Charming Grade II listed Manor House in the heart of Shipston-on-Stour
Shipston-on-Stour is a vibrant former market town situated in South Warwickshire and surrounded by undulating farmland. It has a predominantly Georgian High Street and Market place which benefits from being away from through traffic. Sheep Street is a mainly residential street just off the main shopping area and contains a number of delightful period houses, many dating from the 18th Century. The town is a thriving local centre with a doctors' surgery and small NHS community hospital, excellent local shops including two butchers and a fishmonger, as well as a number of pubs and restaurants and recreational facilities, serving its own population and a number of surrounding villages. Shipston-on- Stour was recently included in a survey in the Sunday Times as one of the top 10 market towns in which to live and Sheep Street was mentioned as the most desirable street in the town. Further shopping and leisure activities are available in the surrounding market towns of Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Norton, Stratford-upon-Avon and Banbury. Primary and secondary schools in Shipston-on-Stour and Chipping Campden (8 miles), grammar schools for boys and girls in Stratford-upon-Avon, independent schools include Tudor Hall, Bloxham, Kitebrook, Kingham Hill and The Croft whilst further afield are Cheltenham, Rugby, Warwick and Beaudesert Park.
Connections are good with a direct train service from Moreton-in-Marsh to London Paddington (from 87 minutes) and Banbury to London Marylebone (from 58 minutes). M40 (J11) at Banbury (about 15 miles) for London and the South or M40 (J12) Gaydon (about 16 miles) for Birmingham and the North.

Dating back to the 18th Century with later additions, The Manor House is Grade II listed and built of stone under a slate roof. Situated in the heart of Shipston-on-Stour, it offers well proportioned and flexible family accommodation over three floors. The Manor House was converted into two dwellings in 1951 with the Manor House forming the principle part of the building.
The building has retained many of its original features, whilst having been modernized internally by the current owners to provide beautifully styled, spacious accommodation, producing a combination of charming period features including beamed ceilings, cornicing, sash windows and window seats, with contemporary living.
The front door opens to an inner porch and generous entrance hall with wooden flooring giving access to the study and dining room at the front of the house. There is planning permission and listed building consent in place to extend the current kitchen to create a larger kitchen/ breakfast room with lantern roof and utility room, planning reference 06/03010/FUL / 06/03011/LBC. The drawing room with a working fireplace and marble surround has French doors and full length shutters leading out to the garden, and a cloakroom completes the flow of the ground floor.
On the first floor is a spacious landing with two double bedrooms at the front of the house, both with wooden floors and window seats, a family bathroom with roll top bath, limestone floor and under floor heating, and separate WC. The principle bedroom is at the rear of the house with an abundance of light overlooking the garden, and benefits from built in storage and an en-suite Matki shower room with travertine floor and under floor heating.
There are three further double bedrooms on the second floor, a shower room and a large studio room which offers flexible additional living space. From the studio a balcony looks out across the garden, over the rooftops and onto undulating farmland.
The facade of the house is clad with wisteria and enclosed by iron railings. To the rear of the property is a walled garden providing privacy and a paved terrace which runs along the length of the house and which can be accessed from the utility room and drawing room providing ideal entertaining space. The walled garden is predominantly laid to lawn, with established borders and a variety of trees. Of particular note is a Mulberry tree which is believed to be over 400 years old. Behind the rear wall is a double garage and additional off street parking which are approached from Telegraph Street, as well as a bothy which provides useful outdoor storage.
This is a unique opportunity to purchase this Grade II listed Town House, in a most desirable location at the heart of this vibrant market town- recently voted within the top 10 best places to live by the Sunday times.
