A delightful Cotswold stone cottage in an elevated location offering beautifully presented accommodation over three floors with a delightful landscaped garden and superb views across the Painswick Valley.
The accommodation is laid out over three floors with the ground floor being comprised of a dining room with flagstone floors and a stable door to the rear garden, a sitting room with oak flooring and an impressive Inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove and a kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of sleek white units topped by granite work surfaces. On the first floor, there are two bedrooms and a shower room whilst a spiral staircase leads to the principal bedroom suite that has charming far-reaching views and an en suite bathroom.
The rear garden is a particular attraction of the cottage. A lilac slate seating area leads to two separate level lawns which are linked by steps and surrounded by mature well-stocked shrub borders and a small vegetable patch. There is a handy garden shed and a summerhouse, which is ideal for use as a home studio or workshop, with mains electricity and lighting. Adjacent to this is a seating area sheltered by a pergola draped with wisteria whilst a third seating area offers panoramic views across the Painswick Valley
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.
There are two fine public houses, 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 amenities to suit all tastes and budgets including the award winning Farmers Market in Stroud. Painswick has a playgroup and primary school with many secondary schools (including grammar schools) being available in the surrounding towns of Stroud, Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester. Cheltenham is the main regional centre offering a comprehensive range of social, recreational and retail amenities in addition to festivals throughout the year embracing topics ranging from racing to literature and music to science. Recreational opportunities nearby 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, racing at Prestbury Park and sailing at the Cotswold Water Park, together with shooting and fishing on local estates and golf at Painswick and Minchinhampton Golf Clubs.
