Flaxhide is located in the heart of Walcote, a pretty unspoiled village located towards the borders of Stratford-upon-Avon and Alcester, ideally positioned to take advantage of the countless rural pursuits and wider amenities at hand.

Originally converted in the early 1990's, the property has since been thoughtfully modernised by the current owners and altered to increase the space and versatility of accommodation. Later additions include a recently constructed detached garage and oak framed ancillary building. In all the property extends to approximately 4,232 sqft and affords a highly versatile layout with high quality fittings throughout, ideal for growing families, or possibly a multi-generational family with a dependent relative requiring separate ground floor living accommodation.
Set within 2.6 acres of gardens and paddocks, the property also enjoys a separate, vehicular access to rear, leading into two enclosed paddocks, providing ample space for those wishing to indulge their equestrian interests, or simply embrace rural living within their own extensive grounds.

Set back from the lane, beyond an in-and-out driveway with feature raised beds to side and mature frontage, this attractive period home sits well within its plot and exudes a dominant presence on approach. Entering the property via an enclosed porch, you are greeted by a welcoming reception hall with flagstone flooring and oak doors throughout, dual aspect windows and stairs rising to the upper floor. There are 'his and hers' WC's and latch and brace doors leading off to the other rooms. The principal reception room is expansive and provides the perfect space for families to gather.

There are two dedicated seating zones, one centred around an impressive inglenook fireplace with flagstone hearth and inset log burner. There are exposed beams throughout and dual aspect windows, flooding the room with natural light. The formal dining room also benefits from two zones, one for formal dining and another as an occasional snug or breakfast area. An interlinking door then leads through to the bespoke kitchen/breakfast room with high quality fittings. This space is well equipped with a comprehensive range of hand crafted storage units and door fronts, complemented by thick granite worksurfaces, double Belfast sink and a dual module AGA. Additional appliances include a conventional oven, combination microwave oven, 5 ring hob, extractor, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. From here, you step down to the inner lobby, with additional access to the front of the building and door off to a useful utility/laundry room.
The family room is an equally impressive space, enhanced by tall vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. This multi-purpose room affords several potential uses and interlinks via a discreet door to a brand new addition of a lounge area, bedroom and large en-suite shower room. Combined, this creates the perfect space for a dependent relative or luxury home working space.
To the first floor, an open galleried landing with seating area enjoys exposed beams and a string of windows to front allowing ample light to fill the walkway. There are four double bedrooms, each with views to rear towards the gardens and fields beyond. The master bedroom notably boasts a walk-in dressing room with storage and stylish en-suite bath and shower room. The principal bathroom has a feature freestanding roll top bath and separate shower.

Externally, the property sits comfortably within its plot and enjoys a sunny due east oriented rear garden which has been beautifully landscaped to provide a large paved patio, ideal for entertaining, overlooking an expanse of raised lawn with mature planted boarders and central steps further leading upwards and through to the first paddock. This space is laid to grass and is accompanied by a large, high quality oak framed outbuilding, comprising a four bay frontage, one is enclosed for tractor storage, and the remaining three are open providing space for a party barn, various hobbies or further general storage. Continuing through to the second paddock, you are diverted by the breath-taking views to side, over the adjoining countryside and beyond. Mixed hedging to the southern boundary provides a level of seclusion and privacy and a private driveway/track enters to the lower field that can be accessed via Mill Lane. In all, the plot extends to approximately 2.6 acres and could appeal to a buyer with equestrian interests or those wishing to keep hobby livestock.

To the front of the property, there is a newly constructed, oversized detached double garage with room above, providing secure parking and additional storage space or potential ancillary accommodation STP.


Walcote is a small village in Warwickshire, lying just one mile south of the Ancient Roman market town of Alcester. Alcester has grown in both size and popularity in recent years, offering excellent shopping, recreational facilities and good schools, including Alcester Grammar School, and being surrounded by delightful Warwickshire countryside. Both Alcester town and nearby Stratford upon Avon fully retain their original character, with many fine historic buildings and places to visit. A further benefit is the proximity to other Midland centres such as Birmingham, Worcester, Evesham and Warwick, further expanding on the countless amenities available.
