Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Oldberrow Court is a Grade II Listed, moated Manor House dating back to the mid-16th Century. This magnificent property has evolved over time into a characterful home of some 4,056 sq ft, accompanied by a versatile selection of outbuildings, gardens and land extending to approximately 15 acres. 

Henley-in-Arden is a picturesque, historic market town located along the A3400 some eight miles from Stratford upon Avon and eight miles from Solihull. It is well placed for quick access on to the M40 at Lapworth Hill (2 miles) which provides links to the M42, M5, M1 and M6. In addition, the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station are all within half an hour's drive. Henley in Arden contains a wide choice of local shops, doctors surgery, Inns and restaurants, together with primary and secondary schooling facilities. Rail and bus services provide commuter links to Stratford upon Avon, Solihull and Birmingham.

LOT 1 - A stunning, Grade II Listed, moated Manor House with extensive ancillary outbuildings set in beautiful landscaped gardens and land amounting to 15 acres. Approx. 4,056 sq ft.

The property is being offered as a superior, lifestyle home in one of the county's most attractive, semi-rural locations, close to the nearby village of Henley-In-Arden.

On entering the property, you are greeted by a remarkable dining hall with flagstone flooring, exposed beams and fireplace. The characterful charm continues through to an enchanting sitting room with grand central fireplace, the home office and separate play room. The kitchen and breakfast room boasts an array of period features, complimented by an oil-fired Aga and sympathetically presented storage options. There is also a beautiful inglenook fireplace and direct access to two outside dining areas, one which leads to the detached Bothy providing a games and cinema room. A large pantry, boot/laundry room and guest WC complete the ground floor accommodation. To the first floor a large landing with library and seating area provides split level access to four handsomely appointed bedrooms, the master benefitting from an impressive vaulted ceiling and part en-suite, principal bathroom, separate shower room and dressing room. There is also a further double bedroom with en-suite to the second floor.

The formal gardens and grounds wrap around the property to all sides and provide several dedicated areas of mature planting and rolling lawns, each enjoying their own remarkable views towards the surrounding moat, grounds and beyond. A key feature of this property is the long sweeping tree-lined drive, flanked by various paddocks and parkland, providing a memorable approach.

Oldberrow Court has the benefit of a variety of outbuildings, which are mainly located within an imposing courtyard at the head of the sweeping drive, providing potential for further re-development into ancillary living accommodation, possible business use or additional equine facilities. These include a substantial two-storey barn and coach house overlooking the tranquil moat which has the advantage of planning in place for residential conversion 09/02229/FUL. There is an attractive three storey dovecote with storage room, separate home office and elevated observatory providing 360-degree views of the grounds and countryside beyond. There are two attached stables/open garages and a canopied parking area for three cars.

Stables & Riding - The luxury stable block contains four Monarch stables, panelled tack room, feed room, rug room and a well-appointed self-contained single level 'Grooms' apartment with spacious room above. The grounds and paddocks to the north and west boundaries provide space for equine use, with further opportunity to ride out along the adjoining bridal paths and lanes which surround the property.


Lot 2 comprises a premium parcel of level pasture land extending to approximately 11 acres, with access provided by an existing driveway which leads to a large gravel parking area. The land has been divided into several enclosed paddocks, all serviced by a large gated barn and Dutch barn. There are two maneges, the principal one measuring an impressive 60m x 25m with leisure ride surface. There is also a recently installed Monarch equestrian 45' diameter imperial five horse walker with Kraiburg rubber floor.

The gated barn benefits from approval for residential conversion, under a Class Q qualification. This facility is offered as an ideal lifestyle purchase for a buyer with a keen interest in the equine field and an appetite for development. Should Lots 1 & 2 be purchased together, this would enhance the potential for further re-development into an equestrian centre, bringing the possibility of future financial gains.
