This deceptively spacious Georgian town house, conveniently placed a short stroll from the town centre, has many hidden surprises.
Approached into an extended side entrance hall leading straight through into the rear garden, useful for storing coats and shoes, and wiping down muddy dogs. The handsome sitting room has an oak floor, an intriguing natural stone feature fireplace, exposed ceiling beam and triple glazed sash windows which look out onto the front. The attractive kitchen is very much the heart of the home, with wooden flooring, a range of pale grey bespoke shaker style units comprising base cupboards and drawers with matching dark grey surfaces with a double oven, five ring gas hob with matching hood above and a breakfast bar, arranged around a Cotswold stone chimney breast. The kitchen has been extended to provide a dining area with oak stanchions, limestone flooring and full length double glazed panels with French doors into the garden. Leading off the kitchen is a useful utility room with tall storage cupboards, planned space for a washing machine and tumble dryer and off this is a downstairs cloakroom.
At first floor level there are three double bedrooms, a study/fifth bedroom and an attractive spacious family bathroom with roll top bath and separate walk in shower. On the second floor is the master bedroom – a particularly spacious room with built in wardrobe and a smart en-suite bathroom with overhead shower.
The garden will be a breath-taking surprise, beautifully landscaped to provide “rooms” which draw you further towards the far reaching views. Bordered by Cotswold stone walls there is a patio close to the house, a landscaped path with clipped box trees, leading to a lawn area with a number of fruit trees, a pond with a fountain plus a very useful office/studio with power and lighting at the bottom of the garden with a shed beyond.<br /><br />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.
Tetbury is very fortunate to have excellent schools with St Mary’s Primary and Sir William Romney Secondary being within a short walk of the town centre. There are other acclaimed schools in the local area including Leighterton Primary School and Malmesbury Secondary School. Close by are good private schools which include Westonbirt Preparatory and Senior Schools and also Beaudesert Park at Minchinhampton.
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.
