A charming home in the heart of Stratford

Mrs Clarke

The welcoming, comfortable spaces created in this stylish Stratford-upon-Avon home are the result not only of stylistic sensitivity and well sourced materials but a deep intellectual engagement to modern living. The Victorian property has been carefully extended and renovated to provide a mix of large sociable spaces, intimate rooms and a beautiful private garden.

Great William Street is a charming part of Stratford with a mix of houses and lots of friendly neighbours. You are moments from buzz of the town centre in one direction - you can be inside M&S or having a pint at The One Elm within two minutes - and seconds from peace and tranquility along the canal in the other.

"We fell in love with the house and the garden the moment we walked in", explains the current owner. The garden is a wonderful surprise - you don't expect there to be such a large area at the back of the house with such a bucolic atmosphere. The cottage garden has been landscaped to include a patio area off the kitchen, which leads into a garden packed full of interest. The topiary, rosemary and evergreens give structure throughout the year and allow the seasonal flowers to sing in their own time. The little path meanders through the garden to another seating area and to a shed. We think that the garden could easily accommodate a studio or garden room.

Back through the French doors you enter the large kitchen where you can imagine suppers with friends and long weekend breakfasts with family. There is lots of space for everyone to be together and helping with cooking. The clever use of space, the subtle Farrow & Ball hues on the wall and the stylish flooring all add to the warm, calm vibe. This is the heart of the home and we think it is a very special space.

Just off the kitchen you find a utility room housing the washing machine and dryer and there is plenty of space for boots, dogs and all those unsightly bit and pieces we all have. The side access provides an easy connection to the garden.

Every room has its own accent and purpose. Every wall has been thoughtfully painted, every door stripped back and each piece of history carefully and sympathetically brought back to life. The main living room is a formal place where you can relax and watch the world go by through the sash windows, whilst the Victorian fireplaces warms your toes. The snug on the ground floor is a flexible room that has a multitude of uses - "a previous owner had a grand piano in here, we have set it up as a space where we can read and listen to music", adds the lady of the house. 

On the lower ground floor the current owners have created a reception room where they work. The room also doubles up as a guest bedroom with the inclusion of a double sofa bed.

On the first floor you find two bedrooms and a family bathroom. The Master bedroom has a subtle calmness created by the soft colour palette and large sash window that lets the morning light gently fill the room. The bedroom is not overlooked, which creates a private and peaceful sleeping space. The second bedroom is set up as a little boys room and fits a big bed in and a good amount of storage. 

The bathroom faces out to the garden and the trees at the back of the house. The luxurious room is complemented by Fired Earth tiles, Farrow & Ball Elephants Breath adorned walls, large bath and separate shower with Victorian style fittings."It's so peaceful to lie in the bath and look out to the trees and evening sky..."

Summary

  • Style : A Victorian house with space and character.
  • Highlight : The cottage garden and effortless connection to the stunning kitchen.
  • Three Words : Stylish. Spacious. Home.
  • Our favourite part A brick path curves through topiaries and under an arch covered in roses and jasmine.

Location

More than Shakespeare

Bursting with culture, cafés and class

Stratford upon Avon is a world-renowned destination for those seeking culture, but what is it like for the locals?

"We love living here. When you scratch away the tourist veneer you find a buzzing town with a real sense of community", explains one local we bump into at The One Elm pub.

Let's split Stratford into two: The Everyday and The Special Occasions.

Mr Clarke will give you the run down of what you need to know for every day life;

You have every supermarket within walking distance of the town centre - If I want gin or nappies I head to Aldi, a posh meal deal I go to M&S, the weekly shop Tesco and everything in between I try to keep it local at the weekly market.

Schools? There are as many great school options as there are supermarkets. From the outstanding Stratford Primary & Broad Street School to Stratford Prep, KES, Shottery and Stratford High.

Everyday life and whatever your preferences are - Stratford has it covered.

Historic past, with a fantastic future; from festivals and plays to great shopping, huge range of restaurants and surrounded by beautiful countryside – what’s not to like?

Now onto the fun bit. Here are Mrs Clarke's tips...

Favourite restaurant - Salt is a small but perfectly formed place for a romantic meal or a night out with Mr C!

Best night out -Drinks at the Townhouse, a play at the theatre, a drink at The Dirty Duck and sleep at Hotel Du Vin

Weekends are spent - playing tennis, lunch at One Elm, feeding the ducks with the kids then the Everyman cinema.

Top tip - the antiques at Bonds just outside of town are fab and the curry at Aladins in Tiddington are amazing.

  • Closest village/town: Stratford is surrounding by picturesque villages or and both Warwick and Leamington Spa are within a short drive.
  • Post Office: 1
  • Stores: Lots of great independent shops and High Street favourites
  • Supermarket: Waitrose just outside the town as well as a number of other large stores
  • Pubs: So many
  • Walks: Along the Avon or take a stroll or bike along The Greenway
