Bedrooms: 2
An imaginative conversion of a Grade II listed building to form a beautifully presented 2 bedroom apartment in the heart of the town.


From Stow-on-the-Wold town square, cross over the road passing Huffkins and the Stow Lodge Hotel, the entrance to the property is directly next to Cotswold Galleries.




Stow-on-the-Wold is an attractive market town with the parish church of St Edward together with a wide variety of shops and boutiques. In addition it has a good range of hostelries and a primary school.

Bourton-on-the-Water is 4 miles to the south and has a similar range of facilities including the well respected Cotswold secondary school with its affiliated public Sports centre.

There is also a secondary school at Chipping Campden. There are mainline train stations situated at Moreton-in-Marsh (4 miles) and Kingham (5 miles) with regular services to London Paddington via Oxford and Reading.

Cheltenham, 18 miles, is the principal commercial and cultural centre in the area and has excellent shopping facilities with most of the nationally known High Street retailers represented. It also has a wide number of hostelries, a multiplex cinema, together with the Everyman Theatre as well as a number of annual festivals including the National Hunt, Literature, Music and Cricket festivals.


The Staircase is a first floor apartment forming part of Cotswold Galleries, an elegant Grade II listed building forming part of the historic Square in Stow-on-the-Wold.

The building was converted into three apartments in 2021, the shop remaining as a gallery. As the name suggests a staircase leads to the apartment which was imaginatively conceived with a partly galleried main open plan living room/ kitchen.

There is a master bedroom with en-suite shower room together with a further double bedroom and shower room. The kitchen is vaulted and stairs lead from the main reception area to a galleried study on the second floor which overlooks the kitchen.

The conversion has been executed to a high standard with a security gate leading to all of the apartments. In addition to the vaulted ceiling other features such as exposed beams, lintels and Cotswold stone walls have been retained. In addition the apartment is well appointed with quality appliances and fittings.

A balcony is set in front of the entrance and provides outside space.

The Staircase has been used as a successful holiday property but equally would make a very pleasant holiday home or main residence.
