A truly adorable Grade II Listed semi-detached cottage in the heart of Painswick presented in immaculate order and with views over the famous churchyard. The property manages to cleverly combine period charm and features such as exposed beams and leaded windows with contemporary style and decor with the ground floor accommodation being comprised of a beautiful kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke painted shaker units topped by granite surfaces and a range of integrated stainless steel appliances and an elegant reception room featuring an inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove whilst a first floor sitting room also has a fireplace with an impressive stone surround. The principal bedroom is on the first floor along with a luxurious bathroom whilst there are two further bedrooms, both with vaulted ceilings, and a bathroom with free-standing roll-top bath on the top floor.
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.
The Village offers a playgroup and primary school with many secondary schools (including grammar schools) being available in the surrounding towns of Stroud, Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester. Recreational opportunities 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 Painswick and Minchinhampton Golf Clubs.
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 along with a pharmacy and doctors’ and dentists' surgeries whilst the surrounding towns provide a good range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes and budgets.
The part-walled garden is laid out to offer year-round attraction with a paved terrace adjacent to the house that opens to a large gravelled courtyard bordered by low box hedges and mature shrub borders stocked with standard bay trees, numerous topiary evergreens and hellebores with a gazebo in one corner delightfully draped by a climbing clematis. A stone outbuilding runs along one wall comprised of a studio, storeroom and a gardener's WC but could be ideal for use as a home office or similar (subject to consents).
