Welcome to a most handsome Edwardian detached property located in the heart of Stratford upon Avon, one of the most aspirational addresses in town.

Not only is the property conveniently positioned for all of the cultural, retail, and dining experiences that historic Stratford-upon-Avon has to offer, but the beautiful Welcombe Hills are also just a stone’s throw away. This means you can enjoy the convenience of town centre living and have the option of some lovely country walks nearby.

Maidenhead Road is renowned for its individually designed character homes, built in different eras and architectural styles, giving the road a unique personality. And this home is no exception! It’s rare to find homes so close to the town centre that occupy such generous plots approaching 0.20 of an acre. The rear west-facing garden is a real showstopper, measuring approximately 100 feet, and offers the perfect space for hosting garden parties, outdoor games, or simply lounging in the sun. With such a large plot, the property offers fantastic potential to extend to both the side and rear, subject to the usual consents.

Approaching this grand home, you can’t help but appreciate the imposing scale of the property and its expansive plot, which can only be fully appreciated up close. As you enter through the large front door, the grand reception hall greets you with a lovely staircase rising to the first floor and allows access to the rest of the ground floor. The first room on the left is the formal dining room, which boasts period features, including a large walk-in bay window that floods the room with natural light, high ceilings, and an imposing fireplace. It’s the perfect room to enjoy a formal dining party with friends and family.

Next along is the formal sitting room, another well-proportioned room, which also benefits from the same period features as the dining room, including high ceilings, log burning stove the perfect place to kick back and relax in front of the dancing flames after a long day winters day and a large walk-in bay window with a door leading out to the garden. Across the hall is the large open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, cleverly zoned into areas that give great clarity on how you can make the most of the space. The handmade Shaker-style units are finished with a hand-painted effect, giving you the freedom to change the colour scheme to suit your taste. The first part of the room is where the original kitchen would have been before the property was extended. This practical part offers ample space for appliances, including a double and single Aga, and an island unit finished with a Granite worktop, the perfect spot to catch up with friends over a drink or two.

The room naturally flows into the open plan dining/living space, the ideal place to sit back and relax, with French doors that blend the inside and outside spaces together, giving you lovely views over the garden. The property ticks all the practical boxes, with a useful utility room allowing you to keep noisy appliances out of earshot, and a single chamber cellar, perfect for storing your wine collection. The remaining accommodation on this level comprises a downstairs cloakroom and a study, which is ideal if you work from home.

To first floor are four excellent double bedrooms again with high ceilings, dressing room and shower room. The main bedroom is located to the front and is an impressive room, having high ceilings and a walk-in bay window. The guest bedroom is located at the rear, this is another lovely room with high ceilings, and a walk-in bay window giving charming views over the gardens. The third bedroom is also a good-sized double with built in wardrobes a room that also offers views over the garden. The fourth bedroom is sandwiched between the main and the guest bedroom. So, as such could be converted to be used to create an en-suite to either of these rooms. If used to service the main bedroom you could then create a ‘master suite’ which would boast a dressing room and en-suite.

To the second floor are two further double bedrooms, another alternative could be to adapt the space to create this as your master suite having space for dressing room, large en-suite and impressive bedroom.

Ah, the pièce de résistance - the garden! Prepare to be blown away by the sheer amount of space, privacy, and maturity this garden has to offer.

As you take it all in, it’s hard to believe you’re still within close proximity to the town - this is truly something special.

Picture this: an extensive patio that screams relaxation, the perfect spot to unwind after a long week. The patio stretches around the side of the property, with enough space for a large garden shed - talk about practicality! The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with an impressive variety of mature trees and hedges adding a touch of character to the space. The current owners even secured planning permission for a large single garage at the bottom of the garden - the footings are already laid, so all you need is to submit a new planning application if a garage is on your wishlist.

Gardens & Grounds
But let’s get to the good stuff - this is the kind of garden that comes alive in the summer. Whether you’re throwing a garden party with friends and family or playing games, this space has got you covered.
