Tenure: Leasehold

The Convent resides in a truly rare setting, situated in the delightful village of Lapworth.

Lapworth is a highly sought after location, behind the facades of beautiful historic buildings lies a long established community with a number of Gastropubs and restaurants, a local wine merchant, village store, post office and infant schools.

The Convent is within close proximity to Lapworth and Warwick Parkway Railway Station both of which provide excellent public transport links to all local urban centres including Birmingham, Solihull, Warwick, Royal Leamington Spa and of course London. Not to mention easy connections to the M40, M42 and M6 motorways.

The house at Baddesley Clinton, now a National Trust property, was the home of the Ferris family who remained within the Catholic faith after the Reformation.

By the mid 17th Century, the house at Baddesley Clinton had become the headquarters of the Franciscan Fathers of the Second English Province (separate from the Ferris home). in 1850, a group of Poor Clares nuns arrived from Bruges. The south range of the sisters' lodgings was added in 1878. Both an open and a closed order resided at The Convent, comprising up to forty nuns.

English Heritage recently designated the convent as a conservation area: "These buildings are clearly of historical significance and represent a largely unaltered collection of late 19th Century buildings set within their own grounds."

All properties at The Convent are individual, each with its own secret heritage and historic architecture. Original features have been retained including gothic arches, stained glass windows and cathedral ceilings. The focal point of The Convent is the secluded and picturesque courtyard with cherry trees and fountain.

St. Clare is an exceptional building in the formal part of The Convent where the open order of nuns engaged with the general public. This exceptional building includes a wonderful dual aspect formal lounge with a gorgeous private walled rear garden. Briefly affording a wonderful dual aspect lounge, stunning breakfast kitchen/dining room with separate utility, guest cloakroom, master bedroom with dressing area and en-suite facility plus two further double bedrooms and family bathroom. Externally, the property has a generous private walled rear garden and garage.
