In the heart of the town, this extremely versatile and well appointed period town house with a retail space below. Parking and garden

Oxford House is a handsome natural stone period town house enjoying a number of unique features and particularly versatile accommodation, set in a wonderful location in the heart of the historic town centre and offering the combination of commercial retail space beneath.

At the rear of the house, which provides the best access, is a private enclosed parking space with a secure door into the walled courtyard garden.

At ground floor level, three rooms make up a flexible area which could be an office suite if working from home, or two bedrooms; alternatively a self-contained studio for letting purposes subject to any necessary planning considerations.

Solid granite steps lead up from the courtyard to the main part of the living accommodation beginning with a large vaulted family room with four roof lights and a hand painted classic tumbling blocks design floor. There is a log burner style gas fire and under floor heating. This leads into the spacious kitchen/dining room with a range of beech units and integrated appliances.

Steps lead down into a dining room which has access onto a sunny, stone flagged roof terrace. From here a door opens onto a landing with a conical staircase down to an entrance hall directly onto Long Street.

The sitting room is at the front of the building with two secondary double glazed sash windows and a corner feature fireplace. This room could be repurposed as the principal bedroom with a bathroom adjacent.

On the second floor there are two double bedrooms at the front of the building, a potential dressing room towards the rear off which is a shower room and a third bedroom.

The accommodation has a self-contained shop (400 square feet) with a double fronted window display, and the potential to expand this into the workshops behind. This could create more show room space, provide flexibility to offer office or storage space, self-contained within the building.

The property is beautifully situated in the heart of Tetbury, and benefits from not being listed, the shop is currently tenanted and the house is used as an Airbnb.
