A detached chalet bungalow standing in an elevated 1/3 acre plot offering superb far-reaching views across the Painswick Valley and surrounded by open countryside yet with easy access to the multitude of facilities on offer in Stroud. Originally built in the 1930s, the house has been extended on two occasions and now offers well-presented and versatile accommodation with further scope to extend or improve (STPP).
The ground floor is comprised of a sitting room with stripped wood flooring and a real-flame fire in a stone surround, a study with French doors to the garden, a dining room that opens to the kitchen and has a stable door leading to the utility room, a spacious bedroom with square bay window and a shower room. There are two further bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.
Historically, Wick Street was the main road from Stroud to Painswick but was superseded by the current road some 200 years ago and is now a very scenic route clinging onto the edge of the Painswick valley. Painswick is a thriving community nestling in a delightful Cotswolds setting offering a playgroup and primary school whilst education options in the wider area are particularly strong in the private and state sectors with independent schools including Kings School, Wycliffe College, Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College and Dean Close and Grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham. There are several local shops, galleries, tearooms and restaurants in the village whilst the surrounding towns provide a good range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes and budgets. Recreational opportunities in the village include tennis, rugby and bowls clubs with many other groups including badminton and amateur dramatics meeting at the Painswick Centre.
Stroud is a cosmopolitan market town that has been referred to as "Notting Hill with wellies" reflecting the eclectic mix of commerce and people in the town and the strong sense of identity. With numerous supermarket chains sitting alongside independent outlets, a leisure centre, multi-screen cinema complex, trains to Paddington (around 95 minutes), an award-winning Farmers Market and unspoilt dramatic scenery in all directions, Stroud has something to offer for everyone.
Until recently, the owners ran the Bastet Cattery from the premises with 16 well-maintained individual pens with heated chalets, outdoor runs and other facilities offering scope for the new owner to do likewise if they wish.
