A superbly renovated character 18th century period three bedroom coach house with carport and courtyard, and set in a quiet backwater close to the town centre

SHIPSTON ON STOUR  is an old market town situated in the southern tip of Warwickshire in an area of undulating farmland close by the Cotswold Hills along the Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire borders. It provides the local shopping centre for many surrounding villages and has a predominantly Georgian High Street which benefits from being away from through traffic. The town also has both a Primary and Secondary School, medical centre and cottage hospital, library and several sports clubs. The main centres for the area are Stratford upon Avon (11 miles), Banbury (14 miles), Warwick (17 miles), Leamington Spa (18 miles). There is a mainline rail service to Oxford and London Paddington from the Cotswold town of Moreton in Marsh (7 miles).

THE LOFT  Is a charming, period, link-detached, former coach house, probably originally built in the 18th century as stables for the near-by former Red Lion Inn, but imaginatively converted in the 1960’s into an attractive town cottage - set in a quiet “backwater” off Church Street, within the conservation area, and a short walk from the town centre. The property has been recently, extensively modernised and refurbished to a high standard - but without the loss of it’s unique charm and character including many original exposed timbers. It features deceptive and very well appointed accommodation in an “upside-down” configuration with mainly cottage style replacement double glazed windows, an efficient electric wet central heating system with under-floor heating to part of the ground floor, a luxury bathroom and a well appointed kitchen. Together with three double ground floor bedrooms and a lovely first floor open-plan living area, it particularly benefits from a private courtyard to the front with parking space, open carport and stairs up to a feature roof terrace enjoying a delightful outlook. Ideally suited to a discerning purchaser seeking a centrally located, individual character home with ease of management - viewing is highly recommended.

On the Ground Floor  A Loggia Porch and front door opens to the Welcoming Reception Hall having limestone flooring with under-floor heating, painted panelled walls and a feature steel spiral staircase rising to the first floor. Opening off the hall are Three Attractive Double Bedrooms and a Luxury Bathroom with limestone flooring and under-floor heating, containing a bath in tiled surround with shower attachment, a bespoke washbasin on stand and WC.

On the First Floor  The superb, open plan, Living/Dining/Kitchen enjoys a semi-vaulted ceiling with original exposed timbers, a fitted dresser base, and a triple aspect with a stable door at front leading to the Balcony Patio Roof Terrace. The Kitchen Area has wood effect vinyl flooring and includes an extensive range of contemporary style base cabinets which incorporate a stainless steel one-and-a-half bowl sink, an integral dishwasher, electric double oven and ceramic electric hob. Opening off is a Utility Area with worktop, plumbing for a washing machine and cupboard housing the electric, hot water central heating boiler. There is also a Fitted Cloakroom with small hand basin and WC.

Outside  The property is approached from Church Street over a shared private drive with a five bar timber entrance gate opening to an Attractive, Part Walled and Gravelled Courtyard, with an established lime tree, and where there is parking for one car and access to the Attached Car Port with Store.

Note: The adjoining property has the right of vehicular access across the courtyard to the garage which is attached to the car port.
