4 bedroom cottage for saleWellesbourne Farm, Off Ash Tree Close, Wellesbourne
A most interesting Grade II Listed 4 bedroom cottage dating back at least 250 years and retaining many original features, set in a quiet cul-de-sac
Wellesbourne - Conveniently situated 5 miles east of Stratford upon Avon and 7 miles south of Warwick, with easy access to the M40, Wellesbourne is a very ancient village which has grown rapidly in recent decades and now enjoys many of the benefits of a small town. In addition to three churches, a primary school, various sports clubs, inns and restaurants, Wellesbourne has its own medical centre and library. The many amenities and historical features of Stratford, Charlecote, Warwick and Leamington Spa are only a short drive away.
2 Wellesbourne Farm comprises the larger part of a 250 year old, Grade II Listed cottage which has been renovated and carefully maintained over recent years. The exterior walls were completely stripped back and re-rendered in 2008 and most of the windows have been replaced recently. The property retains a number of important and attractive original features including exposed timbers, original flagstones, and the cellar which is dry and has been used in the past as a playroom and for storage. The pretty, south-facing front of the cottage has tiled overhangs to the porch and windows and is framed by a quiet, leafy foregarden.
The downstairs reception rooms are well proportioned and retain a real sense of the history of the house. To one side of the entrance hall there is a sociable farmhouse kitchen fitted with bespoke oak units incorporating a Leisure gas range cooker with extractor fan above, 1.5 bowl sink, and integrated dishwasher. There is plenty of room for a large table in front of the bay window, and a timber conservatory has been added to the side of the house, accessed from the rear of the kitchen through a 'donkey door'.
Across the hallway is a spacious living room with the original feature fireplace now housing a wood burning stove. Interior beams and attractive Georgian windows to the front of the house typify the charm and character which extends throughout the house. The hallway retains the original flagstones to the rear; there are stairs down to the cellar, which is dry and has been used as a playroom/den.
To the first floor the master bedroom overlooks the front of the property and benefits from large windows bringing in plenty of natural light and its own en suite shower room. A second double bedroom enjoys the same pretty outlook, and there is a family bathroom which has been newly tiled and is fitted with a white suite including bath with electric shower over.
There is space on the landing for a small study area, with another window to the front; stairs to the rear of the landing lead up to additional accommodation on the second floor which showcases the charmingly quirky beams and other original features in the roof space. Here there are two further bedrooms and a useful small cloakroom, and additional storage space under the eaves.
Outside - There is a good sized area of garden to the front of the property with attractive shrubs and trees, and a further lawned garden to the rear with a feature pond and patio area adjacent to the conservatory. There is driveway access to a single garage at the side of the property; two neighbouring houses have access over this driveway to their own separate garages. To the other side of the cottage there is a second driveway providing parking for two cars, and there is additional kerbside parking in the cul-de-sac if required.
A brick-built shed beside the conservatory has been used as a workshop and for storage.
