Cambray House is a home that exudes style around every turn. Bright, open spaces and an exceptional attention to detail, combine to create a home with unique flair that works as superbly for everyday living as it does for entertaining and hosting family and friends. Careful thought has been put into creating living spaces which flow and seamlessly combine exterior and interior living.
A handsome bespoke entrance door wrapped in distressed copper, sets the tone for the stylish home within. Opening to a light and spacious reception hall with reclaimed oak flooring, steps lead up to a games room and snug with expansive electronically controlled glazed doors opening to the garden. The kitchen leads off the snug and is sensational in its design and layout, whilst also clearly the heart of the home. Bespoke units provide ample, clever discreet storage with mood lighting throughout. Dekton worktops (a high-end, practically indestructible sintered stone product) provide practical whilst simultaneously stylish work spaces and a large centre island offers breakfast bar seating for 4. There is ample room for a large dining table and double glazed sliding doors across two aspects allow the light to flood-in whilst also creating a wonderful sense of flow to the outside. The kitchen provides a fabulous entertaining space, ideal for large gatherings with family and friends. A cloakroom and plant room which also doubles up as a useful boot room, together with a shower room, are also located on the ground floor; this section of the house is currently a superb guest suite but has the potential to create a self-contained annexe with its own access.
Further reception rooms are located in the original part of the house, which dates back to circa 1750. Clever design allows for period features to sit harmoniously alongside the modern addition to the home. A cosy sitting room with feature fireplace with wood burning stove inset plus a cinema room, are located in this section of the house. Newly installed sash windows provide character along with aged beams and bespoke joinery storage solutions. A home office and utility, with access to the garden, is also located in this section of the house.
Three separate staircases lead to five bedrooms. The principal suite has a fabulous walk-in dressing room plus spacious en-suite. There is also a family bathroom plus a ground floor shower room to service the guest suite.
The grounds include expansive patio areas leading directly from the kitchen and snug, with wonderful mood lighting, making the areas ideal for entertaining. A raised decking area with room for a hot tub and ample seating, provides further entertaining and relaxing space. The garden totals approximately 1.5 acres and is largely to the rear and side of the property and comprises sweeping lawns and established trees. A wind turbine is located at the top of the garden, providing clean, low-cost electricity to Cambray House. A new driveway plus garaging and storage space is in the process of construction (see agent's note).
Planning has been granted to build a new driveway and outbuildings, comprising bike store/bin/recycling store, full height garage storage, 2 bay garage/car port and office (total circa 861sq ft). The current owners will have completed all of the excavation and groundworks for the driveway and garage along with the structural/retaining elements, finished up to ground level for the car port/garage. The permission is therefore implemented and can be completed at any point in the future.

The location of Cambray House is one of its key attributes. Within walking distance of the vibrant market town of Nailsworth, the property backs onto glorious open countryside. The market towns of Stroud, Tetbury and Minchinhampton are all just a short drive away, offering a host of neighbouring Cotswold market towns to visit.
Nailsworth is a buzzing market town with numerous independent retailers, restaurants and cafes. There is also a Morrisons supermarket and a popular delicatessen, William's Kitchen. Stroud is circa ten minutes drive and has several major supermarkets, including a Waitrose, as well as an award winning Saturday Farmers' Market. One of the key draws to the area is the excellent choice of schools, in both the state and private sector. There are sought after grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham and in the private sector, Beaudersert Park School is only a five minute drive and Westonbirt School in Tetbury and Wycliffe in Stroud, are both easily accessible. There is also an excellent choice of schools in Cheltenham. The surrounding countryside offers a lovely source of walks with good pubs to explore and the stylish spa hotel, Calcot Manor, is within a ten minute drive. There are three challenging golf courses in nearby Minchinhampton plus a fabulous common, providing 100s of acres of glorious National Trust land and well-known for the cattle and horses that freely graze.
Cambray House is well located for transport links with both the M5 and M4 easily accessible and trains into London Paddington from either Stroud or Kemble station.
From our Minchinhampton office, follow West End out onto the common. Turn left at Tom Long's Post and follow the winding road down the hill into Nailsworth. Turn left at the mini roundabout onto the A46 and after circa half a mile, as you climb the hill, you will find the entrance to Cambray House on the left hand side.
