A lovingly presented period home with enormous character, in A ''wind in the willows'' setting in the painswick valley with A romantic waterside garden

Reception Hall, Living Room, Sitting Room, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Utility, Ground Floor Cloakroom, Master Bedroom with Walk-In Wardrobe and Bathroom En-Suite, and 3 Further Bedrooms each with En-Suite Shower Rooms, Double Garage, Private Driveway, Pool House with Heated Pool and Shower Room, Outbuildings, Extensive Garden and Grounds - About an Acre.


Brookhouse Mill Cottage, dating from 1760, has the character to match its exceptional setting. From the moment you enter this charming old house, the eye is taken by the massive beams, the old fireplaces, the exposed stone work and much else besides, as well as the cheerful way it is presented. The overhung front door opens into a reception hall (dining room) with the sitting room and the kitchen/breakfast room on either side. The latter, very conveniently, has a door to the driveway and a utility area and a cloakroom off. A family room occupies the central part of the first floor with well appointed en-suite bedrooms on either side (bathroom and shower room), respectfully. Stairs continue to the top floor where there are two further en-suite bedrooms, (shower rooms). The separate pool house is in the garden. It has an integral shower room and a pump room/garden machinery store at its rear. The extensive grounds extend down both banks of the Painswick stream with bridges connecting the two sides and a spectacular waterfall at the far end. Kept largely informal, the areas around the house have however been carefully landscaped. There a double garage and the driveway has space for several cars. The property is within an official area of outstanding natural beauty.


The property is most easily found by leaving our office in Painswick in the Stroud direction on the A46. Turn left after a short distance, immediately after the car park, into Stamages Lane. Continue down the hill and turn left at the little crossroads into Kingsmill Lane. Continue to the end of Kingsmill Lane and turn right at the end. Brookhouse Mill Cottage is then on the left, backing onto the lane and immediately before the bridge over the stream.


Brookhouse Mill Cottage is in Painswick, one of the prettiest villages in the Cotswolds, renown for its wealth of old buildings. The property has an idyllic setting on the edge of the village at the foot of the valley that flanks it, above the Painswick Stream. Painswick has a good range of local services and is an inclusive community with much going on, for all age groups. Crucially it is very accessible to Cheltenham for schools, shopping and its different Festivals (Literature, Science Jazz and Music), as well as its National Hunt race course. Nearby Stroud has four major supermarkets as well as its award winning Farmers Market and trains from its main line station into London Paddington, are scheduled from just over 90 minutes. By road the capital is normally under 2 hours and there is also good access from here to the M5 motorway, for Bristol or the West Midlands. The real joy of this location however is the ability to escape into the adjacent countryside which has a timeless quality. A patchwork of small green fields with thick hedgerows, interspersed by sunken lanes and flanked by acres of native woodland, a riot of colour as the seasons change. There are therefore lovely walks, country pubs to enjoy and Painswick has a challenging 18 hole golf course.
