Property description

Constructed in the mid 1930's this delightful detached residence offers high quality accommodation which incorporates many lovely features and we fully recommend an inspection to appreciate this exceptional residence. The property has partial double glazing but retains many original leaded windows, extensive use of natural timbering including oak and yet at the same time incorporates all modern amenities. We believe this property coming onto the market represents a very rare opportunity to acquire a quality four bedroomed residence in this highly sought after residential location. The accommodation is of great interest with a practical layout and has the benefit of an efficient gas central heating system and burglar alarm. Briefly the accommodation includes an enclosed entrance porch, lobby leading onto a reception hallway, there is a fitted cloakroom with w.C. An exceptional 20ft lounge incorporating a 16ft long bay window leading out on the the rear terrace. In addition there

Perhaps the outstanding feature of the residence is the superb setting with very large fully landscaped garden grounds of the highest order and in fact there is double garaging with a gated access leading from an entrance onto Armorial Road at the rear.
We believe this property coming onto the market represents a very rare opportunity to acquire what is a lovely family home within a superb setting standing back from Stivichall Croft behind a shared access driveway within a tree-lined area and enjoying an outstanding rear aspect, yet conveniently situated just to the south of the city centre.
Stivichall Croft lies off Leamington Road only a few minutes distance from the city centre, King Henry VIII School, Coventry Railway Station and within a few minutes walk of the War Memorial Park.
