Sundial House does, as it names suggests, have a sundial at the front of the property.
At the back it has another unusual feature in the form of the River Avon which runs along the bottom of the garden.
The house is in The Rookery, a quiet lane close to the centre of Alveston village in Warwickshire.
It is set back from the road behind a block paved driveway to the front and a mature, landscaped garden to the back leading down to the banks of the river.
The property has been subject to substantial extension and renovation work, resulting in a superbly appointed, contemporary-style home with a magnificent open-plan kitchen, living and family area that opens out to the gardens via bi-fold doors.
The quality and finish of the property continues throughout both the ground and first floor.
It starts with a spacious reception hall with solid wood flooring and contemporary part oak and glazed staircase rising to a part-galleried first floor landing. There is access from the hall to a study and to a guest cloakroom with toilet and basin.
The main reception space combines the living and family room with a beautifully appointed kitchen that includes a matching granite central island and built-in appliances, the whole of it above a polished limestone floor. The room enjoys views over the back gardens and the surrounding Warwickshire countryside.
Double doors lead into a large sitting and dining room with another area beyond which has bi-fold doors to the garden.
Off the kitchen area there is also access to a playroom with double doors to the garden .
Another door opens to a utility with more fitted units and storage.
Also on the ground floor there is a spacious garage.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms. The superb master bedroom suite has a walk-in wardrobe and double opening doors to a Juliet balcony overlooking the back of the property.
It has an en suite with wide shower, bath, toilet and basin.
Between bedrooms two and three there is an en suite with shower, toilet and basin.
Bedroom four has a door to a bathroom with bath, separate shower, toilet and basin which also has access from the landing.
All of the suites are finished to a similar high specification.
The mature gardens and grounds cover approximately 0.57 of an acre and reach down to the banks of the River Avon.
The village of Alveston lies only two miles from Stratford-upon-Avon and is bordered on three sides by the river. Set amid attractive Warwickshire countryside,. it has a wide range of character, period and modern cottages and houses, together with an historic church, village green and the highly regarded Ferry Inn.
