There is a wide selection of schools in the area, including Staverton CE Primary School, Bilton Grange Prep School in Dunchurch, Winchester House in Brackley, Arnold Lodge and Kingsley High School for Girls in Leamington Spa, Rugby High School for Girls, Rugby School, Warwick Prep and Public School and Northampton High School.
The property, which sets centrally within its own land, is believed to date from the 1930’s, and has been in the same family ownership for over 30 years, and now offers huge potential to create a fabulous family home, with established secondary accommodation, and the opportunity to extend and improve further.
The extensive range of outbuildings, and Q class permission to create further accommodation provide scope to create a unique multi dwelling property.
It will appeal to a number of purchasers, be it families wanting a very special country home; motor enthusiasts with potential workshops and garaging, or for equestrian purposes with existing stables and paddock land, and space to expand further.
The imposing property is well proportioned, with some period character features throughout.
The entrance porch opens to a spacious entrance hall, which leads to the dual aspect drawing room with a feature fireplace. The dining room and sitting room both overlook the gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room has an adjacent pantry/utility room, and a side access to the garden.
On the first floor the master bedroom has a range of built in wardrobes, and lovely views over the gardens and fields beyond towards Shuckburgh. There are five further bedrooms (one currently used as a study). There are also two separate bathrooms and good loft storage.
Grounds and gardens
The property is approached via a private mature tree lined driveway, giving a real sense of arrival. To the front there is a turning circle and plenty of space for parking, along with a large double garage.
The well maintained gardens, mainly to the south with established and mature planting. There are lawned areas, a terrace, and various seating areas all to relax and enjoy the countryside surroundings. A vegetable patch, with greenhouse, and a croquet lawn provide additional areas to relax and unwind. A veranda is situated to the side of the property, providing another relaxing seating area.
A detached brick barn conversion comprising a kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room, two bedrooms and bathroom, with parking and private gardens. This could be used for either ancillary or guest accommodation or indeed be let out to tenants for additional income.
Q Class Planning Permission
This was granted on the former Hay Barn on the 21st December 2020, by Daventry District Council, under ref PD/2020/0064 for ‘Prior approval for change of use of agricultural building to dwelling and associated building operations (Class Q A and B)’. Further details available from the Selling Agents.
In addition there are several other very useful and versatile outbuildings, including a barn with workshop and office, that has successfully been used as a ‘party barn’, and would lend itself very well to a motor enthusiast’s workshop, or similar.
The equestrian facilities
There is currently a useful stable block and adjoining tack room, with a nearby large area of concrete hardstanding, being the site of former poultry buildings, that could be further utilised, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
The land wraps around the house, and is all laid to grass. The land is generally stockproof and provides useful grazing paddocks for livestock or horses. The land benefits from stream frontage on the southern boundary, and a small area of tree planting on the roadside boundary. Addtional 6 acres available by seperate negotiation.
