Believed to date from around 1875 this charming and secluded detached Cotswold stone cottage has been the subject of an extensive programme of renovation and re-modelling and now offers well-presented and balanced accommodation whilst retaining scope for further extensions if so desired (STPP).
The ground floor accommodation is comprised of a modern kitchen, a useful utility area and a spacious sitting room with imposing inglenook fireplace at one end housing a modern wood burning stove. On the first floor, the ceilings have been raised to create a feeling of space and light for the two bedrooms whilst a family bathroom completes the principal accommodation.
The gardens are a particular attraction having been lovingly landscaped to offer level lawns surrounded by deep, well-stocked shrub borders; a vegetable area with raised beds and mature fruit trees; a willow shelter and several sitting areas ideal for taking in the views across the Painswick Valley. There are two stone outbuildings currently used as stores and a workshop in addition to a disused WC.
Painswick, the “Queen of the Cotswolds”, is a thriving community nestling in a delightful Cotswolds setting. Constructed of mellow locally quarried stone, the town has many beautiful buildings dating back as far as the 14th Century. Painswick Churchyard is famous for its impressive array of table tombs and its 99 yew trees about which folklore holds that if a 100th should grow the devil will pull it out. The Village offers a playgroup and primary school with many secondary schools (including grammar schools) being available in the surrounding towns of Stroud, Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester. There are several local shops, galleries, tearooms and restaurants in the village along with a pharmacy, doctors’ surgery and dentists whilst the surrounding towns provide a good range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes and budgets.
Recreational opportunities include tennis, rugby and bowls clubs with many other groups including badminton and amateur dramatics meeting at the Painswick Centre. In the wider area, events include polo at Edgeworth and Cirencester Park, racing at Prestbury Park, eventing at Gatcombe and sailing at the Cotswold Water Park, together with shooting and fishing on local estates and golf at Gloucester and Painswick Golf Clubs.
