    About this property

    • This Grade II* Georgian manor house enjoys an elevated and south facing location in a private position with spectacular views. Situated on the edge of the picturesque market town of Minchinhampton, there are few houses of this nature that are more conveniently located. Accessed via a discreet entrance, The Lammas is a fine example of architectural elegance combined with immaculate grounds, exceptional ancillary accommodation, Tithe Barn, an indoor swimming pool and tennis court.

      The Lammas is entered via a semi circular porch on Doric columns supporting a broad bow window above. The double doors enter into an elegant hallway, lit by a large sash window over the open well staircase with cantilevered stone treads. From the hallway a pair of double doors enter into an impressive drawing room, with a classical fireplace and attached ionic columns. Conveniently for entertaining, directly opposite is a formal dining room. Located at the front of the house, these two rooms benefit from lovely views of the grounds and are flooded with natural light pouring through the sash windows. Off the hallway, there is a downstairs cloakroom and well proportioned study with views to the west. The downstairs flows seamlessly through the rear wing of the house, to an intimate snug and a large open plan kitchen with a large inglenook fireplace with an outlook over the kitchen garden. There is a larder, utility room, play room and further cloakroom that adjoin the kitchen with access to the ‘every day door'. The extensive multi room cellars have barrel vaulted ceilings suitable for storage, a wine cellar and workshop space

      The principal staircase rises to the galleried landing, with doors off into the main bedrooms. The principal suite is approached by a short passage flanked by a matching pair of walk-in wardrobes, with a door into a bowed study with far reaching views of the surrounding countryside. An arched door leads through to the principal bedroom suite. Bedrooms 3 and 4 are accessed via this landing, providing well-proportioned and light guest accommodation. From this main landing, a door leads to the half landing with secondary staircase with access to the ground floor and rear wing. A further four bedrooms and two bathrooms run the length of this wing with an outlook over the central courtyard and kitchen garden.

      Conveniently located within the main body of the house, entered by the ground floor study or an external door, this two bedroom self-contained cottage is perfect for multi-generational living, staff accommodation or guests. It benefits from a floor to ceiling sash window in the principal bedroom with extraordinary views across the grounds, a separate open plan kitchen / living area complete with an Aga, adjoined by a utility room and cloakroom.

      This period stone barn is located just off the main central courtyard, by a gravel spur from the driveway to the rear entrance to the property. It comprises an open room with a large pair of timber doors for access with an inset pedestrian door. There is a wide recess with a magnificent original open fireplace and a generous entertaining space.

      The Coach House and The Stables are two stunning adjacent yet separate cottages, connected by a covered, cobblestoned cart shed and adorned by twisting Wysteria. Both properties have recently been refurbished to an impeccable standard. Each with two bedrooms, both benefitting from en-suite bathrooms, immaculate kitchens and under floor heating throughout the ground floor, allowing the perfect guest accommodation or rental opportunity.

This well laid out garden has been designed to have colour throughout all seasons and ensure an oasis within its stoned wall boundary. Nestled in the southern boundary of the property is a pond and traditional folly, ideal for enjoying the evening sun. Out of view from the house, nestled within the undulations of the gardens is a hard tennis court.
