Location - Blackberry Hill is situated close to Nailsworth between Tetbury and Stroud, in a special part of the Cotswolds noted for its scenery, good communications and choice of outstanding schools. An official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, characterised by wooded river valleys and rolling farmland, it is great riding and walking country with a network of public footpaths and bridleways to enjoy. Significantly Blackberry Hill is also conveniently situated for both the M4 and M5 motorways so is very accessible for commuting to Bristol, The Midlands or South Wales while London is about two hours drive, with the alternative of regular train services from Kemble (from 75 minutes) or Stroud Station (from 93 minutes) into Paddington. Crucially for families, the choice of excellent schools within close proximity both state and private, also makes this a very sought after location in which to live. Stroud has both boys and girls grammar schools, Beaudesert Park Preparatory School is just across the valley and Westonbirt and Wycliffe College are nearby. Nailsworth, immediately down the hill, is a thriving market town with free car parking, excellent shopping and a wide choice of places to eat out, while the neighbouring Horsley, is a delightful village with a pub serving really good food, community shop, church and primary school.

Motorway M5 J13 Stroud - 6.5 miles, Motorway M4 J15 Swindon - 30 miles, Motorway M4 J18 Old Sodbury (Bath/Bristol) - 15 miles, Stroud Railway Station - 5 miles, Cirencester (central) - 12 miles, Cheltenham (central) - 19 miles, Bath (central) - 30 miles, Bristol Airport - 40 miles. Distances are approximate.

Description - Blackberry Hill is a former Vicarage built around 1850 and extended in 1874. It is therefore a very fine example of Victorian architecture which the vendors have been careful to maintain and enhance, creating a superb home in which to bring up their family. Set on the upper slopes of a wooded valley, Blackberry Hill has a prominent position with good views and with a south-easterly aspect so attracts excellent levels of natural light through its large windows. Throughout the house there are many fine period features - flag stone floors, mullion windows and attractive fireplaces, and it has a genuine feeling of space, especially on the ground floor making it ideal for entertaining. The accommodation in principal comprises five reception rooms, seven bedrooms, two dressing rooms, three bathrooms, two cloakrooms and an extensive wine cellar. Blackberry Hill is approached up an impressive gravel drive leading to a broad sweep with a Coach House at its rear offering garaging and storage but which also has potential for other uses (subject to planning consent). Set in about seven acres, Blackberry Hill has formal gardens to the front and side, flanked by wooded grounds which contain many specimen trees, a legacy of an association with the Holford family who established the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum nearby in the 19th century. Behind these are three pony paddocks totalling about four acres with stables (two loose boxes) and a barn/tack room.

N.B. A public right of way passes along the west side of the paddocks.
