Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A home of impressionable charm and historic interest.

Far Leys House has an undeniably attractive frontage to Bates Lane, a premier address within Tanworth in Arden. The characterful features offer a traditional feel within the property, which has been maintained excellently by one family for the last 30 some years. The stunning south facing gardens extend to some 2 acres.

The large in and out gated driveway leads to the separate 4 car garage, which has space above for use as a potential separate living area or home office. Accessed from the main house and pool complex, this is an exceptionally versatile space.

Accommodation to the main house offers a large welcoming hallway with inviting staircase, large fitted separate study, dining room, living room and garden room, family Smallbone kitchen, Butler's pantry, and guest cloakroom. To the first floor, which is also accessible by lift, there is a generous principal suite with separate dressing room and Smallbone ensuite, and three further bedrooms along with further Smallbone ensuite and family bathroom.

The inner hallway to the ground floor leads from the utility lobby through to the indoor swimming pool complex, having hand painted artwork, jacuzzi and changing room.

The south facing gardens are meticulously maintained and the rear terrace with steps down to the initial lawn area, provides wonderful opportunity for outside entertaining.

Far Leys House is uniquely a home of historical interest. Singer/songwriter Nick Drake spent much of his youth at the property, his family home of the 1960s. A blue commemorative plaque can be seen to the front wall of the property to this day. In the early 1920s Far Leys House was also home to Frederick Sanger CBE - "Fred" as he was commonly known, was considered to be one of the most influential scientists of the twentieth century - twice winning the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

Tanworth in Arden to this day offers appealing village life. Administered by Stratford upon Avon district council, the heart of Tanworth in Arden is traditionally centred around the most beautiful church green, with a most picturesque street scene of homes. Within walking distance to Far Leys House is The Bell, well renowned for its delicious food and cosy bar, ideal for a stop after a country walk or cycling adventure. The village train station operates local services to Birmingham and its shopping facilities at The Bullring centre and to Shakespeare's Stratford upon Avon. The NEC and Birmingham International Airport are just some 20 minutes away on the M42 yet this location is plentiful in country walks and community spirit.

Tanworth in Arden is well placed to serve commuters to wider locations and can be considered to serve as the gateway to more southerly locations from Lapworth to Stratford upon Avon.
