Having lived in this incredible house now for 14 years it is hard to think that we almost didn't come to look at it! exclaims Joy Originally built in 1800 as barns and a grain store they were converted into a superb modern home about 23 years ago. It's a tremendous conversion - so different from what one would expect and so utterly unique. The house is set back from the road and the gardens stretch out from the patios to the orchard and the countryside beyond, adds Nick It's a wonderfully peaceful and tranquil place to come home to, and something we have all appreciated so very much. Coventry and Rugby are just 7 miles away, so easy to access and yet when I reach the entrance of the house, the pressure and demands of the business world feel a million miles away. The transport links around us were indeed one of the great advantages of this location; the M6, M69 and M1 are all so easily reached. The mainline rail station at Rugby has a regular service to London and I can be in the city centre in about 1 hour, which has also been of huge benefit for business purposes.
The Beeches has been such a wonderful place to live and has exceeded all of our expectations, continues Joy it is an easy house to live in as there is so much space and absolutely perfect for family celebrations and any kind of entertaining, be it inside or out in the grounds. There is space enough for everyone to be together and there is certainly enough space to find a quiet place to be on your own to drift with own thoughts. The courtyard is such a delightful and unusual aspect of the house and is another wonderfully private and sheltered outside area - absolutely perfect for breakfast or a morning cup of coffee. The amount of space this house offers is incredibly deceiving, says Nick and our guests are always astonished at the way rooms, living areas and grounds just seem so open up before them. The Beeches has been a house full of family life and a home in the truest sense, supporting all the demands a modern family requires and expects with absolute ease. I know we shall miss this extremely special place, it has been the most wonderful place to come home to and it is going to be a most difficult place to leave, and to think we almost nearly didn't come to see it - I am so very glad that we did!
