Location

Rose Cottage is situated in Pinfarthings, a charming and quiet hamlet, on the upper slopes of a west facing valley. The property is adjacent to Minchinhampton Common, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which extends to about 600 acres of Common Land. The house is at the edge of Amberley village which boasts two public houses, a shop/post office, primary school and Church. Nailsworth, in the valley below, has excellent shopping including a renowned delicatessen (William’s Kitchen), with its fresh fish counter, Raffles Wine Merchant and an award winning bakery - Hobbs. Stroud is about 3 miles and supports a Waitrose and a thriving and successful weekly Farmers Market. The larger centres of Tetbury, Cirencester, Cheltenham and Bath provide a wider range of specialist shops and cultural activities. Gloucester with its world famous cathedral is easily reached with impressive shopping at Gloucester Quays.

Communications are excellent with junction 13 of the M5 motorway being about 5 miles away, giving easy access to Bristol, Cribbs Causeway and Birmingham. Junction 18 of the M4 is about 16 miles away giving access to London. Trains from Stroud to London Paddington take approximately 1 hour 30 minutes and approximately 80 minutes from Kemble. Bristol International Airport is about 40 miles away.

Sporting opportunities in the area include: sailing at the Cotswold Water Park; racing at Cheltenham, Bath and Chepstow; polo at Cirencester Park and Westonbirt; gliding at Aston Down; horse riding from local stables; and golf at Minchinhampton and Cotswold Edge. There are lovely walks over Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons.

There is a wide choice of schools in the area, including the renowned prep school, Beaudesert Park, which is on Minchinhampton Common, and Amberley has its own Church of England primary school. In Stroud both the grammar schools, Stroud High School for Girls and Marling School for boys, are rated outstanding by OFSTED, and in the independent sector, Westonbirt, Wycliffe College and the Cheltenham schools are all nearby, and benefit from direct school bus services from Amberley.

Description

Rose Cottage is a deceptively spacious family home. Grade II listed and providing well proportioned rooms arranged over three floors. Dating back to the late 18th century the property possesses considerable character and period features including wooden Gothic windows, exposed beams, fireplaces and stone flagged floors. These blend well with the contemporary appointments including the Bulthaup kitchen and the Philip Starke and Villeroy & Bosch bathroom suites. The large windows and high ceilings encourage a feeling of space. The house it should be noted is also of historical and literary note, as the current property can still be recognised as the Rose Cottage featured in the 19th century novel ‘John Halifax Gentleman’ by Dinah Craik.

Internally the accommodation is well arranged. The front door leads into the part panelled entrance hall off which is the staircase. Part glazed panelled doors lead into the sitting room with fireplace and polished wooden floorboards. There is an open way through to the drawing room with a superb inglenook fireplace, as well as an outside door. To the rear of the house is the dining room with full height stone fireplace, polished floor boards and double French doors leading onto the garden terrace. Adjacent is the kitchen/ breakfast room with a utility room, larder room and cloakroom being found off the rear hall. It is worth noting that the kitchen could be combined with the dining room to make a superb multi-purpose room.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms, dressing room, family bathroom and a shower room. Like the first floor, the second floor is also approached by two staircases although all rooms are interconnecting. Here there are two further bedrooms as well as two bathrooms, a studio/play room and an office. In total the accommodation extends to about 4, 500 square feet.

The garden is a particular feature of the property and extends principally to the side and rear of the house. They have been carefully landscaped and maintained, and include an ornamental pond with decking over part of it. As well as a terraced lawn there are a wide variety of maturing plants, shrubs and fruit trees. A high degree of privacy is afforded by thuja, bamboo and laurel hedging. Attached to the house is a spacious garage with plentiful storage area, beside which is an area of private parking for two cars.

Square Footage: 3,834 sq ft
