Seller Insight “We loved Willowbrook House from the moment we first looked through the gate. Our first impressions were very good, the house and gardens took our breath away and that was before we’d even gone inside! It’s an unusually shaped, beautiful looking house with lots of character and we think that it looks superb. Surrounded by trees, the drive up to it is just stunning and ends with a cattle grid which is a nice little feature,” say the current owners. “Set in a rural, countryside location, it’s very quiet with absolutely no noise and we would say that it’s actually the most peaceful house we’ve ever lived in. We’re surrounded by fields filled with horses and sheep and there are lots of lovely pubs nearby, all of which serve gorgeous food. We enjoy easy access to Stratford, Henley-in-Arden and Solihull and we’re right in the midst of everything that we could ever want.” “The garden is beautifully constructed from the front gate to the back garden. There is a large lawned area with colourful flower beds and there are lots of interesting features and fun to be had hiding amongst the trees and the bushes. It’s a lovely, secure space for our grandchildren to run around and they love to roly-poly over the little mound. We head through to the field from the rear garden where we like to relax in the summerhouse, it’s very private and secluded.” “There is a pretty little walk down to the ford which leads past our house and we often see the horses heading down there to splash around in the water. There are so many beautiful walks all around us and accessed right from our doorstep.” “We celebrated our son’s birthday party last year with 120 guests and a marquee in the garden. It was a beautiful day with a house and garden full of people. The house is perfect for outdoor and indoor entertaining and has plenty of parking.” “We’re moving to be closer to our family and it will be a wrench to leave. We will miss everything about the house and the garden, especially the peace and quiet.” *

We spend most of our time in the sun room which is beautiful at any time of the day, through into the evening. It overlooks the garden meaning that we can enjoy the outside space, no matter what the weather.�

The family bathroom has also been completely refurbished with a beautiful modern suite and exquisite tiling.

The Grounds Sitting within approximately 2 acres of stunning gardens, a pony paddock with a large pond, summer house and outbuildings, Willowbrook House benefits from unspoilt views in this most idyllic of locations. The spacious open patio offers a picturesque outlook to entertain and enjoy outdoor dining. Mature, welltendered borders and evergreens, give way to large lawned areas which sweep around the house and down to the high hedges that screen the main grounds from the paddock beyond. Discreetly hidden away from the main garden is also a vegetable patch and storage shed for the keen gardener and a lovely apple tree lined walk way across the top of the paddock leads back to the front gardens and driveway. Willowbrook House offers a large private driveway with ample parking, a double garage and is screened behind tall hedges and double gates
