A Dashing Dwelling Lists in Shakespeare’s Birthplace Stratford-upon-Avon

For many enchanted by Shakespeare’s poetic plays, dynamic characters, and the words he brought into existence, visiting Stratford-upon-Avon is surely on the bucket list. This medieval town in England is where William Shakespeare was born and where he died after a long and groundbreaking career. Even better than simply eyeing the famous playwright’s old stomping grounds, now it can become your hometown, too. Listed with the guiding price of approximately $2.2 million, this rustic yet sleek home on two acres is the quintessential English manor with modern twists. To buy or not to buy, that is the question.

Known as Clifford Farm House, this 4,047-square-foot abode has not been standing there since Shakespeare’s day. In fact, it is all new and built with impeccable craftsmanship.

The bespoke kitchen, mix of materials used on the exterior, and open spaces create a contemporary feel with the countryside views always adding charm. The rural property has gardens and paddocks, and a patio where a new owner can take it all in while dining alfresco. Comparing someone to a summer’s day here would certainly be the highest compliment.

As well as offering five bedrooms and four bathrooms, the home has luxurious perks like an electric car charging station, a Sonos sound system, and a bioethanol fireplace. It’s innovative yet enchanting, a balance Shakespeare knew how to strike as well.
