Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Welford-on-Avon lies on the banks of the River Avon, on the borders of Shakespeare country, the north Cotswolds and the Vale of Evesham. It is well placed for access to the major Midland towns of Coventry, Birmingham, Redditch and Leamington Spa, as well as having good rail links with London from nearby Honeybourne. Its population has doubled during the last twenty years, but careful planning has kept the village comparatively unspoilt, which is a major factor in its considerable popularity as a residential location. Day to day shopping can be carried out in the village, which has one general store, butcher, three public houses, as well as a primary school and Church, the village is well served to local needs and is only four miles south west of Stratford upon Avon. In addition, Junction 15 of the M40 motorway is about ten miles away and the NEC, Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station are all within comfortable driving distance.


Mere Barn is a charming period 'driftway barn' of considerable size, sitting in a truly exceptional plot of around 0.338 acre (1370m2) with independent access in delightful rural surroundings. Planning has been granted to convert the barn into a superb residential dwelling of some 2650 sqft, which will include open plan living areas, family kitchen and four en-suite double bedrooms. (Planning Ref. 15/02731/FUL). The design has been thoughtfully planned to maximise the superb rural views towards the adjoining countryside and golf course, and the main living space is proposed to occupy the upper floor to take advantage of the stunning views. Externally the plot offers an independent sweeping drive which provides ample parking and there is a generous area of garden which could be landscaped to suit the new owner's needs. Although the current plans offer a superb layout, alterations could be made to accommodate a buyer's pre-requisites and lifestyle, subject to prior approval. Full details of the approved plans are available upon request.
