A well presented semi detached Cotswold stone cottage in a lovely location above Nailsworth at Windsoredge with three bedrooms, a garage, parking and a first class garden room extension



A well presented semi detached character property situated in a lovely elevated position at Windsoredge. This location, high above Nailsworth, allows for a super view across the valley to countryside and woodland, with the shops and amenities of the town within easy reach. The current owners have lived here for over twenty years and have made some comprehensive improvements to the property in that time. The most notable of these is a superb 15’ garden room addition to the front of the property, which looks out onto the garden and the view beyond.

The property is arranged over three floors. A porch, 16’ sitting room with fireplace and wood burning stove, kitchen and the aforementioned garden room are on the ground floor, with a useful utility room that is accessed from the outside also on this level. A landing, two bedrooms, bathroom and separate WC are on the first floor, with another bedroom at the top of the house, on the second floor. The house is well presented throughout, and the owners have obtained planning permission to extend the property at the rear, so prospective buyers have the opportunity to buy a house that can grow with them over time.


The property benefits from a garage, parking and gardens with a great cabin. The garage and parking are at the bottom of the plot, with a gated path that leads up to the house. There is a lawned area to the right, with a deep border stocked with a variety of shrubs above this. The owners have sited a detached cabin building next to this, and this is a great place to sit, relax and take in that fantastic outlook. There are gravelled gardens behind this, with more pretty planting and a good paved area in front of the house. This is a lovely spot, and another opportunity to marvel at the view.


“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.
