Violet Cottage is positioned in the heart of West Kington, adjacent to the pretty brook. This handsome Grade II listed village property was sympathetically extended in 2008 and offers generously proportioned family accommodation with a wealth of period features that blend beautifully with lovely contemporary finishes.

The property conveniently has several entrances but is mainly entered into the kitchen which has a wonderful cosy country feel, with an Aga, bespoke units with granite work surfaces, natural stone flooring and a stable door leading onto the sun terraces. Steps lead down to a lovely family room with solid oak flooring and double doors leading onto the gardens and in turn through to a formal dining room with an impressive period fireplace and surround. A second staircase leads from the dining room up to 2 large double bedrooms and a family bathroom which are conveniently independent to the rest of the accommodation therefore making ideal guest rooms.

A handsome wooden staircase leads from the kitchen to a glazed atrium which links the older part of the property with the sympathetic extension, at this level there is a further double bedroom and lovely shower room along with a stunning formal drawing room which has bi-fold doors leading directly on the paved sun terrace and gardens. Stairs lead up to the master bedroom which has a lovely Juliette balcony overlooking the garden. In addition at this level there is a further large double bedroom and another beautiful bathroom.
