Full Description

THE PROPERTY This superbly positioned and well-appointed residence, part of the conversion of the town's former Primary School is one of six very comfortable, individual homes within a close and convenient walking distance of the town centre.

The property dates back to early Victorian times and is built of natural stone elevations under a blue slate roof. The front door within the atrium provides under cover access from car to house and opens into a spacious entrance hall with staircase to landing, built-in double cloaks cupboards together with a separate boiler and cupboard and adjacent cloakroom having a white suite. Across the back of the house the well-proportioned lounge has a handsome stone mullion widow to the rear with south facing views and a gas fire in a mock fireplace. Down two steps, the adjacent dining room is conveniently situated for the generous kitchen/breakfast room with a comprehensive range of limed oak units and integrated appliances, and a spacious utility room is adjacent.

At first floor level the very impressive master bedroom has a dramatic stone mullion feature window with amazing views to the rear towards the Cutwell Ford and beyond. Here there is an en-suite bathroom with a white suite including an electric shower over the panelled bath. A guest/second bedroom has an en-suite shower room, bedrooms three and four are of a good size and the family bathroom has a white suite.

The southwest facing garden is quite a sun trap and offers fairly low levels of maintenance thanks to a good size gravelled area and a raised paved patio above the small lawn. The adjacent garage has an up and over door which is operated electronically and a personal door that leads straight into the rear garden. A parking space within a communal gravelled area is immediately in front of the garage. 

DIRECTIONS From our office in the centre of town the property is easily reached on foot by taking the path between the Close Hotel and the Highgrove Gift Shop into Close Gardens and turning left at the entrance to Close Gardens where Old School Court will be seen immediately opposite the green known as The Knapp. Alternatively by car drive down Long Street, take the first turning left into New Church Street, and fork left immediately after Close Gardens and Old School Court will be seen again directly ahead. 

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.
