The modest external appearance of Violet Cottage belies the splendour of its accommodation. It was completely restored, modernized and extended in 2015 with work to the very highest standard. The joinery throughout is oak with custom made windows and doors with wax finish and top-quality fittings. The traditional oak front door opens into a cottage style sitting room which has an inglenook fireplace fitted with a gas cast iron stove, an oak window seat and Ashton Grey flagstones which run throughout the ground floor. Glazed double doors open to the central staircase hall, off which there is a well fitted cloakroom with WC and washbasin and a concealed utility area. The kitchen/dining room is beautifully designed, again with flagstone flooring and neatly fitted McCarron kitchen on one side with a polished White Fantasy granite work surface incorporating a deep porcelain sink with top of the range fitted appliances comprising dishwasher, refrigerator and electric multi-function cooker with induction hob. Above there are matching wall cupboards. Beautifully designed and built glazed, oak, bi-fold doors separate the sitting/garden room, again oak built with glazed double doors to the garden and incorporating a gas cast iron stove. From the hall a straight flight of stairs rises to a half landing and thence to two double bedrooms on this floor. The front bedroom has oak mullioned windows on two aspects and built-in lit wardrobes; the rear bedroom has a feature oak window with views over the pretty rose garden. There is a family bathroom with dado panelling and a white suite of roll top bath with shower attachment, washbasin, WC with a glazed corner shower cubicle. The linen cupboard also houses the high-capacity Worcester Bosch gas fired central heating and domestic hot water boiler. On the second floor the galleried master bedroom, with exposed oak beams and feature stonework, an en-suite bathroom, again with Burlington roll top bath with shower above, washbasin inset into a granite surround and WC. There is a large storage loft, fully floored housing the IT Cat 6 cabling and AV equipment that connects with sockets in all principal rooms. All rooms have dedicated lighting circuits and ample 13-amp sockets, many with USB ports. To the rear of the house there is a stunning garden with a stone flagged terrace and steps leading up to a lawn with well stocked flower borders and an apple tree. At the far end there is a further terrace and a summer house/studio/office similarly fitted to the house with oak windows and a stone flagged floor, ideal for home working. 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.
