Description

With the main parts of the house dating back to 1780, this former schoolhouse is now a beautiful and well maintained Grade II listed family home. With accommodation over three floors this charming home boasts a number of period features and offers traditional living accommodation. Entering the property via a porch, the front door leads into a spacious and airy drawing room with an inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove. This is an ideal entertaining area and central hub of the house. To the left of the drawing room there is a cosy sitting room with bespoke fitted bookshelves and cupboards, bespoke Cotswold Stone fireplace and wood burning stove. To the right of the drawing room is a large kitchen/breakfast room and a utility room, to the rear is a shower room. The kitchen is furnished with antique pine dressers and cupboards as well as fitted base and wall units and a Rayburn stove. The wide staircase (a notable feature of this type of Cotswold house) leads up from the drawing room to the first and second floors. On the first floor there is a double aspect master bedroom with fireplace and en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms and family bathroom. On the second floor there are three further bedrooms one of which is located via its own personal staircase. Externally the property faces onto a large village green.

There is gravelled parking area for several cars accessed via a gate at the side of the plot.

Location

The twin villages of Cherington and Stourton sit on the northern tip of the Cotswold hills, 4 miles south-east of the historic market town of Shipston on Stour. Both villages remain beautifully unspoilt - surrounded by rolling Warwickshire countryside, they predominantly consist of attractive cottages built from local limestone and brick. Apart from Shipston on Stour, the villages are within easy travelling distance of Stratford upon Avon (15 miles), Banbury (11 miles) and Moreton in Marsh (7 miles) which offer a variety of shopping, recreational and leisure facilities. The train station at Moreton in Marsh provides a direct line between Worcester and London Paddington (via Oxford), and the Shipston Link offers a regular bus service to Shipston, Banbury and Chipping Norton. The villages are home to a pretty 13th Century church, thriving public house, large new village hall and well-equipped children’s playground. The Cotswold Distillery is located on the edge of Stourton, producing award winning Cotswold Gin among other spirits using locally grown raw ingredients. Both Cherington & Stourton fall within the priority catchment area for Brailes C of E Primary School, and Shipston High School for secondary education.
