Greenacres is a substantial and elegantly proportioned detached family house offering generous and versatile accommodation over three storeys. The house typifies Victorian architecture and has retained many of its period features including sash windows, timber and stone fireplaces, quarry stone tiled floors and an impressive “flying” staircase. The drawing room and dining room both have bay windows overlooking the formal garden whilst the sitting room and kitchen/breakfast room offer a more informal side to the house. There are five bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor with a further two bedrooms, a large games room, a bathroom, study, and a store room on the second floor. The property now offers scope for the new owner to modernise and improve the accommodation to suit their preferences.
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 surrounding towns provide a comprehensive range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes 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.
Painswick has a Playgroup and The Croft Primary School whilst education options in the wider area are particularly strong in both the private and state sectors with independent schools including Kings School, Wycliffe College, Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College and Dean Close whilst there are Grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham. 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 social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes and budgets. Recreational opportunities in the village 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 Gloucester and Painswick Golf Clubs
Sitting on a plot extending to approximately 1/3 of an acre, the gardens offer a delightful combination of formal and informal environments. The principal elevation of the house has French doors opening onto a paved terrace overlooking the formal gardens that have been laid out with a combination of beds and paths all surrounded by mature yew hedging. Beyond this, there are further shrub borders and a large level lawn with a wildlife pond at one end. A substantial timber orangery on the Easterly elevation of the house has a mature and productive grapevine, fig and olive trees. There is off road parking for several vehicles to the front of the house.
