Vendor Interview - Set in the heart of the pretty village of Shilton and within just a few minutes from the centre of Coventry, this charming property has been the subject of an inspirational conversion from what once was a farm building for milking cows into this delightful home. The property was on land owned and farmed by the same family for many years. Its first conversion in 2001 was into an artists studio and, subsequently, a major project was undertaken to convert the property into this, captivating, two bedroom cottage. The main living area, with its delightful vaulted ceiling is spacious, bright and comfortable. It is such a welcoming and friendly room, with a layout ideal for social gatherings and it is not unusual for eight people to sit comfortably around the dining table. The Master bedroom is quite special. It is roomy with a high beamed ceiling and contains beautiful fitted oak storage units, constructed by the same carpenter who did other work in the house. The neat garden, with its patio, is brilliant for summer occasions.

In addition the Oxford canal is a pleasant fifteen minute walk away to enjoy strolling along its towpath and watching the longboats passing by. The village is conveniently located to an excellent choice of amenities from shops, public transport, schools, railway stations, airports, with Birmingham, Leicester and Nuneaton being within easy reach. The sociable pub, The Shilton Arms, is just two minutes from the house, with other excellent restaurants and gastro pubs being located nearby.

When the conversion was taking place, the owners were painstaking in their quest to ensure that the house contained all modern day comforts. Original oak roof beams have been retained, with recycled oak floorboards being fitted in the spacious kitchen/dining/ living room. An artisan carpenter was employed to design and construct several items of fitted furniture, together with oak doors which are a feature throughout the house. It has been the much loved, convenient, family retreat and for several years a younger family member has occupied the cottage until her relocation to another part of the country. The cottage has been used regularly over the years for family gatherings, and the owners have strong, emotional, ties to the cottage, the village and its surroundings. However, the family now live in a different part of the country and it is time for the cottage to enjoy new ownership
