Barton End House is an imposing attached Grade II listed residence situated in a private position above Nailsworth at sought after Barton End. This elevated location allows for straightforward access to the shops, amenities and community of the town with countryside walks on the doorstep. The property is the larger, older part of a large Georgian fronted building that dates back to the mid 1600s and is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone, with substantial character accommodation arranged over three floors. The main part of the house comprises an entrance area, inner hall, four good reception rooms, 22’ kitchen/family room with lovely bespoke units, utility room, cloakroom/WC on the ground floor, with a cellar below. A staircase leads up from the inner hall to the first floor, with three good bedrooms, a WC and bathroom on this floor, and two further double bedrooms and a shower room at the top of the house, on the second floor. There are also two other living spaces within the property - two areas that are currently arranged as one bedroomed living spaces - but these could easily be re-incorporated into the main living space should a buyer choose to. There are some wonderful character features found throughout the house and the flexible layout could suit many different buyers. There is also a detached cottage within the grounds of Barton End House. This is arranged over three floors, and comprises a large kitchen/living area, sitting room, bathroom and three bedrooms. This is bound to appeal to purchasers wanting multi generation living or looking to generate an income with holiday letting.
The property benefits from extensive gardens and grounds. These extend to some five acres (as we are informed by the owner but are waiting confirmation), and include family gardens, woodland, lots of space to park and outbuildings. The driveway serves both this and the neighbouring property initially, and then splits and leads on to Barton End House. The house is then on the right, and the cottage and a detached coach house are on the left. This comprises a 30’ workshop/garage, tack room, former stable and two studio spaces above, a WC and two further stone built stores, with plenty of room to park to the front here. There is a Victorian walled garden beyond this, with lots of productive growing space found here. There is a good family garden too, and this is by the house, with access from the sitting room, this is well planted with established trees and shrubs, and leads on to a further garden area with stone steps that lead back up to the walled garden. The woodland extends in a crescent shape behind the cottage, coach house and walled garden and is a wonderful place for children to play and camp.
The house enjoys an elevated location above Nailsworth, which has become an increasingly popular shopping destination within the Stroud Valleys. The town benefits from a large selection of speciality shops including Williams Food Hall, the famous Hobbs House Bakery, The Yellow Lighted Bookshop, various clothing and gift shops, several cafes and a good selection of very well regarded restaurants. In addition to this the town currently benefits from three supermarkets and free parking. There is both state and private schooling within the area and bus services connect with Stroud, some four miles away, where there is a more comprehensive selection of shopping, educational and leisure facilities. 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.
