Seller Insight - Having lived in this beautiful modern property at the heart of this thriving village community, the current owner recalls enjoying the large useable rooms of the property with his wife and their dog Ted for the past five years. The house ticked all of the boxes for us. he describes, Its just an easy house to live in. We wanted to live in a village with good amenities and Kineton is just that. There are all the amenities you could ask for, with two well stocked shops, a post office, doctors surgery, hairdressers and an excellent community spirit. There is always something going on throughout the year whether it is amateur dramatics, summer fairs, the Victorian Christmas street market or the village cinema which is held twice a month at the sports and social club. There is also a 13th century church, a primary and secondary school and two excellent public houses as well as a locally renowned Indian Restaurant.
We were looking to move in order to find a house that had better commuter links. My job takes me across the country, so the location here is ideal, with the M40 junction close by, providing an excellent North/South link. Whether by road or rail, Kineton is ideally situated for commuting to both London and Birmingham, with National Rail links from Leamington Spa, Stratford-upon-Avon, Stratford-upon-Avon Parkway, Warwick, Warwick Parkway and Banbury; all equidistant from the property. We are lucky to be situated between four superb towns, each has equally good services for shopping and dining, yet they all hold their own charm and history which provides a good variety when going out for the day. We are also just 20 minutes away from the Cotswolds and have taken great pleasure from driving through the picturesque towns of Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold in our convertible on a sunny day.
The property is ideal for entertaining, with well proportioned bedrooms and there are en-suite bathrooms, allowing for guests to stay overnight with their own facilities. Our favourite room is the living room with the rear French doors which lead onto the garden. We also adore our garden room, where we often host dinner parties. The South facing garden is a suntrap, and provides excellent space for entertaining guests on a summers evening or relaxing on the patio with a glass of wine, whilst listening to the sounds of the water feature. Being very spacious, the grounds would be ideal for those with green fingers as it offers plenty of scope for landscaping.
