Full description

A substantial six bedroom Victorian family home set in glorious gardens, with a large double garage, useful outbuildings and plenty of off road parking.

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.
The village of Snitterfield lies in the midst of undulating countryside some 4 miles (6.4km) north of Stratford upon Avon. The village is a thriving local community with a Primary School and Toddler Group, village shop, Parish Church, various sports and hobby clubs and its own website and newsletter.



Oak Lodge - Located between Stratford upon Avon and Snitterfield, just off the main A46, Oak Lodge enjoys a private setting with easy access to both town and village and to major transport networks.

This substantial and very attractive family home was built in the 1850's and retains many characteristic Victorian features, both internal and external. Set in a plot of around 1 acre, the house is surrounded by lovely gardens and enjoys views over open countryside to the rear. In addition to the double garage there is plenty of parking space to the front of the property.

The majority of the windows are double glazed, with those to the front and sides also being fitted with secondary glazing.

Approached through a pretty gabled porch, the front door opens to a reception hall with oak flooring and an archway opening to a further hallway. There is a good sized cloakroom and a useful cloaks closet.

A half glazed door with feature glass insert leads to the breakfast kitchen which is fitted with a range of maple floor and wall units incorporating a 1.5 bowl stainless steel sink unit, four plate gas hob with extractor hood above, built in electric oven, space and plumbing for dishwasher, and space for a fridge. The Worcester gas fired central heating boiler is mounted on the wall, and the window overlooks the front garden.

Across the hallway is a separate utility room which has a sink unit, space and plumbing for a washing machine, and direct access to the back garden.

There are three delightful reception rooms, all generously proportioned with high ceilings which add to the sense of light and space.

The dining room, adjacent to the kitchen, has a feature wooden and tiled fireplace with open fire, and two windows overlooking the gardens to the side. There is an attractive hatchway with feature glazed doors between the kitchen and dining room.

The study has a pretty arched display niche and French doors opening to the garden.

The hallway with oak flooring continues to the spacious main living room which is located to the rear of the house and has exposed polished floor timbers and a central raised brick fireplace incorporating a multi fuel burning stove. This charming and comfortable room has been extended with a wide bay window which allows plenty of natural daylight and there are also sliding patio doors on the opposite wall, opening to the terrace and gardens beyond.

From the main reception hall a decorative pine staircase rises to the first floor where there are six bedrooms, five of them good sized doubles, and a family bathroom, all clustered around the main landing.

The master bedroom is located to the front of the house where there is a splendid oriel window. There is a range of built in storage units and the neighbouring, smaller bedroom could serve as an extra dressing room.

There are two further bedrooms to the front of the house, and two overlooking the rear gardens; all benefit from high ceilings and open views, providing plenty of attractive accommodation for family and visitors.

The family bathroom is fitted with a white suite comprising deep white panelled jacuzzi bath, separate fully tiled shower, low level wc, and pedestal wash hand basin.



Outside - Set in a plot of approximately one acre, the property enjoys splendid views over open countryside to the rear and both sides. To the front is a tarmacadam driveway and a large detached double brick garage/workshop, with adjacent parking for several cars.

A brickwork archway leads through to a sheltered courtyard with delightful water feature and steps down to a further terraced area and lawns. There is a feature pond and planted orchard with a range of fruit trees including apple, plum, greengage, damson and pear. The extensive and well kept lawns continue around the house and there are lovely areas of wildflower cultivation, vegetable gardens and large greenhouse, planted borders, trees and shrubs. There is also a workshop adjoining the house, currently used as a pottery studio.



The detached garage has vehicular access to the front parking area, a pedestrian door to the side, and windows to both rear and side of the building. The garage was constructed with sufficiently strong footings to support an additional storey, subject to the necessary planning consents.
