A period home with the key to making the most of all that Stratford-upon-Avon has to offer has come on the market with a guide price of £725,000.
Red Walls, 10 Rowley Crescent, with easy access to the historic town centre, is a dream house for the discerning culture vulture.
Built in 1904, with plenty of parking, double garage and large garden, it has it all … yet within a gentle stroll of the internationally renowned amenities.
Tom Dennes, head of Bigwood Country Homes, said: “It is very rare to find this combination close to town, and it is a well presented property with high ceilings and plenty of light. There is further potential to convert the very large loft to provide additional living accommodation.
“Stratford has an excellent selection of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities, is home to the recently extensively refurbished Royal Shakespeare Theatre, and there is an active cultural scene with regular concerts and events in the Civic Hall.
“For anyone wanting to take advantage of all this, particularly arts lovers, it would be hard to find an equivalent property so central with everything on your doorstep and no need to worry about parking as the gravelled drive and double garage means plenty of cars can be accommodated, a real benefit.”
The outstanding four-bedroom semi-detached property is set in 0.3 acres. It was originally built as one house and later divided in two.
Many period features have been retained including high ceilings, bay windows, fanned steps to both the front and back doors, ceiling coving and roses, wood panelled and partly glazed doors and intricate door furniture.
The rooms throughout are well proportioned with a large entrance hall entered through a recently added glazed porch. The drawing room and dining room next door are linked by a pair of glazed doors and are very elegant. Both rooms overlook the south facing garden to the rear.
On the first floor is a deep landing currently used as an additional sitting area. The kitchen breakfast room is a good size and there is a flight of steps down to a useful cellar.
All four bedrooms are doubles, the master bedroom being ensuite, with the fourth located on the second floor. Outside the family bathroom is a hatch with drop down ladder giving access to an enormous partly boarded loft which could be adapted to provide additional rooms.
The garden is a very special feature with a deep paved terrace accessed from the dining room steps leading down onto an expanse of lawn. There are a variety of flower and shrub borders with mature hedgerows forming the boundaries, mature trees, composting area, sheds and a further “secret” partly-walled garden currently used as a vegetable patch with greenhouse.
“This is a wonderful quiet and private garden,” said Mr Dennes.
“There is good access to Birmingham to the north and London to the south. Also there are excellent schools in the town and surrounding area including St Benedict’s Primary School around the corner, Stratford Prep School, Stratford Grammar School for Girls in Shottery, King Edward VI Grammar School for boys and a variety of other excellent prep and public schools in Warwick, Leamington and Alcester.”Back to top
