Fern Bank is situated on the fringe of Nailsworth, a small Cotswold market town which provides an extensive and eclectic range of shops as well as an abundance of restaurants and public houses. Further along the valley is Stroud, a larger centre that also supports a Waitrose supermarket and an Apollo cinema. There are also two highly regarded schools Marling's and Stroud High School for girls as well as a railway station from which there is a regular service to London Paddington.
The property is also well placed for access to the M4 (junctions 15 & 18) and the M5 (junction 13) as well as the nearby historic town of Cirencester and Tetbury to the east, the fine spa town of Cheltenham to the north as well as the Georgian city of Bath and regional centre of Bristol to the south.
Sporting and leisure opportunities include golf at Minchinhampton, gliding at Aston Down, water sports at the Cotswold Water Park and rugby at Kingsholm Gloucester. There are also superb walks on the nearby commons of Selsey, Rodborough and Minchinhampton.
Fern Bank is a much improved Edwardian detached family house which provides well proportioned family accommodation set over three floors. In addition to the two principal reception rooms to the front of the house there is also a breakfast room off the kitchen and a conservatory off the sitting room.
The staircase rises to the first floor where there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms one being ensuite. Two further bedrooms are found on the second floor which are served by a third bathroom.
Outside the gardens are divided into areas with steps leading up to the rear of the property where there are pathways with landscaped terraces and walls containing an abundance of mature shrubs, trees and bushes leading up to a wooded area to an good sized upper garden comprising fruit trees, large grassed area, two sheds, purpose built office and children's wendy house. To the side of the property is a levelled lawned area providing outdoor seating etc. Steps lead down to the garage and purpose built parking area for approximately four cars.
From Cirencester take the A419 towards Stroud after approximately 7 miles turn left towards Aston Down, Minchinhampton. After approximately 3 miles, you are on Minchinhampton Common and its golf course and a sign post with the name Tom Long's post at the top of the sign. Turn left here for Nailsworth and continue over the common and down the Alpine road. Prior to reaching Nailsworth itself and immediately before the cattle grid turn right into Watledge Lane and continue for approximately quarter of a mile. As the road widens Fern Bank can be found up on the right hand side.
