Full description

A delightful 4 bedroom, character property with 2 bathrooms, brand new bespoke kitchen, garden room and off road parking in a sought after quiet location within the conservation area.

Shottery - This charming and historic village, where Anne Hathaway's Cottage is located and where there are many other delightful period properties, is only a mile from the centre of Stratford upon Avon and is conveniently situated for access to the M40 and other major road and rail networks. The village itself offers pleasant walks and many social and educational amenities, having a Village Hall used by various community groups and excellent schools including St. Andrew's CofE Primary School and the Girls' Grammar School.

8 Tavern Lane - This most interesting property has origins dating back two or three centuries, and was once the tavern which gives the Lane its name, but over the years it has been transformed into a bright and spacious home. Having the bonus of off road parking and a pretty garden, its location is ideal for access to the town centre, but Tavern Lane itself is a peaceful 'no through road' offering complete seclusion in a delightful setting.

The front facade of the house retains feature lead panelling set into the brickwork below a bay window.
Three steps lead up to the entrance hall and there is a further step up into the kitchen/dining room, which provides an immediate 'wow' factor on entry.

The kitchen has recently been completely refitted with a comprehensive range of bespoke painted floor and wall cabinets. The double oven gas fired Aga is set into an inglenook with tiled and timber surround and mantel above, providing a focal point for a workspace which combines tradition with modern convenience to a very high specification.

The fitted units incorporate integrated Hotpoint dishwasher, integrated Hotpoint fridge/freezer, four plate induction hob, 1.5 bowl stainless steel sink unit, and granite counter tops including carved granite drainer surround to sink. To the front, the dining area includes a fitted window seat in the bay window, and space for a large dining table.

Beyond the kitchen is an inner hallway with a side door leading out to the sheltered car port / driveway, and stairs up to the first floor.

The living room is large and well proportioned, with a corner fireplace having a most attractive original Victorian cast iron inset with tiled side panels, and a solid oak carved surround. A wide archway opens to the newly built garden room which brings in plenty of daylight; there is also a small window to the side of the living room.

The garden room has been constructed to take full advantage of the south facing aspect, and really 'brings the outdoor in'. With one full height side wall to preserve privacy, the rest is fully glazed with a double door opening onto the gravelled path and giving access to the terrace and pretty garden beyond.

From the inner hallway, stairs lead up to a galleried landing; high ceilings add to the sense of space in the good sized bedrooms. Two bedrooms and the family bathroom lead off the main landing, and there is a step up to a further two bedrooms accessed from a short corridor.

The restful master bedroom, situated to the rear of the house, has a pleasant view over the garden and an additional side window creating a bright corner for a desk or dressing table. Newly fitted wardrobes extend along one wall, with opaque glass sliding doors The en suite bathroom is fitted with a white suite comprising panelled bath with Triton electric shower over, low level wc, pedestal wash hand basin and chrome ladder towel rail.

A second large double bedroom, also overlooking the garden, houses the airing cupboard.

The two bedrooms located to the front of the property are both good doubles and their high ceilings and pretty windows add character.

The family bathroom is fitted with a white five piece suite comprising panelled bath, separate electric corner shower with double doors, low level wc, pedestal wash hand basin and bidet.

Outside - The paved driveway to the side of the property provides parking for 2 - 3 vehicles, with partial cover provided by the archway beneath the upper storey. Attractive wrought iron gates open to the rear garden which is south facing and framed by the greenery of surrounding gardens.

Partially laid to lawn and recently replanted, with well designed borders and mature shrubs and small trees, the garden also has a terraced area beside the conservatory, and a wide gravelled pathway, with the original brick wall carrying a glorious clematis along one boundary of the property.
