Full descriptionListed Grade II *, Standish possesses an array of architectural delights such as stone mullion windows, original stone staircase and an imposing large open fire place at the heart of this fine medieval building. The current owner has lovingly restored - and in places enhanced - its natural feel with a blend of colour and fabulous contemporary art. Off the impressive hallway you find the utility/cloakroom, the large sitting room, and a fully equipped kitchen leading to the dining-room/conservatory extension which acts as a frame for the rear garden. Upstairs you find a room-sized landing, three double bedrooms, two modern bathrooms and - a romantic and inspirational feature - a spacious balcony with seating to enjoy the glorious views. A local caretaker oversees maintenance. This exceptional home is ideal for holidays, retreats or weekends.
Standish lies between Stroud and Gloucester and is surrounded by the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a 2.5hr drive from Central London, 2.2hrs from Heathrow. Bath, Tewkesbury, Cirencester, Cheltenham and Stratford-on-Avon - as well as country houses, castles and gardens open to the public - are all within 30-60 minutes drive. Direct trains to London take 90 minutes.
The walled garden - with lawn, mature shrubs and a mulberry tree - has three furnished seating areas and a door to St Nicholas's notable churchyard. The whole property and its neighbours benefit from the security and privacy of an enclosing wall with a stone archway as its only entrance.
