Offered CHAIN FREE - a unique opportunity to create an individual detached single storey home in an elevated location above Nailsworth with good gardens, connecting reception rooms and a great outlook



Beechcroft is an individual detached bungalow situated in an elevated position above Nailsworth. This location, perched on the side of valley, is very much part of the thriving local community and allows for easy access to the shops and amenities of the town with country walks just up the road. The property is built using traditional methods under a pitched roof and is in need of renovation and improvement, with accommodation arranged over one floor. This comprises entrance hall, cloakroom/WC, connecting reception rooms, kitchen, principal bedroom with en suite shower room, bathroom and two further double bedrooms. The windows at the front take in a first class view across the valley and this outlook could be incorporated into the renovation to make something quite special.


The property benefits from a good area of outside space, with the majority of this to the side and below the property. There is a large level area to the side of the house, and historically the owners used this as a long drive, although the kerb leading from the road isn’t lowered. The boundary line is below this, just below this level area, with another area of garden to the far side of Beechcroft. This then steeply slopes away below the property, and a prospective buyer may look to terrace this area. The view from the area to the far side of Beechcroft is lovely, and is this is likely to be the area of garden that is most in use.


The property is just above Harley Wood, an enclave of cottages approximately ½ mile of the centre of Nailsworth. The town 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, various clothing and gift shops, several cafes and a good selection of very well regarded restaurants. 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.




We are informed that mains water and electricity are connected to the property. The owner is unsure if the property is connected to mains drainage and buyers will need to make their own investigations.
