Warwickshire period farmhouse in need of restoration

College Farmhouse is an ideal opportunity for those looking for a period property project in Warwickshire. The house is listed Grade II and dates back to 1605 – it was originally owned by Magdalen College Oxford.

Inside, from the old boarded front door a flagged reception hall with mullion leaded window leads through to the reception rooms which include the sitting room with open fireplace and beamed ceiling, drawing room with inglenook fireplace and a charming kitchen/breakfast room.

Upstairs the first floor has three bedrooms and a bathroom while a loft hatch with ladder provides access to the second floor – three attic rooms are currently unconverted but this floor could easily accommodate two bedrooms and a further bathroom.

Outside the gardens are situated on three sides of the property with mature shrubs and herbaceous borders and lawned sections with paths. To the rear is a good space for either a play area or a kitchen garden. Outbuildings for storage are located to the rear.

College Farmhouse is located in the small village of Willington just outside Shipston-on-Stour in Warwickshire, on the edge of the north Cotswolds. Shipston has very good local amenities and further afield are Stratford-upon-Avon and Banbury for further facilities. Trains to London depart from Moreton-in-Marsh which is just less than seven miles from the house.

The guide price is £565,000. For further information please contact Jackson-Stops & Staff on 01386 840224 or visit
