Vendor Interview - “I’d say that it was the setting that initially attracted us to the property when we happened upon it just over twenty years ago,” says the owner. “It enjoys this gorgeous rural location where it’s peaceful and private and the views are absolutely breathtaking, and yet everything we could possibly want or need is very close at hand. In short it offered us the very best of both worlds.” “A large portion of the grounds, probably around six acres, is dedicated to pastureland, but we also have a really beautiful formal garden, a lake that we had dug and then filled with Koi carp, a small orchard and a lovely kitchen garden from which we get an excellent crop of fruit and veg. It’s certainly an idyllic place to live.” “For us the setting has been absolutely ideal,” says the owner. “We’re surrounded by all of this glorious countryside so on a whim we can stick on our wellies and walk for miles. The transport links are also excellent, so getting to places such as Birmingham, Leicester or even London isn’t a problem, but at the end of the day we can shut the gate and enjoy this beautiful haven.” “Within the grounds we have a huge barn that’s absolutely ripe for conversion,” says the owner. “In my mind it would be perfect for a swimming pool, a games room or even a self-contained annex; the possibilities are endless.” “We’ve decided that the time is right to downsize, but we’ll definitely shed a few tears when the time comes to leave this beautiful home,” says the owner. “We held our wedding within the grounds and we’ve had some fabulous times with family and friends, so it’s a house that for us holds a great many fond memories. I think we’ll miss the cosy atmosphere within the house, the garden, the wildlife, the views and the sheer tranquility of our surroundings. It’s a property that definitely has the wow factor.
