A contemporary yet traditionally appointed ground floor apartment full of character features in the heart of Tetbury, at the top of the historic Chipping Steps. As well as its own private front door, the property is accompanied by off-street parking, a garage and private cellar space.
Positioned in the heart of Tetbury with beautiful views across the historic roof tops, The Crown is a former Grade II listed Inn which has been sympathetically converted in recent years to create a small collection of just six impressive apartments. Apartment 1 is the largest of the collection and occupies a ground floor position with its own private front door.
The accommodation is spread across both the older and newer parts of the building, it is beautifully presented throughout and has benefitted from the addition of plantation shutters throughout the entire apartment.
The property is entered via a partially glazed front door which leads into the first of the reception rooms. There is an eye-catching original stone fireplace to one end with storage built into its adjacent alcove. The room lends itself to a dining hall but could easily be used for other arrangements. At the front of the building, which is also the original part of The Crown, is the open plan kitchen/living space. There are three tall mullion windows across the front as well as a further fireplace with oak surround. The kitchen area boasts contemporary fitted units and a quartz stone worktop, plus integrated appliances including a fridge freezer, oven, hob with extractor hood and a dishwasher. There is a breakfast peninsula with space for stools around making it a very sociable eating/living space.
Across the dining hall and rising a couple of steps leads to an inner hall where there is a door to the principal shower room and two storage cupboards, one housing the heated water cylinder and the other a large laundry cupboard which has plumbing for a washing machine. The shower room has a white suite and double shower cubicle with contemporary tiling. A further hallway, separated by a door, leads to the bedrooms. There are three in total, the principal suite and a further double and single room, all of which benefit built-in wardrobes. Bedrooms two and three, if desired, could be used as additional reception rooms and all have windows facing the garden area. The principal suite is of very generous proportions and is accompanied by a dressing area and an en-suite bathroom that comprises a shower and a separate bath with a heated towel radiator.
The apartment also owns a large cellar space arranged into two areas, which is of useable head height. This is accessed by a separate door found within the communal entrance hall where there is also a further main door onto Gumstool Hill.
Externally there is a well-maintained communal garden with planted borders and the remainder predominately shingle and a limestone paved pathway to the front doors. There is also a private outside water tap. Apartment One has a private, allocated parking space plus a further parking space within a private single garage which has power, lighting and an electric up-and-over door. The building has a communal bin and bike store.
We understand the apartment is connected to mains services: electricity, water and drainage. Council tax band D (Cotswold District Council). The apartment is leasehold on a 999year lease, but the owners have a share of the freehold. There is a service charge of £53pcm, plus a sinking fund payment of £25pcm.
EPC - Exempt.
