    The Grey House is an important period town house situated in a superb position in the Market Square and having excellent residential accommodation combined with commercial/retail potential as required. The property, which is a beautifully presented Grade II Listed property dating from the late 18th century or early 19th century, has a handsome Ashlar façade beneath a Cotswold stone roof and offers charming and characterful accommodation set out over three floors.

    The handsome front door opens into a very generous retail area/sitting room with an open fireplace with a substantial Bressummer beam over and built in cupboard and shelving to either side. French doors lead to a charming conservatory. Adjoining the retail area is another showroom/dining room with a window to the front. An inner hall provides access to the well-proportioned drawing room at the rear of the property. Three window openings allow light to flood into the room which benefits from a handsome fireplace. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a utility room.

    On the first floor is a generous inner hallway together with three bedrooms which share two well-appointed bathrooms. The kitchen with Cotswold stone fireplace is also situated on this floor but could readily be re-situated to the ground floor. There are three further bedrooms on the second floor and a bathroom. The property benefits from a substantial cellar which is ideal for a variety of uses.

    To the rear is an enclosed courtyard garden which is an idyllic oasis away from the ebb and flow of the Market Square. The garden is paved with raised beds and a large square fountain. The current owners have filled the garden with plants but it can also be low maintenance if required. Beyond the garden is the garage and parking for a further three cars.

    Adjoining The Grey House is Painswick House which provides self-contained accommodation over three floors comprising a retail area to the ground floor, sitting room, kitchen and shower room on the first floor and a bedroom on the second floor. Painswick House is available by separate negotiation with a guide of £400,000.
