Grade II-listed barn conversion near Stratford-upon-Avon for sale at £775,000

An historic barn converted into a four-bedroomed residence in Warwickshire has come onto the market with DM & Co. Homes for offers in excess of £775,000.

The Grade II-listed property known as Wealden House on the Banbury Road, near Stratford-upon-Avon, dates back approximately 300 years and was converted in 1997.

Lisa Smith, sales director at DM & Co. Homes, explained that the barn is part of an exclusive courtyard of eight properties within the estate of Croft Farm.

Ms Smith said: “Wealden House is a unique Grade II-listed home in a stunning rural location, and just a short drive from the highly desirable medieval market town of Stratford-upon-Avon.

“The property has exposed beams throughout its spacious rooms, while outside is a detached double garage and a garden with incredible views.

“The impressive reception hall has a double-height ceiling and stairs leading to the galleried landing.

“The hall is flooded with natural light and is currently used as a further sitting room, but could also be used as a dining area.

“It enjoys floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the garden, with a door providing direct access to the garden and a useful cloaks cupboard.

“Leading off the hallway to the left is the stunning large lounge and dining room with an abundance of character, the brick fireplace and log burner being the focal point for the seating area.

“The dining area has plenty of space for a large table, and oak flooring runs throughout into the study and hall, with a step leading down to the study, perfect for home working, or as a playroom.

“To the right of the hallway is the breakfast kitchen with direct access to the garden, and a door leading to the utility area and rear lobby.

“The rear lobby leads to the downstairs bathroom and rear staircase to a double bedroom with a high-beamed ceiling and Velux windows, perfect for a teenager or family member seeking privacy.

“The main gallery landing has great views over the hallway and out to the garden and provides access to the remaining bedrooms and useful storage cupboard.

“All three first floor bedrooms feature exposed beams, the principal benefiting from an ensuite, and there is also a family bathroom.”

Wealden House is accessed off the Banbury Road, with a gravel driveway leading to the Croft Farm courtyard development.

There is parking directly outside the barn for two vehicles, and two further additional spaces are provided in front of the double garage.

The garage has stairs to a loft space perfect for storage, or it could easily be converted to a hobbies room subject to planning permission.

Ms Smith added: “The large mature rear garden has exceptional open countryside views, and the patio provides the perfect setting for alfresco entertaining, with spectacular views and tranquillity on offer.

“There is a large lawned area easy to maintain with mature borders and a useful shed, plus a rear gate to the shared driveway providing easy access to the garage.

“One further highlight is that the property lies within the catchment areas of well sought-after schools in Stratford, including the outstanding King Edwards VI, Stratford Girls and Alcester Grammar Schools.”
