Description

A 15th Century Grade II Listed Manor House steeped in character with superb views over the Warwickshire countryside.

This substantial residence is a rare opportunity to own a unique piece of history, near Stratford Upon Avon.
With many upgrades through the centuries, this house is known to have been lived in during the reign of Richard III and later leased from Henry VIII. With a richness of original features, this home has been carefully restored and extended over the years establishing a truly magnificent residence. All in all, there is almost 10,000 sq ft (929 sq m) of space available. Situated in over 4.5 acres of easily manageable land, this is the definition of a perfect country retreat.

The ground floor is superbly presented with oak panelling and deep oak framed leaded light windows, flagstone flooring, exposed ceiling and wall beams. There are several fireplaces including a stunning inglenook with wood burning stove. A panelled oak door in the under stairs store is rumoured to have been a priest hole in the Reformation period. Legend has it that the Hall could have linked to the old stone tower in Manor Lane via an underground passage.

The reception hall is entered through the lobby and provides access to most of the plethora of reception rooms. The kitchen has a modern marble top finish with an aga and separate large utility room, whilst the brilliant drawing room has views to three sides and the substantial study is perfect for working from home. The oak panelled dining room is steeped in history and has an open fireplace and a superb ambiance for fantastic dinner parties.

Upstairs and throughout all of the rooms there are deep oak framed leaded light windows with spectacular panoramic views over the Warwickshire countryside. There are two staircases and six double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities and also a family bathroom. The master bedroom suite has particularly significant features with heavy ceiling beam, stone fireplace and oak mantel and leads to an en-suite and through to a dressing room.

In total there are just over 4000 sq ft (372 sq m) of flexible outbuildings available including detached brick and tile barn, brick and tile stable block, gardener's store and workshop. There is also a four car garage block, tack room, bike store and coach house. Significantly there is the recreation and games room which has undergone extensive refurbishment offering a range of uses from an office to gymnasium.

Entered through a secure wrought iron gate there are approximately 4.5 acres of grounds including gardens and paddock. The gardens are beautifully maintained with a croquet lawn and surrounded by a selection of mixed shrubs and borders. There is also an all-weather tennis court and we understand there to be the option of acquiring further land if desired.

Claverdon is popular for commuters travelling to London (just over 1 hour by train) and is just four miles from the M40 and 6 miles from Warwick Parkway and within easy reach of Birmingham, nec and the Airport. Claverdon is situated in one of Warwickshire's premier villages and within the 'golden triangle' between Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and Henley in Arden.
