Full description

With its extremely popular village location, this large character property with its far reaching views of the countryside must be seen to appreciate what is on offer. With significant gardens, 6 receptions and 5 bedrooms, it offers a charming residence to someone who wants the semi-rural lifestyle but still requires the convenience of the main road networks being not too far away.

Accomodation - The property has a large downstairs footprint with six receptions to include a gamesroom/bar, drawing room, sitting room, playroom off the kitchen, kitchen/diner, dining room, office, utility room and W.C.

Upstairs there are 5 bedrooms with a master ensuite and also a family bathroom.

Vendor Interview - This attractive double gable red brick former farmhouse, which mainly dates from the nineteenth century, is located in the village of Orton-on-the-Hill. The house has five bedrooms and is set back from the road in grounds of approximately one acre, which include a detached double garage at the rear.

Watling House has been the current owners family home for more than 30 years. They were originally attracted by the light, high ceilinged and spacious rooms of the house and by the propertys position in a quiet village that was centrally located for access to workplaces in Leicester and Birmingham.

The owners have not made any major alterations to the configuration of the house other than add en-suite facilities to the master bedroom by incorporating part of the fifth bedroom. The kitchen and family bathroom have been fully refurbished in recent.

On the ground floor, the main front entrance opens to a hallway that has a sitting room on the left and a drawing room on the right, both have open fireplaces with marble surrounds. The drawing room occupies the full depth of the house and has sliding doors opening to the rear garden. There is also a play room with a cloakroom, a utility room, and a large kitchen that also stretches the full depth of the house. On the further side of the kitchen there are three interconnecting rooms comprising a front aspect dining room, a study and a bar to the rear.

A lobby from the dining room opens to a private and secluded front courtyard, which was added by the current owners. The front driveway, which has planted borders, curves around the other side of the house and leads past the formal part of the rear garden to a double garage. The formal rear garden includes an area of lawn with a lovely flower bed that can be viewed from the drawing room. Further planted beds flank an extensive flagstone patio area and a natural pond that is fed by pumped water from a covered well. Beyond the driveway and the garage, there is a further garden area, which is mainly laid to lawn.

Orton on the Hill has a church and a pub but a mobile butcher services the village and there is a convenience shop in the neighbouring village of Austrey and Warton. A primary school is located in nearby Sheepy Magna and there is a bus service to the secondary school at Market Bosworth, while the much sought after private Twycross House School is just two miles away. Supermarkets can be found in Atherstone, Tamworth and Ashby. Rail links are provided by stations in Atherstone, Tamworth and Nuneaton, and there is easy access to the A5, A444 and the M42 and the motorway network. Leicester, Nottingham and Birmingham are readily accessible from this quiet rural location.

Location - The property is approximately 3.5 miles from J11 of the M42 with easy access to the M1, M6, Birmingham airport and East Midlands airport. Numerous well regarded private and public schools are also within the region.
