Full descriptionA Grade II listed part-Georgian farmhouse with adjoining 3-bedroom cottage and excellent outbuildings, with gardens and paddock, in all just under an acre, leading down to the River Alne.
Before the Holyoake Estate was broken up in the early 1980s, this charming property was the principal farmhouse and was very much part of the working farm. This Grade II listed property dates from Elizabethan and Georgian times, with some obvious additions and alterations made in the Victorian era to the basic structure.
Today, the 4-bedroom farmhouse has extensive, well spread out accommodation, ideally for large families wanting their own space. To the front is a completely self-contained 3-bedroom cottage, which has been let in recent years, generating excellent income. The old cow byre and dairy, which has access from the oversized double garage, has consent for conversion into two sizeable holiday let cottages (12/00273/EXT www.stratford.gov.uk/planning). This is also a first-rate building for storage of classic and vintage cars, domestic games room and recreational space or commercial storage and office space, subject to planning consent being granted.
On the road from Wootton Wawen to Great Alne and Alcester, it lies in the depths of unspoilt rural Warwickshire. Some 3.5 miles from Henley in Arden and 4.5 miles to the old market town of Alcester, with its facilities and shops, including Waitrose.
