A characterful extended detached Cotswold Stone cottage in an elevated spot above Nailsworth town with flexible accommodation, parking for several vehicles and a lovely garden with woodland area
Albert Cottage is a handsome 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 a great outlook across the Horsley valley at the rear. The property was originally built using traditional methods from Cotswold Stone and was the subject of renovation and careful, considered extension in 2000 by the previous owner. The resulting property offers interesting, characterful accommodation that is arranged over three floors. You can enter from either the ground
floor or the first floor. The door on the lower level is most likely to be your day to day entrance, as it is closest to the parking area. There is a utility area, inner hall, shower room and 16’ kitchen/breakfast room on this level, and the latter room has glazed doors to the front and a sunny outlook over the garden. An entrance hall with study area, cloakroom/WC and 17’ sitting room with open fireplace are on the first floor, with three bedrooms and another shower room at the top of the house, on the second floor.
The interior is complemented by parking for several vehicles and a lovely garden with a woodland area below. The parking space is just off the road and is block paved, with space to park several vehicles. Steps lead down from this area to the house to a gated entrance to an enclosed area. This leads to the front door on this level and on to steps that take you to a pretty terrace with Cotswold stone walling, a gate back to the pavement and the front door on the first floor. There is a footpath directly in front of the house (Old Coach Lane) that runs through the property, with the rest of the garden beyond this. There is a lovely level lawn here and this is edged with a variety of established colourful plants. The property also owns a lovely area of woodland. This is below the property, and it slope down the valley. There is a level area at the top of the wood and there is a wood working shed and area here.
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.
