Full description

Located in the desirable area of Fillongley is this 8 bedroom character family home that spans almost 5200 sq. ft. with 2 of the bedrooms in an independent ground floor annexe. In total the property sits on just under an acre, with 2 separate gated driveways, and secluded private gardens.

Accommodation - This character family home was originally stables and garages built in the early 1900’s but were converted in 1998 into accommodation. The home is 8 bedrooms in total with 2 of the bedrooms in a separate annexe.

Upon entering the main house through the front door and into the dining room you are immediately greeted with a wealth of character features. To the left of this room is the recently refitted farm house style kitchen which has plenty of natural light flooding the room through the large windows that look out onto the private gardens. In the dining room is a feature fire place and a huge amount of space for a large dining table. Off the kitchen is also a utility room where the new Bosch Boiler is housed. There is also a separate downstairs WC. Downstairs is also the large living room, with another feature fireplace and French doors leading out to a patio and driveway.

Following up the wrap around staircase there is a spacious landing which leads through to the 6 bedrooms, store room and family bathroom on this floor. Of the 6 bedrooms in the main house, 5 are generous double bedrooms, and 2 have ensuite facilities. The incredible spacious master bedroom has dual aspect windows looking over the private grounds and exposed oak beams. The master ensuite is a full bathroom with a sunken bath, WC, wash basin, and separate shower. The 6th bedroom is currently used as a study but could adequately be used as a single bedroom. There is also a converted loft room on the second floor with Velux windows and exposed beams. This space has a multitude of opportunities for a variety of different uses.

Annexe - As well as the main house is the independent 2 bedroom ground floor annexe that has its separate gated driveway and front door access. Entering this annexe through its front door and into its large porch you immediately notice the high ceilings. This porch leads through to the large kitchen diner with incredible vaulted ceilings that accentuate the feeling of space throughout. Off the kitchen is the very large living/dining room which again is dual aspect offering great views of the gardens. There is also a separate WC and both double bedrooms also offer ensuite facilities. The annexe would be great used as an annexe or could also be an investment or rental opportunity.

Outside - Externally the home sits on just under an acre in total with the mature gardens that are private in all directions. Both the main house and the annexe have their own independent driveways with electric private gates. The large driveways offer enough space for many (over 15) cars in total. There is also a large garage accessed via a sleeper lined gravel driveway.

Location - The village of Fillongley is situated in the beautiful North Warwickshire countryside. Some six miles north west of Coventry, and close to Birmingham Airport (only 15 minutes away) and Birmingham International Train Station, there is also easy access to the M6, M1 and M42. A train to London Euston takes just 60 minutes from Coventry or Birmingham International Train Station.

Sellers Insight - Situated on a quiet country lane on the fringes of the charming village of Fillongley are The Gatehouse and The Coach House, a generously proportioned family home and an equally spacious two-bedroom annexe. ''The properties have actually been in our family for around forty years,'' says the seller. ''They were built c1911 and were originally the stables and garages belonging to Fillongley Lodge, which is a beautiful country house that lies just next door. Around twenty years ago the buildings were converted into three very spacious homes and we have lived in The Gatehouse ever since.''

''The style of both properties reflects the surroundings, and the conversions were done sympathetically and to a very high standard, so not only are they in great condition but they’re also hugely characterful. The Gatehouse has a single bedroom and five very generously proportioned doubles, including a huge master suite, and the main living areas, though traditional in terms of layout, are also really large, so there’s space to come together but equally rooms to retreat to for a bit of peace and quiet. It’s very much a family home and it’s also extremely conducive to entertaining; we had a 40th birthday celebration in the house with around 40 guests and a wedding celebration in the grounds with marquees.''

''The Coach House adjoins The Gatehouse but is completely self-contained and absolutely huge,''. ''It has a large entrance hall, that’s currently used as a study, then steps lead up to kitchen/diner that’s not much smaller than ours, and I’d say that the lounge/dining room is again a massive room with plenty of space for entertaining it also has a lovely feature fireplace. It’s a beautiful annexe, and ideal for elderly relatives because there’s no compromise in terms of space or accessibility.''

''Both properties have very pretty gardens that are again generously proportioned, and both are dry walled using local sandstone much of which was taken from the grounds, so there’s a good degree of privacy. The Gatehouse has a lower garden just outside the kitchen window and that is where we have a trampoline and a really nice patio where we all tend to congregate, and then the lawn gently rises away from the house. It’s safe and secure for children and pets and because of the setting it’s also incredibly peaceful.''

''Within The Gatehouse our favourite room is without doubt the kitchen,'' says the seller. ''We had it refitted just two years ago, so not only is it looking really nice but it’s also a much more practical space. It’s the real hub of the home and the space to which everyone seems to naturally gravitate.''

''The properties are situated on a quiet country mile long lane, on which there are only ten houses in total, so it’s very peaceful,'' says the seller. ''It’s a real little community here; everyone knows each other and looks out for each other, but at the same time we have our space and privacy. We enjoy the most beautiful rural views and we can cross the road and walk for miles across the fields, however we can also hop in the car and be either in Coventry or Birmingham city centre, at Birmingham International Station or even at the airport in next to no time, so we enjoy the very best of both worlds.''

''The Coach House is hugely characterful,''. ''It features some lovely oak beams and the living room has a huge fireplace that creates a really cosy atmosphere. In my mind, in terms of size and style it’s pretty unique.''

''If the house wasn’t so large, my wife and I wouldn’t even consider moving, but it’s too big for us now with older children having flown the nest,'' says the seller. ''If we can find somewhere on a smaller scale that offers the same lifestyle we’ll be extremely happy.''
