Church House is a large Georgian property of rare intricacy and distinction. There is an exciting opportunity for new owners to create a beautiful family home in a charming village.

The grand entrance hall oozes history. The original stone flooring is covered in soft rugs and as you take your shoes off you can’t wait to walk around. There are ornate touches in every corner, from the wood panelling to the cornicing and old door bell. To the right is a large sitting room, which has hosted many parties. It’s magical looking out to Wootton Hall and the Saxon church of St Peter, famed as being the oldest church in Warwickshire, with a tower dating back to the 900’s. The back window leads onto the cute back garden. We would get some French doors put in to make this stunning room into a garden room.

The most used room in the home is currently the snug, and we can see why. Sitting around the fire, surrounded by book cases you can’t help but relax and engage in conversation. It’s an old fashioned sitting room of the finest order.

Head along the hall, down a few steps and you find another room, currently used as an office. This could be a dining room or you could explore knocking through the wall to make the snug bigger.

Down a few more steps and you come to a large utility with a door leading to the back garden and another door leading into the lovely country style kitchen. As you wander around you can imagine the home filled with children, friends, family and a dog.

Upstairs is a treasure trove of rooms and space and lots of opportunity. The large landing leads to five bedrooms and three bathrooms. All rooms are spacious, as is typical of homes of the era. The ceilings are high and the windows are large, letting light in. What is surprising is how quiet the home is, considering it is on a road. The windows have been glazed to prevent noise disturbance.

The home is not listed.

The basement could be transformed into a cinema room, playroom or large office.

Outside is a driveway and car port. The back and side gardens are pretty and offer you the chance to grow vegetables or relax around a BBQ. Although not the biggest garden it is low maintenance and could be landscaped to provide a peaceful and tranquil oasis.

The Church House has everything you want from a house; space and charm. It also offers someone a great opportunity to add their personal touch to make it their very own, old but modern home.

Summary

  • History : A Georgian 5 bedroom property
  • The Future : Huge potential to make into a beautiful home
  • Downstairs : Three reception rooms, boot room, kitchen and the most inviting entrance hall ever.
  • Our favourite part The chocolate box home and the exciting opportunity it offers.

Location

Nestled in the heart of the Warwickshire countryside sits wonderful Wootton Wawen

Henley-in-Arden is just down the road and Stratford-upon-Avon is just up the road

When you think of an idyllic village you think of peace and quiet but with a buzzing community, a great pub, lovely people and lots to do. Welcome to Wootton Wawen.

Wootton Wawen is rural bliss yet very well connected. There is a train station and you are only 7 miles from Stratford upon-Avon and only 2 miles from Henley-in-Arden. So if you need a scoop of the famous ice cream you a minutes away!

In the village there is lots going on. The Navigation and The Bulls Head are both cracking pubs that dish up good food and a great pint. Yew Tree Farm has the fantastic Cowshed Cafe, a spa and a farm shop. There is a post office and a well stocked general store (we love the daily messages on the blackboard).

A great village shop, cracking pub, canals, countryside, river and a farm shop. What more could you ask for?

The local primary school has a good Ofsted report and the parents we talk to say it's a really friendly school. There are some great secondary schools, both state and private, close by.

The annual walk through Bluebell Woods has been held by the Haimes family of Yew Tree Farm, Wootton Wawen for the past 25 years and proceeds benefit different charities each year. It is a spectacular sight to see the bluebells in full bloom.

The walks along the canal are a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon, especially when there is a drink waiting at the end.
