Located in the delightful rural setting of Pitchcombe stands this beautiful, detached Cotswold stone character property offering plenty of flexible living accommodation along with a good size garden, parking, garage and breathtaking views across the Painswick valley.

Entrance is through the gabled porch into the entrance hall, benefiting from character features, exposed timbers and an 'Arts & Crafts' style oak glazed door. Stairs lead up to the first floor. Leading through the sitting room boasts many character features including a feature fireplace and wood burning stove and the triple aspect windows offer plenty of light and views.

Steps lead up to the kitchen which is of a good size with plenty of room for a table and chairs and a walk-in larder. The kitchen extends through to an additional kitchen area with pine units, Belfast sink and access into the utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and space for tumble dryer and fridge/freezers.

Also on the ground floor there is an additional reception room, currently used as guest suite, which would make an ideal annex or 'granny flat' as it has access to a kitchenette and a shower room.

Leading upstairs to the first floor there are six bedrooms, four of them doubles. The family bathroom is on this floor which benefits from a period roll top bath with shower over. There is also a separate WC.

Leading up to the second floor, the attic room is currently used as an office/studio and comprises a studio room, kitchen and bathroom.

To the outside the property is set in grounds of approximate ¼ of an acre and has two entrances, one through a charming Cotswold stone roofed oak lych-gate and the other from the 'Chapel Steps' through a wrought iron entrance gate to the front.

The remainder of the gardens are attractively laid out on different levels containing a wide variety of established flowers, shrubs, trees and 2 raised vegetable beds.

There are two garages and off road parking for two vehicles.
