A rare opportunity to secure a truly charming cottage in the heart of Painswick within a stone's throw of St Marys Church. Constructed from local stone under a stone tile roof with mullion windows and an elegant door canopy, the cottage is the epitome of Cotswold architecture.
On the ground floor there are two evenly proportioned reception rooms and a kitchen with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. There is a third bedroom on the upper floor accessed via a large landing area that has previously been used as a workshop. A cloakroom and pantry complete the accommodation. The cottage, possibly built in the 1930s, has been in the same ownership for many years and would now benefit from some modernisation.
The southerly aspect garden is a particular attraction of the property. Gently sloping away from the house, there are three lawned areas bordered by deep, well stocked shrub borders with a vegetable patch at the end where the path leads down to the gated parking area.
Painswick, the “Queen of the Cotswolds”, is a thriving community nestling in a delightful setting. Constructed of mellow locally quarried stone, the town has many beautiful buildings dating back as far as the 1300s. The 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, doctors’ surgery and dentists whilst the surrounding towns provide a good range of amenities to suit all tastes and budgets including the award winning Farmers Market in Stroud. Painswick has a playgroup and primary school with many secondary schools (including grammar schools) being available in the surrounding towns of Stroud, Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester. Cheltenham is the regional centre offering a comprehensive range of social, recreational and retail amenities in addition to festivals throughout the year embracing topics ranging from racing to literature and music to science. 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, racing at Prestbury Park and sailing at the Cotswold Water Park, fishing on local estates and golf at Minchinhampton and Painswick Golf Clubs.
Note: Although the house is not a listed building, part of the wall on the West side of the garden and the detached store room are both Grade II Listed.
