Dating from 1720, this superb Grade II Listed attached house is a fine example of local early Georgian architecture and was believed to have been built for a member of the Loveday family who were well-respected Painswick cloth merchants. Behind its obvious external appeal, the property is laden with period charm and details as well as offering balanced and characterful accommodation with the added convenience of a level garden and off-road parking all within close proximity of the village centre.
The ashlar stone facade is a splendid example of the architectural features of its period including balanced proportions with v-joint quoins, detailed cornices and a handsome front door with ornately carved supports and frieze over. On entering, both ground floor reception rooms have ornate cornices, shuttered sash windows and polished oak flooring with one having an ornate carved stone fireplace whilst the other has marble surrounds set in ornate timber panelling incorporating a carved mantle with frieze over and flanked by niche display shelves with domed tops. The kitchen is laid out across two areas with range cooker and sink on one side and food preparation and storage areas on the other. The grand turned oak staircase leads to the first and second floors, each of which offers two good sized bedrooms and a bathroom with three of the bedrooms having period fireplaces. The cellar has been fitted to serve as a spacious utility room whilst a ground floor cloak/shower room completes the accommodation.
To the side is a flagstone parking space which has gate piers with acanthus-carved vase finials. A pedestrian gate leads to the garden that is laid to a level lawn with well stocked borders and an outstanding outlook across the Painswick Valley. A pathway continues to the rear where there are two stone outhouses.
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. 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. The Village offers a playgroup and primary school with many secondary schools being available in the surrounding towns in including grammar schools in Stroud, Cheltenham and Gloucester. Recreational opportunities include tennis, golf, rugby and bowls clubs with many other groups meeting at the Painswick Centre. There are two public houses, several local shops, galleries, tearooms and restaurants in the village whilst a wider range of retail outlets are all available in nearby Stroud.
