An imposing Grade II Listed townhouse situated in the heart of Tetbury. Offered to the market with no onward chain.
Spencer House, with it’s Georgian frontage, is one of the most notable and handsome houses on Long Street, in the heart of Tetbury’s town centre. The accommodation boasts versatile living space across its five floors and hosts a wealth of impressive character features throughout. These include what is believed to be one of the oldest staircases in Tetbury, authentic floorboards, stone fireplaces, high ceilings and sash windows.
Entering via the impressive front door, the ground floor is centred around a welcoming, encaustic tiled entrance hall which is also home to the beautiful staircase. The first reception room is adjacent to the hallway and is currently arranged as a sitting room, but is also used as an occasional bedroom. It has three sash windows to the front as well as exposed floorboards and a stone fireplace. In the corner of this room is access to the cellar room. This room lends itself to a multitude of uses, such as a home office, gym, cinema room and more. Also accessed from the main hallway is a utility space with a cloakroom and shower room. A side door leads to a storage passageway with a secondary door to Long Street.
Rising to the first-floor landing, access is provided to the rooms that are currently used as the main living space. A beautiful and generously proportioned reception room reaches the width of the house and enjoys four sash windows across the front elevation. This wonderful living room naturally divides into two areas: sitting and dining, and there is a focal fireplace to one end. The kitchen is fitted with ‘Parlour Farm’ bespoke units under a granite worktop. There is an integrated dishwasher, induction hob, oven, and a microwave. Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room with matching bespoke units and granite worktop, and an integrated fridge and freezer, plus space for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
The second-floor hosts two spacious double bedrooms, both of which feature built-in wardrobes, and there is a large bathroom with a walk-in shower and separate bath. Accessed from the second-floor landing is a hatch with a drop-down ladder to an attic room. This could be used as an occasional bedroom or study. A historic door opens onto the roof of the building which is set out as a garden terrace. From here are truly unique and spectacular views across the Gloucestershire countryside, as well as a ‘Mary Poppins’ outlook across the roofs and chimney tops of the town centre.
This beautiful home with its versatile layout and sizeable rooms will appeal to a wide range of occupiers and could, for example, be used by a multi-generational family.
We understand the property is connected to all mains services: gas, electricity, water and drainage. Council tax band F (Cotswold District Council). The property is Grade II Listed.
