An elegant and beautifully renovated Grade II listed Georgian townhouse occupying a prominent position in the heart of Painswick.
The Lamp House is situated in the heart of the delightful Cotswold village of Painswick which is known as 'The Queen of the Cotswolds', in an area renowned as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The 15th Century Church with its steeple, table tombs and clipped yew hedges dominates this small Cotswold settlement with its ancient streets of stone cottages and houses. There are shops, pubs and hotels for everyday requirements but for more comprehensive shopping, commercial and recreational amenities Cheltenham, Gloucester and Stroud are all within easy motoring distance.
Cheltenham is particularly well endowed with public schools being home to Cheltenham College (co-ed), Cheltenham Ladies' College, Dean Close and St. Edwards: Beaudesert Park at Minchinhampton about six miles away has a co-ed prep and pre-prep school with an enviable reputation. There are also highly regarded grammar schools in in Cheltenham, Gloucester and Stroud. Intercity trains from Stroud reach Paddington in as little as an hour and thirty five minutes and the M5 about five miles to the west of Stroud gives good access to the West Country and the Midlands: about six miles from the house the A417 dual carriageway leading to the M4 motorway, brings London within two hours.
The Lamp House was named after the Jubilee lamp, commemorating Queen Victoria's 60th anniversary, which, in 1904, was erected in Victoria Square, but which now stands on the edge of the Memorial Garden in New Street adjacent to the churchyard. The property is believed to date back to the late 1700's and has previously served as a hotel but is now a delightful house with generous, well-proportioned rooms and an abundance of natural light. Having been comprehensively renovated by the current owner, the house retains a wealth of period features such as exposed beams, cornicing and flagstone flooring which gives the house a traditional feel whilst blending seamlessly with the more contemporary areas, such as the kitchen and drawing room.
The property, constructed of Painswick stone, is slightly set back from the road with a small pathway leading to the front door which opens into a light hall with dining room off to the left. There is a large open fireplace, beautiful cornicing, and dark wooden flooring. There is also a large bay window which allows plenty of natural light to flood in. The study, again with bay window, is immediately off to the right with pretty views of the church. The kitchen, which is most certainly the heart of the house, has a stone fireplace, wooden floors, handmade Christian style painted units and is fully-equipped with a range of integrated Miele appliances, gas-fired Aga and dark granite surfaces. The sitting room, which is immediately off the kitchen, has an antique stone floor, gas fireplace, a door in to the side garden and French doors that open out onto the terrace and garden. On the lower ground floor is the utility room and also the party room and wine cellar which has stone flooring, an island unit and granite work surfaces.
Upstairs on the mezzanine floor there is a suite of two bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a sitting room and there is also a bathroom. On the first floor is the drawing room with under floor heating and stone fireplace. This room has delightful views of the church and there is also a cloakroom on this floor. On the second floor is a further bedroom, a shower room and the master suite with dressing room and bathroom.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a terraced area perfect for entertaining and is relatively low maintenance.
Square Footage: 2,820 sq ft
From Stroud proceed north on the A46 towards Cheltenham and Painswick. On entering Painswick with the church on the right hand side, turn right and park immediately on the right. The Lamp House will be directly behind you on the left hand side.
