This charming Grade II Listed home is double-fronted and dates from the late 17th/early 18th century. It is thought to have originally been a bottling plant to the adjacent brewery. The current owners purchased in 2014 and set about a painstaking renovation and refurbishment of the property, with meticulous attention to detail. There are period features throughout and, at the rear, an annexe building currently used as a workshop and hobbies room plus a summer bedroom to take full advantage of the lovely gardens. It could easily provide ancillary accommodation if required. In the same ownership and adjacent to the far end of the garden, albeit the entrance is some 250 yards away in St John Street, there is an area of wildlife garden, plus an insulated workshop and storage building together with secure off-road parking. It is bordered by the Tetbury branch of the river Avon. This is available separately for the sum of £50,000 if required.
The half-glazed front door leads into a flagged hall. On the right is a large study with oak flooring and a cupboard housing the gas meter. On the left is the sitting room with a wide Inglenook fireplace fitted with a log burning stove, oak flooring, and a cupboard housing the electricity meter and consumer unit. At the rear is a large kitchen/dining room with a high sloping ceiling of oak rafters and larch panelling. There are a range of units including an electric oven and gas hob. A wide window overlooks the rear courtyard, and an opening leads off to the adjacent laundry room which, like the kitchen, has a stone floor with wet underfloor heating. There is a sink unit, a Worcester Bosch gas combination boiler, larch panelling, built-in storage for coats and boots plus a ladder leading to a mezzanine level providing further storage. A wide doorway and steps lead to the annexe which has a workshop with mezzanine storage, a garden room (used as a summer bedroom), a shower room and a hobbies room. A door and oak stairs from the sitting room lead to the first floor landing where there is an oak-framed metal casement window looking down over the kitchen. There are two first floor double bedrooms with oak flooring plus a family bathroom. Oak stairs continue to the top floor where there is a large attic room with a vaulted ceiling and exposed trusses, two roof lights and a storage area off with toilet and basin.
The wonderful gardens are split into several compartments with a courtyard area adjacent to the house with paving, oak sleepers, a log store and a raised well. There are vegetable beds, a lawn with borders. fruit trees, and a patio adjoining the current workshop. An archway through a yew hedge leads to further soft-fruit beds and grapevine, while adjacent are composting areas. At the end of the garden is a paved and gravelled area with seating to take full advantage of the view over the adjoining countryside.
NB: The property also benefits from a restricted right of access through the adjoining property, 2A Silver Street, into the garden at the rear. The restriction requires that access be permitted between the hours of 9 - 5 on weekdays only.
All mains connected. Central heating, underfloor heating and hot water is provided by a gas boiler in the laundry room. Council Tax band D - £2,289.65 payable for 2023/24. There is no EPC as the property is listed.
