appreciate the size and the quality of the accommodation on offer.

Rarely do properties with this level of character come to the open market! Occupied by its current owners for the last 15 years, The Dovecote, is a stunning barn conversion which blends a wealth of character features with an abundance of space both inside out. The accommodation has a lovely flow and plenty of light throughout both the ground and first floor, to the rear of the property there are a total of 5 sets of external doors - perfect for the summer months, and a large open inglenook fireplace in the dining room, perfect for the colder winter months.

'Vendor Comment'
We bought the house as it is unique and full of character, it is deceptively large inside and easily housed our growing teenage children. The location is great for schools, motorway and airport access and leisure including canal-side walks and good pubs. London is less than an hour by train from Nuneaton (15 minute drive). In the summer the 5 sets of external doors make for an airy and light space while in the winter, the large open fire in the dining room makes for a cosy experience. The house has two broadband lines (50 & 80mb) respectively.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation comprises a truly spectacular dining room with inglenook fireplace, a spacious sitting room with two oak joists, and a former manger running along the rear wall. Double doors open from the sitting room to the generously proportioned office, perfect for use in its current form, or for adaptation to create additional living/entertainment space. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a snug area with exposed brick walls and a feature fireplace and the heart of the home, the open-plan, living kitchen with a quarry tiled floor, heavily beamed ceiling and a gas-fired Aga! Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room with a range of base units and a porcelain sink!

The first-floor accommodation is accessed via two separate staircases. The master bedroom is serviced by its own staircase and has the benefit of its own luxurious bathroom suite a with roll-top bath. A second staircase rises from the entrance hall to the other three generous double bedrooms, which, in keeping with the rest of the accommodation benefits from character features such as exposed bricks walls and solid oak beams. The first-floor accommodation is completed by a contemporary three piece family bathroom suite.

Externally, there is a lawned garden to the front elevation. A shared drive which leads around the side of the barn and through a five bar gate to the oversized single garage (which has been extensively boarded for extra storage.) To the rear elevation, there is a private, landscaped garden, with both lawn and patio areas.
