Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Cawston Manor is located on the outskirts of the market town of Rugby, two miles from the town centre and Rugby School. It is an extremely adaptable detached property that has been skilfully rebuilt and extended by award winning Parker Lake Homes six years ago from the bare walls of the original house with six/seven reception rooms, an orangery, seven/eight bedrooms and gardens with an electrically gated entrance and grounds extending to 1.3 acres.

The property has a variety of uses as it has residential and commercial planning approval. At present it has three self-contained apartments (one ground floor and two first floor) with independant access or internal if preferred, which could easily be converted back to the main house creating seven to ten bedrooms.

You enter the property through panelled double doors into a spacious open plan reception/dining hall. There are two further reception rooms, one being an ante-room connected by an exquisite glass door and the other a library entered through matching double glass doors.The original drawing room has double and single entrance doors and is currently divided into two rooms but is easily restored by removal of a single partition. Dual French windows provide access to the patio and gardens.

The extremely large kitchen/family room has triple aspect windows with state of the art German kitchen units and appliances.The ground floor also has a utility room, a bathroom and two cloakrooms in addition to a very impressive orangery with five double French windows affording views over the gardens and fields beyond.On the first and second floors there are seven double bedrooms serviced by five bathrooms. Three bedrooms have fitted wardrobes.two guest apartments are accessed by private separate spiral staircases. One consists of a spacious lounge with integral kitchen, master bedroom with dressing room and en suite bathroom, second bedroom with fitted wardrobes and adjacent bathroom. The other apartment has a lounge with French windows accessing the large rear balcony with panoramic views of open countryside. It has a separate kitchen, shower room and double bedroom with fitted wardrobes. One or both of the apartments could easily be incorporated into the main property.

To the rear of the house there is a 1600sq.ft brick built barn with planning for commercial and ancillary accommodation, which, with the addition of a mezzanine floor would extend to more than 2000sq.ft. The barn has power and lighting connected and presents a very interesting re-development opportunity and potential income of approximately £12,000 per annum. The apartments have, to date, achieved an income of £22,000 per annum.

The property is approached through electronically operated ornate gates supported by two pillars lit by light sensitive period lanterns leading to an enclosed courtyard parking area to the front. A range of mature trees and laurel bushes provide a backdrop across the front boundary. The splendid façade is tastefully illuminated by a period lamppost, external lanterns and floodlights that also light the magnificent specimen sycamore tree.

The internal double garage is presently used as a self-contained annexe with a bathroom and three partitioned rooms that could easily be restored if required. Alternatively, there is adequate room on the east side to build a triple garage subject to planning approval.
