Full Details

Occupying a most idyllic and tranquil location nestling amidst undulating Warwickshire countryside in this unspoilt hamlet, The Thatchings offers an exceptionally appealing 5 bedroom country home, built in 2011 to an exacting quality specification with solid oak joinery and contemporary fittings, together with detached garage and self contained two bedroom guest accommodation, all set in gardens extending to nearly one acre with beautiful open country view.

Built on the site of an old thatched cottage, hence its name, The Thatchings offers an outstanding family home, which has been designed to take full advantage of the stunning countryside views with oak framed windows and French doors opening on to the extensive terrace to the rear.

The property is approached via an in and out wide driveway, with timber double gates to either end and from the moment the oak front doors open into the hallway, it is apparent that great care and thought has been given to the layout and design of this lovely home.

With oak flooring and joinery and underfloor heating to the ground floor, the principal rooms radiate from the reception hall and offer a delightful dining room with wood burning stove, excellent drawing room with handsome stone Minster fireplace, good sized study and family room, all of which enjoy views over the garden and countryside to the rear. As you would expect with a home of this calibre, the focal heart of the property is the outstanding open plan dual aspect kitchen with extensive range of hand-made units, smart black four oven Aga and comprehensive range of appliances which include Neff Oven and induction hob, wine fridge and American fridge/freezer. The oak framed orangery style breakfast/living area, open plan to the kitchen, with deep windows and French doors, provides a lovely area in which to relax and enjoy a meal, whilst overlooking the garden and countryside vista.

The first floor accommodation is approached by a purpose made solid oak staircase which rises to the landing and gives access to an outstanding principal bedroom suite with the bedroom having windows to both front and rear, plus fitted wardrobes, in addition to which is a walk in wardrobe closet, separate store plus beautifully equipped en suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms, three en suites, plus family bathroom. Bedrooms 4 and 5 are currently utilised as a bedroom, dressing room and en suite, but could easily revert solely to bedroom use if required.

To complete the picture, there is a substantial detached garage with self- contained two bedroom apartment above, which would provide ideal guest accommodation.

The gardens to the Thatchings lie to the rear and side and have an enviable westerly aspect with an extensive terrace, providing the perfect spot for al fresco dining whilst watching the setting sun!

Here then is an outstanding country home in the most idyllic and tranquil location, offering quality accommodation, set in this most picturesque and highly thought of hamlet, whilst being only some 2 miles from Henley in Arden and 8 miles from Warwick.

LOCATION: Preston Bagot has long been considered an enviable locality in which to reside, nestling amidst unspoilt Warwickshire Countryside, with canal-side walks and the well-known Crabmill Country Inn less than 0.5 miles distant. The larger villages of Claverdon and Lowsonford are within easy reach and the historic market town of Henley in Arden is just some 2 miles away which provides excellent shopping and recreational facilities for day to day needs. Warwick is 8 miles distant and offers excellent schooling facilities, plus Warwick parkway Station, which offers fast commuter links to London via the Chiltern Line to Marylebone. In addition, Stratford upon Avon with its many cultural and tourist attractions, including the royal Shakespeare Theatre and River Avon, lies some 7.5 miles to the South, with the delights of the Cotswolds beyond.
