An excellent individual modern five bedroom chalet style family residence set in delightful gardens on the edge of this popular South Warwickshire village and with valuable range of outbuildings.
HALFORD is set in the southern tip of Warwickshire only about 6 miles from the Gloucestershire border and the lovely Cotswold Hills. It is situated on the Fosse Way with an old bridge across the River Stour and enjoys some fine old stone built properties - especially about the Church and Manor House. The village also has the benefit of a Garage with shop and Public House - The Halford Bridge. The nearest town is Shipston on Stour, which is less than 4 miles away, while the well-known centre of Stratford upon Avon is about 8 miles distant. Other local towns are: Warwick (13 miles); Leamington Spa (15 miles); Banbury (15 miles); Coventry (21 miles) and Birmingham (29 miles). There is a rail service to London from Moreton in Marsh (10 miles) and the M40 has junctions at Warwick, Gaydon (10 miles) and Banbury.
WHITEGATE Is prominently situated off the Fosse Way (A429), on the northern periphery of Halford Village, adjoining open farmland. Originally built in 1990, the property is a deceptively spacious, modern, individual, link-detached, chalet style family residence of considerable charm and character, and which is set in attractive landscaped gardens, together with a good range of out-offices. The property enjoys flexible and well appointed accommodation of over 2,900 sq ft, arranged over two floors, offering scope for further modernisation, but benefitting from attractive stained wood, cottage style doors, ornamental exposed ceiling beams and brick fireplaces to the principal rooms, full double glazing and oil fired central heating.
On the ground floor A part glazed front door opens to an Enclosed Entrance Vestibule, with a quarry tiled floor and a pair of glazed inner doors to an Attractive Dining Hall with exposed ceiling beams and a brick fireplace incorporating a log burning stove. A further pair of glazed doors lead to the Garden Room having a semi vaulted ceiling, picture windows and glazed doors to the rear garden. There is a Charming Sitting Room having exposed ceiling timbers and brick wall, fitted book shelving, together with a feature brick inglenook fireplace with a metal canopy and heavy beam over.
The Fitted Kitchen/Breakfast Room has quarry tiled flooring and contains a range of antique pine fronted wall and floor cabinets with laminated worktops incorporating a one-and-a-half bowl sink, space for a slot-in oven and dishwasher, and walk-in pantry cupboard. The adjoining Utility Room/Rear Entrance Hall has a stable door to the courtyard, quarry tiled floor, a stainless steel sink unit and plumbing/recess for a washing machine, a built-in cloaks cupboard and Fitted Cloakroom leading off containing a washbasin and WC.
Leading from a Side Hall, with a built-in cloaks cupboard and heated airing cupboard, are Two Double Bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, one having an En-Suite Shower Room which includes a tiled shower cubicle, vanity washbasin with cupboard under and WC. There is also a further Shower/Fitted Cloakroom containing a shower cubicle, vanity washbasin with cupboard, and WC.
On the first floor A staircase from the rear hall rises to a Spacious Landing/Sitting Area, opening from which is a Study/Bedroom with built-in wardrobe, vanity washbasin and eaves storage cupboards, and Bedroom Three with fitted wardrobe. Leading off a Side Landing, with a built-in airing cupboard, is a Fourth Double Bedroom having built-in wardrobes and eaves storage cupboards together with an En-Suite Shower Room having a tiled shower cubicle, vanity washbasin and WC. The Bathroom contains a bath in tiled surround with an electric shower over, washbasin, bidet and WC.

There is also an integral Double Garage with an electric, remote controlled, roller shutter garage door and double timber doors to the rear garden. Adjoining is a further Single Garage/Implement Store, having a pair of timber garage doors, and an open tread staircase leading up to an Excellent Loft Storage Room/Studio. Adjacent to the garaging are Three Outside WC’s.
Located across the rear courtyard is a substantial, modern, Brooker built, 3 bay, steel framed, Agricultural Barn, which undoubtedly enjoys potential for conversion to an additional annexe or holiday let, subject to planning consent, if required.
The Attractive Gardens and Grounds provide a delightful setting for the property. A sweeping gravelled driveway from the Fosse Way, flanked by lawns, leads to a spacious parking area at the front of the house. A five bar gate opens to a gravelled and concrete paved Rear Courtyard, with access to the barn and garaging, adjoining which is a productive vegetable garden and small Greenhouse. The Walled Rear Garden enjoys a south-westerly aspect and includes a wide paved sun terrace, lawn and well stocked herbaceous borders, etc.
