PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Latimers is an important listed house with interesting historical significance. The house was used as the summer residence in the Tudor period of the Bishops of Worcester. One of the local rectors (1531 to 1545) was William Latimer who was a cousin of the Bishop Latimer who was martyred in Oxford in 1555 during the Marian persecution. The property was known as the Manor House and continued to be so until the present Manor House was constructed nearby in the late 17th century. The house then became an Inn called The Conquering Hero and later was known as The Old Manor House until purchased in 1926 when it was re-named Latimers. It has been extended and restored several times over the years and the current owners have also tastefully refurbished it showing great care to retain and enhance original features. These include carved beams, panelling, doors, flagstone floors, exposed stonework and very fine carved stone fireplaces.

SITUATION

Weston-Subedge lies at the foot of the Cotswold Escarpment below Dovers Hill, just two miles from Chipping Campden and approximately four miles to the north of Broadway. It is a most attractive north Cotswold village and is home to the St Lawrence thirteenth century church, an excellent Public House, village hall and Bowling Green. Dovers Hill (one mile) is the setting for "The Cotswold Olimpicks" which is an annual event dating back to 1612. Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham would be regarded as the main regional, cultural, shopping and educational centres.

OUTSIDE

From the road, wrought iron gates lead over a small bridge onto the drive which is lined by many mature trees including Horse Chestnuts, Holly and a large Bay tree as well as Yews. The drive leads to a parking and turning area with deep border to one side filled with further trees and shrubs and clipped hedge to the other with the entrance leading through a flagged stone courtyard area which then leads to the principle entrance doors and beyond to the formal garden. From the parking area there is an access to the garage. Stone archways lead through a high wall to a further lawned courtyard garden area bordered on one side by the village hall wall covered with plants and to the other side an outbuilding with doors to the garden room, potting shed, further garden store room and wood store. Metal steps to one end of the building lead up to the loft room.

The courtyard then extends into a large lawn with clipped yew hedge beyond having topiary bears and an avenue of fruit trees to one side. Beyond this is the woodland area interspersed with many trees and spring bulbs together with a small stream running through. Adjacent to the fruit trees, a path leads to a further woodland enclosing a hard tennis court (disused) surrounded by beech hedging. The courtyard garden area at the front opens to the formal gardens which are south facing surrounded by a high stone wall and mainly laid to lawn with flower and shrub border. To the rear is a formal rose garden with a centre ornate trellis adorned with climbing roses with a clipped conifer hedge beyond. Stone terrace, an abundance of climbing plants, roses and honeysuckle adorn the rear elevation. Beyond the rose garden stands the outdoor swimming pool. In all 1.78 Acres.
