The private landscaped grounds begin at the entrance from Warwick Road, boasting a long, advancing tree-lined driveway to The Hill Mansion.
Surrounding the driveway and property is approximately 4.5 acres of landscaped lawn, and some mature trees beautifully frame the Mansion.
The grounds, which were originally created in the Imperial period, retain evidence of 19th century layout and planting and at one time included a
pleasure ground, kitchen garden, walks and a maze.
Also available by separate negotiation, is mature woodland and a spinney, primarily to the north easterly elevation which provide effective screening to
the Mansion and help preserve its privacy.
Amongst the grounds, and close to the Mansion, is a block of five garages with a further spinney to the rear. We see this area as a good development
opportunity subject to planning.
Stratford is an historic market town in the heart of Warwickshire. Standing proudly on the banks of the River Avon, Stratford is perhaps best known as being the home of the country’s greatest poet and playwright, William Shakespeare. The town has embraced its famous son with statues, the preservation of his house at New Place, his tomb in Holy Trinity Church and of course the iconic Royal Shakespeare Theatre, home to the Royal
Shakespeare Company and which receives more than 2.5million visitors a year.
As well as the theatre and its other cultural connections, Stratford has a thriving town centre and boasts a wide range of shops, restaurants, cafes and businesses. There is also a cinema, nightclubs and bars, The Butterfly Farm, the Big Wheel and the MAD Museum on Henley Street.
The town and surrounding villages are popular with all age groups when it comes to living in the area with a range of property types, styles and prices.
For families, Stratford has an excellent selection of schools, both state and private and for sporty types there is a racecourse, a well-renowned golf course next to The Hill Mansion as well as thriving rugby, football and cricket clubs.
With the River Avon and the beautiful countryside right on Stratford’s doorstep, it is also extremely well connected with roads leading out to the Cotswolds, the M5 and M40 giving access to all corners of the country. There are also two train stations with regular, direct services to Birmingham and London.

A ground floor two-bedroom apartment with entrance hall, kitchen, an opulent living/dining room that we assume was the principle drawing room of the Mansion, sizable bedroom with large bay window and en-suite bathroom, bedroom two and a shower room. EPC rating D.
A previous garage conversion, now comprising a ground floor two-bedroom apartment with entrance porch, entrance hall, living room, conservatory, kitchen, two bedrooms and a shower room. We acknowledge this apartment trails behind the standards of the other four, and therefore see this apartment as a good re-development opportunity subject to planning. EPC rating E.
Additional elements of The Hill Mansions include a vast cellar comprising five separate chambers, previously used as storage for each apartment and which contain the meters for each.
Further floor space is found in the unused and unconverted loft area. Access to the loft is found on the first-floor shared landing for Apartments 3 and 4 with separate stairs leading to the additional space.
The spinney and woodland will be covenanted so it remains an effective screen and should be used for woodland amenity use only. The Hill Mansion and the grounds will be covenanted to residential use only.
In planning terms, we assume there are issues in reverting the building to a single mansion house, primarily in relation to the loss of residential property units which has been generally resisted by local planning authorities.
