Upper Cottage offers a charming Grade II Listed cottage in the heart of the popular village of Painswick, with character features around every turn. The pretty cottage is entered via a historic arched door, leading to a flagstone reception hall with access to the garage. To the rear of the hall is a kitchen overlooking a private courtyard garden and a cloakroom with shower leading off the back hallway. The sitting room is dual aspect and accessed via the main reception hall and also via another charmingly historic door to the front aspect. A fabulous inglenook fireplace with huge stone lintel over, creates a wonderful focal point to the room. Lead mullion windows at both ends of the room create a light filled room and window seats and beams add character and charm. Stairs lead off the sitting room to two first floor bedrooms, again with many period features, including a stunning fireplace in the front facing bedroom, with lovely views down Tibbiwell Lane and to the valley beyond. There is also a bathroom on this level. The top floor has two further good sized bedrooms, both with built-in cupboard space and far reaching views.
To the front of the property there is a cobbled parking space for one car plus a garage. To the rear of the property there is a delightful walled courtyard garden, offering a super private space, perfect for alfresco living.
From our Painswick office, head into the centre of the village via Victoria Street curving around to the left joining St Mary's Street and take the first right into Tibbiwell Lane. Upper Cottage is the second property at the top of the hill on the left with the parking space and garage.
Painswick is often referred to as the Queen of the Cotswolds and Upper Cottage is one of the village's many fine examples of a stunning Grade II listed home. Tibbiwell Lane is situated in the heart of the village, with magical and far reaching views down the lane and to the valley beyond. Upper Cottage is ideally located for the many local amenities, just a couple of minutes walk from the village shop, two popular pubs, a bijou hotel and small local restaurant . The village also has a chemist, two coffee shops and fabric shop, all within a short walk of the cottage.
One of the key draws to the area is the excellent choice of schools, with grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham, as well as many popular schools in the private sector.
Popular with tourists, the area abounds with wonderful country walks along the Cotswold Way and has many local attractions, including the Rococo Gardens and Painswick Beacon, host to a popular golf course and with far reaching views to the Malvern Hills.
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.
