Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A very special Cotswold stone character home positioned in the very heart of Nympsfield village with a breath-taking outlook across open farmland. This well-maintained and much loved home has been occupied by the same family for many years, and is set in a generous level plot with beautifully planted gardens, ample parking and a double garage, currently used as a workshop/store.

Stone Court, has progressed from a single property (estimated approximately 1740) through alterations into four separate dwellings, to it's current single use building to create it's unusual shape and individual layout, and has character in abundance; the later kitchen extension to the rear has huge potential to extend to further embrace the outstanding outlook (subject to obtaining the necessary permissions and consents).

The ground floor offers a generous sitting room with inglenook fireplace and log-burning stove, with cottage stairs ascending to the first floor and a further doorway linking to one of the attached outbuildings. The entrance hallway currently serves as a cosy study, off of which there is a downstairs WC, and a doorway into the dining room which has a lovely view of the front garden, a fireplace and stunning parquet flooring, believed to have been salvaged from London's Victoria & Albert Museum. The well-presented kitchen to the rear has a dual aspect and a lovely view across the gardens, a large Belfast sink and an Esse electric range cooker, plus a door into a useful utility/boot room.

On the first floor there is a large principal bedroom with the shower room adjacent, a good-size landing and corridor leading to a well-presented family bathroom and second double bedroom. Further cottage stairs lead from the landing to bedroom three which has velux windows offering lovely views across the village and beyond, and is linked to a further room perfect for use as an occasional bedroom/dressing room or office. The property has been beautifully maintained throughout and boasts leaded stone mullion windows to the left hand wing and replacement timber conservation windows to the right. There is a newly replaced boiler, very up-together bathrooms and kitchen, and scope to further utilise the two generous Cotswold stone store rooms/workshops attached to the rear.

The beautifully planted, generous cottage gardens are a particular feature with a superb outlook across open farmland, several patio areas for entertaining, and a productive vegetable garden with raised beds. There is a large gated gravelled driveway with parking for several vehicles and the aforementioned double garage.

Nympsfield village is located high on the Cotswold escarpment between Nailsworth, Dursley and Stroud and adjacent to Coaley Peak from which you can enjoy spectacular views across the Severn Vale. The village has an excellent community vibe and provides local amenities including a well-regarded primary school and two churches, a welcoming village pub and working-men's club, and there is a local gliding club situated within half a mile of the village centre.

The nearby village of Uley has strong links with Nympsfield, and has a community run village shop with post office, dispensing doctors surgery, local Public House, Brewery and the Prema Art Centre which is a fantastic venue for local events and also home to the popular Vestry Cafe.

The popular town of Nailsworth lies less than four miles away and offers a fantastic array of independent shops, restaurants and cafes, while Stroud and Tetbury are within easy reach.

For those needing to commute, Cam and Dursley train station just five miles away provides commuter links to Bristol and Gloucester/ Cheltenham. Junctions of the M4 and M5 motorways are within relatively easy access, while Stroud (5 miles) and Kemble (sixteen miles) train stations offers convenient links to London.
