Large former Regency Rectory approx. 5106 sq ft ** Seven bedrooms and four reception rooms ** Gloriously situated in sought after village ** Finished to a very high standard ** Beautiful breakfast kitchen ** Mature private landscaped gardens ** Easy commute to London ** Impressive walled entrance

Description - The Grange is an unlisted and stunning former Regency Rectory, gloriously situated in the sought after village of Cadeby, Warwickshire.
The property offers all the benefits of country living with an easy commute from Nuneaton train station to London Euston in under an hour.

The Grange is finished to a very high standard, following an exacting and sensitive restoration and is very much a lovingly maintained family home.

Location - Cadeby is situated about a mile from the thriving and picturesque market town of Market Bosworth, which has a stunning park, canal, some fine Georgian architecture, Battlefield steam line, an active weekly market and a variety of shops, cafes and fine restaurants. It also offers an excellent range of local amenities including doctors, dentists, pharmacy and boutiques. Other amenities include the golf course, the Canal Wharf and swimming pool and leisure complex at Bosworth Hall Hotel.

Cadeby is within 2 miles of the site of the Battle of Bosworth, the Ashby Canal and Bosworth Water Park.

Locally, there are a variety of highly regarded state and private schools including the Dixie Grammar School and Twycross House Private School. Cadeby is also convenient for commuting to the neighbouring towns and cities of Leicester (11 miles), Nuneaton (10 miles), Coventry (20 miles), Birmingham (30 miles) and Nottingham (30 miles). The InterCity high-speed train from Nuneaton to Euston takes 59 minutes.

Historic Note - Prospective purchasers are advised that there is a full and fascinating documented history of the property that can be made available on request.

Although we know little of the exact dates, in William the Conquerors General Survey of England, the Domesday book, the Manor of Cadeby (or Catebi) is recorded as having a resident Priest since the 1220s and Rectors since 1385. Further research by a previous occupant shows that The Grange was most probably re-built on the site of what was likely to be the original Parsonage of the village, this occurred in the early nineteenth century with Archdeacon Bonney describing a New and Handsome Rectory in 1842.

Notes - The main part of the property was believed to have been constructed circa 1832. The sash windows have been markedly improved with the ventrolla system having an 84% efficiency comparison to double glazed.

The property currently has a high level security system including electric gates, CCTV Infrared camera system which can be monitored at any distance from a mobile phone or computer. There is also an alarm system which connects to a monitoring centre which then in turn contacts the owner as well as the police.

General Description - The Grange at Cadeby is a glamorous Regency property, offering flexible accommodation and retaining a wealth of original features. Graced with the high ceilings, magnificent sash windows and spacious rooms typical of the period, the house also benefits from two staircases and is unlisted, allowing for the option of a self-contained secondary apartment.

Set in manicured and established, private landscaped gardens, The Grange has been sympathetically refurbished, including complete redecoration, the installation of new showers and bathrooms and the construction of a stunning atrium kitchen that opens onto a beautifully appointed terrace and mature garden at the rear of the house.

The impressive walled entrance with electrically operated cast iron gates opens into a sweeping in and out driveway, featuring a stunning architectural central water fountain. The gardens and surrounds are cleverly planted with specimen shrubs and bushes.

Exterior carriage lanterns adorn the porch with grand double doors.

The elegant main entrance hallway features high ceilings, ceiling cornicing, splendid chandelier and particularly wide panelled doors, dado rails and high level skirting boards typical of the Regency period.
