Claverdon is a very popular Warwickshire village lying between the larger towns of Henley in Arden and Warwick and containing a variety of residential dwellings, together with village amenities which include a village hall, post office and stores, parish church, junior and infant school and doctors surgery.


The Victorians knew a thing or to about property developing; high ceilings, tall windows, well proportioned rooms - it's little wonder that houses from this period are so sought after.
This superbly refurbished property, with original parts thought to date to around 1900, has been sympathetically extended and now offers wonderful bright accommodation with period features and bags of character.
Set within stunning grounds of around 13 acres, Beckswhite House combines the elegance of a bygone age with the practicality of a family home. Further land approaching 6 acres to the north of the property is available by separate negotation.

Reception rooms with ornate plaster cornicing and fire surrounds hand-carved from solid oak, are complemented by a spacious Dining Kitchen ideal for family gatherings and entertaining. Of particular note are the delicate ceiling art within the Sitting Room and the stunning Egyptian mural work within the Garden Room.
All five of the bedrooms are double and the Master suite is particularly attractive with hand-painted wardrobes and a spacious en-suite bathroom.
Furthermore, this charming property comes with a very useful 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom self-contained barn conversion, perfect for extended family which is approached via a separate driveway.
In short Beckswhite House offers all the grace and grandeur of a Victorian home balanced with the convenience expected by a modern-day family.
The property is approached via an in and out driveway with electrically operated iron gates where the accommodation briefly comprises:
