    About this property

    • Located in the idyllic village of Swerford, Cranemore is a quintessential Cotswold cottage which commands a central position as an attractive, Grade II Listed stone property. Dating back to the early 18th century, this charming home seamlessly combines external traditions and a wealth of period features, yet has been sympathetically refurbished by the current owners. Attention to detail can be seen throughout with its immaculate and beautifully presented interiors.

      Upon entering, the ground floor is welcoming and comprises a sitting room, dining room and kitchen with a utility area. The sitting room is spacious and light, filled with character features including focal points of the inglenook fire place, exposed beams, delightful window seats and oak flooring. Continuing through is the dining room, which is generous with double doors leading out to the garden, making it the perfect area for entertaining. The kitchen offers modern appliances including Miele induction hob and oven, Belfast sink, built in white goods, wooden work surfaces and plenty of storage. In addition there is a utility area containing a WC and sink, with space for washing machine. There is also a door leading out the garden, providing a lovely aspect.

      Upstairs has been meticulously designed to maximise luxury and functionality. There are two generously proportioned bedrooms over two floors. One has a charming vaulted ceiling with stylish en suite and Velux windows flooding with the bedroom with light and wonderful countryside views, whilst the other has built in wardrobes and a separate modern shower room to facilitate.

      Outside continues to compliment this home. Private and enclosed, mostly laid to lawn and low maintenance, mature trees, hedging, a patio seating area and gravelled path to side access can be enjoyed and make for great summer entertaining and alfresco dining in the sun.

    I particularly love the stylish interiors of this quintessential period cottage. The fact it's so close to Soho Farmhouse is an added bonus.
