On the first floor, there are four evenly sized bedrooms all of which currently accommodate double beds. There is an en suite shower room to the master bedroom whilst the family bathroom that serves the other rooms has marble surfaces. A ground floor cloakroom, a utility room with door to a useful covered passageway and a boarded loft complete the accommodation.
Painswick, the “Queen of the Cotswolds”, is a thriving community nestling in a delightful Cotswolds setting. 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 a wider range of retail outlets and an award-winning Farmers Market are all available in nearby Stroud. The Croft Primary School and the adjacent playgroup are within a half a mile walk with a wide range of secondary schools in both state and private sector being available in the surrounding towns including grammar schools in Stroud, Cheltenham and Gloucester. Recreations in the village include tennis, rugby, bowls, badminton, table tennis and pilates. Painswick is about 3 miles from Stroud and 7.5, 10 and 16 miles from Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester respectively.
Doors from both the sitting room and dining room open to a spacious elevated terrace enclosed by timber posts with discrete wire balustrades that is the ideal setting for entertaining or simply relaxing and taking in the superb views across the Painswick Valley at the end of the day. The gently sloping gardens are a particular feature of the property and have been carefully laid out to offer lawns bordered by well-stocked borders and interspersed with mature trees whilst several sheltered seating areas have been created to make the most of the delightful views. To the front, there are further lawns with ample parking in the carriage driveway.
