Having originally been a pair of modest workers cottages, Yewricks has been extensively and sympathetically extended and modernised by our clients to now offer bright and spacious contemporary living space all finished to a most appealing quality. Externally, much of the Cotswold character has been carefully retained through the use of Cotswold roof tiles, lime mortar, powder coated casement windows and an oak porch however internally the house offers a much more contemporary perspective incorporating high quality materials including limestone and oak flooring and sumptuous bathroom and kitchen fittings.
On entering the hallway from the oak-framed porch, the galleried landing creates a sense of space and light that continues throughout the house. The triple aspect sitting room has a fireplace with oak bresummer beam and multi-fuel stove and double doors opening to the timber-framed conservatory whilst the 27’ kitchen/breakfast room features a cream AGA and bespoke oak units topped by granite work surfaces. The dining room and study are both evenly proportioned and have stone fireplaces. The master bedroom suite has a vaulted ceiling and two banks of built-in wardrobes with a luxurious en suite bathroom comprised of a double ended bath, a pair of sink units and a spacious walk-in shower. There are two more bedroom suites with a family bathroom serving the remaining bedrooms.
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. Painswick offers several local shops, galleries, tearooms and restaurants along with a pharmacy, doctors’ surgery and dentists whilst the surrounding towns provide a good range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes and budgets including the award-winning Farmers Market in Stroud. Cheltenham is the main regional centre and offers festivals throughout the year embracing topics ranging from racing to literature and music to science.

Occupying a plot extending to 0.47 of an acre in total, the gardens have been meticulously laid out for ease and enjoyment with a deep paved terrace adjacent to the house that offers the perfect setting for al fresco entertaining, gravelled paths, a water feature and generous areas of lawns with dry stone wall terraces and boundaries and well stocked shrub beds. A “Breeze House” at the top of the garden offers wonderful views across the valley towards the church at Cranham.
