DESCRIPTION
Wragg Castle Farm is a superbly proportioned 17th Century country home, beautifully laid out and meticulously renovated by the current owners. Believed to be located on the site of the former Wragg Castle, it is thought the house was built using stone from the ruin and even incorporates one of the castle's staircases. A good sized boot room opens into a delightful kitchen, an immediately welcoming room which is clearly the heart of the home. A green Aga provides a warming focal point and aged flagstone flooring creates a sense of warmth and character. Painted units with wooden worktops, provide ample storage and a belfast sink overlooks the paddock and far reaching views, framed by beautiful leaded mullion windows. There is room for a good sized kitchen table, perfect for family suppers and informal gatherings. An inner hall leads to the drawing room. Beautifully proportioned and with a handsome inglenook fireplace and elm flooring, the drawing room provides a wonderful space for entertaining family and friends. Underfloor heating runs throughout the ground floor and a cloakroom and large utility lead off the boot room. Believed to have formerly been the dairy, the dining room leads off the opposite side of the kitchen and provides a wonderful space for more formal entertaining. Steps lead up to a stunning oak framed vaulted garden room, the perfect space to relax with a coffee and a good book. A study provides a good sized home office, which works equally well as a snug.

Two separate staircases lead to the first floor where 3 bedrooms are located, each with en-suite and fabulous views over open countryside and the valley beyond. The principal suite is a particularly magnificent dual aspect room with high ceiling, historic fireplace and stunning panelling, thought to date back to the Jacobean era. A fabulous aged stone spiral staircase believed to date back to the 14th Century, leads to the second floor and a fourth bedroom plus a large bathroom. An attic room, fully boarded with oak flooring and magnificent beams, provides extensive storage but would work equally well as a teenage den or playroom.

A two storey workshop, formerly the granary, adjoins the oak framed reception hall. Currently used as a workshop and store, the building would make an ideal annexe (subject to the necessary building consent). Beautifully landscaped, the grounds total circa 5.5 acres, with the former piggery providing a delightful covered seating area, a large patio, ideal for alfresco dining, water features and well-stocked borders and topiary. Fruit trees, a kitchen garden, wild flower garden, greenhouse and potting shed, complete the formal grounds and there is also a paddock enveloping the southern side of the house. A gravel drive culminating in a parking/turning area, provides ample parking.

LOCATION
Wragg Castle Farm is situated in an elevated position between the villages of Pitchcombe and Painswick in a unique and charming small group of similarly historic properties. The house is surrounded by glorious Cotswold countryside; rolling hills and pretty, historic 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 two 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, Wragg Castle Farm 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.
