Find property in Stratford upon Avon through a Buying Agent
Today’s smart money, property wise at least, is increasingly being concentrated on that corner of England we know as Shakespeare country, the ancient county of Warwickshire.
Perhaps not as immediately showy or as picture-postcard as its more fashionable neighbours, the Cotswold counties of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire, it is nevertheless quietly impressive, with its heart centred around the lovely town of Stratford upon Avon.
Finding property in Stratford upon Avon
Due to the town’s popularity with tourists and rich heritage, property in Stratford-upon-Avon is relatively expensive, with an average house price of over £452,678 as of 2021, according to Rightmove, significantly above the national house price average.
Within Stratford itself, the Old Town is one of the premium areas to live, thanks to its historic houses and Stratford’s leading landmarks. However, Shottery, Henley in Arden
and Wilmcote are popular nearby villages for those seeking more space and escape from the tourist hustle that the town attracts.
For those thinking of moving to Stratford upon Avon, you will find a region rich in heritage with a wide diversity of housing stock.
Choosing schools in Stratford
The county is also well served by very good schools, both state and independent, including Welford-on-Avon Primary and The Croft in Alveston are rated outstanding. The town also has two outstanding grammar schools. King Edward VI, Shakespeare’s school, and Stratford Girls‘ in Shottery.
Independent secondary schools include Princethorpe College, near Rugby to Warwick School & King’s High, Kingsley School for girls in Leamington Spa and Solihull School to Sibford School, in nearby Banbury.
Warwickshire’s central location just off the M40 means that you have quick and easy rail and road access to London and Birmingham as well as further afield to Manchester and Leeds. A direct route from Stratford-upon-Avon train station to London Marylebone via Chiltern Railways takes around 1hr 50 minutes.
