Ivy House is believed to date back in parts to the late 16th Century and is Grade II Listed. It was later extended and improved to offer an abundance of spacious and highly versatile accommodation throughout - some 4,283 sq ft. The position of the property is particularly attractive as the house sits back from the road beyond a mature, walled frontage and is within easy walking distance of the village shop, school and pub. Stratford is a short drive away with onward links to all the major towns and cities by the motorway and train network.

Internal viewing is strongly recommended to fully appreciate the standard and scale of accommodation on offer, which in brief comprises: An inviting central hallway with beautiful flagstone flooring which continues into a characterful drawing room, complete with impressive stone fireplace and dual aspect windows. The spacious sitting room boasts an inglenook fireplace, open hearth and exposed ceiling beams. There is also a separate formal dining room with feature fireplace, matching flagstone flooring and French door set to side. The breakfast kitchen has been recently installed and comprises a range of bespoke cupboards with hand painted door fronts, contrasting granite surfaces and a dual Belfast sink and drainer unit, centred around a large breakfast island. Appliances include a double oven, induction hob, wine cooler and dishwasher. An opening then leads through to a fully fitted walk in pantry and stores which serves as an extension to the kitchen itself. A period-style, glazed garden room provides space for a bistro set and naturally flows through to The Old Dairy, an impressive Barn Room, which has been fully modernised and refurbished to an exceptional standard, providing a highly versatile living space for a family as a games room, hobbies room, home office/workspace or guest suite, as there is a stylish shower room and mezzanine area for sleeping quarters, plus a utility room.
To the first floor of the main house, a central landing leads to a well-appointed principal bathroom and four double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities. To the second floor, there are two further double bedrooms (one en-suite) and a large reading area or private second floor sitting room/hobbies room, which completes the accommodation.
The gardens to Ivy House are quite magnificent, with dedicated areas for entertaining and relaxing, together with a mature and productive kitchen garden. There are sun trap patios to the East and West sides of the property with interspersed specimens of mature trees, shrubs and flowering plants, all helping to provide a private and secluded oasis. A gravelled driveway to the side of the house leads through brick pillars to the double open carport and parking area.
