Blake House offers a spacious family home in a superb elevated position overlooking Nailsworth and the Stroud Valleys beyond. The house has a real sense of space with a hint of grandeur and whilst well maintained by the present owners, is now in need of some modernisation and upgrading. A large reception hallway sets the tone for what is a welcoming and practical home. Leading off the hallway is a cloakroom and a good sized dual aspect sitting room with double doors opening into a conservatory, the perfect spot to sit and relax and soak up the vista. Leading off the opposite side of the hallway is a kitchen/breakfast room, offering a lovely sunny space, with practical fitted units. A good size utility room leads off the kitchen, with access to the garden. A delightful and light filled dining room also leads off the reception hall, with double doors to the patio, perfect for summer entertaining.
Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms, the large master suite with en-suite WC and shower and a fourth room, currently used as a study, which would also work well as a single bedroom. There is a spacious bathroom and ample storage both within the bedrooms and a good sized airing cupboard on the landing.
Blake House has a lovely, professionally designed garden. Settle on the patio on a summer evening to look over the garden and survey the wonderful views across the town and to the valley and wooded hillsides beyond. From the main patio, steps lead down to a further patio area with shed and greenhouse and then down a final tier to a magnificent formal garden filled with mature shrubs and wonderful circular yew topiary with gravel pathways. There is also a single garage to the front of the house on a private driveway, offering parking for a number of vehicles.
From our Minchinhampton office, proceed along West End into Windmill Road and at the junction on the Common, turn left for Nailsworth. Proceed across the Common and down the 'W' into Nailsworth; go straight over the roundabout, turning almost immediately left into Old Market Road. As the road bends, turn right just in front of the Britannia Inn into Chestnut Hill. After a short distance, take the first right into Orchard Mead, follow the road round to the left and Blake House will be found at the far end on the left hand side.
Blake House is a short walk from the centre of Nailsworth, a thriving and popular market town full of independent retailers. Located in the south-west of the Cotswolds with good road and rail links, London is easily accessible (under 2 hours by car), or circa 90 minutes by rail from nearby Stroud Station. .
Nailsworth has a wonderful mix of independent retailers including an outstanding delicatessen with fresh fish counter, an award winning bakery and wine merchant, as well as a national supermarket and other food outlets. There is also a wide choice of places to eat out including several excellent restaurants. A strong education sector is a key draw to the area, with sought after grammar schools in nearby Stroud as well as a good choice of schools in Gloucester and Cheltenham. The surrounding countryside is unspoilt with great walks and popular cycle tracks. Stroud has an award winning Saturday Farmers' Market and there are plenty of local sports clubs and several challenging golf courses in nearby Minchinhampton.
