2 The Malt House is a superb apartment in a Grade II listed former maltings building, situated in a country lane just above Nailsworth. This location is private, yet still very much part of the inclusive, thriving local community, with the shops and amenities of the town within easy reach and country walks up the lane. The historic, Grade II listed site has a fascinating history. Derelict and unloved for many years, The Maltings is now being re-imagined as 13 truly stunning properties, many with original historical features. This particular property is on the ground floor and is one of the largest apartments in the development, with spacious accommodation, arranged over one floor, which is full of character, including wooden beams and exposed Cotswold stone and brickwork.

An entrance hall greets you - this good space has an original wooden ladder staircase retained as a decorative feature, with a door to a bedroom on the left. You move through into the inner hall, with the other rooms accessed from this space. The principal bedroom is to the right, and this double room has an en suite shower room. The living space is at the rear of the property, and this open plan room is really rather special. The living space opens out in front of you, with a step up to the dining level. There is room here for a long, statement table, and buyers may choose to create a seating area at the end of this space, to look back at the vaulted ceiling with a bank of roof lights – a real feature. Beyond this is the stylish kitchen. This area has been carefully planned, with integrated appliances and plenty of space to prepare and cook. These three areas work perfectly together, making for a wonderful space in which to relax, cook and entertain. High quality fittings have been used throughout this sympathetic renovation.

The history of the site

Brewing beer is said to be part alchemy and part art – the magic of creation, combined with the blending of flavour and passion. Up a country lane just outside the bustling little town of Nailsworth, a new kind of magic is taking place. The beautiful old Cotswold stone buildings where the town’s beer was once brewed and delivered to pubs all over the area, are being lovingly restored and transformed into stylish apartments. These cool, quirky spaces are being created with the same passion and attention to detail as the master brewer would use to bring his creation to life.

The historic, Grade II listed site has a fascinating history. Derelict and unloved for many years, The Maltings is now being re-imagined as 13 truly stunning properties, many with original historical features. The Nailsworth site was originally the home of a bacon cellar building, constructed by bacon maker Isaac Hillier. A second structure seems to have been added between 1856 and 1881. The brewery grew in size and stature and, by 1891, its buildings occupied most of the area between Butcher’s Hill and Brewery Lane, as well as The Maltings in Tetbury Lane. The buildings became Grade II listed in 2006, but sadly fell into disrepair and many of the historical features were lost. Over the course of the last two years, a meticulous restoration project has been underway to create an exclusive complex of very individual new homes, brimming with original historical features. A striking 4 storey new-build house is also being built on the site and the beautiful old kiln has been completely renovated to create a truly unique showcase home. So now Nailsworth townsfolk can raise a glass to a new dawn in the history of this important local site.

The site today

It is immediately apparent that extraordinary care has been taken in conserving the character and heritage of the site. There is a fine line to toe here – preservation of the Grade II listed site and the creation of comfortable modern living spaces aren’t always easy bedfellows. Any such concerns are quashed upon entry however. Open, airy living spaces now sit within the period stone and brick structures, and contemporary kitchens and bathrooms share the spotlight with carefully retained original features. High quality fittings have been used throughout the site, with Neff appliances and Roca bathroom furniture and the site also benefits from ultra fast broadband. Local craftsmen and businesses have been integral to the conversion work. High levels of insulation have been added to the buildings and the use of double glazing has been permitted, so potential purchasers can be sure that they are getting the very best of both worlds – the charm and character of a period property, with the convenience and ease of living that modern property design affords. There’s real variety in the living spaces on offer. The apartments are a range of one and two bedroom homes ranging from 688sq ft to over 1100 sq ft. One fortunate buyer will live in the Old Kiln – a superb four storey dwelling with a private garden at the side. The same level of care, attention and finish has been used throughout the site, and the renovation is guaranteed by a (LABC Equivalent), giving buyers peace of mind.

The property benefits from an allocated parking space and an allocated basement storage area.

“What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare?” - these are the opening lines of the world-famous poem Leisure by W H Davies, written in 1911 while he was living in a cottage at Watledge. Today, Nailsworth has changed a great deal since Davies’ time, but there is still much to stand and stare at in the bustling town centre, home to many independent businesses, selling everything from artisan bread, meat and fish to stationery, fashion and handmade jewellery. Nestling at the bottom of steep wooded hills, Nailsworth is now an attractive and vibrant shopping destination, with a large selection of interesting speciality shops and cafes, including the famous Williams Food Hall and Hobbs House Bakery. It is a quirky and friendly town, with a good selection of restaurants, as well as three supermarkets, a regular farmers’ market and a ‘green’ football club. Nailsworth is well positioned for both town and country. Just four miles away is Stroud, with more comprehensive shopping, educational and leisure facilities, connected by bus services. Junctions of the M4 and M5 motorways are within easy reach and railway stations at Stroud (4 miles) and Kemble (10 miles) provide main line services to Gloucester, Swindon and London Paddington.
