Radway is a much sought after village located at the base of the historic Edgehill, being approximately 9 miles to Banbury, 13 to Leamington Spa and 6 miles to junction 12 of the M40. There is a church, riding stables and village green. Mainline railway stations are located in Banbury, Warwick and Leamington Spa.
Church Cottage is set well back from the quiet roadway behind the long private gardens. At the front of the gardens, nearest the roadway is a corrugated iron garage which is bigger than the average single garage. This is accessible for parking however, the road is so quiet that there is generally the option to park on the road itself.
Entry to the cottage is via an external porch with pitched roof. This provides shelter over the main front door which in turn leads through into the inner hallway with straight staircase in front and split access to further ground floor accommodation.
The sitting room is a lovely square room which gives a lovely social feel to the layout of the space. The general feel of the room is in keeping with the age and character of the property having an open fireplace and traditional window seat. This is also a brighter room than you would usually expect for an older stone property thanks to dual aspect windows, allowing the entry of a lot of natural daylight.
To the other side of the staircase there is a dining room which is big enough for a large table. There is a door from here to a rear porch which gives access to a downstairs cloakroom with W.C. and a separate door leading out to the rear courtyard.
From the dining room also is a door into the kitchen which first reaches the adjoined utility area. This has space, power and plumbing for white goods such as a washing machine and fridge / freezer as is currently being used within this area.
Following this space round the corner brings you into the main kitchen extension where there is a range of base and wall mounted units. The kitchen may warrant updating in terms of style however, it is fully functioning and doesn’t need immediate redress.
Finally downstairs, leading off the kitchen is the garden room extension which is south-west facing making it a superb space to sit and enjoy the glorious front garden. The construction of this room makes it a usable space all the year round. There is a stable door leading directly out to the garden and a nice spacious ceiling height.
To the first floor you will find three well-proportioned bedrooms, all of which would house a double bed and with fitted wardrobe space in both the main two bedrooms. Also to the first floor is a three piece family bathroom which may need replacing.
Garden and Grounds
The majority of the garden space can be found to the front of the property. This area is fairly private, very quiet and can be enjoyed much in the same way as most traditional rear gardens. It consists of a mixture of lawn areas, well established and stocked herbaceous borders and even a decorative pond.
As the gardens wrap around the property, to the rear is a courtyard with gate to the church grounds and two brick-built outhouses with an outside W.C.
The property offers mains water, electricity and drainage connection. There is an oil fired central heating system installed. (No tests to the suitability of services have been carried out and intending purchasers should commission their own tests if required).
Fixtures and fittings
Only those items mentioned in these sales particulars are included in the sale. All carpets, curtains, light fittings, garden ornaments etc., are specifically reserved from the sale. These may be purchased by separate negotiation.
Separate Purchase of allotment
There is an opportunity to purchase a small separate piece of land just across the road from the property. For more information please contact Bishops.
By prior appointment only with the agents.
Estate Agent’s Comments
Opportunities like this simply don’t come along very often. This is a great property set in an excellent village and with scope for additional improvement. It is set in a quiet location well back from the quiet roadway and is larger than it looks from the outside.
With all this taken into account we recommend an internal viewing on this lovely stone-built cottage.
