The Mill House is a fine example of eighteenth century Cotswold architecture being constructed of ashlar limestone with a central porch flanked by wide mullioned windows topped by scalloped crenellations on the ground floor and Gothic pointed arch windows with label courses on the first floor. Internally, the charm continues with flagstone, terracotta and polished wood floors, exposed beams, stone fireplaces, panelled walls and an elegant staircase with slender handrails and balustrades.
Hidden away in a secluded backwater of the village, this is the quintessential Cotswold residence offering a rural lifestyle whilst still being in the heart of the community. The hub of the house is the spacious flagstoned hallway that has a Clearview stove with stone surround from which doors lead to the dining room, kitchen/breakfast room and the conservatory. The kitchen/breakfast room has a gorgeous cream two-oven AGA and ample room for a breakfast table and chairs whilst the dining room has an open fireplace with double doors leading back into the kitchen. The spacious drawing room is particularly appealing with an imposing stone fireplace housing a multi fuel stove and four windows flooding the room with light and offering enticing views into the gardens and pastures beyond. There are five bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en suite) over the upper two storeys. A utility room, cloakroom and cellar complete the accommodation.
Sheepscombe is a delightful Cotswold village approximately two miles East of Painswick and nestled in an enchanting valley which is sheltered by mature broad leaved woodlands. The village boasts a fine public house in The Butchers Arms that has an excellent reputation for its food and ambiance whilst the primary school, church, village hall and cricket club all provide a hub for many groups, events and activities. The surrounding towns provide a comprehensive range of social, recreational and retail amenities to suit all tastes including the award-winning Farmers Market in Stroud. Cheltenham is the main regional centre and offers festivals throughout the year embracing topics ranging from racing to literature and music to science.
Nearby Painswick, the “Queen of the Cotswolds”, is a thriving community with recreational opportunities including tennis, rugby and bowls clubs with many other groups meeting at the Painswick Centre. The village has a general store, tea shops, restaurants, public houses, a hotel and weekly country markets in the Town Hall in addition to a dentists, doctors and pharmacy.
