In finer detail

For the George House this will only be the 2nd time it’s been on the market since it was constructed in the 1960s. So, why does this house make people want to call it home for such a long time? A key reason is that well-known property saying ‘location, location, location’. There are only a handful of roads in Stratford that are classed as ‘Prime’ roads. Rowley Crescent is most certainly one of them, but why is that? Situated just a few minute's walk from town yet unbelievably quiet, you have to go a long way to find another road that offers such a superb blend of convenience and tranquillity. Another reason is the street scene, Rowley Crescent is made up of individually designed character homes, all that have been built in different eras using different architectural styles. The road has a real personality about it.

So what about the property itself? What first strikes you about the property is how imposing the front elevation is and how wide the plot is. It’s rare to find a property this close to town that has a double garage to the side. The wide plot means there’s fantastic extension potential. The symmetry of the house is pleasing to the eye with the balance of windows and position of the front door it has the hallmarks of a regency style property.

Whenever I look at a property I’m always looking at the potential and what the property could be. The George House offers tremendous potential internally and externally. The accommodation is currently arranged over two floors. However, the height and size of the attic provide the perfect space to convert. Likewise, the space over the double garage is another area that could be utilised to create more space should it be required.

The ground floor is made up of; a drawing room, this is an impressive room that is designed with the fireplace being the key focal point. The dual aspect windows make the room flooded with natural light. Off here is a garden room, the perfect spot to sit back and have an afternoon nap. On the opposite side of the property is the dining room. Located at the front of the property and big enough to hold even the largest of diner parties. Adjacent to the dining room is the kitchen breakfast room. If you prefer open plan living then a glance at the floorplan shows how easy it would be to combine the rooms to make a large open plan kitchen/dining room. The kitchen is located at the back of the property so, therefore, offers views over the beautiful garden. There’s enough room to hold a four-seater table. By which is a large picture window the perfect spot to watch the local wildlife while you drink your morning coffee. The remaining accommodation on this level is made up of a downstairs cloakroom, boilers cupboard, and storage cupboard. There is a side passageway that gives you access to both the ‘tradesman’s’ entrance at the front and door to the garden. The front part is where the double garage is located behind this is a very practical utility room. Away from the other rooms and the perfect spot to keep noisy appliances out of earshot.

Moving onto the upstairs. There are four bedrooms in total and a family bathroom. The large landing area is the ideal spot to place a comfy chair and sit down with a good book. The main bedroom is located to the left and is another impressive room, having built-in wardrobes and large en-suite bathroom. The guest bedroom is located on the opposite side with the two remaining bedrooms located at the rear. There is a large airing cupboard and further store cupboard providing excellent space to home linen and towels. Interestingly, you can get the space work harder and make the two back bedrooms larger without the need to extend some rejigging of some internal walls and doors would make a significant difference to the size of the rooms without compromising the space elsewhere. (Please refer to the adapted floorplan).

Gardens and Grounds

Last but by no means least is the wonderful south facing garden, deceptive in size and very private given its central location. It’s a little oasis that has been created using mature plants and hedging. In some parts, the borders are around 10 feet deep so if a larger lawn area is preferred it would be very simple to adapt.

The nearer you get to town the more difficult it is to find properties with ample parking. Not in the case of the George House. Not only do you have the double garage with electric roll door you also have an extensive block paved drive which can hold enough cars for even the largest of families.

The George House, truly is a unique property that offers tremendous potential and is perfectly placed not just for town but also for access to the M40. Coming back onto the market for the first time in over thirty years, I believe that whoever has the privilege of being the next owner will keep this fine home for decades to come. This really could be a once in a lifetime opportunity, come and take a look and judge for yourself.
