Tempest Court is the latest development by a bespoke local developer, who specialise in the conversion of period listed buildings into residential dwellings. Being located in the heart of the town, surrounded by a blend of period architecture, the Grade 2* listed building originally dates back to circa 1600, has a striking frontage and is reputed to have been the home of Richard Quiney, a contemporary of William Shakespeare.

The High Street has evolved to become the social hub of the town, with countless shops, bars, eateries and attractions such as the nearby RSC Theatre, providing a real holiday vibe all year round. The developers have gone to great lengths to embrace the character of the building, but also to implement sympathetic modern features and high quality fittings to create a truly unique home, with the added assurance of a 10 year independent build warranty. Having the flexibility of being able to use for holiday letting purposes, this amazing apartment should appeal to a wide demographic of buyer and is available immediately with no onward chain.
In brief, the accommodation comprises; Secure communal entrance hall with feature reclaimed timber wall, exposed industrial style conduits and light fittings and remote intercom access system. The stairwell to the upper floor is filled with natural light through a glazed roof lantern and leads off exclusively to each of the two apartments.
When entering Apartment 2, you are greeted by a double height entrance lobby, with lower level utility area, providing storage and plumbing for a washing machine. Stairs rise to the upper floor, where a central landing leads off to each of the rooms and a glazed door to side provides access to an amazing roof terrace, complete with artificial grass - a rare and invaluable space to unwind with friends in the summer months.
The main reception room is open plan, with a beautifully appointed and thoughtfully designed kitchen, perfectly equipped with ample storage, Silestone work surfaces and integrated branded appliances to include oven, induction hob, extractor, fridge and freezer. A breakfast bar provides space for occasional dining and divides the seating and dining areas. There is a good size double bedroom with window to front overlooking to the High Street and a stylish bathroom, complete with a period style white Burlington suite comprising panel bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin.
Residents are able to apply for residents and guests parking permits via Stratford upon Avon District Council at an annual cost of £25 per permit, providing the opportunity to park on the nearby surrounding roads.
