This fine, Grade II Listed, Georgian fronted detached Warwickshire farmhouse, is situated in an idyllic back water setting in the heart of the picturesque village of Ardens Grafton. The character filled accommodation is presented over four floors, extends to approximately 3,758 sq ft, and benefits from a separate stone built barn, offering great potential for conversion to ancillary accommodation (subject to planning).

Believed to have originally dated back to Tudor times, boasting later editions, Manor House was the former 'home farm' to Grafton Court, one of the counties most distinguished residences and has evolved over time to become a wonderful family home serving the current owners well for over 40 years.
Access to the neighboring towns of Stratford upon Avon, Warwick and Alcester, the property is ideally positioned to enjoy a rural lifestyle with the benefit of having easy access to countless amenities, including those further afield in Birmingham and London, via either the M40 motorway network or nearby train stations with direct links to the capital.
Upon approach, you advance through a central ornate gate with blue lias stone walls and brick pillars, to a gravelled pathway, flanked by shaped box hedging and lawns. Entering the property, you are greeted by an impressive dining hall, with inglenook fireplace and flag stone flooring throughout. There are two further reception rooms, an inner lobby with cellar, breakfast kitchen, garden room and useful utility / boot room.
To the first floor, there are four double bedrooms and two bathrooms and a further two double bedrooms and study landing to the second. Views towards the Malvern Hills and Welsh Black Hills can be enjoyed from the upper floors, along with a wealth of exposed beams and feature fireplaces.
Externally, the mature plot that surrounds the property extends to approximately 0.5 acres and provides a high level of privacy. To the rear, a generous enclosed lawned paddock has a number of interspersed fruit trees, including plum, apple and pears along with a vegetable patch and oak framed lean to / car port. There is a further area of lawn to side with well stocked herbaceous borders, and a paved seating area enjoying a sunny aspect and access to the internal accommodation. Beyond a secure five bar gate, a long gravelled driveway leads to the forecourt parking area providing space for several vehicles. A substantial part stone built barn currently offers covered and enclosed parking and storage, but does offer immense potential to be remodelled into ancillary accommodation, such as an annex or home office / hobbies space, subject to obtaining the relevant planning permission.
