4 St Marys Mead is tucked away within convenient walking distance of the centre of Painswick. The essence of this handsome house is the way it has been designed to let the natural light flood into its well proportioned rooms and the flexible use of space. The front door opens into an impressive entrance hall, flanked by a dual aspect sitting room with a charming bay window overlooking the garden. There is also a study or fourth bedroom and a cloakroom. The spectacular lower ground floor is open-plan with a contemporary fitted kitchen at one end, french windows to the garden and a utility room and shower room off. The remaining bedrooms (two generous sized doubles and a twin bedroom), are on the first floor plus a well appointed bathroom. A real feature of the house is its tasteful presentation and the care the vendors have taken to keep everything at its best. The garden is also a delight and has been subject to considerable investment, to include several different seating areas. Adjacent to the garden is a double garage (side access) with a parking space beyond.
The property is within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is an annual service charge for maintenance of common areas within the development of approximately £300 pa.
From our Painswick Office, head towards Stroud on the A46, passing the village car park on your left. The entrance to St Mary's Mead is on the left about 100 yards after Stamages Lane. 4 St Mary's Mead is on the right hand side, tucked away at the back of the development.
Painswick is delightfully unspoilt. Dominated by its magnifcent church and surrounded by spectacular countryside, the village has an exceptional number of period buildings at its centre, dating from the 17th and 18th Century. St Marys Mead by contrast is a well planned development of just five houses, in an open and spacious setting. Constructed in 2005, great care was taken with the design to reflect the special setting and to ensure the houses remain private and do not intrude on the surrounding properties. Painswick itself has good local facilities and is widely known as a friendly and inclusive community. The village is within 2 hours of London by car and circa 90 minutes by train from Stroud mainline Station. Stroud and its surrounding valleys were recently voted as one of the best places to live in the UK, while Regency Cheltenham is immediately to the north. Cheltenham has excellent shopping, renowned Literature and Music festivals as well as a National Hunt Race Course. Nearby has a large Waitrose plus several other supermarkets, as well as an award winning Farmers Marker, a wide range of independent retailers and a multiplex cinema.
