Kara thinks:
The character in this home is utterly charming.

Sitting in a quiet spot in Shrewley, amidst the tranquil countryside, The Stables stands as a Grade II listed Three bedroomed barn conversion that traces its origins back to the 1640s.

Kara loves:
It's an exceptional space for hosting friends. The layout invites lively conversations and laughter.

Once serving as the bakery and stables for the original Shrewley House, this historic structure is now a stunning home brimming with character and charm. Set within a private courtyard shared by just four homes.

As you approach The Stables, the large feature arch windows immediately captivate, offering a glimpse into an inviting, open-plan space. At the heart of the home, the spacious kitchen and dining area seamlessly blend modern comforts with authentic character. A contemporary glass and oak staircase commands attention, gracefully leading into a realm where oak floors guide you through a warm and welcoming journey.

In the kitchen, echoes of its storied past resonate through original stable doors and ceiling beams. These historical elements harmonize beautifully with a cream wooden country-style kitchen adorned with sleek black granite countertops. A central island, complete with breakfast bar seating, invites culinary endeavors and lively conversations. Equipped with top-tier amenities including integrated appliances and dual Neff ovens, this kitchen promises all the tools necessary to craft gourmet delights or casual family meals. On warmer days, the barn door can be swung open to savor garden views, adding a touch of seasonal delight to the culinary experience.

Adjacent to the kitchen, the expansive dining space exudes an air of conviviality, ideal for hosting festive gatherings or intimate family meals beneath the soft glow of French country-style lighting. This natural entertaining space is perfect for animated dinners and evenings around the table with family or for a quick drink before donning wellies for a walk to the pub with friends. Around the corner, a practical utility area with granite surfaces and ample storage feels both fresh and delightfully unexpected. Nearby, a convenient guest toilet stands ready to accommodate.

The spacious sitting room exudes cozy comfort, centered around a warming log burner nestled within an exposed brick fire surround. This setting is perfect for cherished family gatherings and quiet winter evenings. For quieter moments, a sunlit sunroom with bi-fold doors offers a serene retreat for reading or remote work, seamlessly connecting indoor tranquility with the outdoor allure of the garden.

Upstairs, The Stables is a haven of rest and relaxation, cleverly divided into two wings for privacy. The master bedroom, a sanctuary of exposed beams and rustic brick accents, enjoys a galleried aspect overlooking the sitting room, bathed in sunlight from Velux windows that frame idyllic countryside views. An ensuite shower room ensures practical luxury, featuring a corner shower and thoughtful storage solutions.

The landing showcases the barn's rich history, with its feature beams prominently displayed. Two additional double bedrooms, both ensuite and boasting vaulted ceilings, offer ample space and character. One bedroom even features an arresting wall of exposed bricks and beams. Each ensuite bathes its occupant in opulent indulgence, complete with Jacuzzi baths and invigorating showers, reminiscent of a spa-like sanctuary within the home.

Outside, the property unfolds its charms further with a generous shared courtyard offering private parking and a mature country garden that blooms with timeless allure. The south-facing, sun-drenched rear garden, designed for low maintenance yet high enjoyment, invites leisurely afternoons lounging on sunbeds or enjoying summer barbecues.

For those with creative aspirations or entrepreneurial dreams, a triple garage beckons with endless possibilities. Its polished porcelain floors and electric doors promise a versatile canvas for a home office, music studio, or expansive games room. Above, a large space with its own amenities awaits, offering bespoke oak storage, a separate shower room, and a kitchenette, ideal for extended living quarters or an artist's studio.

Set in the picturesque surroundings of Shrewley, renowned for its historical charm and bucolic vistas, The Stables offers a rare blend of rural tranquility and urban accessibility. With Warwick a mere six miles away and Stratford-upon-Avon just eight miles distant, daily conveniences and cultural delights are within easy reach. For the commuter, Warwick Parkway station lies a short four miles away, providing swift access to London Marylebone, while the nearby M40 motorway ensures effortless connections to the wider world.

In essence, this Grade II listed barn conversion is more than a home; it is a living testament to history, artfully blending past and present to create a haven where rustic charm meets contemporary luxury. Here, within its storied walls, lies the invitation to write your own chapter of enduring beauty and comfort.

Shrewley

Warwickshire countryside at it's prettiest

Shrewley

Shrewley is one of those perfect little villages where you feel serenely isolated in the middle of gorgeous countryside, but you are in fact better connected than most places in the UK. You can be in Warwick or Solihull within a few minutes or you can be zipping into London from Warwick Parkway. For international jet setters, you are 22 minutes from Birmingham Airport where you can whizz to Geneva or sunnier climates. For the drivers, the M40, M5 and M1 are close by, which opens up the country nicely for work or getting around.

Mr Clarke loves the fact that there are two pubs within walking distance and many others within a ten minute drive. “The Case is the best spot for a quiet pint and a chat with pals. The Ox is ideal for a family Sunday lunch. It’s great to have two pubs so close to your doorstop.”

There are several National Trust properties close by; Baddelsey Clinton and Packwood House. Mrs Clarke loves the kitchen garden at Packwood and the cafe at Baddelsey. Wroxall Abbey is the 12th Century country seat of Sir Christopher Wren, which is now a luxury hotel. The Abbey provides the perfect backdrop for walks around Hay Wood.

There is a great choice of schools, from highly regarded local primaries in Lapworth and Ferncumbe to top class independent schools in Warwick, Solihull and Leamington.

We caught up with one of the Range Rover, Barbour wearing local yummy mummies to hear why she loves Shrewley. “I can drop the kids off at school in Warwick then head to The Ardencote, which is the best gym I’ve ever been a member of. The village shop has all the day to day necessities we need in between the Ocado shop. At weekends we adore The Orange Tree in Chadwick End or having everyone around at ours for supper.”

A pub, lots of country walks, the friendliest community and a village shop that serves delicious samosas... what more do you need?
