Description

  • House - detached
  • 7 Bedrooms
  • 4 Bathrooms
A beautifully presented five/seven bedroom detached property situated in one of the most sought after roads on the outskirts of Coventry. The property was built between 1935 - 1936 and was apparently one of the first properties to be built on the road. This superb residence sits in approximately 0.53 of an acre and offers a large hallway, snug, lounge, orangery, large refitted kitchen breakfast room with family area, dining room, utility room, garden room and an attached annexe which has a large open plan kitchen and living area, two double bedrooms, shower room, cloakroom, utility room and a study. Overall this property offers approximately 4,460 sq. ft. of accommodation. This light and wonderfully size family home must be viewed internally to be appreciated.

This well placed property sits within easy reach of Kenilworth, Coventry and Leamington Spa. The position boasts easy access to Warwick University, A45, A46 and Birmingham airport. The railway station in Coventry is just over three miles away and offers regular trains to London which takes just under an hour.

The current owners purchased the property over nineteen years ago and in that time have enjoyed living and updating the property whilst raising their four children here. The owners have decided to sell as they feel it is time to downsize as their children have now left home. When the property was initially bought the separate annexe was an indoor swimming pool with changing rooms - the property now offers a suspended oak floor over what was the swimming pool so could potentially be converted back into a swimming pool and changing rooms. The annexe benefits from its own gas combination boiler and separate electrics. A full wall of windows and doors overlooking the rear garden makes the annexe light and airy and, as it has its own door and access around the side of the garden, it can be used completely as its own area. The whole property benefits from large windows which give the property a lot of natural light, the whole plot benefits from a private and secluded position.

N B
The property has a large septic tank which is emptied once a year and costs about £150 to empty. The current owners have benefited from having a septic tank as it has reduced their water costs as they do not pay for used water charges or surface water drainage.

The Annexe could run as a separate entity as it has its own door and the property has side access and outside wall lights which lead from the front gate to the annexe entrance door.
