4 bedroom town house for sale



Property Description

Full description

THE PROPERTY Number 42 Long Street is a Grade II Listed Period town house, oak framed, dating from the early 14th Century, with a substantial 16th Century stone extension. The accommodation ranges over three floors with the upper floor being in the roof space, and all linked by a curved staircase.

Historically the building was the town forge, with the forge buildings being located in the grounds, but these have since been demolished and the area being turned into a walled garden.

The building has been restored and this work has uncovered some very interesting historic features - mainly a 16th Century painted wall panel depicting Noah's Ark which has been restored, and two ecclesiastical stone windows within the 16th Century staircase structure that were probably taken from the dissolved Abbey at nearby Kingswood.

The front door to the house opens on to The Rope Walk and this provides a domestic access separate from the two rooms used currently for retail. A side entrance hall leads to an attractive dining room currently used as an extra retail room. Behind this, a kitchen/breakfast room has a large Inglenook fireplace with log burner and an 'L' shaped range of units, and adjacent to this is a utility room. A staircase from the kitchen/breakfast room leads up to a handsome large dining room with beamed ceiling and oak floor and this in turn leads through to a most attractive sitting room with beamed walls and ceiling. Continuing on the first floor and accessed from the main staircase, there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom with a staircase then leading up to the top floor where there is a further bedroom and shower room together with two attractive attic rooms that are currently used as offices.

The property has the benefit of gas fired radiator central heating and modern wiring and plumbing, and a very pleasant south facing walled garden to the rear. The property is offered onto the market with no onward chain and an early appointment to view is highly recommended. 

DIRECTIONS From our office in the centre of town proceed down Long Street. Take the first turning left into New Church Street and leave the town, and through the village of Beverston, continuing straight over at the traffic lights towards Dursley and Wotton Under Edge. Fork left after about 3 1/2 miles and continue on to Wotton Under Edge. On arriving at the 'give way', turn left and immediately right which flows into Long Street and number 42 will be seen on the left. 

AMENITIES Wotton-under-Edge is a charming country town, tucked away under the southern edge of the Cotswolds, equidistant from Gloucester and Bristol, Cheltenham and Bath, only a few miles from the M4 (junction 18) and M5 (junction 14).

The Cotswold Way National Trail passes through the town, along the main shopping streets which are packed with small family run shops selling an amazing range of goods. The town also offers a wide range of services and places to eat.

Wotton-under-Edge is a friendly, thriving and lively place, with interesting and historic buildings. The town still embodies many of the features of small town life which have disappeared in bigger places.
