Description

Ampney Crucis is a quintessential village located a few miles outside of the market town of Cirencester, commonly known as the capital of the Cotswolds.  Residents are attracted by the unspoilt nature of the village with plentiful character properties, quiet lifestyle, countryside walks on your doorstep and a very well regarded primary school.


The Ridge is a charming Grade II listed detached Cotswold stone cottage believed to originate from the 17th Century and has been extended over the years with extensive renovations by the current owners during their 15 year tenure.


To the front is an ornate wrought iron gate puncturing the Cotswold stone wall leading to the front courtyard area.  A beautiful Oak door brings you into the entrance porch before you arrive at the cosy lounge with a magnificent inglenook fireplace housing a log burner, perfect to keep you warm on a chilly autumnal day.  Off to the left is a secondary dual aspect vaulted ceiling reception room which is ideal for use as a study, hobby room or a place to relax with a good book taking in the garden view.


Back across the living room, you will find a dining area to the rear with French doors leading out to the garden. A further door leads to the inner hallway with the stairs winding up to the upper floors with a downstairs cloakroom underneath, featuring a WC and plumbing for a washing machine.  The kitchen sits at the front of the house with plenty of cupboards and granite worktops with light flooding through the dual aspect stone mullion windows.  There is space for a table comfortably seating 6 for everyday casual dining and there is a fitted electric oven, electric hob, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. 


Heading up to the first floor you can take in the picturesque view of the garden before you reach the landing where there is a separate WC, shower room and bedroom three looking out the front.  The room will take a double bed, freestanding furniture and has a charming window seat.  The master bedroom is a wonderful dual aspect space with built in cupboard and space for further freestanding units.  The original stair case winds down from here into the living room below.

On the second floor is access to eaves storage and a further double bedroom with its own full size ensuite bathroom with WC, bath with shower over and an airing cupboard.


Outside, the gardens extend to around 0.25 acres are a secluded space and well sheltered from neighbouring properties.  There is a stone summer house packed with character and is a perfect spot to shelter from the rain during summer BBQs, ideal as a home office or studio or a really fun place to host dinner parties.  There is a garden shed,  vegetable growing area, plenty of flower beds and a pond with a rill.  Parking is available for a few cars on the gravelled driveway which is privately owned by The Ridge and gives right of way access to the neighbour at Ridge Barn.
