    About this property

    • Priorswell is a lovely period house constructed of iron stone and brick under a tile roof.

      The house has been in the same family for just over 50 years and has been much loved and enjoyed in that tenure. Having been extended and improved over the years, the house provides spacious accommodation, perfect for a family. Whilst it has been well cared for, it is in need of some modernisation, thereby allowing the incoming purchaser to stamp their own identity on it.

      Light and spacious drawing room with bay window to front and French windows to the terrace and garden to rear. Lovely kitchen/breakfast room with two oven oil fired Aga and a range of built in units. Here there is space for a breakfast table; the kitchen very much serves as the hub of the house. From the kitchen there is a useful rear hall and doorway, which provides the day to day access for family, deliveries and to the main rear garden. There is a useful pantry off the rear hall and doorway to the study, which is perfect for a playroom, home office or winter snug. Away from the kitchen towards the main entertaining room there is a further spacious reception room, currently used as a dining room, with access to the garden through French doors. There is also access to the main hall and staircase.

      Most of the rooms on the ground floor have dual aspect to the front and rear (which is south-east facing).

      Upstairs, the theme of light continues with aspects from most of the rooms over the gardens to the front and rear. Bedroom one is a generous size, featuring extensive built in wardrobes and an en suite shower. There are three further bedrooms to be enjoyed, as well as a family bathroom and separate WC.

      Adjoining the house is a double garage with workshop area, light and power connected. Beyond there is parking for several cars on the private driveway.

      The garden is a key element to Priorswell. To the front is an area of lawn bordered by box hedging and lovely mature Magnolia tree, rose beds and two herbaceous borders. A pedestrian gate and gravel path leads to the front door. To the rear an extensive paved and gravelled terrace runs the length of the house, ideal for summer entertaining. From here you get a full vista of the rear garden and grazing beyond. The garden really opens up rising gently up the hill and is predominately laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and beds, interspersed with a variety of mature trees and shrubs. Beyond is a lovely orchard area planted with a variety of fruit trees. There is a useful garden shed to one side, previously used as a garden store and boat house.

      A post and rail fence divides the garden from the paddock which has fence and hedge boundaries and extends to just under two acres. From here one has a fantastic view out across the village and Warwickshire countryside beyond. As well as giving space and protection, the paddock would be ideal for a pony or four legged friend.

    Rarely do you find a house with such generous gardens and paddock grazing. I think it is utterly charming, giving wonderful feelings of space and privacy.
