Burmington House is a privately situated country property in the pretty village of Burmington in Warwickshire. The house is believed to date from 1829 and remains unlisted, which offers excellent scope to extend, subject to appropriate planning consents. The architecture is classic Georgian with a fine stone portico entrance.
The property retains many period features including decorative door frames, fireplaces and flagstones while the exposed wooden floors in the elegant entrance hall and the sweeping staircase are also extremely noteworthy. The drawing room, dining room and study are spacious reception rooms and the breakfast kitchen leads out to the rear courtyard. There are extensive cellars below the house.
Upstairs the master bedroom suite and four further good-sized bedrooms are on the first floor, and the second floor houses a fifth bedroom ideal for a teenager or guests.

Outside the formal lawns to the front and south are punctuated by mature trees and shrubs, while to the north/east is the courtyard for outdoor entertaining. The detached annexe is built over two storeys and is ideal for a games room or a granny annexe. A part-walled part-post-and-rail garden to the rear has fruit trees and has been used as a grass tennis court. A paddock has grazing and a little spinney divides it from the banks of the River Stour.
Burmington House sits within Burmington village which is located close to the border with north Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire on the edge of the Cotswolds. Shipston-on-Stour has good local shopping and amenities and is just two miles. Moreton-in-Marsh is just under six miles and London 90 minutes from the mainline train station there.
The guide price is £1m. For further information please contact Savills on 01295 228 004 or visit www.savills.co.uk.
