Full description

A spacious character four bedroom detached village house in a lovely setting adjoining the village green and duck pond

Idlicote - Is a charming South Warwickshire hamlet of cottages and houses set amidst delightful rolling countryside approximately 3 miles from the market town of Shipston on Stour and 10 miles from Stratford upon Avon - both offering a wide range of amenities. In an elevated position, the village enjoys a lovely duck pond, an ancient church and fine views across the adjoining farmland. There are mainline train services to London from both Banbury (14 miles) and Moreton in Marsh (8 miles), whilst the M40 (J12) is about 10 miles distant.

The Old Forge - Occupies an idyllic position in the centre of this quiet and unspoilt village, set back behind a green with a lovely outlook over the delightful village duck pond to the front, whilst benefitting from elevated countryside views to the rear. Despite its period appearance, this detached village house was actually brick built in 2001 from quality reclaimed materials and benefits from mainly double glazed windows, exposed timbers to some rooms, cottage style doors and tiled floors to part of the ground floor. The deceptive and flexible accommodation, extending to almost 2,300 Sq. Ft., enjoys full oil fired central heating and a most attractive outlook from many rooms.

On The Ground Floor - A part glazed front door opens to a large reception hall with built in storage cupboards and a cloaks cupboard housing the Worcester oil fired central heating boiler. The well fitted kitchen/breakfast room enjoys a delightful outlook over the village pond and includes a good range of cream wall and floor cupboard units with hardwood worktops incorporating a Villeroy & Boch enamel sink, Neff dishwasher and a two oven Aga in a brick recess. Opening off is the attractive dining/conservatory with windows on three sides and door to the garden. The spacious drawing room features picture windows overlooking the duck pond to the front together with a semi-vaulted ceiling and a handsome open fireplace with heavy beam over.

Also leading from the hall is a useful study or occasional bedroom and a utility room with fitted cupboard units incorporating a stainless steel sink and plumbing for a washing machine. There is a ground floor double bedroom or family room with built-in wardrobes, and an adjoining family bathroom containing a bath, washbasin, WC and tiled shower cubicle.

On The First Floor - A staircase from the hall leads up to a central landing with a useful fitted cloakroom incorporating a washbasin and WC. The master bedroom suite provides an attractive double bedroom with an en-suite shower room containing a shower cubicle, washbasin and WC. There are two further double bedrooms, one currently used as a dressing room.

Outside - The property benefits from a detached double open fronted garage with power connected, useful loft storage over and a gravelled parking area to the front, approached from the lane through a pair of five bar gates. The gardens, extending on two sides of the property and mainly enclosed by picket fencing, provide a delightful setting and include a paved terrace, lawn with well stocked flower borders, gravelled pathways with further herbaceous borders and a useful timber Garden Shed. The property is set back behind a village green to the front with delightful views to the village duck pond.
