Full Details

The Old Stone Barn is a charming conversion, constructed in local Wilmcote Stone with many traditional features, including exposed oak beams, timbers, purlins and flagstone floors in part. The original conversion in 1990, was executed to an exceptional standard and the timeless layout provides the perfect space for a wide variety of buyers' needs and requirements. This wonderful home, which is located at the end of a long-gravelled driveway, is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the amazing rural views, toward the south Warwickshire countryside, as far as the Northern Cotswolds escarpment and across to Meon Hill. In addition, the property in its entirety offers approximately 6 acres of well-tended gardens and pasture land, together with several ancillary buildings which provide the perfect equestrian facility or lifestyle home.

As you enter the property, you are greeted by an impressive, double height dining hallway with dual aspect glazed drift-way and flagstone flooring throughout, off which is a useful study area / library. There is an extremely good size farmhouse kitchen, fitted with a four oven Aga, ample storage, feature angled windows and flagstone flooring throughout. There is a separate garden room, utility and ground floor shower room. The formal sitting room is beautifully proportioned with dual aspect windows and impressive fireplace. This leads to the equally impressive billiard room, with adjoining guest cloaks / shower room. The first-floor split level landing leads to each of the 4 well-appointed bedrooms and the principal bathroom. The large master bedroom has his and hers built-in wardrobes, a very good size en-suite bathroom and access into a dressing room. Externally, the south facing, formal gardens are beautifully arranged and offer both terraced entertaining space and rolling manicured lawns, with a tranquil lake as a central focal point ahead. To accompany, there is a useful covered storage area and 2 stables / store rooms. Beyond, there are several level paddocks enclosed by post and rail fencing which are accompanied by an enclosed yard and wide range of modern farm buildings including a Farmplas timber-framed general purpose building, timber barn and further detached barn/storage facility. In all, the property extends to approximately 6 acres and would ideally suit a buyer with equestrian interests.

Welford-on-Avon lies on the banks of the River Avon, on the borders of Shakespeare country, the north Cotswolds and the Vale of Evesham. It is well placed for access to the major Midland towns of Coventry, Birmingham, Redditch and Leamington Spa, as well as having good rail links with London from nearby Honeybourne. Its population has doubled during the last twenty years, but careful planning has kept the village comparatively unspoilt, which is a major factor in its considerable popularity as a residential location. Day to day shopping can be carried out in the village, which has one general store, butcher, three public houses, as well as a primary school and Church, the village is well served to local needs and is only four miles south west of Stratford upon Avon. In addition, Junction 15 of the M40 motorway is about ten miles away and the NEC, Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station are all within comfortable driving distance.

GENERAL INFORMATION Directions: Leaving Stratford-upon-Avon via the A4390 Evesham Road, proceed to the Welford on Avon junction, turning left.
