Park Terrace, in its entirety, is listed Grade II - such is its importance in the history of Minchinhampton and local architecture. Built in 1833 by David Ricardo, the then owner of Gatcombe Park, Park Terrace stands proudly above Windmill Road. The construction follows the vernacular architecture in both style and materials and the individual dwellings now form most attractive cottage homes, of which this is a particularly fine example.
