Crossways Kitchen by Spitfire Bespoke Homes

The quintessential ‘chocolate box’ cottage is such an enduringly popular style of property, that recent research revealed the average sale price is £625,553; more than three times the national average. Crossways is a new collection of cottages by Spitfire Bespoke Homes, in the picturesque market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire. The new homes combine the traditional Cotswold vernacular with a luxurious internal specification, for an elegant and authentic finish.

Part of Spitfire’s Cotswold Collection, Crossways is a bespoke development of 20 three and four-bedroom properties, located in the very heart of Stow-on-the-Wold. The homes have been designed to replicate the distinctive honey-coloured stone streets around them, integrating seamlessly into the historic market town.

Mark Johnson, Partner at Knight Frank, comments: “Spitfire is known for creating luxury homes in some of the UK’s most desirable locations, that reflect the local character and ambience. Crossways is a perfect example of this, marrying the unique Cotswolds architectural style with their signature bespoke interiors.”

All of the homes at Crossways boast an individually designed, hand-painted solid oak kitchen, with quartz worktops, glass splashbacks, and Siemens integrated appliances. Meanwhile the bathrooms are fitted with contemporary white sanitary ware by Villeroy and Boch, with high-quality polished chrome fittings by Hansgrohe. Every property also benefits from parking space for two cars, within a timber clad car barn.

Situated in the centre of Stow, Crossways is brilliantly positioned for residents to enjoy the town’s fantastic amenities. Stow epitomises sophisticated Cotswolds country living, and is home to a mix of chic restaurants, delis, boutiques and galleries, as well as cosy country pubs, tea shops and antique stores. The Cotswolds is the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England, and as the highest town in the Cotswolds, Stow offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

Stow is an idyllic place to raise a family, with a superb selection of primary, secondary, public and state schools nearby. The Cotswold School, for 11-18 year olds, is conveniently located just a few miles from Crossways, and has been rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted for its last four consecutive inspections. The development is also within easy reach of the highly-regarded Cheltenham Ladies School, Cheltenham College and Kirkbrook School.

The Cotswolds is ideal for those living and working in London who are keen for a lifestyle change. The region is popular with commuters, and Crossways is only a short drive from Moreton-in-Marsh train station, from where services into London Paddington take around 90 minutes. It is also served by excellent links to the M4, M5 and M40 for Bristol, the Midlands, and the South.

Prices at Crossways currently start from £445,000 for a three-bedroom cottage. For more information, visit
