This outstanding example of a Grade II Listed Cotswold Palladian townhouse is thought to have been constructed in the early seventeenth century for the family of one of the stonemasons in Painswick who were responsible for many of the ornate tombs in the churchyard. This helps to explain the rich decoration more usually reserved for the grandest residences that we see adorning this central village property. The name, Croome House, is presumably a later addition harking back to the one-time Lord of the Manor, Thomas Croome, who took the title more than a century after the house was built.
Having been sympathetically modernised by our clients, the principal living accommodation is laid out over four floors. On the ground floor, the part-panelled dining room boasts an open fire with carved stone surround and the contemporary kitchen has granite work tops and a range of integrated appliances including a Rangemaster cooker. The sitting room is on the first floor along with a bedroom suite comprising dressing area and a shower room. There are two further bedrooms and a smart bathroom over the upper two floors in addition to a handy utility room. The cellar has been restored to offer the ideal environment for wine storage with a bespoke unit with capacity for over 200 bottles in addition to temperature controlled cabinets and display shelves.
To the rear, the courtyard garden offers a space to unwind and entertain at the end of the day. There is off road parking for two cars.
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.
