In finer detail
A most handsome Edwardian Semi-detached property located in this most aspirational of addresses right in the heart of Stratford upon Avon. This stunning home is situated on the town end of this quiet and tree-lined leafy road and is, therefore, most conveniently positioned for all of the cultural, retail, and many eateries that historic Stratford-upon-Avon has to offer. In addition, the beautiful Welcombe Hills are on your doorstep, therefore giving the ease and convenience of town centre living with the option of some lovely country walks nearby. You have to go a long way to find another road that offers such a superb blend of convenience and tranquillity. Maidenhead Road 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.

Homes very rarely come onto the open market here and certainly very few that occupy a plot (approximately 0.4 acres) of this size this close to town. The nature of the plot means there is fantastic potential to extend the property to both the side and rear subject to the usual consents.

On approaching this grand home you really appreciate not just the scale of the home but also the plot which can only be appreciated only on closer inspection. As you enter through the large front door the grand reception hall greets you. The hall has a lovely staircase rising up to the first floor and allows access to the rest of the ground floor.

First on the left is the formal dining room, this is a lovely size room, square-ish in proportions the room is blessed with period features, including a large walk-in bay window which helps flood the room with natural light, high ceilings, and an imposing fireplace, this really is the perfect room to enjoy a formal dining party with friends and family. Next along is the formal sitting room, again another well-proportioned room, which also benefits from the same period features as the dining room. The high ceilings give great volume to the room. This time a large square walk-in bay window one of the best features this handsome home offers. Across the hall is the large open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room. As a must in modern living, space is cleverly zoned into areas giving great clarity of how you can get the most out of the room. On the left-hand side is a morning/sitting room, the ideal space to sit back and relax and enjoy views over the garden. The room then naturally flows into the dining section, the perfect spot for a more informal catch-up with friends in the summer, you can open the French doors to help blend the inside and outside spaces together. The kitchen is located at the far end and has plenty of cupboard space as well as a range of integrated appliances.

The stairs rise to a half landing which has a useful guest W.C. To the first floor is a light and airy landing, off which are three excellent double bedrooms again with high ceilings and a family bathroom. Of special note is the master bedroom which duplicates the size and feel of the dining room as is directly above it. The master bedroom offers a real sense of grand living with its many period features and large walk-in bay window. The three remaining bedrooms are excellent double rooms all of which feature period fireplaces. Originally there were five bedrooms on this level, however, the current owners decided to enlarge the small bathroom by combining the 5th bedroom and the bathroom together. This has now created a beautiful four-piece bathroom that perfectly blends modern and traditional styles together. There is now a free-standing roll-top bath with claw feet and a large walk-in shower.

The second-floor houses the remaining very large bedroom and en-suite. It would be very easy to adapt this room to the master suite as there is enough space to create a dressing room within the footprint.

Gardens & Grounds

Without a doubt, a significant feature of this fine home is the plot. Measuring approximately 0.4-acre front to back with the rear garden being just shy of 200 feet. Having space, maturity, privacy, and probably most important of all, the correct aspect for the sun – west. When you bear in mind how close to town you are you soon realise that this really is something special. There is an extensive raised decking area an ideal place to unwind after a hard week. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a wide range of mature trees and hedges. There is a wide gravel path that leads to the bottom. This is a garden that you imagine coming to life in the summer whether that be with a garden party with friends and family or having a game of cricket this space has the potential to cater to all needs. To the front behind a five bar gate is a large gravel drive providing parking for 5/6 cars comfortably.
