One enters the property via a delightful full height atrium, which provides a real sense of space. The atrium is overlooked by a stunning orangery, which is perfect for those that enjoy entertaining, having a marble floor with plenty of space for a seating area and dining table. A separate drawing room is ideal for winter nights having a stunning fireplace housing a double sided wood burning stove.
The open plan kitchen breakfast family room has a range of wall and base units beneath a granite worktop with integrated appliances including an oven, microwave combi and a ceramic hob. A pantry, wine store, utility, study and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation. There is a discreet trap door under the atrium stairs which gives access to a large basement room that could be used in several exciting ways.
Special mention must go to the sizeable workshop, which could be utilised to create further accommodation. With bi-fold doors opening out to the rear patio and a shower room, this space would make for an excellent guest suite or further entertaining space.
The first floor accommodation mirrors the exacting standard of finish to the ground. A luxurious principal bedroom has a dressing room, en suite bathroom and access to a private roof terrace. The second guest bedroom also has an en suite bathroom and there are two further double bedrooms both with en suite wet rooms.
The house is accessed via a shared private lane leading to a gated driveway, which allows parking for several cars and gives access to the four-car garage. Situated above the garaging with access via an external staircase is the luxurious self-contained apartment/coach
house, perfect for guests or extended family. The gardens and grounds are beautifully well-stocked with a range of raised beds, decorative trees and shrubs. The Orangery is set within a delightfully landscaped lawn, with a planted bank sloping down to the rear courtyard with attractive stone walling and gravel which leads to a private patio area, sheltered and nestled closed to the property ideal for alfresco dining.
The main expanse of lawn lies to the east of the property, which has a variety of specimen trees including mature oak and yew trees. With the gardens being partly walled and enclosed via mature trees and hedging, the privacy The Orangery offers is difficult to rival.
Situated in the Capability Brown landscaped grounds of Compton Verney House, the historic seat of the Willoughby de Broke family and now a private art gallery and museum, The Orangery is one of a limited number of private houses on the estate.
The art gallery and museum of Compton Verney provides the most lovely setting with landscaped gardens, lake, woodland, specimen trees and wild flower meadows. The Orangery is well-placed for Warwick, Leamington Spa, Stratford-upon-Avon and Banbury. The Roman Fosse Way nearby gives ready access to the Cotswolds to the south. The M40 (J12 and 114) are about 5 and 7 miles respectively providing access to the motorway network, London and Birmingham with its International Airport.
