An attractive and versatile four bedroom detached period cottage with delightful gardens, in a peaceful setting overlooking former parkland within this pretty and highly sought after village.
Tweentowns and Violet’s Cottage form a period property of immense charm believed to date back to the late 17C - early 18C. It retains many original features including exposed beams, fireplaces, an elm winder staircase and window seats. Formerly a row of agricultural workers’ cottages set within a sheltered combe, this family home consists of a charming double fronted property with a smaller attached and interconnected two bedroom cottage, which is ideal to pro-vide self-contained accommodation or to provide an income stream from holiday lets, but has been used as one family home and could be re-modelled further if required. In the same owner-ship for over twenty years, the property has been extended to the rear to provide a fabulously light and spacious glazed kitchen/breakfast room, almost 10m long, with stunning views over adjoining countryside. The gardens have evolved to include a series of thoughtfully designed terraced lawn, dining and seating areas, some sheltered and some with far reaching views. There is the opportunity to create a home office, gym or garden room adjacent to the pond ter-race. The property is not listed and sits just outside the village Conservation Area and there is scope to re-model, subject to regulations.
Swerford is a charming village of two halves, separated by a rural lane known as Between Towns which gives the cottage its name. It is made up of traditional ironstone houses and cot-tages and occupies a secluded valley to the north east of Chipping Norton. The Boxing Hare, a popular dining pub, is within walking distance. The next door village of Hook Norton has daily amenities and Great Tew, to the south, has the famous Falkland Arms pub and a fine bak-ery/café.
