    About this property

    • Seymour House dates back to the late eighteenth century and is constructed of warm honey coloured Cotswold stone beneath a Cotswold stone roof, the front of which has recently been replaced. The property is Grade II Listed, offers superbly generous accommodation set over three floors and has recently been extensively and sympathetically modernised by the current owners.

      The property offers an abundance of character features throughout including seventeenth century portico with fluted columns, three and four glazing bar sash windows in beaded surrounds and with bull nose cills, wooden shutters, late seventeenth century staircase with heavy turned balusters and a number of feature fireplaces. The current vendors have overseen a comprehensive but sympathetic programme of improvement over the last 15 months including:

      Replacement and restoration of stonework to the exterior.
      Refurbishment of all sash windows and draft proofing.
      Fire and security systems upgraded.
      Kitchen, utility and pantry fitted with Gaggenau appliances.
      Installation of a central water pressure system to reduce energy consumption.
      Cat5 network enabling effortless integration of networked devices and superfast broadband.
      Installation of Viessmann heating system with intelligent thermostat to manage energy.

      The main house is centred around a fabulous contemporary conservatory/garden room with French limestone floor and a productive 140 year-old vine at its centre and wonderful views over the gardens beyond. The conservatory flows through into the open plan kitchen/breakfast room. The utility, laundry room and pantry are neatly tucked behind the kitchen with further access to the courtyard. The drawing room is a wonderful light reception room overlooking the famous High Street. The sitting room/study steps down from the conservatory and is adjacent to the boot room and wine store.

      A magnificent master suite is situated on the first floor with generous ceiling heights and two well-appointed bathrooms and dressing room. There are two further interconnecting bedrooms which look out over the gardens, one with en suite bathroom and one with en suite shower room. The second floor accommodates three bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms. The property benefits from a self-contained apartment and a detached coach house both of which provide first-class ancillary accommodation for guests or staff.

      A paved courtyard lies adjacent to the garden and main house to the rear of the property. Terraces rise from the courtyard and lead to landscaped walled gardens and on to a charming summerhouse. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and a variety of specimen shrubs and trees. A pedestrian gate at the top of the garden leads to the generous garaging and parking with access from Back Ends.

    Local information

    • Chipping Campden is perhaps among the most beautiful and unspoilt of all the Cotswold market towns and the High Street was described by Nikolaus Pesvner as “the best piece of townscape in Gloucestershire, arguably one of the best in England”. Much of the prosperity and wealth associated with the town came from the wool trade which is highlighted by the great perpendicular church of St James's dating from the thirteenth century. Chipping Campden is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and lies within comfortable driving distance of the main centres of Cheltenham, Worcester and Stratford-upon-Avon. There are fast train services to London Paddington from nearby Moreton-in-Marsh station. Chipping Campden itself offers a very good range of shops and other services catering for most day-to-day needs including a doctor's surgery and library.
    • For those interested in country pursuits the general area provides excellent riding and walking within countryside designated as a Special Landscape Area. There are excellent sporting opportunities in the region including golf at Broadway and Naunton Downs, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham. National Hunt Racing at Cheltenham, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and Worcester. Other sporting venues include Premiership rugby at Worcester and Gloucester and County Cricket at Worcester. Stratford-upon-Avon is home to the Royal Shakespeare Company and Memorial Theatre.
