Welcome to The Old Police Station House, a substantial and impressive plus individual and unique Grade II listed red brick family home that is believed to date back to 1816.History advises that the property replaced the Abbey Belfry as Tewkesbury's correction and goal. In 1854 the building was remodelled as a police station and then in 1902, the building was extended and much later converted into a dwelling sometime in the 1970's.

Arranged over three floors, the property has an extraordinary pitched roof, commanding chimney stacks, Cotswold stone window surrounds and original ironmongery and studwork, most notably found on the substantial timber front door. Once inside the property continues to impress, with an original Minton tiled floor to the entrance hall, block wood flooring, a stone cantilever staircase with wrought iron railings and fan vaulted ceilings

Key rooms have been beautifully converted whilst retaining some of the original flavour of the property's former usage including the snug, dining room and sitting room. Worthy of note is that the study and cloakroom feature the original cell doors and windows.

On the ground floor the accommodation comprises of the following; Entrance Hall, Snug with semi-circular bay window, Dining Room, Sitting Room, Study, Utility Room and finally a modern fitted kitchen complete with an array of fitted units, including a stainless-steel range cooker.

Moving upstairs the first-floor houses three of the six bedrooms. The most notable of the rooms is the master suite which has not only a walk-in wardrobe but also a dressing room and the most fabulous four-piece en suite bathroom. To complete this floor there are two further double bedrooms and an eye catching family bathroom

The second floor which was recently converted in 2012 provides three more bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room

Outside, the Old Police Station House has an impressive roadside frontage with a substantial brick wall and wrought iron entrance gate whilst to the rear is an enclosed garden that offers a lawned area, pond and paved seating area.
