Offered for sale for the first time in nearly 50 years, this truly is a rare opportunity to secure a landmark property situated at the very heart of the village alongside the famous Churchyard. Now offering scope for a new owner to renovate and tailor the accommodation to suit their own preferences, this detached Grade II listed cottage offers charm and character in abundance with open fireplaces, exposed stone walls, A-frame timber roof trusses, stone roof tiles and stone mullion windows all still in situ.
The ground floor is comprised of a sitting room with a fireplace housing a wood burning stove, a dining room with open fireplace and gothic style windows to the rear and a fitted kitchen with door to the rear garden. On the first floor, there are delightful views across neighbouring properties from the landing with two bedrooms and a bathroom all being independently accessible. There are two further bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams on the second floor.
The level rear garden is a true delight for a property at the heart of Painswick and offers a high degree of privacy and is stocked with a range of mature shrubs and flowers. There are two detached stone outbuildings with power and lighting as well as a gardeners closet/boiler room to the rear of the kitchen. A charming oak gate opens to the side for access to the private parking area and a lockable storage room.
Painswick, the “Queen of the Cotswolds”, is a thriving community nestling in a delightful Cotswolds setting. Constructed of locally quarried stone, there are many beautiful buildings dating back as far as the 14th Century. The adjoining 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 2 public houses, 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 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 meeting at the Painswick Centre.
There is a covered well in the garden. Viewers are advised to exercise care and to keep children with them.
