Vendor comments


When people ask where we live and we tell them, so many say, excitedly, " But that's my Favourite House " and others joke "When I win the Lottery I am buying your house ". It is a real landmark. Passers-by frequently stop to take photographs and compliment us on having such a beautiful house.
We are so very fortunate to have lived in this wonderful home for the past 31 years. With no immediate neighbours, it has everything, privacy without being secluded and as the front of the house is not hidden behind trees it is very secure. We have many happy memories of parties and family gatherings over the years. It is a great home for entertaining and surrounded by beautiful Green Belt land, it is lovely to watch the seasons change. We will miss living here very much.
We love the location in that it is semi-rural but at the same time incredibly convenient for Coventry, Birmingham and the motorway network.

Imagine, inviting family and friends to a summer swimming party in the heated indoor swimming pool, barbecuing on the terrace, taking afternoon tea in the rose scented garden and celebrating Christmas around the roaring log fire in the huge drawing room, followed by dinner in the spectacular, formal dining room, complete with dumb waiter. Who could fail to be impressed?

The vendors have tastefully extended and re- designed the house throughout to include a self contained guest wing/annexe, with its own access and driveway providing large kitchen/diner, downstairs cloakroom with WC, sitting room, lobby with staircase rising to landing with shower room and bedroom.

The main house consists of hall with staircase to first floor double gallery landing accessing dining room with dumb waiter from kitchen below, a further 5 bedrooms, main family bathroom and Jack and Jill bathroom to master bedroom and guest room.
A spiral staircase rises from the snug with working fireplace to large bedroom, suitable for teenager or conversion to games room or home cinema. 27 ft Drawing room with working fireplace and magnificent bespoke fire surround.
Further reception rooms include large hall, morning room, library and study.
