St Marys House has been lovingly restored by the vendors. Working with the grain of the building they have retained and restored its many period features alongside updating the fixtures, fittings and decor to match 21st century tastes. The result is a home that is an amalgam of all that is best - both old and new. The impressive entrance hall immediately sets the tone for what follows and is flanked by a fine sitting room with an elegant bay window to a west facing balcony and a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen has a central island with quartz work tops, units by Neptune and a pretty terracotta tiled floor. There is also a utility room and a ground floor bathroom leading off the main entrance hall. Upstairs are 4 good sized bedrooms spread over two floors, the master incorporating its bathroom and there is a further shower room. The views from both levels are very special. The lower ground floor provides an additional annexe with its own external access (ideal for Air B&B) and there is a cellar. St Mary's has a well stocked courtyard garden to the side with an outbuilding and there are two private parking spaces nearby.
The property is in a Conservation Area and an Official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
From Murrays' Painswick office, proceed in the direction of Stroud , keeping Painswick Church on your left and St Mary's House will be found on the corner of Stamages Lane on the left hand side, just after the car park.
St Mary's House sits in a prominent setting within a few hundred yards of the centre of Painswick. A naturally handsome building which has stood on this spot for over 200 years, its walls speak of history, something for which the village with its wealth of old buildings is justifiably famous. Set in an unspoilt valley between Stroud and Cheltenham, Stroud has recently been recognised by The Sunday Times as one of the most desirable places to live in England. Painswick has good local facilities, including a challenging 18 hole golf course and is a thriving community. St Mary's House is within easy walking distance of the heart of the village, its shops and places to eat including 'The Painswick' boutique Hotel, with its award winning restaurant, as well as being within in a short walk of open countryside and a network of public footpaths. Both Cheltenham and Stroud have Waitrose stores as well as other supermarkets. London is accessible within 2 hours by road or circa 90 minutes by train into London Paddington, from Stroud station; it is also within easy commuting distance from Bristol and the Midlands, via the M5 motorway.
