A handsome attached Grade II listed Cotswold stone gabled house in a good location at popular Woodchester with character features, flexible accommodation, space to work from home, parking and garden
Lower Court is a well presented attached Grade II listed Cotswold stone house in a good position at popular Woodchester. This location is very much part of the good local community, with a shop, good primary school and public house in walking distance and hundreds of acres of common land just up the hill at Selsley. The property is built from Cotswold stone using traditional methods and has been the subject of renovation and improvement in recent years, with flexible character accommodation arranged over three floors. An entrance hall, kitchen/dining
room and 17′ sitting room with fireplace are on the ground floor. A impressive staircase leads up from the hall to the first floor, with a landing, three bedrooms, well appointed bathroom and small store room on this floor. There are two further connecting rooms at the top of the house, on the second floor, and the current owners use these two rooms as a guest bedroom and a playroom, although the latter might well suit as a second work from home space, in addition to the office just outside the front door.
The property benefits from an office, covered store, parking and landscaped gardens. The office is just by the front door and this useful space has power and light and underfloor heating. The covered store is behind this – ideal for recycling bins and the like – with gravelled driveway parking to the front. There are a couple of steps down to the front door, and a paved area with a wood store, with the garden found beyond the parking. This has been carefully landscaped, with sleeper steps leading up to a great level area, with a good lawn, paved sitting spot (ideal for a table and chairs) and well planted borders. The property also benefits from a right of way access at the rear of the property, over the neighbour’s garden. This is accessed via a back door in the entrance hall.
Woodchester is a pretty Hillside village to the South of Stroud, close to Nailsworth. There is a good sense of community here, with a pub, primary school and village shop/post office. 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. 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
We are informed that all mains services are connected to the property.
