Full description

An interesting four storey period townhouse in the heart of the town, close to the railway station, with great potential for development subject to the necessary planning consents.

Stratford Upon Avon - Stratford upon Avon is internationally famous as the birthplace of William Shakespeare and home to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and attracts almost four million visitors a year who come to see its rich variety of historic buildings. Stratford is also a prosperous riverside market town with fine restaurants and inns, a good choice of public and private schools and excellent sporting and recreational amenities.

2 Arden Street - Located at the end of a terrace of strikingly attractive late 19th/early 20th century properties, this imposing house with its wealth of attractive architectural detail makes an immediate impression. Constructed in red brick with stone trim and decorative tiling, the four storey house offers a rare and exciting opportunity to update and - subject to the necessary planning consents - reconfigure the spacious accommodation within. Detailed plans were drawn up in 2003 for the conversion of the property to apartments; these plans are available for inspection upon request and could form the basis of a new application for planning consent.

A wonderful Gothic style tiled porch forms the main entrance to an elegant hallway with decorative tiled flooring and the original staircase with wrought iron banisters.
The main living room, to the front of the house, is a generously proportioned and gracious room with characteristically high ceiling and coving, and a large marble fireplace which provides an attractive focal point. The tall bay window brings in plenty of natural light, and the original floorboards have been lovingly restored to their former glory.

Behind the living room is a second, good sized reception room currently used as a dining room, quietly situated with a large window overlooking the rear courtyard/garden. A side door to the garden is located to the rear of the hall.
There is access beneath the staircase to the cellar, which has power and light but would benefit from tanking in order to make full use of the additional space.

The kitchen, to the rear of the property, also benefits from a high ceiling and large window above the sink unit, looking out to the rear courtyard. The existing kitchen units, which would benefit from updating, incorporate a double acrylic sink unit. There is space and plumbing for a washing machine, and space for a cooker and fridge.
Behind the kitchen is a bathroom with separate adjoining wc; this area could, subject to the necessary planning approvals, be reconfigured to extend the kitchen or provide additional accommodation as part of a larger conversion.

The pretty staircase with its original panelling and iron banisters sweeps up to the first floor. The layout here currently reflects that of the downstairs rooms, with a delightful, large and bright master bedroom to the front of the property and two further bedrooms, both having fitted wash hand basins and windows overlooking the rear garden, and one having a separate wc.
The master bedroom has a large built in closet which has been partially plumbed for potential enlargement and conversion to an en suite shower room. There is also a smaller room to the side of this bedroom which is currently used as a study but was formerly a bathroom and could be reinstated as such.

A further flight of stairs leads up to the second floor where there is a large vaulted studio with a window beneath the eaves to the front of the property; this would make a stunning work room or office space. A smaller room alongside is currently used for storage. Further eaves space behind the existing rooms could be developed as part of a larger conversion, subject to the appropriate consents.

The property benefits from a gas megaflow central heating system and is double glazed throughout with the exception of the second floor window to the front of the property, which is single glazed, and the two decorative leaded windows alongside the stairway in the hall, which are triple glazed.

Outside - The south-east facing courtyard and garden to the rear of the property are beautifully kept and are designed for minimal maintenance, being largely laid to gravel with attractive shrubs and borders and small feature trees. There is a neat shed for the storage of tools and garden equipment.
A side passage, shared with the neighbouring property, gives access to the main road at the front for the disposal of bins.

Services - Mains water, drainage, gas and electricity are connected to the property. No tests have been undertaken to the service installations. Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries and investigations before finalising their offer to purchase. Gas fired central heating is installed.

Tenure - We understand that the property is for sale Freehold.

Fixtures And Fittings - All items mentioned in these particulars are included in the sale price, all others are expressly excluded.

Council Tax - We understand that the property has been placed in band E with Stratford upon Avon District Council.

Location And Viewings - The property is located in the centre of town, close to the junction where Arden Street (A4390) meets Greenhill Street and the Alcester Road (A422). Situated directly across the road from 'The Stratford' hotel and conference centre, and a short walk from the railway station, number 2 can be identified by the Sheldon Bosley Knight sale board.

Viewings strictly by appointment with the Agents.
