A wonderful family house in the heart of popular Nailsworth with lots of characterful living space, a large garden, parking and a garage and a self-contained adjoining annexe
A former home of poet WH Davies, Yewdales is a handsome character property situated in a prominent position in the heart of popular Nailsworth. This location, in the very centre of this thriving community, allows for easy access to the shops and amenities of the town with countryside walks just up the road. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone and has clearly been the subject of comprehensive improvement in recent years. It now combines period features and proportions with contemporary styling, with spacious accommodation arranged over three floors. A porch with lovely arched detailing, entrance hall, cloakroom/wc, 15′ sitting room, with stone fireplace, dining room and 15′ kitchen with contemporary units are on the ground floor. A landing, 15′ family room with feature bay window, four bedrooms and a family bathroom are on the first floor, with a further bathroom and attic space at the top of the house, on the second floor. Tasteful colour schemes have been used throughout, complementing the character and space. There is a self-contained cottage attached to the property. This comprises entrance hall, 19′ sitting room, and 14′ kitchen/dining room on the ground floor with a landing, double bedroom, dressing room/study and bathroom above, on the first floor. This space is bound to prove popular with buyers looking to work from home, house a dependent relative or create an income, although it could also be incorporated into the main house, creating over 3000 sq ft of space (inc garage).
The rear garden is very generous considering the central location and very unlike a typical town house garden. There is a paved sitting area to the immediate rear, with steps up to the main garden area. This stretches away from the house, with lawned areas, a couple of sitting spots and lots of mature trees and shrubs. There is another paved area behind the annexe, so this unit does have an outside area if a buyer chooses to let it out, with the main house benefiting from parking at the front and an integral garage.
The property is situated in the centre of Nailsworth, a very desirable town within the Stroud Valleys and was recently placed in the Sunday Times ‘Top 101 places to live.’ It benefits from a large selection of speciality shops, cafes and well-regarded restaurants. In addition to this the town currently benefits from three supermarkets and free parking. Minchinhampton is just up the hill with a popular golf course and hundreds of acres of National Trust land. Nailsworth is within easy reach several excellent grammar schools and numerous well-regarded Independent
schools, including Beaudesert and Wycliffe. There are a more comprehensive selection of facilities at nearby Stroud, as well as a train station with direct London (Paddington) service taking 90 minutes. Easy access to the M4 and M5 motorways allow for a straightforward commute to Cheltenham, Bristol, Swindon and the Midlands.
