Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
A superb period house, built of Cotswold stone, occupying an enviable setting in the 'quintessentially English' market town of Minchinhampton close to its comprehensive range of facilities, yet located within walking distance of picturesque Minchinhampton Common and acres of National Trust land. Having undergone an extensive programme of extension and renovation, great thought has gone into its design, thus now providing a home of high quality that successfully fuses the old and the new. This incorporates a rain water harvesting system and a thermal store using gas and solid fuel.

The property provides generous family accommodation measuring 2661 sq feet. Period features are in abundance throughout and include sash windows, exposed Cotswold stone walls and beams and inglenook fireplaces. The property is warmed by under floor heating throughout the ground and lower ground floor with a mix of stone and oak flooring. A bespoke fitted kitchen with a free-standing Rangemaster cooker and granite worktops opens to the garden room/ dining room which provides an impressive space for entertaining or everyday family life. French doors open directly to the garden from here and you can also access the garage. This is further complimented by three additional reception rooms including the breath-taking sitting room with an inglenook fireplace and hand-built oak shelving as well as a snug with a wood-burning stove and converted cellar, providing a home office or entertainment room.

From the ground floor an impressive wooden staircase, set within a turret leads to the first and second floors and floods the landings with light. Two of the three first floor bedrooms enjoy en suite shower facilities with stylish fittings along with a further bedroom which is serviced by the family bathroom with underfloor heating. To the second floor you will find a remarkable master suite with a vaulted ceiling, a freestanding roll-top bath and a separate WC.

Situation

The property sits centrally within the popular former market town of Minchinhampton, which is famed for its unspoilt beauty and offers a pleasant village environment with excellent facilities including a post office, general stores, hair dressers, butchers, restaurants and further amenities. The communication links are also excellent as it is situated just over 10 miles from Cirencester, 10.2 miles from Kemble train station (90 minute to London Paddington) and 6 miles from the well regarded town of Tetbury. The Cotswolds are famed for both their natural beauty and outdoor pursuits and there are a number of excellent walks, bridle paths and sporting activities that can be found in the surrounding areas. Schooling is also a major draw to this area with the well regarded Minchinhampton Primary School and the independent schools such as Beaudesert Park, Wycliffe and Westonbirt School being popular choices for local families.

Outside

The rear garden has been thoughtfully landscaped to include a spacious stone patio ideal for alfresco dining as it continues out from the dining room through French doors. A pathway leads from here up to the majority of the garden which is laid to level lawn and offers a beautiful view of Minchinhampton Church. Several borders contain a variety of flowers and shrubs with some mature trees, all enclosed by Cotswold stone walling. The front of the property, which looks out on the historic Market House, also offers access into the garage.
