The property is very spacious and there are high ceilings and sash windows throughout, in particular in the very large Victorian drawing room towards the rear of the house which also has fantastic views out to neighbouring Charlecote Park.

The current owners bought the house nine years ago and have completely refurbished it, including re-wiring and re-plumbing the property and carrying out restoration work to the walls, floors and the coach houses outside.

The cellars have been well converted to provide additional accommodation which includes the billiard room, gym and refurbished wine cellar.

Outside there is a good range of outbuildings, including Little Hampton Cottage, a three bedroom cottage with its own courtyard, a one bedroom cottage known as the Gun Room, and the whole west wing of the main house has been converted into a flat idea for live-on staff.

The house sits in nearly three acres of formal gardens, mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and direct river frontage onto the River Avon with fishing rights.

Stratford-upon-Avon provides a wide variety of shopping and leisure facilities, and there are regular direct trains to London from Warwick Parkway.

The guide price is £4.95m. For further information please telephone Knight Frank on 01789 297 735.
