Glass doors lead off the sitting room into a fabulous light filled garden room with access directly to the garden. The kitchen is set to the rear of the property with flagstone floor, oil fired Aga, cream coloured shaker units and lovely views to the garden.

There is also a separate bathroom on this level. There is a third double bedroom on the top floor, with built-in cupboards and en-suite wet room. The garden is set to the rear of the property. An enclosed south facing haven, the garden offers a truly magical space, with large terrace, hot tub and level lawns. There is a good sized shed and the top area of the garden, accessed via a charming arch, offers far reaching valley views. There is a gravel driveway with parking for several cars.
The property is most easily located by leaving Painswick on the A46 in the direction of Cheltenham and on leaving the village turn right signposted towards Sheepscombe. After a short distance, take the first right into The Park where the property can be found about halfway down the lane on the right hand side.
The Park is a charming hamlet on the edge of Painswick, offering the best of both worlds. Tucked away along a quiet lane, the hamlet offers rural peace, whilst still within walking distance of the popular village of Painswick. Often referred to as the Queen of the Cotswolds, Painswick has a tremendous sense of community spirit and a good supply of local amenities including a popular primary school, two pubs, a bijou hotel and a small local restaurant, as well as a newly opened cafe and arts shop. There is also a well stocked village shop, chemist and even a highly acclaimed fabric shop. One of the many attractions to the area are the excellent schools, with grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham, as well as many popular schools in the private sector. The village is popular with tourists and is well known for the beautiful Rococo Gardens and also its Beacon, a huge expanse of common land offering a wonderful source of walks and far reaching views to the Malvern Hills and also host to a popular golf course.
Well placed for commuting, Painswick 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.
