HONINGTON

is a most attractive and sought-after South Warwickshire village set amidst delightful open countryside, near the North Cotswolds, only two miles from the thriving former market town of Shipston on Stour which offers a wide range of shopping, social and recreational amenities. The village, which is designated a conservation area, is approached over a fine 17th century stone bridge across the River Stour, and includes a variety of mainly stone built period houses and cottages set behind a village Green together with historic Honington Hall, set in attractive parkland, and a lovely village church. Larger centres located within easy reach include Stratford upon Avon (10 miles), Warwick (17 miles), Banbury (15 miles), Moreton-in-Marsh (9 miles) and Evesham (21 miles).

LAST COTTAGE

The Utility Room benefits from tiled flooring with a further laminated base cupboard units incorporating a stainless steel sink, plumbing for a washing machine and housing the Grant oil fired central heating boiler. Leading off is a very well appointed Shower Room with tiled floor incorporating underfloor heating, part tiled walls and containing a walk-in shower with twin thermostatic shower heads, vanity washbasin, bidet and WC. The Excellent Studio Room has separate access to the gardens at side and could be used as a further living room or ground floor double bedroom as required.

On the first floor

A staircase from the sitting/dining room rises to a First Floor Landing having a built-in heated airing cupboard with an un-vented cylinder, and a ceiling hatch with ladder to the loft space. Opening off are Three Charming Double Bedrooms and the family Bathroom which contains a bath, washbasin and WC.

Outside

The property is approached from the lane over a long, sweeping gravelled driveway terminating in a spacious parking are in front of the house. The delightful, mature gardens extend principally to the south and west side of the property and provide a lovely sylvan setting. They include a paved stone patio and wall, adjoining timber summer house, two small lawns, well stocked flower borders, a vegetable garden with two timber sheds, a variety of mature evergreen and deciduous trees including conifers, a belt of established yew trees to the lane, oak and lime trees, mature shrubbery and privet/yew hedges, etc.

I am writing to put on record, our appreciation for the fantastic service you have given us in my son’s purchase of his first property which completed recently, painlessly with the minimum of fuss.

The initial negotiations were carried out efficiently and quickly and special mention must go to Katie and Zoe, who I saw regularly to monitor and push forward the sale, who were just wonderful and a great advertisement for your firm. It’s always nice to walk in to a big smile and warm welcome.

Thank you to everyone for enabling him to buy his first property so easily and without stress.

From the initial valuation meeting through to securing the exchange on our property, the level of service received from the team has been exceptional.

The team are experienced, professional, courteous and committed to deliver results.

Although all the Leamington team were very good, it was the hard work of Norma which stands out. She drove the process forward from SSTC to exchange and managed to keep the chain together despite competing timescales and other issues. She also kept us fully updated along the way. Normas involvement in the sale certainly highlighted why it is often a false economy to sell with these online only agents!

We wanted to write to thank you Gilly for your invaluable help in the sale of our house.  

You were tireless, as was the rest of your team, in making sure that everything went as smoothly as possible. Your liaison with the purchasers meant that we were kept informed of all developments despite the fact that we were out of the country for much of the time. I must also compliment Sheldon Bosley for the excellent marketing of the house and your advice in setting a realistic guide price which enabled us to realise a most satisfactory sale price.

We will not hesitate to recommend you to to others.

May I say how very much I appreciate all your help and the way in which you, and the other folks at Sheldon Bosley, take care of things. Years ago, when I bought the house (we are talking 1983), I felt that having someone manage the property, especially when renters might be involved, would be a good idea, and so it has proved to be.

I would not hesitate to recommend Sheldon Bosley Knight to anyone. I write to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the work done on my behalf by members of the Leamington office in relation to the recent sale of my home.        

I would particularly like to say a huge thank you to Andrew James. From the moment that I enquired about putting my house on the market, he has been nothing short of exceptional.

We had already found a house that we wanted to buy, and so it was important that my property went onto the market without delay and sold quickly. Andrew was fantastic in that respect; the house was on Rightmove within a couple of days of my instruction and he then arranged somewhere in the region of 20 viewings a week later. He priced the property brilliantly, leading to my receiving six offers, all in excess of the asking price.

He was calm, conscientious and diligent throughout the whole process. Communication with me was always excellent and timely.

I should also say that the other members of staff from the Leamington office were also always helpful and supportive.

I have used the various services provided for over forty years. As a farmer I have gradually found it increasingly onerous and time–consuming to deal with the plethora of paperwork produced by the agricultural directorate in Brussels and its UK implementing agent, DEFRA. I have therefore contracted this work out to you for the last eight years or so.

My point of contact for the last five years has been Laura Gaydon; I cannot speak highly enough of the service she has given me. She has been meticulously accurate in completing my Single Payment Scheme (now the Basic Payment Scheme) forms, always in good time and in good order, which is a great relief for me; in spite of the maddening complexity of the paperwork we have never had forms returned or rejected. Laura has also been responsible for ensuring that my Higher Level Stewardship commitments are properly met and reminding me of, and helping me with, the other form-filling obligations the our masters in Brussels impose on us.

Beyond all this Laura and her colleagues were responsible for drawing up the plans and application forms for a new grain store which was completed in the summer of 2014.

On a personal note it is a pleasure to work with Laura; she is efficient without being remotely bossy and has the invaluable gift of correcting my errors without a hint of reproach. I have no hesitation in warmly recommending Laura and by the same token Sheldon Bosley; throughout our long association I have always found them courteous and efficient and I look forward to maintaining this happy relationship in the future.
