacular, the property offers well proportioned living space and the opportunity for a prospective buyer to make a wonderful family home. An ornate wrought iron porch and the original front door greet you, opening into the entrance hall. The dining room and sitting room are to the left and the right, with lovely Georgian sash windows, and a 22’ kitchen/breakfast room running across the back of the house. There is also a utility room on this level, with a useful studio room to the side of the house. This space was a stable and has its own access, but is close enough to the house to offer extra accommodation. As such it might be used as a play room, teenage den, studio or treatment room for a buyer looking to work from home. The original staircase leads up from the entrance hall to the first floor, with a good landing, four bedrooms and large bathroom on this floor. Again, the front two rooms have lovely Georgian windows, and these look out over the road onto the field opposite and in to the valley.
The property benefits from parking, a garage and good gardens to three sides. The front garden is level and enclosed with what are probably the original railings, with steps leading up to the side and rear gardens. There is a nature area with pond at the top of these steps, with the garden then leading around across the back of the property to the majority of the plot at the far side of the house. This large area is used to play in but also has fruit trees, a chicken run, a greenhouse, a shed/summer house, both with power and great views to both the North and the West. Steps then lead down to the single garage (with double timber doors, power and light. 11’5″ max narrowing to 9’2″ x 13’6″) and parking, with a wood store and the old outside WC, now used as a store, by the house.
The house is situated above centre of Nailsworth which has become an increasingly popular shopping destination within the Stroud Valleys. The town benefits 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.
