Tumblewood is an outstanding family house with beautifully presented living space. The vendors have created a very stylish home with great attention to detail. Unlike most Cotswold houses, Tumblewood is very well-proportioned with large low windows that flood the rooms with light and take full advantage of the amazing westerly views.
The large reception room immediately gives a great feeling of space, with double doors on either side leading to the sitting room and dining room. Beyond is the galleried drawing room, with a huge window and French doors onto a terrace and a flight of steps leading up to a library area. The kitchen/breakfast/family room is the heart of the house. Fitted with a range of bespoke units by Stroud Furniture Makers, there is a large island unit and space for a big dining table. French windows open onto a paved terrace. A proper walk-in larder provides excellent storage. Leading off the dining room is a gym with a shower room and sauna and, approached from the drawing room, a wine cellar. The first floor is approached by a double staircase leading to the galleried landing. The master bedroom has a dressing area and a very well-appointed bathroom. There is a separate guest bedroom suite and two further bedrooms served by a family bathroom. On the second floor is the fifth bedroom with a raised playroom area leading off, a further bathroom and a home cinema room/sixth bedroom. There is also a useful attic storage area.
Amberley is an attractive hillside village which lies just below Minchinhampton Common. The nearby towns of Minchinhampton and Nailsworth have a good range of shops and services as well as excellent pubs and
restaurants. Stroud has a wider range of shopping facilities as well as its award-winning Farmers Market. Other local towns include Tetbury and Cirencester. The main regional centres are Cheltenham, Gloucester, Bath, Bristol and Swindon.
Educational facilities within the area are excellent. Beaudesert Park School is about half a mile away and other schools include Wycliffe College, Rendcomb, Westonbirt and the Cheltenham Colleges. A number of excellent grammar schools including Stroud High School for girls and Marling School for boys. Direct rail services to London Paddington from Kemble or Stroud Stations, the former scheduled to take from about 75 minutes. Excellent walks and rides on Minchinhampton Common and in the surrounding countryside. A wide choice of sporting facilities. There are three golf courses at Minchinhampton. Many equestrian events including Badminton Horse Trials, polo at Cirencester and Westonbirt and National Hunt racing at Cheltenham.
Tumblewood is approached via a sweeping driveway leading to a gravelled parking area to the side of the house, with steps up to the front and back doors. There are paved terraces outside both the drawing room and kitchen, the latter edged by pleached hornbeams. Mixed borders lead to lawns and a circular pond. The bank at the rear of the house is densely planted with a mixture of flowers including lavender, roses, spring bulbs and geraniums. There is also a manageable vegetable garden area and a separate orchard. Below the driveway is a flat lawn with a small pond. The garage block comprises two open fronted
garages together with a store shed and a wood store. External oak steps lead up to a first floor studio with a shower room en suite.
