Mr Clarke thinks :
Period features with a cottagey feel but high ceilings and bags of natural light, plus an easy commute on top of a rural setting.
A charming 4-bedroom cottage weaving character with contemporary style and rural views.
Set in a small terrace of four houses, from the well sized gravel driveway with single garage you’re led up to the front door via a wooden gate and small lawned front garden. Once inside, the lounge on the right of the hallway oozes character with its high ceilings, beams, shutters, wooden floors, wood burning stove with wooden mantle and brick surround. Sitting in the lounge, you can enjoy the fantastic views of the fields beyond through the double French doors which lead straight out to the patio and garden. The lounge has that all important cosy cottage feel to it for those long winter months yet masses of light and the ability to bring the outside in on those sunny summer days.
The kitchen mixes the feel of a traditional cottage (with its slate flooring, beams, exposed brickwork, Belfast sink and bespoke natural wood Shaker style cupboards) seamlessly with a more contemporary style to the dining area with the window to the front garden.
There are granite worktops, a Rangemaster double range, a large American style Rangesmaster fridge/ freezer plus separate wine fridge in the kitchen as well as integral Bosch dishwasher, integral Hotpoint washer dryer and separate utility/ cloaks cupboard by the back door.
Our favourite bits are the views out to the garden and the intimate, contemporary dining area – perfect for having friends over for a casual meal or just cocktails!
Both rooms downstairs have direct access straight out to the fantastic garden – perfect for enjoying the sunrise in the morning with a cup of coffee or making the most of the views with a G&T at the end of the day.
Upstairs on the first floor are three bright and airy double bedrooms and a great sized family bathroom with free-standing roll top bath and separate shower, whilst in the eaves on the second floor is a fantastic master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and another generous (en-suite) bathroom with separate bath and shower.

The tranquillity with incredible views and sunrise over the fields whilst still being so close to both Warwick and Leamington
Ideally located a stone’s throw from both Warwick and Leamington Spa. If you love period cottage features but want high ceilings, a rural setting yet accessibility then we could have just what you’re looking for. March Cottage has wonderful rural views over rolling fields providing a real sense of tranquillity, and yet is located merely 1.5 miles from the heart of historic Warwick on the Banbury Rd and only 3 miles away from Leamington town centre. Along with all the amenities both towns have to offer, the transport links are excellent with easy access to junction 15 of the M40 motorway 2 miles away and to the rail network from either Warwick or Leamington Spa railway stations. There are great local schools to choose from being in the Bishop’s Tachbrook catchment area and just on the edge of Barford St Peter’s catchment area, as well as several well-known public schools right on the doorstep.
Outside to the front the property is set back from the Banbury Rd and benefits from a generous gravelled driveway with enough parking for several cars and a single garage (currently used as a gym and for storage). The large garden to the rear has a patio, sundeck dining area, lovers’ seat and a brick-built boiler room and a separate storage shed. The garden has the benefit of a separate accesss via 1 The Asps.
