The Property

Occupying an elevated setting, with dramatic and far-reaching views across the Cotswold landscape lies this detached period home. The cottage enjoys a much-coveted position, located at the end of a no through lane below Minchinhampton Common and acres of land vested in the National Trust. Constructed in Cotswold stone the property is rich in character throughout, with features including, exposed beams and lintels, a pretty Cotswold stone fireplace and stone mullion windows. Having been the subject of a more recent extension, the cottage now provides well-proportioned family accommodation measuring 1772 sq ft. The main door opens to a reception hall with exposed floorboards. Doors open to a useful utility, downstairs cloakroom and the sitting room, steps down provide access to the kitchen/Dining Room. The kitchen is a most impressive room, built in keeping with the cottage, with exposed beams and wooden floors and a particularly high ceiling. Wall and base units provide plentiful storage, as does a bespoke island with granite worktop, there is room for dining. A woodburning stove further adds to the rooms appeal. Views across the surrounding roof tops to open countryside can be enjoyed from the kitchen, French doors open to the garden. The sitting room is unusually large for a cottage, measuring 27’1 ft. Windows look to both the front and rear elevation, whilst handmade cupboards to one end offer great storage, an exposed Cotswold stone fireplace with woodburning stove creates a warming focal point. An adjoining study is located to the far end. A modern staircase rises to the first floor where a split-level landing provides access to all bedrooms. The main bedroom sits above the kitchen and affords a most wonderful, elevated outlook, built in wardrobes offer great storage and the room is served by ensuite shower room. The property provides a further three bedrooms, these are served by a family bathroom with separate shower cubicle and cast-iron radiator


Gardens extend to the front and side of the cottage and provide an open aspect, views can be appreciated throughout but become further reaching at the top of the garden, where a well-placed Summer House provides the perfect vantage point to sit back and take in the open vista. A gravelled parking area offers parking for two cars and is served by a charging point for electric cars. Gated steps lead up to the garden and cottage. A small lawned area bounded by hedging lies to the side of the driveway, beyond which extends a patio providing opportunity for outside dining. An exceedingly useful Cotswold stone outbuilding offers outside storage but with some work could be turned into a home office, subject to any relevant consents. The main gardens include an expanse of lawn, steps meander up through the lawn leading to a selection of fruit trees. A gated archway known by the owners as ‘the fairy gate’ opens immediately onto a footpath that meanders onto the common.
