Sunnyside, as the property's name would suggest, is a bright and welcoming detached cottage which was completely renovated approximately 5 years ago. The front door to the main house is set back from the road and leads into a large entrance hallway which was previously used as a dining room. This leads further into a useful utility room and guest WC. The sitting room is a cosy and relaxing space with wonderful exposed stone, wooden beams and wood burner. This leads into the modern kitchen/breakfast room which has a back door out to a pretty courtyard acting as the middle ground between the main house and the annexe. Upstairs, the space was entirely reconfigured to offer three good sized double bedrooms and a family bathroom with both shower and bath.
The ground floor of the annexe is used as a store room with a separate WC, and on the first floor and peaceful studio which is filled with natural light.
The rear garden is set over several tiers and takes full advantage of the southerly views across the valley towards Nailsworth. There are several different areas which offer lawns, patio seating, mature planting and vegetable gardens as well as a useful garden shed.
Watledge is a charming hamlet within walking distance of the vibrant market town of Nailsworth. The hamlet comprises a pretty lane flanked by beautiful period properties. Located at the foot of a steep sided valley, Watledge is wonderfully peaceful, with minimal passing traffic, yet still within easy access of amenities and within minutes from open countryside, including Minchinhampton Common, offering 100s of acres of National Trust commonland.
Nearby 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 up the hill 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 there are three challenging golf courses in nearby Minchinhampton.
From our Minchinhampton office head along West End, leading into Windmill Road towards Minchinhampton Common. At the junction, turn left and head down the hill towards Nailsworth. Just before the cattle grid on the sharp bend, turn right along a small lane leading to Watledge. Continue along the lane for circa quarter of a mile and Sunnyside will be found on the right hand side. Parking is located on Watledge itself.
