Henley in Arden is a popular and picturesque old market town, straddling the A3400 Stratford upon Avon (8 miles) to Birmingham (17 miles) road. It lies 8 miles from Warwick, 10 miles from Leamington Spa, and 7 miles from Redditch. The district is well served by road and rail links, the M40 motorway being available at Longbridge, Warwick (Junction 15,5 miles away) and also at Lapworth to the north (3 miles). The M40 gives access to the M42, M6 and M5 motorways, and the south. The National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station are within 20 minutes drive, as also is Solihull town centre.
Henley in Arden itself contains a wide variety of amenities including shops, cultural and leisure facilities, schools - both state and private, a Post Office, banks, restaurants and doctors surgery, in addition to regular bus and train services.
This delightful traditional period cottage is situated in the picturesque and historic High Street within walking distance of the shops and other above mentioned amenities. Originally believed to have been attached to and used in conjunction with the adjoining Manse, it still retains an interesting built in font, in addition to a wealth of fine old timbers and character fireplaces.
To the rear is a charming, typical town house walled patio garden which is an absolute sun trap, yet quiet and sheltered, with a gate from the High Street.
The mostly secondary glazed accommodation makes it an ideal family home, or retirement "lock up and leave it" property for those contemplating spending time abroad in the winter.
