Sandpiper is a detached country house built in 1966 under a tiled roof in a rural location with lovely views over the estate and beyond to the Cotswolds and the Malverns. Approached past the neighbouring property, the house is well screened from the road by a high evergreen hedge. Built of brick with large double glazed windows giving bright, spacious accommodation, hardwood panelled doors, architraves, and coved and egg and dart cornices. Being built on a slope, there is a lower ground floor providing additional space and a second-floor bedroom and loft space, offering opportunities for home working or extended family living if desired. The property has extensive storage and scope to adapt the accommodation to suit the buyer. The house has accommodation of nearly 5,000 sq ft, which with the garage and loft rooms increases to about 6,300 sq ft of space. The garden and views are a significant attraction to the enjoyment of living at Sandpiper.

Approached through a porch, the reception hall has a wide, shallow hardwood staircase, WC and coat closet. The 28 ft drawing room with expansive picture windows to two sides has a recessed fireplace and an exposed feature brick wall in keeping with its architectural period. There is a study to the front, and the dining room has double doors from the drawing room and a door to the wrought iron-railed balcony verandah, which enjoys the best of the views over the garden and beyond and with steps down to the garden. The double-height designer library with exposed brickwork also accesses the balcony with wide sliding patio doors. It has a timber spiral staircase to a jettied gallery above with bookshelves and a fine Sapele timber ceiling.

A fitted kitchen/breakfast room has timber-fronted kitchen units with integrated appliances, a built-in pantry and an island unit with a breakfast bar. A lobby leads to the wide double garage with a workbench and sink, an adjoining store and a staircase to the lower ground floor boot room with a door to the garden and gardener's WC. A hobby room has storage and cupboards, a workshop and access to extensive low-level storage. The utility room has a boiler, a sink and plumbing. There is an externally accessed tool store and oil storage tank.

On the first floor off the spacious landing is the principal bedroom, which has an expansive south-facing window with views of the charming Weethley church, a range of fitted wardrobes and patio doors to a second high-level balcony, and an en suite bathroom and a dressing room with shower. There are three bedrooms on the first floor with fitted wardrobes, and bedroom 4 has access to the gallery above the library. Large family bathroom with oval spa bath, wash basin, bidet, WC and shower.

To the second floor is a landing /study/playroom with extensive eaves storage, lobby to Bedroom five, currently fitted as a display room, with expansive views from the Velux window and access to two loft rooms.

A tarmac drive provides parking and leads past a topiary evergreen in the shape of a Sandpiper. The gardens and grounds are a delight, very well stocked and with extensive lawns and different slopes and levels. A pumped water rill and fountain, brick and timber pergola with climbing roses. Summer house with power and light, paved patio seating areas, mature trees including birch, ash, beech and variegated maple, fruit trees, evergreen trees and shrubs, ornamental shrub and flower beds and beech hedges. There is a formal rose garden, compost bays and garden stores—greenhouse and garden paths and steps. The fields and woodlands of the Ragley estate could also be enjoyed.

The small hamlet of Weethley is about 3 miles southwest of Alcester near the Warwickshire/Worcestershire border. In 1877 the village came into the hands of The Marquess of Hertford, and much of the parish and its beautiful surrounding countryside still belongs to the Ragley Hall Estate. The pretty limestone Church of St James is the focal point of the hamlet.

The area is readily accessible to the national motorway network and intercity railway stations. There is an excellent range of state, private and grammar schools in the area, including the grammar schools at Alcester and Stratford upon Avon and Kings School in Worcester. Stratford-upon-Avon, with its Shakespearian heritage, is the region's cultural centre. There are golf courses in the area at Bidford-on-Avon, Evesham and Stratford-upon-Avon. Racing at Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham.
