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 London from the Cotswold town of Moreton in Marsh (7 miles).

VICTORIA COTTAGE  Enjoys a convenient position in Old Road, on the edge of the Conservation Area, and within an easy walk of the town centre and all amenities. Probably originally dating from the late 19th century, the property is an attractive, tastefully modernised and refurbished, character, end of terrace, period town cottage which features whitewashed and part rendered elevations, uPVC replacement windows and doors, a well appointed modern fitted kitchen and bathroom, and full gas fired central heating. There are also two charming reception rooms, two good bedrooms, a pretty, south facing cottage garden, and two valuable car parking spaces at the rear. An early inspection is recommended.

On the ground floor  A Canopy Porch and part glazed front door opens to the Dining Hall, having windows on two sides, an exposed ceiling beam and a staircase rising to the first floor. Opening off is the Attractive Sitting Room with a fitted gas fire, exposed ceiling beams and window overlooking the garden. The Fitted Kitchen again overlooks the garden, with a part glazed entrance door, and includes a range of cream wall and floor cabinets having laminated worktops and incorporating a stainless steel sink, recess/plumbing for a washing machine, a Flavel gas slot-in cooker with extractor hood over, tiled flooring and space for a fridge/freezer.

On the first floor  Leading from the Central Landing is a charming Double Bedroom with a hanging wardrobe. There is also a Second Character Bedroom with a built-in cupboard. The Well Appointed Bathroom contains a bath in tiled surround with a thermostatic shower over, washbasin and WC, together with a cupboard housing the Ideal gas fired central heating boiler.
