An individual detached property situated in a lovely location just off a country lane at popular Walkley Wood, Nailsworth, with well presented, flexible accommodation, large gardens, plenty of parking
A beautifully presented individual detached property situated in a lovely position at Walkley Wood. This elevated spot, bordering fields on the outskirts of Nailsworth, allows for easy access to the shops and amenities of the town with country walks just up the lane. The property is built using traditional methods under a pitched tiled roof and has clearly been the subject of comprehensive improvement and updating in recent years, with spacious, light accommodation arranged over two floors. A 17’ entrance hall, cloakroom/WC, 20’ sitting room, kitchen with contemporary units, utility room, dining room, family bathroom, cloakroom/WC, principal bedroom with en suite shower room, further double bedroom and snug are on the ground floor. The owner commissioned the conversation of the then then loft space some 35 years ago, and now stairs lead up from the snug to a landing/study area, with two attic bedrooms on this floor. These flexible spaces are light and welcoming, and every window enjoys a pleasant outlook.
The interior is complemented by large gardens, an integral tandem garage and parking for several cars. The property is approached along a tarmac driveway sweeping down to the garage with several parking bays off the drive and ample parking for several vehicles. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn, with a lower terrace with raised vegetable beds, a green house and a timber shed. There is a lower area of garden that the owners have purchased in addition to the original plot, and this is enclosed with fencing and enjoys a super view across the Newmarket valley. The property has a small patio area off the utility room (an ideal spot for breakfast outside). The lower level of the property is where the tandem garage is located. This has power and light, and a window with a view across the garden. An access door from the garage leads to the under croft, where the boiler is housed. A prospective buyer may look to obtain planning permission to
convert this space into further accommodation, subject to planning permission.
Nailsworth has become an increasingly popular shopping destination within the Stroud Valleys benefiting 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. 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.
Gas central heating, mains electricity, water and drainage.

The owners have lived in the property since 1977. They commissioned the conversion of the loft space some 35 years ago and we are informed that this work pre dates the introduction of regularised completion certificates. Buyers are therefore encouraged to make their own investigations re the suitability of this
conversion for their own needs.
