Amberley Cottage offers the rare opportunity to purchase a substantial and sympathetically restored home in a truly exceptional location. The stature of the property and the deep history that lies within its walls is immediately apparent. With parts of the house dating back to 1600, the home is steeped in historic features. A glorious morning room leads off the main reception hall, setting the tone for the character that runs throughout the entire property. A charming room with a focal stone fireplace with wood burning stove inset, the morning room also benefits from deep window seats and beautifully restored mullion windows. A sun room leads off, providing access to the garden, a divine spot for an evening drink whilst soaking up the far-reaching panorama. Two further reception rooms lead off an inner hall, the drawing room with stunning large feature windows overlooking the valley and the dining room offering a cosy space with further feature fireplace. The kitchen offers a bright and spacious room with cream units and ample space for a table. A good sized laundry room leads off the rear of the kitchen. There are also two cloakrooms. The kitchen opens out to a delightful secluded patio area, perfect for alfresco dining. A splendid oak staircase believed to be an addition from the Arts and Crafts era, leads to the four first floor bedrooms and three bathrooms, together with a home office. A rear staircase provides alternative access to the first floor, allowing for this level of the house to be sectioned off if required (the front section of the house is currently utilised for bed and breakfast). The principal bedroom suite is an impressive room with dramatically large proportions and en-suite shower room. All of the bedrooms afford wonderful valley views. A further bedroom is located on the second floor with en-suite shower room, together with a useful attic storage space. A separate guest suite is located a short distance from the house, with en-suite shower room and large workshop below; this area could easily be converted to a self-contained annexe (subject to any consent needed).
The grounds of Amberley Cottage are largely to the front and side of the house and a real feature of the property. Sitting tall and proud, Amberley Cottage sits adjacent to Minchinhampton Common and its garden affords the full panorma of valley views, from Nailsworth to May Hill and beyond. There is a large gravel parking area below the garden.
Amberley is a quintessential Cotswold village in an enviable location on the fringe of Minchinhampton Common. Amberley Cottage itself sits in a prime location on the fringe of the village, overlooking the common and with truly exceptional views. With a sought-after village school and two popular pubs, both within easy walking distance of Amberley Cottage, 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 stunning 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. Beaudesert Park School is within easy walking distance of Amberley Cottage. 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.
Amberley Cottage is most easily found by leaving our Minchinhampton office via West End, into Windmill Road and out towards Minchinhampton Common. On reaching Tom Longs Post (crossroads in the centre of the common) turn left and then immediately right signposted to Amberley. Continue down the hill into the village and take the first right hand turn after The Amberley Inn. Follow the lane bearing left for circa 400 yards and as the lane drops down the hill, Amberley Cottage will be found on your right hand side; there is a large gravel parking area below the house.
