Kara loves:
The location on the border of Warwickshire and the Cotswolds makes this home a spectacular spot for family life,

This stunning corner home warmly greets passersby, as the slate grey door opens into a beautiful entrance hall. The ground floor features a sitting room, dining room, kitchen with a breakfast nook, downstairs bathroom, utility room and courtyard. Up the first set of stairs, a spacious landing leads to three double bedrooms and a generous family bathroom. The second floor of the Corner House is the stunning attic suite with a sitting room area, luxury ensuite, and birds eye views over the town.

This Grade 2 Listed period home has eight sash windows facing out to the town centre, ideal for natural light and people watching. The door to Number 1 New Street has four little square windows above it, warm sconces framing the inviting entrance. As you step into the hall, you'll notice dark beams adorning the ceilings of this historical townhouse. On the right, the wooden floors flow into a cosy sitting room where a striking Crittal mirror reflects the sash window opposite, along with the gas stove and white fireplace surround. A sitting room by day, television snug by night - this space is undeniably charming.

Through the door on the left is the most majestic room in Number 1 New Street – the dining room. Beautiful and accommodating, the dining room is a versatile backdrop for beautiful brunches, wholesome Sunday roasts, and entertaining dinners. The gorgeous curved wall accentuates its corner home status, and three vast windows frame the room, allowing light to tumble in freely. Tall drapes hug the windows and brush against the soft-hued wooden floors, while the deep alcoves on both sides of the fireplace keep secrets and tableware.

A colourful glass panelled door leads the way into the kitchen and breakfast room. Its friendly table invites guests to stay and chat with the chef, as the water bubbles away on the gas hob. Along with the integrated appliances, the expansive range of cabinets ensure that every gadget and wine bottle have a home. As you wash up, peek through the windows into the courtyard and wave to your people enjoying a drink outside. Through the doorway at the end of the room is the tiled downstairs bathroom decorated in a cream palette with a glass shower and beautiful bowl basin. The tiled walls continue around the corner to the utility room with its stainless-steel sink, worktop space, under sink cabinet unit, and exposed brick wall.

White spindles follow the bend of the grey carpeted stairs to the first floor. The abundance of windows fills the landing with natural light, and from here, you can see directly into the second bedroom. Two double beds and freestanding wardrobes fit comfortably, making this a great space for the kids staying over. Around the corner, the sunny family bathroom has a white rolltop bath and glass shower. The freestanding basin with classic Victorian taps adds to the historic charm, while the grey tiles throughout bring a contemporary touch. Along the wall there is built-in storage, so bath accessories and linens can all be easily tucked away.
With a fantastic view over New Street, the third double bedroom is ideal for a trundle bed and a freestanding wardrobe. Next door, the romantic main bedroom with its dove grey walls has two dual aspect windows. Charming chrome rocker light switches serve the solitary ceiling lamp; although, this room is so full of light, you rarely need it. Echoing the dining room below, classic drapes border the windows in the sophisticated curved wall of this generous suite.
From the landing, walk up a second set of stairs and suddenly the marvellous attic suite opens before you. In the beautifully beamed, converted loft, there is a seating area for cosy reading chairs and plenty of room for family and friends to stretch out and play board games. Under the eaves, there is room for a double bed. Here, the shaded Velux window above gives you the opportunity to have a luxurious lie-in, if desired, and scenic views over Shipston-on-Stour.

The open bath suite adds indulgence to the everyday, and the cool grey tiles add a modern aesthetic to this historical home. Illuminated by the second Velux window, the freestanding Victorian bath inspires hours of soaking in hot bubbly water. The windows on this level have views of the church tower and roofscape toward the Cotswold countryside. Coming back down the stairs and through the kitchen, there is a white gravelled courtyard, home to miniature trees and beloved potted plants. Pour yourself a cup of tea and admire the intertwining vines weaving down the trellises on the wall. This lovely courtyard garden is easy to look after, so you can instead spend time focusing on your next adventure in the area. The Corner House is a great base for exploring endless destinations.

The best place to live in the UK? Possibly.

Shipston-on-Stour

Shipston-on-Stour has been declared one of the best places to live on more than one occasion, and to experience this quaint, historic market town is to firmly concur in its authenticity, community spirit and bountiful qualities that make it both old-school charming and contemporary in its hosting of amenities.

If tradition take your fancy, you’ll be tickled pink by the offering of cottage hospital, butchers, fishmongers and customary peppering of pubs, of this former working wool town. For a dose of daily modern life, contemporary independent businesses are right their on your doorstep. Head to Portobello Farm, the lifestyle emporium, for a perusal of the coolest pieces for design savvy folk. Antiques, vintage and pre-loved pieces are to be discovered there. The George Townhouse and the Bower House are modern gastro pubs to satiate that appetite, morning, noon and night. Further out you’ll find the Royal Oak at Whatcote and The Fuzzy Duck (careful how you say it) at Armscote to whet the whistle.

Fancy a walk along the River Stour? it’s all yours to enjoy. But, should meandering further afield spark your imagination, head over to nearby Stratford-upon-Avon for the majesty of Shakespeare’s home digs, step into the grounds of Warwick Castle, or bimble around Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh.

National Trust gems like Upton House are also close by to really seal the deal on this stunning little market town.
