Tucked away in a privately owned close within walking distance of the centre of Nailsworth Market Town, sits an impressive row of four grade II listed Cotswold stone period homes. Osborne House is an elegant three storey residence with an attractive Cotswold stone wall and beech hedge to the front. Originally built as a barn, the current handsome facade dates back to the early-mid 19th century. The owners have sympathetically restored and transformed the property creating a stylish modern family home, complemented by the period features such as the tall ceilings, well-proportioned rooms, and sash windows, some with original shutters. Entry is directly into a wide central hallway, with access to the living room, kitchen and dining room, family room and cloakroom. The living room and dining room are both to the front whilst the family room has french doors opening onto the rear garden. The major alterations include a new staircase and the creation of a fantastic open plan fitted kitchen and dining room at the heart of the home. It benefits from a walk-in pantry and has access into the scullery which has another cloakroom, laundry room and further storage. The first floor has an L shaped landing, flooded with natural light. The main bedroom, positioned at the front, has steps down into a large ensuite bathroom. Two further bedrooms on this level have ensuites and upstairs there are two more bedrooms, one is presently used as a teenage den/home office. Also on this level is a shower room. If you wish to live in a period home in town with character features, a fashionable interior, and countryside walks on the doorstep, then this gem of a property is for you.
An attractive curved Cotswold wall with beach hedge encloses the front lawned garden with central gated path leading to the ornate open wrought iron porch and front door. To the rear there is a private enclosed lowmaintenance garden with Cotswold stone boundary wall and bamboo fence which provides privacy to the gravelled and paved patio. A 23 metre long detached Cotswold stone outbuilding including a garage sits across the public foot path. This building is not listed and has exciting potential for renovation or conversion subject to the necessary permissions. The property will be sold with an easement providing three allocated car parking spaces, one with an EV charging point.
