LIVE STREAM VIRTUAL VIEWING AVAILABLE - CALL FOR MORE DETAILS! A lovely Cotswold character cottage in a great location with two/three bedrooms, a 16’ sitting/dining room and a generous rear garden
A beautifully presented cottage situated in an elevated rural position at popular Hyde. This location, on the outskirts of Minchinhampton, allows for easy access to the shops and amenities of the town with countryside walks on the doorstep. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone under a stone tiled roof with character accommodation arranged over three floors. An entrance hall, 16’ sitting/dining room with wood burning stove, useful inner hall and kitchen are found on the ground floor. A staircase leads up to the landing, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on this level, with another bedroom with eaves storage at the top of the house, on the second floor, with the access to this from the second bedroom. The property is tastefully presented, with high quality fittings such as Oak window sills and floors found throughout, and every window enjoys a pleasant outlook.
There is a small front garden, fenced from the path from the lane and this is gravelled, with a space for a bench and planted borders. The property benefits from a lovely rear garden that is larger than one might expect and bigger than usual for properties of this size. This is mostly laid to lawn, with a dividing trellis and rose arch leading through into the plot. A low Cotswold stone wall separates this from a paved sitting area, with a timber summerhouse and shed (8’9″ x 7’0″ and 6’9″ x 3’0″) at the rear of the garden. The properties within the terrace enjoy a pedestrian access over one another at the rear for access into the rear gardens.
The property is situated on the outskirts of Minchinhampton, a well known historic market town. There is a selection of local facilities here, including a well regarded primary school, doctors surgery and a variety of independent shops including a butcher, chemist, post office and general store. The Crown Inn is in the centre of Minchinhampton and has recently been purchased by The Lucky Onion group, who own several successful pubs and hotels in The Cotswolds, much to the delight of the locals and this is now open and busy. Minchinhampton Common, extending to some 600 acres largely vested in the National Trust, lies on one side of the town, whilst on the other side there is a spectacular series of deep wooded valleys providing delightful walks. More extensive facilities are available in Nailsworth and Stroud, which are both within four miles. Stroud railway station provides regular services to London Paddington.
There is a right of way across the back of Youngs Cottages for the owners of the adjoining properties.
