This classical late-1930s period property is set amidst wooded rolling countryside and lies between the Wroxall Abbey Estate and Kenilworth Castle. The property is set within its own grounds which totals to approx. 2.75 acres. The grounds include; well laid out and formal gardens, two paddocks, an orchard and an independent vehicular garaging and yard area.
This family home provides spacious and versatile accommodation and also has much potential for those wishing to put their own stamp on the living space. It is only a short drive to the many schools that Warwick and Leamington Spa have to offer and also falls within the catchment area for Kenilworth schools. Junior schools can be found in the nearby villages of Hatton and Lapworth.
The tarmac driveway leads through a pair of oak gates into a wide parking and turning area in front of the garage and dwelling house, with a further gateway through to the rear yard, with its own separate vehicular access onto the lane.
