Tempest Court is the latest development by a bespoke local developer, who specialise in the conversion of period listed buildings into residential dwellings. Located in the heart of the town, surrounded by a blend of period architecture, this Grade II* 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 feature entrance from the High Street includes oak panelling formed from 300 year old Warwickshire canal lock doors, and stairwell to the upper floor filled with natural light through a glazed roof lantern, which leads off exclusively to each of the two apartments.
When entering Apartment 1, you are greeted by an inner hall with Karndean flooring, feature glazed elevation to side and bespoke glazed oak doors leading into the open-plan living space. This room boasts impressive proportions, enhanced by the high ceilings and an expanse of leaded glazing to front. There are three carefully planned zones within the open-plan space, which benefits from underfloor heating and includes a dedicated seating area, dining area and kitchen. Exposed beams continue throughout and a large cupboard provides useful storage. The kitchen is beautifully appointed and well-designed to provide ample storage beyond sleek coloured door fronts and contrasting white Silestone work surfaces over, extending to a large island and breakfast bar. Bosh / Neff appliances include a double oven, induction hob, extractor, microwave, fridge, freezer and washing machine. Collectively, this room is the perfect space to host guests and entertain in a social, modern and relaxed atmosphere.
The two double bedrooms are filled with natural light through glazed roof lanterns and have mechanical air ventilation systems. The en suite to the master bedroom and the principal bathroom both have luxury, period style White Burlington suites, complete with quality fittings and Villeroy & Boch tiling.
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.
