A fine country house influenced by the Cotswolds Arts and Crafts Movement with enchanting gardens, set in an elevated position with glorious views.
In 1924 Sir Gordon Russell purchased a plot of land on the outskirts of Chipping Campden and commissioned architect Leslie Mansfield to design a home for his family using traditional materials and methods. Kingcombe is built of locally quarried Cotswold limestone beneath traditional Cotswold roofs with graduated courses and swept valleys. There are numerous mullion windows, solid chimney stacks and fine doorways and porch heads. The house, and garden, became Sir Gordon's passion and the house was enlarged, not for the last time, in 1935 and evolved over time to become substantial country house.
The house stands alone in an elevated position with glorious south easterly views across rolling countryside towards Chipping Campden. The principal accommodation is laid out over three floors. The arrangement and measurements of the rooms can be seen on the accompanying floorplans. Internally the property has exceptional original detailing throughout. The simplicity and craftsmanship of the oak panelling, staircases and fireplaces reflect the influence of the Arts & Crafts Movement in the Cotswolds in the early twentieth century. In recent years, the property, gardens and grounds have been beautifully restored and improved by the current owners to create an exceptional country house.
