Norton Lindsey is a fabulous semi rural village with nearby Claverdon providing an excellent range of local amenities with shops for everyday needs, junior and infant school, doctors surgery, village hall and railway station. It is particularly well placed for access to the M40 motorway and the centres of Warwick, Leamington Spa, Coventry, Henley in Arden, Solihull, Stratford upon Avon and Birmingham. Furthermore, the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station are also within easy driving distance.


DESCRIPTION Longeaves has been the subject of complete refurbishment and extensive modernisation by the present owners, both internally and externally and now offers a beautifully appointed and well-proportioned family home. Nestled within the village of Norton Lindsey this attractive family home occupies a most delightful rural location, yet easily accessible to excellent local villages and amenities. The property is discretely hidden from the road behind a Yew hedgerow and a gravel driveway opens to provide ample parking and leads to a large detached garage.

Once inside, a welcoming reception hallway with oak strip flooring creates a warm ambience and radiates to the prime reception rooms, which are equally suited to family living and entertaining. The well-appointed breakfast kitchen in line with today's modern living style has plenty of space for informal dining and leads seamlessly into the family room. The kitchen has a range of hand painted cream shaker style units, underneath hardwood worktops and integrated appliances include a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, Aga and is complete with a wonderful full-height, fully fitted larder cupboard. French windows provide the room with an abundance of natural light and enjoys fabulous views of the garden and just off the kitchen is a good sized utility and guest cloakroom.

The family room is made warm and cosy with a continuation of the oak strip flooring, a focal-point contemporary log effect burner within a feature brick fireplace and a large bay window makes it a light and airy room. A separate dining room is also a generous size and perfect for family gatherings and formal entertaining and across the hallway is a useful study. The large dual aspect drawing room takes full advantage of views to both front and rear and enjoys a feature log burning stove.

The galleried landing gives access to a principal bedroom suite with a beautifully equipped English Heritage en suite bathroom, together with a further guest bedroom with en suite and three additional attractively presented double bedrooms together with a beautifully appointed family bathroom.

To complement this country residence are superbly landscaped gardens that form a wonderful idyllic setting, with paved York stone terrace areas to seat summer furniture for al fresco dining. The gardens are principally laid to lawn and contain a fine selection of attractive specimen trees and evergreens to create privacy and profusely stocked flower borders provide plenty of colour and interest. There are fabulous views to the rear of the garden over open Warwickshire countryside and here then lies a charming family home in a private rural setting.
