    About this property

    • Situated in the heart of the village, Allersmead House offers light and airy rooms and a versatile layout along with excellent secondary accommodation in the form of a studio flat and a detached cottage. The house is entered via a welcoming reception hall which leads to a well-proportioned sitting room with wood burning stove. Glazed double doors open into a triple aspect family room with square bay window and built-in seating. A second set of glazed doors connects the sitting room to the conservatory. The country-style kitchen/dining room connects to the conservatory and the hall and is fitted with an excellent range of cabinets as well as an island unit. There is plenty of space for a good sized table and chairs. A door from the kitchen/ dining room leads to a utility room and onwards to a kitchen/sitting room, bedroom and shower room. This area of the house can be isolated to create a self-contained wing with independent access.

      A staircase from the entrance hall rises to the first floor bedroom accommodation. The principal bedroom has a range of fitted cupboards and an en suite bathroom. Bedroom two benefits from an en suite shower room. Bedrooms three and four have access to a family shower room.

      Orchard Cottage is a detached red brick cottage situated at the far end of the garden. The cottage comprises an open plan kitchen/sitting room with door to garden terrace. There is a ground floor bedroom with en suite shower room and a first floor bedroom with access to a cloakroom. There is off road parking for two cars.

      The carport/flat/studio is an attractive timber framed building providing a studio, office and single bay car port on the ground floor and a self-contained flat with kitchen and shower room on the first floor. To the rear of the building is a secluded gravelled patio.

      The property is approached via timber gates and a tarmac drive which leads past the principal house, terminating just before reaching Orchard Cottage. The gardens and grounds are bordered by mature hedging and are principally laid to lawn with well-stocked borders and specimen trees. A vegetable garden lies close to the house with a shed, greenhouse, raised beds and parking. Paved terracing lies along the north-east elevation providing several options for al fresco dining with views over the garden.

      The property will appeal to a broad audience of buyers and in particular those looking for a family house enjoying a rural position yet within comfortable driving distance of Stratford-upon-Avon. The range of accommodation on offer will be especially appealing to buyers who work from home as well as those wishing to generate additional income.
