A substantial character home, that was formerly the village shop, in a great position in sought after Woodchester High Street with five bedrooms, two reception rooms, parking, car port and gardens
The Old Store is a characterful attached period property situated in an elevated position in the heart of popular Woodchester. This location is very much part of the thriving local community, with a school and post office within easy reach and country walks on the doorstep. The property is built using traditional methods under a Cotswold stone tile roof with spacious, flexible character accommodation arranged over three floors. A porch, 19’ sitting room with fireplace, 17’ dining room and 23’ kitchen/breakfast room are on the ground floor. A landing, large bathroom,
shower room and three bedrooms are on the first floor, with two further bedrooms at the top of the house, on the second floor. Character features are found throughout the property and the windows at the front take in the lovely view across the valley.
The property is complemented by parking, gardens and a two storey outbuilding. The parking is to the front, and this area is screened with hedging, with the car port to the side of the property. The two storey outbuilding is behind this. It is attached to the house, with access from the side and the rear. This is currently used as a store, but a prospective buyer may look to renovate this (subject to consent and regulations) to create a workshop or work from home space. The garden is to the rear of the property, and is beautifully planted. Steps lead up from the rear of the house into this terraced space. There is a paved sitting area on the right, and a small lawned terrace on the left. Steps run up through colourful, established borders to two larger level lawned areas, with a rockery in between. There are established trees and planting throughout the plot, and a pedestrian access out on to the lane at the rear.
The popular village of Woodchester enjoys the benefits of a local post office, a good pub and a well regarded primary school. Woodchester lies equidistant between both Stroud and Nailsworth which benefits from a large and comprehensive 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. Bus services connect with Stroud, some two 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 (2.5 miles) and Kemble (12.5 miles) provide main line services to Gloucester, Swindon and London Paddington.
