Opportunities to live in a period house, right in the centre of the historic town of Tetbury are very few and far between. This stunning Grade I listed building has been restored and modernised to provide a stunning home with a business attached.

Painstakingly restored, with attention very much on the detail by the current owners, the character of this Elizabethan house has been allowed to shine through whilst respecting the historical value the house provides. Distinctive and individual, there are an abundance of character features with exposed beams and floorboards, carved stone fireplaces and mullion windows to name a few.
The porch was added later in approximately 1688 and this provides the main entrance into the property with its flagstone floor.

Currently downstairs is being used for retail selling 18th Century furniture, the cavernous room suits this purpose but could be used as a large sitting room or an additional bedroom, steps lead down to a utility/laundry room and downstairs cloakroom with access into the courtyard. The front room is used as an office with mullioned windows overlooking the street and a beautiful fireplace.

Curved stairs lead to the first floor where a bedroom with a box bay window and en-suite shower room can be found. The library, to the rear, overlooks the courtyard and steps lead up into the beautiful awe inspiring vaulted kitchen-dining-family room, the tall feature windows flood the room with light making the preparation of meals in the well equipped kitchen a pleasure. The dining table is adjacent to the kitchen but could easily allow a banquet to take place along the length of the room. The family area enjoys the carved feature fireplace complete with a wood burning stove, perfect for keeping the chillier nights away. Steps lead down to the laundry/utility room and out into the picturesque courtyard.

On the second floor is a huge master suite with painted beams and an en-suite shower room almost large enough to hold a party in, creating a haven for the end of the day.

The courtyard at the rear of the house is south west facing with wonderful York stone, mature flower beds, and outbuildings including two workshops and an open store, this lovely space is a sanctuary from the bustle of the town and affords beautiful views of Porch House's majesty.

40 Long Street has a rateable value of £14,000 per annum. 

AMENITIES Tetbury, often referred to as the gateway 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, two supermarkets and many fine antique shops. The town has an excellent variety of hotels, restaurants, cafes and brasseries offering a mouth-watering range of cuisine.

There is an excellent range of schools in the area including Westonbirt Preparatory and Senior Schools (3 - 18 years). There is also Beaudesert Park at Minchinhampton together with popular state primary and secondary schools in and around Tetbury.

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.
