Formerly an old farmstead, The Manor at Chestnut Rise Farm occupies a delightful, partly elevated situation taking full advantage of fine expansive views over Warwickshire countryside.
Privacy is ensured by the lack of public footpaths across the 11.75 acres within which the property sits.
The property is approached through impressive stone pillars via automatic gates along a sweeping tree lined drive terminating to the east of the house.
The property was constructed between 2000 and 2004 using a bespoke Border Oak frame beneath a roof comprising handmade clay tiles.
The exterior elevations echo the architecture of many local Elizabethan properties with the use of attractive handmade red bricks, rendered infill panels and timbers.
A charming feature of the property are the many leaded light lattice windows.
Both internally and externally the property incorporates the very finest materials in terms of general construction and general fit out.
The property incorporates an internal Bose sound system and Cat 5 cabling.
The property is fully alarmed and has security cameras.
The impressive living accommodation is set out over the lower, ground and first floors connected by an impressive curvilinear oak staircase.
On the ground floor are the principal reception rooms of the house including a magnificent reception hall with fine fireplace, an attractive drawing room with fitted cabinetry and a cut stone fireplace and a charming morning room.
