THE PROPERTY

A quite exceptional ground floor apartment with dramatic accommodation in a convenient central position. The Property The Chipping Campden Grammar School foundation dates back to the mid-15th century and was founded by John Fereby. In 1628 it was re- founded by Sir Baptist Hicks and the school re-built at that time. It is this building which forms the core of the apartment although the property was largely redeveloped again in 1863. The originally school room is nearly 40' in length and forms a fabulous, high ceilinged living room and features the original 17th century chimney piece with a stone bust of John Fereby set in a classical niche in a broken segmental pediment. A second fire place has a more modest 17th century chimney piece. The high ceiling features impressive hammer beams and there are three four light mullion and transom windows. A central hallway provides access to the well fitted kitchen with a doorway to the garden terrace, two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room and a bathroom. Outside There is a lovely flagged terrace to the rear of The Old Grammar School building with flower borders and seating areas and it is surrounded by a newly built wall ensuring privacy. The garden can be used by all the apartments in the building. There are two parking spaces for 1 The Old Grammar School at the rear of the property access via Calf Lane.
