About this property

  • Judges House is a handsome Grade II Listed semi-detached village house constructed of Cotswold stone with sash windows on the main façade dressed with stone quoins and lintels. Dating back to the 1600s, Judges House at one time was known as “New England” and today provides beautifully presented accommodation with a wealth of period features. The delightful accommodation is laid out over three floors with flagstone flooring in the hall and kitchen and original open fireplaces throughout the property. The charming sash windows allow plenty of light into the property.

    The property is entered via the welcoming reception hall which leads through to the dual aspect dining room. This has an excellent drinks cupboard featuring original granary slatted doors and brass lock. There is a charming formal drawing room with exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove.

    The stunning kitchen/breakfast is the heart of the home with a vaulted ceiling and substantial exposed trusses. Originally the stables, this double height-room has been imaginatively converted using the old stalls to form cupboards and the stable rails to create the staircase to the galleried mezzanine snug above. There is a generously sized utility room and a downstairs cloakroom. The kitchen has access out into the courtyard and garden. The first floor consists of en suite principal bedroom , two further double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The second floor consists of two bedrooms, one of which is en suite. A further bedroom on this floor is currently used as a study.

    To the front of the house is a landscaped garden featuring a green and white planting scheme enclosed by original cast iron railings. A doorway from the courtyard leads through to the "Secret Garden”' which is laid out in a formal Box parterre underplanted with perennials and surrounded by brick paths. Behind cast iron gates is a parking area and double carport with a useful and secure storage area.

A truly exquisite Grade II Listed house in Kingham, one of the most sought after villages in the Cotswolds. You will love how much light floods in through the sash windows and the kitchen is a masterpiece.
