“Few villages turn heads more than Broadway, on the borders of Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, often referred to as “the show village of England” because of its fine long street edged with honey-coloured stone cottages and undulating rooftops. It has attracted well-known artists including John Singer Sargent, who painted his luminous Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose here. Each year the village bursts into life with the Broadway Arts Festival, which is always an occasion to celebrate the association with Sargent. Andy and Claire Christie fell in love with it a decade ago and moved from Warwick town centre. “It is just so beautiful,” says Andy. “It has become the place to go for restaurants, bars and good food, but it also is very self-contained and has doctors, banks, a deli which sells local produce, in fact everything you need.” Their two girls, Liv, eight, and Jess, four, have known nothing else.
The house is a four-bedroom stone classic right on the famous High Street with dormer windows peeping through stone tiles. They are selling through Hayman Joyce at £775,000 to move to something bigger in the village. The Ashmolean Museum has just opened an outpost here, showing paintings by Gainsborough, Reynolds, Millais and Landseer, reminding us that artists as well as house buyers have been inspired by English villages.”
