Full description

A bright and spacious three bedroom period cottage, thoughtfully extended to almost 1500 sq ft, situated at the heart of one of the loveliest south Warwickshire villages.

2 The Bank - Set snugly in the middle of a neat row of three, this character cottage offers the best of both worlds - the charm of a home with real history, and the space and convenience of a well-designed modern property. Sympathetically restored and extended, the house sits in one of the prettiest parts of this most popular village, just a stone's throw from the deservedly famous Howard Arms gastropub and with the original village stocks just outside the front door!

An ideal weekend retreat, 2 The Bank also has the space and flexibility to make a wonderful family home, and represents an increasingly rare opportunity to invest in a period property in Ilmington.

The house retains its exposed beams and has two pretty Cotswold stone fireplaces in the downstairs reception rooms. Glimpses of the original stone walls, a charming window seat overlooking the green to the front, and timber doors and fittings preserve the character of the original building. The extension of the property to provide a generous master bedroom with ensuite, a spacious modern breakfast kitchen and utility room, and a large, bright conservatory has been done with care to retain the integrity of the cottage.

The two downstairs reception rooms provide flexible social space, and the large breakfast kitchen and conservatory beyond offer plenty of additional capacity for dining and entertaining as well as family activities.

The kitchen and utility room are both fitted with stainless steel sinks and an extensive range of fitted wall and floor cabinets, including integrated dishwasher, electric oven, electric induction hob, fridge, and freezer.

Upstairs there are two good sized bedrooms to the front of the house, and a very generous master bedroom to the rear with an ensuite shower room and an open outlook over the rear garden and fields beyond. The family bathroom has a modern white suite with an electric shower fitted above the bath and a heated towel rail.

Outside - The cottage is set back from the road behind a well-maintained green, and is accessed from a short communal driveway. There is a raised planting bed to the side of the porch, for those all-important 'roses round the door'! To the rear of the property is a patio area with steps leading up to a lawned garden. From here there are views to the front over the village rooftops, and to the rear over open pasture land.

Ilmington - Nestling at the foot of the Ilmington Downs, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Ilmington is the quintessential English village with its Cotswold stone buildings and easily accessible countryside. Situated 8 miles south of Stratford upon Avon and 4 miles west of Shipston on Stour, Ilmington has a pretty 11th century church, its own superb recreation grounds, a number of active sports clubs and societies, a very popular Primary School, and two Inns.
