LOCATION
The location of Pincot House is one of its key attributes. Nestled along a quiet country lane to the south of Painswick and on the outskirts of Pitchcombe, the property is surrounded by glorious Cotswold countryside; rolling hills, handsome period homes and pretty historic English churches. This is English country living at its finest.

Within easy reach of Pitchcombe and Painswick, both villages have welcoming communities and host numerous local events. Painswick can be accessed via a five minute drive or on foot across a network of footpaths. With several thriving cafes, a boutique hotel and village shop, Painswick is a great weekend walking destination for a coffee and catch up with friends. Painswick Beacon also hosts a popular golf course and the Rococo Gardens are well worth a visit.

Stroud is less than ten minutes drive away and is well-known across the Cotswolds as an artistic hub with a unique bohemian vibe and was voted the 'best place to live' by the Sunday Times. Stroud has several leading supermarkets, including Waitrose, as well as sporting facilities, independent retailers and an award winning Saturday Farmers Market. Cheltenham is also within a 20 minute drive and offers excellent shopping, restaurants and theatre, as well as numerous music and arts festivals and racing at its the renowned National Hunt racecourse.

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 broad choice of schools in the private sector. Cheltenham has several popular private schools including Cheltenham Ladies and Cheltenham College and there there is also Wycliffe in Stonehouse and Beaudesert Park in nearby Minchinhampton. School buses run along the A46 to most of the local schools in both the private and state sector. There is also a popular village primary school in nearby Painswick.

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

DIRECTIONS
From our Painswick office take the A46 in the direction of Stroud and take the first left into Stamages Lane by the village car park. Follow the lane down the hill and up Stepping Stone lane the other side. At the top of the hill at the T junction, turn right onto Wick Street. After less than half a mile, take the first right into Pincot Lane. Pincot House will be found on the left hand side approximately quarter of a mile along the lane, identified by iron gates and a gravel drive. Alternatively, the property can be located via the what3words app: ///king.clinking.drivers

DESCRIPTION
Pincot House offers the rare opportunity to purchase a sensational country house in a stunning rural location, together with separate self-contained cottage and historic barn. Magnificent in its current glory, the property offers a wealth of further opportunity with planning in place to extend the main house and a fabulous barn, ideal for conversion.

Steeped in history with period charm throughout, the property opens into an impressive reception hall with exceptional feature fireplace spanning the depth of the room. Ideal as a spacious reception area, this space works equally well as a charming snug or dining room. The main reception is a wonderful 'statement room' with a new orangery added by the current owners and a sensational space for entertaining family and friends. A show-stopping room, this light filled space offers quintessential English countryside views looking towards the village of Pitchcombe with its pretty Cotswold church and a patchwork of green fields. An original fireplace adds character and warmth, offering the perfect 'cosy up' for the winter months, making this an ideal room for all seasons.

The farmhouse style kitchen has ample room for a large table with cream shaker style units, original fireplace and traditional belfast sink. A spacious boot room/utility plus a cloakroom with WC, leads off the kitchen.

Three bedrooms are located off the principal staircase leading from the reception hall and a fourth bedroom is accessed via a separate staircase off the kitchen. All of the bedrooms are well-proportioned with ample light and a plethora of period charm including pretty leaded mullion windows and original fireplaces. The principal bedroom is en-suite and there is also a family bathroom.

A self-contained cottage offers overflow accommodation for visitors or an ideal home office. Comprising an upper level reception room/home office, kitchen/breakfast room and a ground floor bedroom with en-suite, the accommodation would also work well as an income generator/Airbnb.

A charming barn steeped in history with wonderful aged beams offers multiple storage rooms across two levels and is ideally set out to provide a separate dwelling/ further accommodation/indoor pool/gym (subject to planning).

The grounds are a real feature of the property with several seating areas from which to sit and relax and enjoy the views, hot tub and raised paddock area. Iron railing and gates open to a sweeping drive with ample parking and a wooden carport for two cars.
