Nestled in a quiet back water setting in the heart of Shottery, a popular established village located to edge of Stratford upon Avon town centre. This attractive Grade II listed detached home, offers a discreet glimpse from the front elevation as to what lies beyond. Originally dating back to the 17th century, this period home has been later extended and improved over time, with most recent additions to include a sizable extension affording space for a stylish en-suite main bedroom. This completed a sympathetic restoration and wider modernisation works, that combined has created a truly inspirational home.
