Hillview offers a charming hillside cottage in the heart of the sought after village of Amberley. Immaculately presented, the cottage dates back to the 1800s and has a welcoming and cosy vibe from the moment you raise the latch on the lane side gate. A tiled reception hall offers a low maintenance and stylish entrance, with cloakroom off and kitchen opposite. Fitted with shaker style units in a soft green hue, the kitchen is a light filled room with ample units to maximise storage.
The sitting room leads off the central hall via a period glass panelled door and is a delightful room filled with character features. A central fireplace with wood burning stove and a lovely old bread oven fitted with a feature light give this room a wonderful sense of warmth. An equally charming study/snug leads off the sitting room, a peaceful tucked away room, ideal as a reading room.
Further along the hall is a wonderful garden room, opening out to a rear terrace, the perfect spot for a morning coffee. This light filled room has motorised ceiling blinds and a tiled floor plus a utility room leading off the far end. The dining room leads off the garden room and is also accessed via the hallway, giving this section of the house a wonderful sense of flow and making it an ideal entertaining space.
Stairs lead off the entrance hall to a half landing with access door to the garden. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a bathroom with bath and separate shower. There is also a separate WC. Two of the bedrooms face lane side and the rear bedroom has magnificent views across the valley. All three bedrooms have ample built-in storage.
On stepping outside, the real jewel in the Hillview crown is immediately evident. The cottage garden is approached via steps and immaculately presented with an array of stunning borders, perfectly pruned topiary and a stunning yew tree arch. The garden exudes English romance, with several sitting out areas, perfectly placed for an evening drink whilst soaking up the last of the sun. Stylish wrought iron fencing edges the garden, handmade by a local craftsman. The cottage also benefits from a single garage with Cotswold dry stone walling surround. The roof space of the garage is cleverly sectioned off to create a good sized storage area, accessed from the top of the garden.
Amberley is a quintessential Cotswold village in an enviable location on the fringe of Minchinhampton Common. With a sought after village school and two popular pubs, both within easy walking distance of Hillview, the village has a tremendous sense of community spirit. The surrounding Minchinhampton Common offers over 650 acres of National Trust land, ideal for dog walking and host to one of three challenging golf courses in the vicinity. In an elevated position, the village affords tremendous views across the Stroud valleys.
One of the key draws to the area is the excellent choice of schools. Amberley itself has a sought after primary school and there are several excellent grammar schools in Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham.
London is within 2 hours by car or circa 90 minutes by train from nearby Stroud, which also has a large Waitrose plus other supermarkets. Closer still, are Minchinhampton and Nailsworth, both small market towns with a good range of independent retailers.
From our Minchinhampton Office, proceed along West End into Windmill road and at the staggered junction on the Common continue over towards Amberley with the reservoir on your right. Drop down the hill and take the first right after the Amberley Inn back up the hill into the village. Pass the chapel on your left and continue to the top of the hill where Hillview will be found on the right just prior to the grass triangle and the Black Horse pub.
