An attractive two-bedroom cottage with conservatory, patio garden and garage. The property is located on a purpose-built retirement development for the over 55s. Management services are provided by Cognatum Estates, a not-for-profit organisation and one of the uk's leading companies in retirement housing.
Originally built as a hunting lodge for the Duke of Buccleuch in 1840, the hall and stable blocks of Dunchurch Hall have now been converted into apartments and cottages, with other cottages built on either side as wings to the main house. The estate has more than 10 acres of landscaped grounds, including an old cricket pavilion that has been refurbished for residents to use for social and other occasions. Beyond the grounds there is access to a private nature conservation area with a large fishpond.
The estate is just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Dunchurch, known for its half-timbered houses and thatched roofs, and it offers a good variety of shops, pubs and restaurants in addition to services such as a chemist, post office, doctor’s surgery, dentist and library. Rugby is just three miles away for major shopping and a mainline station. Local days out could include a visit to Coombe Country Park with its 500 acres of beautiful gardens and woodland, a look around the aircraft and aero engines on display at Midland Air Museum, or a walk in amongst the 14th-Century ruins at Caludon Castle Park, all of which are less than 12 miles from the estate.
Cognatum Estates maintains repairs and insures all the buildings, arranges the window cleaning and refuse collection and tends to the gardens and grounds thereby freeing owners and residents from these responsibilities. There is a personal alarm system in every property and a resident estate manager is available to provide support and a helping hand when needed. There is a laundry facility on-site and a guest suite is available for visitors. A minibus is provided for shopping trips and there are allotments for residents' use. The cost of providing these services is shared equally between all properties.
150 year lease (from 1997), no ground rent and 55+ age covenant.
