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. 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. Recreational opportunities include tennis, rugby and bowls clubs with many other groups including badminton, table tennis and pilates 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 Painswick and Minchinhampton Golf Clubs. 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. There are several local shops, galleries, tearooms and restaurants in the village along with a pharmacy and doctors’ and dentists' surgeries whilst the surrounding towns provide a good range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes and budgets.
Gyde House is set in over 4.5 acres of beautifully maintained grounds that are mainly laid to lawns interspersed by specimen trees. There are wide gravelled terraces adjacent to the main building with many alcoves and courtyards offering a charming environment to relax.
The apartment has two allocated parking spaces, one of which is covered.
The property is held on a 999 year lease from 1 January 2001. The service charge for the period 1 June 2018 to 30 November 2018 was £1,476.89.
