Details

Description

Perched high on the hill above Nailsworth with the most stunning views, 19 Homefield is beautifully presented throughout and offers single-storey living in a lovely sunny location. A real feature of the property is the impressive raised deck area which runs the full width of the back of the bungalow and offers far reaching views over Nailsworth and Minchinhampton Common. The property is approached by an entrance hall, which leads into the lounge/diner, a large, light room with an electric feature fireplace and French sliding doors leading to the deck area, making the most of the amazing view. There is room for a large dining table and chairs and the chimney breast could be opened up to house a wood-burning stove or gas fire from the adjacent gas point. The kitchen/breakfast room also overlooks the view and has a new gas cooker and space for a small table. There is an airing cupboard in this room and a door leading to the side of the
property. The bungalow also offers two good-sized bedrooms, one with a large bank of stylish IKEA wardrobes, and a bathroom. The property has central heating and double-glazing throughout and a spacious and insulated half boarded loft.

Outside

The bungalow has a generous well-established garden area to the front. There is a driveway with parking for 2 cars and a detached single garage with power, light and a motorbike lock. At the back of the garage there is a workshop, also with power and light, and vintage 1960s cupboards. The sunny rear garden has a lawn and hedging and features a fully insulated and double glazed garden studio which could be used as an office or hobby room. This has a long-lasting rubber roof. The non-slip deck area which runs across the back of number 19 has been newly stripped and repainted and offers a stunning spot from which to take in the views and enjoy a glass of wine.

Location

“What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare?” – these are the opening lines of the world-famous poem Leisure by W H Davies, written in 1911 while he was living in a cottage at Watledge. Today, Nailsworth has changed a great deal since Davies’ time, but there is still much to stand and stare at in the bustling town centre, home to many independent businesses, selling everything from artisan bread, meat and fish to stationery, fashion and handmade jewellery. Nestling at the bottom of steep wooded hills, Nailsworth is now an attractive and vibrant shopping destination, with a large selection of interesting speciality shops and cafes, including the famous Williams Food Hall and Hobbs House Bakery. It is a quirky and friendly town, with a good selection of restaurants, as well as three supermarkets, a regular farmers’ market and a ‘green’ football club. Nailsworth is well positioned for both town and country. Climb
the steep ‘W’ hill out of town and you find yourself on acres of stunning National Trust common land, home to a prestigious golf course. The town is also on the doorstep of beautiful Woodchester Park, with miles of woodland walks and secluded lakes. Yet just four miles away is Stroud, with more comprehensive shopping, educational and leisure facilities, connected by bus services. 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.
