A charming detached cottage occupying a delightful and secluded setting in this sought after village that is now in need of a comprehensive programme of modernisation and renovation (STPP) offering superb views of the surrounding pastures and National Trust-owned beech woodlands.
Believed to be on the open market for the first time, the house is traditionally constructed of squared and coursed limestone under a Cotswold stone tile roof. The ground floor offers a sitting room overlooking the gardens and a kitchen/breakfast room with fireplace housing a range cooker (de-commissioned). On the first floor there is a bedroom and bathroom with a second generous bedroom on the top floor along with a single bedroom/box room. The property is set in the corner of the plot with gently sloping gardens to the rear and side of the house.
Sheepscombe is a delightful Cotswold Village to the East of Painswick nestling in an enchanting valley and sheltered by mature broadleaved woodlands. Comprised of several hamlets, the village boasts a fine public house in The Butchers Arms which has an excellent reputation for its food and ambiance whilst the primary school, church, village hall and cricket club all provide a hub for many groups, events and activities.
Sheepscombe is around 5 miles from Stroud with Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester 8, 10 and 13 miles respectively all of which are accessed via the nearby A46 or A417. The surrounding towns provide a comprehensive range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes. Education options in the local area are strong in both the private and state sectors with independent schools including Kings School, Wycliffe College, Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College and Dean Close whilst there are Grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham.
