Character, Cottage, Stunning views, Amazing garden, Sought after village location. What more could you want?
Look no further - you've just found this this charming 400-year-old thatched cottage that oozes charismatic history.
A pretty garden backing onto fields gives you all the privacy anyone would want, just imagine the parties and barbeques you'll enjoy. With two big bedrooms, two lovely reception rooms, and a good size kitchen, although with all modern facilities, are crammed with signs of the past. The village boasts plenty of amenities, you'll only be three miles from Stratford upon Avon with its great selection of shops, bars and restaurants to browse around. This property really is worth seeing.
You walk through the front garden, up some steps and come through the front door which is sheltered by a porch, ideal for those muddy wellingtons after a country walk. The dining hall is beautifully proportioned with plenty of room for entertaining, and the aged flagstone floor takes you to French doors opening to an arbour and into the lovely mature garden.
There is a second inviting reception room which, of course, could be used as a dining room if you prefer.
The kitchen is superbly fitted with all the necessary white goods, a window over the rear garden and has direct access into the garden from the back porch.
Both bedrooms are large with built-in wardrobes.
The newly fitted shower room has a large walk in shower, sink and wc.
We must mention the garden again - not only is it completely private, it has been carefully planned with mature trees, shrubs and pretty flowers. One of the main features is the arbour, a delightful shady spot, ideal for a quiet read with a cuppa, dining or outdoor entertaining on one of those warm, balmy summer evenings.
Sitterfield itself is a mere 3 miles from Stratford upon Avon and much sought-after. It boasts shopping, social and recreational amenities including a riding school and sports club as well as cafés and of course the usual village pub - in fact the Snitterfield Arms was voted England's best recently. Close at hand there is also a renowned farm shop, and popular golf course. There is an excellent primary school, as well as an outstanding dental practice in the village. Not only all of this, Snitterfield has its very own vineyard.
Snitterfield is not only within easy reach of Stratford upon Avon - places such as Warwick, Leamington Spa, Coventry, Solihull, and Alcester are well within striking distance along with many lovely villages in the iconic north Cotswolds. In minutes you will be at J15 of the M40 so Oxford and Birmingham are less than an hour away. Warwick Parkway rail station, with its plentiful parking, is just 10 minutes away.
And did you know that Richard Shakespeare, William Shakespeare's grandfather, lived in Snitterfield? And that John Shakespeare, William's father was born in the village? And that John Grant who was recruited into the infamous Gunpowder Plot (1605) also came from this village? Other famous people include Richard Jago, the poet, was rector from 1754-1781 and John Wootton who was a famous painter and illustrator of sporting scenes came from here. Why not join these illustrious people and make this appealing village your new home?
