DESCRIPTION
Superbly located, Long Close offers a rare opportunity to renovate a period property in an exceptional location. With stunning views towards Painswick and the Stroud Valley, the position of this home is truly magical. Tucked away off the tranquil Greenhouse Lane, the property is accessed via a sweeping drive, opening to a good sized gravel parking area. A reception hall with cloakroom off, opens to a spacious farmhouse style kitchen with lovely views over the garden and towards Painswick. With ample room for a large dining table and fitted with a Rayburn oven, the potential of this room to create a fabulous hub of the house and an ideal space for entertaining family and friends, is obvious. Double doors open to a side patio area and a further door to the front garden, perfect for alfresco dining. A large utility leads off the kitchen. There are two reception rooms, both with character features including pretty fireplaces, aged beams and window seats, providing an ideal spot to relax with a book or enjoy the view. A rear hall provides one of two staircases for accessing the first floor where four bedrooms are located, two of which are en-suite, plus a family bathroom. The principal suite has a large dressing room with magnificent valley views, an ideal space to incorporate into the bedroom or convert to a fabulous en-suite offering the opportunity to soak in the bath whilst soaking up the panorama.

Outside, the good sized garden is predominantly to the front and side of the house plus a substantial area of lawn running alongside the drive. The garden was clearly once much loved and has the potential to create a super English country garden. Enclosed by hedgerow and fencing, the garden is surrounded by rolling fields, offering a haven of tranquiltiy. Several seating areas offer ideal spots for a morning coffee or evening drinks. There is a large double garage with store room off. The garage is ideally positioned to be incorporated into living space, subject to the necessary planning consent.

LOCATION
The location of Long Close is quite simply, exceptional. Tucked away off Greenhouse Lane, this quiet country lane is one of Painswick's best kept secrets. Within walking distance of the village yet surrounded by open countryside, this tranquil rural haven offers the best of all worlds. The views from Long Close looking towards Painswick, often referred to as The Queen of the Cotswolds, are magnificent - regal and worthy of its namesake.

Painswick is a quintessentially pretty Cotswold village. Steeped in history, the village offers all that is best about village life; a thriving and welcoming community with an abundance of local events, two pubs, village shops and several cafes. There is a boutique hotel within walking distance of Long Close, offering fine-dining to non residents and a popular golf course on the nearby Painswick Beacon. One of the key draws to the area is the excellent choice of schools in both the state and private sector with sought after grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham and a popular primary school in Painswick itself. In the private sector, there is a good choice of schools in Cheltenham as well as Wycliffe in Stonehouse and Beaudesert Park in Minchinhampton. School buses run from the centre of the village to most of the local schools in both the private and state sector. Stroud is the nearest town with excellent facilities including a Waitrose supermarket plus several other leading supermarkets, a multiplex cinema and award winning Saturday Farmers Market. Cheltenham is also easily accessible from Long Close, well known for its National Hunt race course and arts and literature festivals, as well as excellent shopping, restaurants and theatre.

Well placed for commuting, Painswick is circa 90 minutes to London by train from nearby Stroud mainline station and approximately 20 minutes drive from Cheltenham and Gloucester. The M5 motorway is also within easy reach, for commuting to Bristol and the Midlands.

DIRECTIONS
From our Painswick office head into the centre of the village, turning right down the hill in front of the ARC and before the village shop, into Tibbiwell Lane. Follow Tibbiwell Lane down the steep hill leading directly into Greenhouse Lane. Follow Greenhouse lane for less than half a mile up the hill and the entrance to Long Close will be found on the right hand side.

AGENT'S NOTE
A further 0.5 acre is available adjacent to the property by separate negotiation. Please speak to agent for more details.
