Yew Tree Cottage is a pretty detached character property in an elevated position above Nailsworth. This location allows for easy access to the shops, amenities and community of the town with lovely westerly views across the valley to the front. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone and has clearly been the subject of improvement over the last couple of years, well presented accommodation arranged over two floors. An entrance hall, sitting room with fireplace and wood burning stove, kitchen/dining room, flexible room that could be
used as either a bedroom or reception room, bathroom and utility room are on the ground floor, with two double bedrooms and a WC above, on the first floor. Every window enjoys a good outlook, with the character accommodation highlighted by some very tasteful décor.
The interior is complemented by parking and a lovely garden. The parking space is just off the road, below the garden, and whilst this is only really suitable for a small car the owners do rent two parking spaces opposite from a neighbour, and a prospective buyer can continue with this agreement should they choose to. The garden is mainly to the front of the property and is a real benefit. Steps lead up from road level to this area, with the majority of the garden laid to lawn. A path leads up to the front door, with a productive growing area on the left of the plot and a summerhouse and enclosed area (previously used for chickens) on the right. There is a decked sitting area to the left of the house itself (a great spot for a table and chairs) and a gravelled area on the far side of the property with a useful shed attached to the property. There are planted borders to the rear, and the garden is enclosed with fencing.
The house is situated about a mile and a half above centre of Nailsworth. The town 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.
