A rare opportunity to secure a small equestrian estate in the heart of the Cotswolds. The property occupies an elevated position with delightful views and a high degree of privacy whilst still being within easy access of A-roads and the motorway network.
In all, the plot size is approximately 12.8 acres divided into three main pastures as well as gardens for the house and smaller paddocks. Having been previously used as a stud farm, the property is offered with numerous outbuildings that have the benefit of a separate access from the lane. Outbuildings include an American barn, stabling, foaling stables, field shelters, hay stores and a machinery barn however, as the estate has not been actively managed for some years now, they may need varying amounts of maintenance to be returned to an operative condition.
The dwelling house, that is now in need of significant renovation or redevelopment, is comprised of two living rooms, a kitchen with pantry cupboard and cloakroom on the ground floor with three bedrooms, a study and bathroom on the first floor. A timber double garage and parking are situated to the rear of the house.
Painswick, the "Queen of the Cotswolds", is a thriving community nestling in a delightful Cotswolds setting. Constructed of mellow locally quarried stone, the town has many beautiful buildings dating back as far as the 14th Century. Painswick Churchyard is famous for its impressive array of table tombs and its 99 yew trees about which folklore holds that if a 100th should grow the devil will pull it out.
There are primary schools in Painswick, Sheepscombe and Cranham whilst education options in the wider area are particularly strong in both the private and state sectors with independent schools including Kings School, Wycliffe College, Cheltenham College, Cheltenham Ladies College and Dean Close whilst there are Grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham. There are several local shops, galleries, tearooms and restaurants in Painswick along with a pharmacy, doctors' surgery and dentists whilst the surrounding towns provide a good range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes and budgets. Recreational opportunities in the village include tennis, rugby and bowls clubs with many other groups including badminton, table tennis and pilates meeting at the Painswick Centre. In the wider area, events include polo at Edgeworth and Cirencester Park, racing at Prestbury Park, eventing at Gatcombe and sailing at the Cotswold Water Park, together with shooting and fishing on local estates and golf at Gloucester and Painswick Golf Clubs.
