A former public house situated in the heart of this sought after market town offering 3400 sq ft. of interesting, spacious character accommodation, detached two storey outbuilding, gardens and parking
The Trumpet is a superb family house in the heart of the sought after market town of Minchinhampton. Owned by the current occupants for over 30 years and understood to date back to the late 18th century, the property has had many guises. Formerly a public house and, more recently, a well regarded antiques business, The Trumpet has now been retired from commercial use and has been the subject of a comprehensive improvement programme to usher in this change into a first class family home,
with 3400 sq ft. of accommodation arranged over three floors.
The most recent alteration is the striking remodelling for the rear elevation. Architects David Austin were bought in to re-imagine this area and the resulting renovation, with kitchen/breakfast room with Zinc roof, wonderful glazed rear gable and rear hall with galleried landing over is bound to resonate with prospective purchasers looking for exciting family space. The remainder of the ground floor space doesn’t disappoint either, with a 34′ sitting/dining room, useful utility room and 15′ study found on this level.
A well designed staircase leads up from the rear hall. There are more clever touches here – most notably double doors, that open to overlook the kitchen, and a good landing space that will probably be used as a study area. Three bedrooms, a bathroom and a marvellous shower room with a replica traditional British telephone box as a shower cubicle are also on this level, with two further bedrooms art the top of the house. Character features are found throughout the house, with a useful three room cellar accessed from the rear of the property.
The property benefits from an enclosed rear garden and, unusually for property in this area, parking for several cars. This at the rear of the property, accessed through Carriage doors, with a double car port to the right. This is attached to another real feature of the property – A two storey Cotswold stone cottage outbuilding. This could be renovated, subject to building regulations and planning permission, to provide holiday accommodation, a private dedicated work space or annexed accommodation for a dependant relative. The level garden is at the very rear of the plot, enclosed with stone walls and edged with well planted colourful borders stocked with a variety of plants.
The property is located in the centre of Minchinhampton and within easy walking distance of a selection of local facilities including a well regarded Primary School, Library, Doctors Surgery and a variety of independent shops including a butcher, chemist, post office and general store. Minchinhampton Common is nearby and provides in excess of 700 acres largely vested in the National Trust, with the towns of Nailsworth and Stroud offering comprehensive facilities including a main line Railway Station with services to Gloucester, Swindon and London Paddington.
Gas central heating with electric underfloor heating in the kitchen, mains water and drainage.
