Vendor Interview - For the present owner, Pear Tree Farm with its green and tranquil surroundings provides the perfect antidote to the stress of a busy working life. It is where you can completely relax, follow the changing seasons, and achieve the perfect balance of physical activity and spiritual calm. The owner, Beryl and her husband immediately loved the unique and quirky late Victorian building. It was in need of complete refurbishment when they found it, but it was a labour of love searching reclamation centres for the exact materials to satisfy their high requirements. The house is now a superb blend of original features with the comforts of modern living. The location on the outskirts of Honiley enables a mix of rural calm with the bustling energy of nearby towns. Stratford with its world class theatre, historic Warwick and Coventry: and the NEC provide an extensive range of attractions. The wider area is easily accessed from the M40 and M6, whilst there is a choice of three local railway stations. It is also a sheer delight to open the back garden gate and walk through woodland and across the fields to
Kenilworth Castle, without crossing a road. The main criterion for the property was that it should offer welcome and comfort to a large extended family. With this in mind a ground floor extension was created and a Garden Room and Family Room were reclaimed from two stables. The Garden Room is the base for relaxing and taking in stunning views across the gardens, which are a wild life paradise. You are entertained by visiting deer, rabbits, and a wide variety of birds including a resident buzzard. It is a room for chilling out and appreciating the surroundings. The Family Room is the base for chatty meals for fifteen or more, and has hosted many parties with a full marquee and family games like croquet and badminton on the large lawn. The house is alive and at its best when full of people. Serious entertaining needs an efficient and well equipped kitchen for the keen cook, who is
also seasonally busy with the harvest from the gardens. The kitchen is supported by a walk in pantry, where this produce, and extra food can be stored, ready for Christmas visitors. When there is a quiet period, Beryl says she retires to the main section of the house, where the fire in the Victorian sitting room is used for making toast and is a snug winter refuge. It is a perfect spot for an evening in front of the TV. Smaller dinner parties are held in the dining room. This mix of large and more intimate zones results in flexible living accommodation, perfect for family life. In the bedrooms large low windows, enable you to lie in bed and feast your eyes on the stunning garden. The garden is a glorious expanse of lawn, paddock and formal areas, where you can stroll and revel in the beauty around you. You can relish the spring blossom in the orchard, collect the autumn harvest from the soft fruit bushes and trees, or find one of numerous charming corners to just sit and destress. It is a magical play place for children who can collect sticklebacks and tadpoles from the large natural pond, find amazing places to build a den, and learn about the natural world. Beryl states that her favourite place is tending the vegetable plot, and that she is at her happiest when digging there. The time has come to downsize and it is an enormous wrench to leave this much loved home. Beryl will miss the luxury of space in the house and garden, and says she will have to become accustomed to a smaller home. However she takes away very many happy memories.
