Full description

This double fronted detached house stands on a fine wide and versatile corner plot in the popular Canley Gardens area of the city.

The only way to appreciate the family accommodation on offer is by an early internal inspection.

For the road user, the A45 links with Birmingham and the M6 to the north west together with London and the M1 to the south east. Local schools serve the area but private schools such as King Henry VIII and Bablake are popular options as well. The War Memorial Park is approximately 1.25 miles away, Hearsall Golf Course is readily accessible and the important towns of Kenilworth, Warwick and Leamington Spa are easily accessible to the south.
