North Woodchester




A beautifully presented Grade II Listed Cotswold stone house with a clever kitchen extension situated in a good location at popular Woodchester with three bedrooms, gardens, parking and a garage



A beautifully presented semi detached Cotswold stone property in an elevated spot on Selsley Road in popular Woodchester. There is a real sense of community here, with a well regarded local primary school, post office/store and well used public house all within striking distance. Knapp House dates back to the 17th Century, and is listed due in part to the distinctive gabled architecture that graces both the front and the rear of the house. The current owners have clearly carefully considered how best to extend the building, and the resulting property offers prospective buyers the chance to buy a home that very much champions its heritage whilst embracing modern design philosophy. An entrance area, useful cloakroom/W.c with storage, a 14’ square sitting room with handsome fireplace and first class kitchen/dining room with underfloor heating are on the ground floor. The latter is a special space – the aforementioned extension brings
light and extra space to the original footprint. There is room for both a table and a sofa, and the two sets of bi-fold doors expertly connect the garden with the house. A characterful winding staircase leads up from the sitting room to the first floor, with two bedrooms and a shower room on this level. Further accommodation is found at the top of the house by way of a lovely principal bedroom. This 15’ room opens up into the eaves, and has good built in storage, with a well appointed bathroom beyond.


Knapp House has a good garden, parking and a detached 20’ garage. Steps lead down from the hill to the property, with an enclosed area to the front of the house, with space for recycling/bin storage. The garden is behind the house, with access around the side of the building. This is a generous, well planned space, and it connects with the house brilliantly by virtue of the bi fold doors that open from the kitchen. There is a paved area directly behind the property, with a level lawn beyond this. This area is edged with well planted borders and Cotswold stone walling, and there is a shed tucked into one corner. Steps then lead up to a path and another level area of garden. This larger space is also laid to lawn, with a gravelled seating spot in the corner and a play area behind this. The path leads on to the rear gate and out on to the drive, with parking for several cars. The garage is behind this and measures 20’6” x 12’8” and has power, light, double doors to the front and a door that opens into the garden.


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 Paddington.




We are informed that all mains services are connected to the property.
