General Description - The Grey House combines history, style and period features yet modernity set in a particularly attractive quiet position close to the lovely parish church and only yards away from the very centre of this wonderful historic town. An excellent range of schooling is on offer within the town and close by.
So if it is traditional housing you are looking for but with all the work of restoration done, this fine part Renaissance house offers the answer. In 1994 the property was completely restored from top to toe and in all respects the process was sympathetic to the grade II listing in this conservation area. The main roofing was stripped and renewed, ceilings lowered to open up attic spaces, windows renovated or replaced. The interior was stripped back to bare walls and floor and ceiling carcasses and re-fitted to include new wiring plumbing and central heating plus the fitting out of bath/shower rooms and the stunning kitchen.
The accommodation is well balanced and there are the niceties of a larder, a cellar and an ironing/utility room. There is nothing to spend apart from introducing your own colour scheme if desired. This stylish home offers a comfortable and easy to live in internal environment.
In terms of convenience this is hard to better; a 70 metre stroll gets you to the shops in the centre of this quaint unspoilt historic town, a place of great history. There are a number of state and private schools nearby including the well regarded Dixie Grammar School and Twycross House School. The cities of Leicester, Nuneaton, Coventry, Birmingham and Nottingham are all within commuting distance and there is a train service to London from Nuneaton (fast 59 mins).
