Every once in a while you’re asked to look at a property that makes you go ‘wow’. Regency Cottage certainly made me go ‘wow’ when I first saw it. So, what was it about this particular property that made such an impression? Firstly, we all know that well-known mantra in property ‘location, location, location’. Regency Cottage is what I call hidden in plain sight. In the vendor's own words the property is ‘convenient yet secluded’. Located just 0.3 miles from the town centre you probably will have passed this property many times without even knowing it existed and in there lies part of its charm.

But what else makes it so special? For all of Stratford’s rich history, there aren’t that many high calibre, period town centre homes of this size even less that offer private off-road parking. This fine home combines period styling with modern conveniences perfectly. As you’d expect from a property of this age and beauty, it’s grade II listed. Architecturally it suits the eye having the central door and charming bay windows either side.

Internally you enter the property via the central hall, this acts as the hub of the home giving access to the ground floor rooms. To the right is a delightful sitting room which is bathed in light thanks to the large bay with sash windows and shutters. On the opposite side is the second sitting room, another charming room also blessed with the bay window, this room also benefits from a wood-burning stove. You can imagine relaxing in front of the fire with a good book. To the rear is a lovely extended open plan kitchen/dining room. The kitchen is finished in a contemporary style with modern light coloured units and granite worktops over. The return worktop acts as a visual break to the dining area. This is a beautiful spot to sit and entertain. The oak framed glass box adds a modern twist and the large roof lanterns ensure this space is flooded with natural light come rain or shine. Off the kitchen is an inner hall which doubles up as a study/library. From here you have the modern conveniences mentioned earlier with useful utility room allowing you to keep noisy appliances out of earshot and downstairs cloakroom. It has to be said that it is very unusual to find these spaces in a property of this era. The modern conveniences continue as you move upstairs, where you find four bedrooms, all of which can hold a double bed, and three of which benefit from built-in wardrobes. The ceiling height is of special note this really adds to the feeling of space in each room. The master bedroom is located at the front and like downstairs boasts the walk-in bay windows. There is a refitted en-suite shower room again an unusual find in a property of this age. The guest bedroom sits alongside the main room at the front of the property and also boasts the walk-in bay window. To the rear is a generous refitted three-piece bathroom with shower over.

Undoubtedly a vital feature of the property is the outside space, with gardens to the front and side you have a variety of spots where you can sit back and relax in private. The side courtyard is located off the kitchen. This is a great place to sip your coffee and contemplate the day ahead. The main garden sits in front of the property. Thanks to the lower level of the garden and the mature hedging the space is entirely private, it's easy to forget just how close you are to the town centre. The gardens are wonderfully mature, the space is mainly laid to lawn with well-stocked borders. Often a barrier for period properties this close to town is the lack of parking. Not so with this property, there’s off-road parking for 1 car.

However, if more parking is desired you could move the shed to another part of the garden which would then create at least one, possibly two more parking spaces.
