An attractive and deceptively spacious three bedroom period barn conversion forming part of a small character courtyard development set in open countryside with double garage and easily managed gardens
ETTINGTON is a popular South Warwickshire village situated in a very attractive area of rolling countryside just west of the historic Fosse Way. The village enjoys an excellent general store, the renowned Chequers Inn, and well regarded junior school, whilst Stratford upon Avon, offering a comprehensive range of cultural, shopping, social and recreational amenities, is approximately 5 miles distant. Also, readily accessible to the village, are the towns of Shipston on Stour (5 miles), Warwick (11 miles), Leamington Spa (13 miles) and Banbury (14 miles). The M40 at both Warwick and Gaydon can be reached in 20 minutes.
2 DRYBANK FARM Forms part of a select courtyard development of just four, individual, brick-built period barn conversions located off the historic Fosse Way, about one mile from Ettington village, and surrounded by delightful rolling Warwickshire countryside. Converted in about 1997, the property is a deceptively spacious country home of considerable charm and character which benefits from well proportioned accommodation throughout (over 1,900 sq ft), high ceilings to the ground floor, some original exposed timbers to the first floor, double glazed windows and LPG central heating – and scope for further refurbishment to suit a purchaser’s preferences. There are also attractive, easily managed gardens on three sides and an excellent double garage with ample parking.
On the ground floor A wide oak front door opens to the Spacious, Split Level Reception Hall with fitted book-shelving, an under-stairs storage cupboard and a Fitted Cloakroom containing a washbasin and WC. The Attractive “L” Shaped Drawing Room enjoys picture windows and a pair of French doors opening to the rear garden, a handsome stained wood fireplace surround having a marble inset, stone hearth and incorporating an LPG coal effect living flame fire. There is a Large Kitchen/Breakfast Room overlooking the side garden, with vinyl flooring and containing a range of oak fronted wall and floor cupboard units with laminated worktops and including a stainless steel one-and-a-half bowl sink, plumbing for a dishwasher, fitted Creda electric double oven and ceramic hob and a fitted heated linen cupboard. The adjoining Utility Room has a part glazed door to the rear garden, vinyl flooring, a stainless steel sink unit, plumbing for a washing machine and an Ideal Logic LPG combi central heating boiler.
On the first floor A staircase from the reception hall rises to a Central Landing with a useful built-in linen cupboard. There are Three Charming Double Bedrooms, two having built-in wardrobes, whilst the master bedroom enjoys a delightful outlook over open farmland to the rear and has an En-Suite Bathroom with bath, washbasin and WC. The Family Bathroom contains a bath with shower attachment, bidet, vanity washbasin and WC.
