CLEEVE PRIOR is an attractive and sought after Worcestershire village close to the Warwickshire border and lies approximately 2½ miles from Bidford-on-Avon which offers good local amenities, whilst Stratford-Upon-Avon and Evesham offer a wider range of facilities. The village has a Church, Village Hall, Inn (The Kings Arms), Junior and Infant School and farm shop.
Set in approaching five acres of gardens, grounds and adjoining field, a detached five bedroom house and adjacent two bedroom cottage. Grade II listed elegant accommodation in excess of 5,000 sq.ft., with an additional stone barn of 950 sq.ft. Thought of great interest to equestrian, smallholders and work from home buyers seeking a beautiful family house, cottage, barn and land.
The main accommodation is thought to date from the late 17th century and the cottage likely to date from the 1870s/1880s. The barn is believed to originate from around 1830. Thought to appeal to a broad audience seeking a spacious period village residence with the flexibility of the use of the barn for home working, studio, gymnasium or potential rental income all subject to any necessary permissions and regulations.
The land offers an equestrian or smallholding dimension or simply a place to walk the dogs or keep horses as the stables and outbuildings facilitate broad use. There are many walks around the village and beyond, together with bridlepaths for hacking out.
It is perhaps the combination of the quality of the position, accommodation, flexibility of the adjoining cottage for extended family or income, land, and the huge potential afforded by the barn, that make The Laurels an exciting proposition for elegant, stylish, family living and early interest is anticipated.
