    About this property

    • The Counting House is an impressive Grade II Listed building which was converted in 2008 into nine elegant apartments by Edward Blake Ltd, a local development company with an excellent reputation. The apartment is situated above King Charles' Highgrove Shop in the heart of this delightful market town.
      This exceptionally attractive accommodation comprises a communal entrance hall, with a wide Georgian staircase, as well as a residents' lift to the second-floor landing.
      The apartment itself is split over two floors, entering on the first level, you are greeted with a light and airy entrance hall with beautiful Seagrass carpet, that then continues for much of the apartment. A modern, recently refurbished kitchen with a number of integrated appliances, including a five-ring induction range cooker by Smeg, a very clear combination of work tops including Granite and copper & and an under counter Smeg bar fridge. The kitchen although modern in style still retains a lot of the traditional features of the building, including large sash windows and lovely high ceilings. Back across the hall is the living room with Seagrass carpet, traditional sash windows and beautiful wall panelling.
      The staircase leads up to the two attractive bedrooms both with en-suite shower & bathrooms with built in wardrobes, the shower room in particular being completely tiled in honed marble with underfloor heating. The third bedroom, currently being used as a study, completes this second floor. From this second floor position there are some truly wonderful views across Tetbury.
      A good sized landscaped communal garden is found to the rear with a garden room for the use of all residents, including a summer house and covered bicycle storage. There is rear access through a locked pedestrian gate leading directly to Tetbury library. There are ample free parking places around the library and market square centre of Tetbury.
      This stylish property provides a secure base for those who may also have interests away from Tetbury.

    I love the mix of Penthouse town living but in the beautiful Cotswold location of Tetbury.

    Local information

    • Tetbury is a popular and lively traditional Cotswold market town, well known for its 17th and 18th Century architecture. Historically, the town was known for its wool market and more recently antique shops but today boutique, hotels, and specialist shops, together with cafes, restaurants and bistros have come to the fore. As a result there is a bustling feel to the town with well-known shops now including the Highgrove shop, Quayles restaurant, Moloh, Lola and Co Tapas Bar and the award winning Hobbs bakery. For more general shopping there is a Tesco superstore on the edge of the town and, twice a week, there is an open market under The Market House. Waitrose supermarket can also be found in nearby Malmesbury.
    • Tetbury, once voted the third best town in which to live by Country Life Magazine, also supports a splendid parish church which has been described as having one of the best Georgian gothic designs; it has the fourth highest church spire in England. Each autumn too there is annual music festival in the church attended by international musicians.
    • Nearby is the world-famous National Arboretum which covers 600 acres and boasts one of the most varied specimen collections in Europe, as well as some 17 miles of trails. Other recreational opportunities include golf at Westonbirt and Minchinhampton, sailing at the Cotswold Water Park, motor racing at the Castle Combe circuit and horse eventing at Badminton and Gatcombe. There are also gymnasia in Tetbury and Malmesbury, as well as at the Cotswold Leisure Centre in Cirencester.
    • Tetbury is particularly well placed for the commuter with Kemble station and the M4 and M5 motorways all being within easy access. Nearby, larger commercial centres include Bath, Bristol and Cheltenham, all of which provide excellent shopping and cultural opportunities.
