The Nook offers a spacious and immaculately presented family home in a fabulous elevated position just a short walk from the centre of Nailsworth. On entering the property there is a practical cloakroom to your right, before the room opens up into a magnificent light filled open plan kitchen, dining and living space. Cream fitted units and a Rangemaster create a stylish vibe and a pretty window seat adds character and is the perfect place to perch and soak up views through the conservatory to the garden and Nailsworth beyond. The living space is at the far end of the room, with a fireplace creating a lovely focal point, fitted with wood burning stove. Exposed Cotswold stone, stylish laminate flooring and a charming bay window, create a room with a real sense of warmth. Bifold doors allow the sitting room space to be sectioned off if required and a lovely sun room also leads off the main kitchen; this whole space flows beautifully and is a great area for entertaining. A separate conservatory leads off the kitchen, with access to a paved terrace, home office and garden.
Stairs lead off the living area to the first floor, where there are two double bedrooms, the principal suite with dressing room and en-suite shower room and the second bedroom with a charming exposed fireplace. Both of these rooms have lovely views over the garden and towards Nailsworth. There is also a good sized family bathroom on this floor with bath and shower over. There are two further double bedrooms on the top floor, with exposed beams, giving a real sense of the history of the house.
There is a separate home office with utility and gym adjacent to the house, with power and heating. A good sized space, the home office has large windows and is filled with light. There is also a separate studio space, fitted with power and formerly used as an artist's studio. The landscaped garden is tiered, leading down to a heated swimming pool with pump house. There are well stocked raised beds with mature shrubs, blackberry bushes and apple trees. Uplighters lead down the steps to the lower level where there is a triple garage and additional parking. Planning permission has been granted for a 3 bed dwelling alongside the garages.
The property can be accessed either via Watledge Road or Station Road but for viewings we recommend the Station Road entrance. From our Minchinhampton office head along West End and Windmill Road towards the Common. At the junction, turn left towards Nailsworth and at the Nailsworth roundabout, turn right and then almost immediately right again into Station Road. Pass Eagle Mill restaurant on your left and continue along the road until you see three large garages on the right. Park in front of the garage and walk up the steps to The Nook.
The Nook is located in Watledge, a charming hamlet just five minutes walk from the vibrant market town of Nailsworth. Watledge consists of little more than a narrow country lane flanked with period properties. Located at the foot of a steep sided valley, the hamlet is wonderfully peaceful, with minimal passing traffic.
Nailsworth is a buzzing market town with numerous independent retailers, restaurants and cafes. There is also a Morrisons supermarket and a popular delicatessen. Stroud is circa ten minutes drive and has several major supermarkets, including a Waitrose, as well as a popular Saturday Farmer's Market. A choice of excellent schools is a key draw to the area, with several sought after grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham and a good choice of schools in the private sector, including Beaudesert Park just up the hill in Minchinhampton, Westonbirt near Tetbury and Wycliffe in Stonehouse. The surrounding countryside is a lovely source of walks with good pubs to explore and there are three challenging golf courses in nearby Minchinhampton.
Nailsworth is circa two hours by road to London or about 90 minutes by train from nearby Stroud station, into London Paddington. Access to the M5 motorway (junction 13) is less than 15 minutes, for commuting to Bristol or the West Midlands.
