Main House Layout Plan

It is not to scale and is intended to show the approximate relationship of one room to another, with an indication of the main fixtures and fittings

Henley in Arden is a picturesque, historic market town located along the A3400 some eight miles from Stratford upon Avon and eight miles from Solihull. It is well placed for quick access on to the M40 at Lapworth Hill (two miles) which provides links to the M42, M5, M1 and M6. In addition, the N.E.C., Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station are all within half an hour's drive. Henley in Arden contains a wide choice of local shops, Inns and restaurants, together with primary and secondary schooling facilities. Rail and bus services provide commuter links to Stratford upon Avon, Solihull and Birmingham.

Haven Pastures occupies a superb location just north of the historic old market town of Henley in Arden and is set in some 150 acres of undulating pasture land, which includes some 60 acres of woodland. Formerly run as a Leisure and Golf Course complex, Haven Pastures has been the subject of restoration and refurbishment and offers an exciting opportunity to acquire a small country estate which still offers further potential, with an excellent income already being received from the various residential and office units. Haven Pastures, which is set amidst Greenbelt countryside and enjoys far reaching undulating views comprises briefly -

CAR PARK - Extensive car park
16 car parking spaces currently held on licence by Jackson Garages of Henley in Arden.
GROUNDS - Formal Gardens, majority walled courtyard, undulating pasture, woodlands, wild life lily pond, in all extending to 150 acres

The present owners have carried out various refurbishment works to the property and units which include regency style replacement upvc double glazing where appropriate and modern kitchen and sanitary ware. There are two access driveways, one leading up to the main residence and Coach House and the other bearing off to the car park, office premises, cottages and penthouse apartment. Most of the land was formerly laid to an undulating 18 hole golf course complete with an irrigation water system and obviously this use could be re-instated if required.
