The Stables offers a bright and spacious family home in a superb tucked away location in the heart of Littleworth in the parish of Amberley. Located on the site of a former stable block, the property has been in the same ownership since it was built in the 1970s. Accessed via a pretty lane, gated parking opens to a gravel parking area. A porch provides shelter over the front door which opens to a good sized reception hall. The kitchen is clearly the heart of the home and offers fitted units with ample storage and views to the rear garden and the village allotments. A dining room leads open-plan off the kitchen, making this a superb space for entertaining family and friends. There is also a good-sized utility room and a cloakroom. The main reception room is a wonderfully bright and spacious room with a feature fireplace providing a lovely focal point, offering the perfect cosy-up for the colder months. A conservatory leads off the sitting room, along with a home office.
Upstairs, five bedrooms offer well-thought out spaces with ample built-in storage. The principal bedroom is triple aspect, making it a superbly bright room and also benefitting from an en-suite shower room. Four further bedrooms and a family bathroom, complete the first floor.
The garden is mostly to the side of the house with a large southerly facing patio, ideal for alfresco entertaining in the summer months. A lawned area runs across the rear of the property with a traditional dry stone wall boundary. To the front of the house there is gravel parking for several cars plus a garage.
Leave 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 into the village, pass The Amberley Inn on your right and take the next single-track road on your right. Follow this road up the hill until you see The Black Horse Pub on your left. Keeping right, the next small right-hand turn leads to the property. For ease, please park near the Black Horse when first viewing where one of our representatives will meet you.
Littleworth is a charming hamlet in the parish of Amberley. A quintessentially Cotswold village located on the fringe of Minchinhampton Common, Amberley is surrounded by hundreds of acres of National Trust Land and glorious rolling hills. With a sought after village school and two popular pubs, both within easy walking distance of The Stables, the village has a tremendous sense of community spirit. The surrounding Minchinhampton Common is 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, as well as a good selection of schools in the private sector, including nearby Beaudesert Park.
London is within 2 hours by car or circa 90 minutes by train from nearby Stroud, which also has a large Waitrose along with a host of other supermarkets. Closer still, are Minchinhampton and Nailsworth, both small market towns with a good range of independent retailers.
