This charming late 19th Century mill worker's cottage occupies an idyllic setting on the edge of Painswick, above the tranquil waters of its Mill pond. Deservedly listed Grade II, it is detached and offset by a pretty garden which runs to the water's edge. Behind its handsome dressed stone facade is an interior of real character and high ceilings. It is freshly presented and practically laid out. An external 'stable door' leads to the entrance porch which in turn opens into the generous sized sitting room, with gas fired stove and extensive book shelves. It is open-plan to the adjacent kitchen (fitted with painted shaker style units), which in turns lead to a utility area and a further reception room or fourth bedroom with a cloaks/shower room opposite. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a bathroom with a further double bedroom and a bathroom on the top floor.
The cottage is surrounded by its own land with parking for one or more cars. The garden is level with a sun terrace overlooking the mill pond and has a summer house. There is a substantial timber outbuilding providing good storage space at the rear.
Painswick Mill Cottage is listed Grade II and within the Cotswold Area of Outstandning Natural Beauty.

Painswick is widely considered a desirable Cotswold village in which to live. Conveniently located between Stroud and Cheltenham in an unofficial area of outstanding natural beauty, the village has an exceptional number of fine old buildings. It straggles down to the Painswick stream at the foot of the valley where Painswick Mill Cottage is situated, in a most delightful tranquil setting, close to open countryside. The village offers much for its residents. A challenging 18 hole golf course, good local services including places to eat out (notably The Painswick Hotel) and has a vibrant community spirit with much going on. The area is highly accessible, with London circa two hours by car or 90 minutes by train, from nearby Stroud station, into London Paddington; there is good access to the M5 motorway either at Junction 11A or 13. Cheltenham immediately to the north, offers excellent shopping, theatre, its renown Literature Festival (among others) as well as its famous National Hunt race course. There are lovely walks in the immediate vicinity of Painswick Mill Cottage.
