Stratford Upon Avon is a market town and civil parish in Warwickshire on the River Avon 101 miles north west of London, 22 miles south east of Birmingham and 8 miles south west of Warwick. The town is a popular destination owing to its status as the birthplace of the English playwright and poet William Shakespeare and receives approximately 2.5 million visitors a year. The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) resides in Stratford's Royal Shakespeare Theatre which is a short drive and easy walk from the business premises.
Stratford is 22 miles from the UK's second largest city Birmingham and is easily accessible from Junction 15 of the M40 motorway.
Stratford railway station has good rail links from Birmingham and from London with up to seven direct trains a day from London Marylebone.
The business is perfectly situated close to the town centre and all its attractions in a main road position and thus benefitting from high levels of footfall and passing trade. The business is well signed and beautifully presented and maintained. There is free on street parking nearby as well as customer parking behind the premises.
This business needs to be viewed to appreciate both the size of the accommodation and the quality of the fittings throughout. From the front, the mid terraced Victorian property looks traditional but in this case the exterior really is quite deceiving. The house is in one part a beautiful Victorian villa with a wealth of original features but to the rear has been extended at considerable cost and is presented in a beautifully presented ultra-modern finish that is quite breath-taking and unexpected.
The business is perfectly situated on a main road, entered via the lovely front garden. Wrought iron railings and gate to front, Victorian black and red chequerboard pathway, established borders with low box edging, brick built pond/water feature with gravelled (grey slate chipping) to front, coach lamp, canopied porch leading to original Victorian part glazed door with stained glass.
High ceiling with ornate original coving to ceilings, Victorian plaster corbels, restored "Minton" Floor, door to kitchen and dining room, stairs to first floor with lovely original balustrades.
For guest use, bay window to front creating a light and airy interior, high ceilings with intricate ceiling cornice and picture rail, dado rail, deep original skirting, ornate plaster ceiling rose, tables and chairs providing 12 covers but room for more if required.
