Property Description

Full description

THE PROPERTY Spencer House Cottage is a substantial, attractive Grade II Listed Period town house principally constructed of Cotswold stone under lime render elevations under a natural stone tiled roof. Sympathetically renovated to an extremely high standard in 2008, many of the original features remain including oak panelling, high ceilings and exposed timbers.

Spencer house Cottage consists briefly of an excellent spacious kitchen/dining room with a bespoke range of units and a handsome fireplace, and there is a useful utility room. At first floor level there are two double bedrooms (one en-suite) and a study, together with a family bathroom whilst on the second floor the generously proportioned master bedroom (circa 325 sq ft) has an en-suite bathroom with an adjacent guest bedroom suite.

The property is available with no onward chain, has gas fired radiator central heating, and dedicated parking for two cars. Discreetly set back from the hustle and bustle of Long Street, vehicular access is gained through Close Gardens to the rear.

DIRECTIONS From our office in the centre of town the property is easily reached on foot by walking down the passageway to the right hand side of the Close Hotel and past the Library into Close Gardens and taking the first turning right where Spencer House Cottage will be seen directly ahead. Alternatively, by car, turn off Long Street into New Church Street signposted to Dursley, take the first turning to the left at the Fire Station into Close Gardens and first left again to see the house directly ahead.

AMENITIES Tetbury, often referred to as the entrance to the Cotswolds, and once voted by Country Life magazine as the third most desirable town in the country, is a thriving historic Cotswold market town situated less than half an hour from both the M4 and M5 motorways and within easy reach of Cirencester, Cheltenham, Bath, Bristol and Swindon. There is good access to Kemble Railway Station with regular Intercity services to London and other regional commercial centres.

Tetbury is well known for its royal houses with HRH The Prince of Wales at Highgrove House, and Gatcombe Park the home of The Princess Royal both close by. Tetbury boasts an exciting range of shops including specialist boutiques, city standard delicatessens, the Highgrove Shop and many fine antique shops. The town has an excellent variety of hotels, restaurants, cafes and brasseries offering a mouth watering range of cuisine.

A visit to the Tourist Information Office will provide you with a map of the area showing some of our local attractions including the world famous Westonbirt Arboretum, or the nearby Cotswold Water Park or perhaps the Abbey and Abbey House Gardens in Malmesbury.
