Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The popular village of Ullenhall is regarded as an outstanding location in which to reside, set amongst greenbelt countryside, yet well placed for easy access to the M42, M40 and M5, as well as Birmingham International Railway Station, Airport and the NEC. Ullenhall is a village settlement and one of the old clearings made in the Forest of Arden. The village has an active village hall, nursery school and play group. The old and historic market town of Henley in Arden is about two miles distant and thus offers a wide range of shopping facilities, together with regular bus and train services, private junior and infant schools, banks, inns and restaurants. There are also churches of various denominations and sporting and recreational organisations. 

Grovewood is situated along the ridge at Ullenhall and as such enjoys a spectacular setting with stunning and far reaching views over Warwickshire countryside.

The property situated in just over 60 acres of gardens and woodland and is approached via a long tarmacadam driveway through a timber five-bar gated entrance, with inset lawn and there are gardens and paddocks extending to approximately 24 acres and to the west there is approximately 36 acres of mature woodland with rides and a mass of bluebells in the spring.

The drive leads to the front of the property and also to the rear outbuildings, providing a sizeable parking area. There is a detached five car garage block with a self contained apartment above which is presently used as a home office, plus recreation room/gym but also has a kitchen area and occasional bedroom.

A further detached garage could house up to five more vehicles and has an adjacent gardener's room and shower room off.

To the south there are up to 20 acres of permanent pasture land, paddocks and fields surrounded by post and rail fencing and thorn hedging.

An important feature of the property is the 36 acre mature wood with oak, pine and birch trees as well as Rhododendrons. There are rides and paths providing lovely walks at all times of the year.
