Ambrose Cottage is a beautifully presented detached character cottage a few hundred yards from the historic Market Square in the centre of Minchinhampton, a quintessential Cotswold market town. This location is very much part of the good local community and allows for easy access to both the shops and amenities of the town and hundreds of acres of National Trust land at Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons. The property is a typical Cotswold stone cottage at heart but it has been cleverly extended twice, adding a modern touch that elevates the accommodation and balances the old house, creating something rather special. The entrance hall is now in the centre of the house, with the sitting room to the left. This 15′ sitting room has a wood burning stove with a pretty surround and two windows to the front. The kitchen/breakfast room is to the right of the hall and has a contemporary feel, with modern units, a five ring hob and integrated appliances. One then walks into the garden room, at the rear of the property. This 14′ room could be used as either a second living space or a dining room, and has bi-fold doors that open on to the garden at the rear. A rear hall, useful utility room and cloakroom/wc are also on the floor, with a landing, lovely master bedroom with two double wardrobes and en suite shower room, family bathroom, two further double bedrooms and a good single room above, on the first floor. The house is beautifully decorated, with tasteful colour schemes complementing the character and high quality feel.
The rear gardens are south facing and are a particular feature, with a lovely entertaining area immediately behind the house, by the garden room and wide feature timber faced steps that lead up onto the lawn. This area is level, well designed and beautifully planted, with a paved seating area at the rear of the plot. A side gate leads to a covered CARPORT and single DETACHED GARAGE. Whilst perfectly serviceable, the current owners would like to point out that this area could be developed, as there is space to demolish the existing structure and create a double garage, perhaps with a study over, subject to any relevant planning permission and consent. There is a long gated drive to the front of this with space to park several cars.
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 independence shops including a butcher, chemist, post office and general store. There is also an empty public house in the centre of Minchinhampton and this 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. 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.
