A truly idyllic property on the outskirts of Painswick set in a plot extending to around 2.4 acres and offering panoramic rural views across the Painswick and Sheepscombe Valleys. Coming to the market for the first time, this unique attached property has been lovingly and skilfully created by the vendor to offer charm and detail at every opportunity and makes extensive use of reclaimed or re-purposed materials alongside traditionally engineered bespoke craftsmanship.
On entering through the hand-made front door, the entrance hall is over-looked by a useful galleried area accessed via a ladder with reclaimed church floor flagstones running through into the open plan living area. The living space offers ample room for a dining table and benches and a relaxed seating area focussed around the wood-burning stove with hand-built oak and elm kitchen cabinets running along one wall topped by slate work surfaces incorporating a Belfast sink and a modern 4-oven Everhot range oven. The ceiling is vaulted with exposed oak beams and oak-framed leaded light windows run along one wall flooding the room with light and affording delightful views into the gardens and beyond with French doors opening onto the paved terrace.
There are three bedrooms, all with views into the gardens and beyond and a unique shower room featuring a shower enclosure with stone shower tray, mosaic wall tiling and slate sides. An attic room accessed from the gallery over the entrance hall extend across two bedrooms providing excellent storage and scope to create additional accommodation (subject to permissions).
The Park is a small hamlet situated around half a mile North of Painswick. Painswick, the “Queen of the Cotswolds”, is a thriving community nestling in a delightful Cotswolds setting. Largely constructed from 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. There are several local shops, galleries, tearooms and restaurants in the village whilst a wider range of retail outlets are all available in nearby Stroud. The Village offers a playgroup and primary school with many secondary schools (including independent and grammar schools) being available in the surrounding towns of Stroud, Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester. Recreational opportunities nearby include tennis, rugby, golf and bowls clubs with many other groups meeting at the Painswick Centre. In the wider area, events include polo at Edgeworth, racing at Prestbury Park, eventing at Gatcombe Park and shooting and fishing on local estates and whilst Cheltenham host festivals throughout the year embracing topics ranging from racing to literature and music to science.
The private rear garden has a terrace adjacent to the house ideally placed for al fresco entertaining with steps down to a level lawn surrounded by mature trees and well-stocked borders. A second terrace is ideally located to catch the evening sun whilst overlooking the surrounding countryside. Beyond the dry stone walled garden there is an extensive area of pasture with separate accesses from the entrance drive and the parking area.
Approached over a private driveway running through trees, the property has ample parking for several vehicles to the front. A useful storage shed is situated to the front of the house.
The property has mains water and electricity with private drainage, electric water heating and solid-fuel room heating.
