The Property

Located in the sought after village of Painswick, renowned for its quintessential architecture and proximity to the Cotswold Way, lies this cosy semi-detached home.

During their tenure, the current owners have renovated and upgraded the accommodation to now provide a unique period home, offering ideal accommodation for a lock up and leave property, with ease of access to the array of local amenities. Unlike many homes within Painswick, the house enjoys fantastic gated parking as well as a pretty and low maintenance courtyard garden. A part glazed entrance porch provides the main approach into the house and offers invaluable hanging space/storage. This then opens into a sociable kitchen/dining room. With a double aspect outlook, including a large stone mullion window to the front elevation, the room provides excellent opportunity for entertaining. The kitchen has been fitted with both wall and base, shaker style cabinets whilst a breakfast bar offers further seating and storage. Other features include granite worktops and an integral oven and hob, there is space for a fridge/freezer. A walkway with integral Oak shelving leads through to the sitting room, whilst a glazed door opens to the inner hall. The Sitting Room is equally charming, being laid with oak flooring and enjoying a double aspect outlook. French doors open to the enclosed courtyard. A useful utility room and downstairs cloakroom are also located on this level. From the hall a stylish Oak and glass staircase rises to the first floor, where a pretty landing area with more built in shelving offers the ideal spot to sit down and enjoy a good book.
