This delightful detached period house is approached by a track over common land and sitting in an elevated plot affording superb views across the Painswick Valley. Thought to date from the 1700s, the house offers a pleasing combination of period details including exposed stonework and ceiling beams sitting comfortably alongside modern comforts such as a Morso wood-burning stove and powder-coated aluminium double glazing.
The ground floor accommodation is comprised of a kitchen/breakfast room that is flooded with light from the adjacent conservatory which affords panoramic views across the valley, a double-aspect dining room and a welcoming sitting room with stone fireplace housing the wood-burning stove. On the first floor, there are three evenly-sized bedrooms and a contemporary family bathroom whilst a storage room could be used to create an en suite shower room. A study/hallway and cloakroom on the ground floor complete the accommodation.
