Set within the much sought after village of Wootton Wawen is this unique, individually built four bedroomed detached family home. With stunning views front and back and around 2600sq ft of accommodation, this spacious and versatile home is arranged over two floors with a substantial open plan sitting room which has a mezzanine dining area, breakfast kitchen, utility, master bedroom suite, three further double bedrooms, double garage and lovely mature front and rear gardens. Although the property will benefit from some modernisation the overall size, location and layout are all excellent.
Accommodation - Upon entering the property you are greeted with a light and generous entrance hallway with the galleried landing creating a real sense of height and space. The sitting room, dining room, kitchen and cloakroom are accessed directly from the hall creating a wonderful flow for family and guests alike.
One of the most wonderful features of this home is the distinctive, light and airy living room, with large floor to ceiling windows across two expansive walls that overlook both the front and rear gardens, not to mention the distinctive lower floor level with steps leading down into the room, this cleverly designed space offers unusually high ceilings and natural light to flood through. Creating a focal point to the room is the charming open fireplace with a brick built surround. Moving from this room steps lead up to the mezzanine dining room, again creating a most unique design and wonderful for entertaining.
The kitchen breakfast room is a good size with a range of fitted wall and base units, flitted appliances and a breakfast bar for four. A large picture window overlooks the pretty rear gardens and a door leads from here to the utility room that houses the boiler and offers further storage space, a Belfast laundry sink and space for washer/dryer. The second porch then leads to the integrated double garage with ample space and two ProMatic electric up and over doors.
Upstairs the galleried landing leads through to the superbly light and spacious master bedroom suite that makes the most of the stunning views and offers a large dressing/sitting area and en-suite bathroom.
There are storage cupboards on the generous landing, together with a family bathroom, three further double bedrooms and a good sized boarded loft with future potential.
Outside - To the front of the property you overlook open fields and have a generous driveway, access to the double garage and side access to the rear garden and two very useful brick built storage cupboards. The oil tank is also located at the front of the property but is discreetly hidden behind a smart white housing. To the side of the lawned area is an array of beautiful mature shrubs including Roses, Bamboos and Orange Blossom.
The rear garden has views across to Wootton Lake and the surrounding countryside and is well presented with a smart Cotswold stone terrace, a lovely shaped lawn and deep mature borders including Peonies, Bamboo and a beautiful Copper Beech all offering the perfect back drop and privacy.
Seller Insight - This unique home, which some might consider to be ahead of its time in terms of design, occupies a superb location at the very end of a private road just over a mile from the historic town of Henley-in-Arden. The house, which extends to well over two and a half thousand square feet, was built in 1974 by a developer who also built the two neighbouring properties, but this one he built for himself so Id like to think he went that extra mile in terms of its design and the overall construction quality, it would certainly seem that way, Its a very nice-looking house, well built with thoughtful interior design taking both family life and entertaining in mind, so although it was built over four decades ago, its still extremely conducive to modern living.
One enters this lovely home into a well-proportioned and light-filled reception hall that features an impressive and individually designed solid wood staircase that leads up to a galleried landing above. Its the perfect introduction to the wonderful sense of both light and space and mid-century modern interior design that flows throughout the rest of the property. The large lounge is slightly sunken below ground level to give extra ceiling height, and this room, which flows straight into the dining area, features ground to ceiling windows on both sides of the room that create a wonderful connection between inside and out. The house was definitely designed to take advantage of the setting. In the lounge, the huge amount of glazing almost makes you feel as if youre sitting outside, and the master bedroom, dressing room and large guest bedroom all overlook rolling countryside and a little farm on the hillside in the distance. Its a lovely home, ready to move in, but in my opinion someone with time and imagination could really take it on to that next level.
The garden is a very manageable size and it also enjoys a really good degree of privacy. Theres a large patio that wraps around two sides of the house, a nice-size lawn and lots of mature shrubs and plants that create colour and interest all year round. Its a very attractive space, but again theres so much that could be done to completely redesign the look and feel of the space.
The living room is definitely the standout room in the house. Its light and bright and has a lovely big feature fireplace, and the fact that it flows straight into the dining area makes it a lovely place for get-togethers with family and friends.
The house enjoys a very secluded location, but its by no means isolated. The village, which boasts a convenience shop, post office, two wonderful pubs, a beautiful church and a lovely craft centre, are all just a short walk away. Henley-in-Arden, which has excellent selection of shops, restaurants, schools, pubs and sporting facilities, is under five minutes away by car or bus, and from there you can catch a train to either Birmingham, London or Stratford Upon Avon.
Another standout feature of the house is the master suite. It incorporates a huge bedroom with windows at both ends overlooking the beautiful countryside, a dressing room and an en-suite bathroom that is the same size as some family bathrooms.
The house is just lovely, but its the location that I would say sets it apart, Its by no means isolated, but the sense of privacy is wonderful.
