A superb example of a semi detached character Cotswold stone cottage in a popular road in sought after Minchinhampton with two double bedrooms, a 15’ sitting/dining room and a pretty rear garden
Characterful and stylish are two great words to describe this Cotswold Stone semi detached cottage in Butt Street, a popular road just off the centre of lovely Minchinhampton. This location means easy access to the shops and amenities of this historic market town (including the newly renovated pub, under prestigious new ownership and opening in October) but prospective buyers will also love the fact that Minchinhampton and Rodborough commons are within easy reach – hundreds of acres of National Trust land just up the road. The property is very much of the local vernacular but has recently been bought bang up to date by the current owner, who obviously has a natural fair for interior design. The accommodation is arranged over three floors. A hall, 15’ sitting/dining room with Oak flooring and a fireplace with recently fitted wood burning stove and a 15’ kitchen with refitted units and integrated appliances are on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the sitting room to a super 15’ bedroom with built in cupboards and storage and a bathroom, with a second double bedroom at the top of the house, on the second floor.
There is gated access to the side of the property and this leads to the rear garden. This area has been well planned, with a deck with inset lighting, a paved corner with a built in sitting area and a level lawn, with shrubs and plants dotted through the plot. There are rights of way for the neighbouring properties though the garden, as is often the case with properties of this style, but they are currently rarely used.
The property is located close to 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. There is also an empty public house in the centre of Minchinhampton that 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 apparently opening in October 2019. 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.
