Listed Grade II and designed by the famous Robert Ashbee founder of the Arts and Crafts movement in Chipping Campden, High House is thought to date from 1902 and to have incorporated materials from a previous building. Built for a member of the Guild, it exemplifies Ashbee's knack of integrating new buildings into the established streetscape. High House is approached over a right of way leading to a generous gravelled parking area adjacent to the house. A path leads past the house to the front door on the far side and the entrance hall. The property is full of character including exposed Cotswold stone and timbers and set over 3 floors. Glazed double doors open to the kitchen/breakfast room with a polished oak floor, a range of painted units with oak worksurfaces incorporating a Belfast sink, integrated fridge and freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, a Rangemaster cooker with 5 ring gas hob and matching wall cupboards. The L-shaped sitting/dining room also has oak flooring and a moulded Cotswold stone fireplace with an inset gas fired stove. There is a generous conservatory with electric underfloor heating and a door to outside. A staircase leads down to the lower ground floor bedroom with its own ensuite bathroom. From the hall the stairs lead to the first-floor landing, off which there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. A wrought iron pedestrian gate leads directly from Sheep Street to steps to the front door. The drive offers parking for 2/3 cars and the garden is neatly laid out with stone retaining walls leading to two terraces. It is principally laid to lawn with flanking shrubs and trees, a paved eating area and a garden shed. Chipping Campden is one of the most beautiful and historic of all the Cotswold market towns. It lies in a fold of the Cotswold Hills in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty approximately 12 miles to the south east of Stratford-upon-Avon and 22 miles north of Cheltenham. The town is well known for its traditional Cotswold architecture, much of it dating back to the Middle Ages. There is a good range of shops catering for most everyday needs as well as a number of specialist suppliers, a library, schools and a doctor's surgery. Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon are the main shopping and cultural centres for the region. The surrounding countryside offers many excellent walks and rides and there are ample sporting opportunities. There is a mainline station to London from Moreton-in-Marsh (about 8 miles) and most West Midland centres are within daily commuting distance.
