LOCATION The property is located in a confirmed greenbelt rural area to the northwest of Nuneaton and to the south of Atherstone, north of Coventry and east of Birmingham city centre and is within close proximity to the A5 which in turn leads to the M69, M1 and M6 motorways, therefore giving fast links to major cities and conurbations together with of course London. Furthermore, there are superb express train and commuter services from Nuneaton and Coventry and the popular villages of Fillongley, Over Whitacre, Old Arley, Ansley, Hartshill and Baxterley are all close at hand. The property therefore has all the benefits of a rural setting and atmosphere, yet has superb road and rail links to cover the Midlands and the nearby national motorway network with superb access to all major cities and conurbations including London. 

DESCRIPTION Having been completely reconverted 20 years ago by the current owners, Moorwood retains its historic authenticity with the use of reclaimed materials to create a charming country residence with truly outstanding 360 degree views over the open countryside. The striking features of this home are captured from the beginning of the tree lined driveway, all set behind a gated entrance that leads up to the main farmhouse and associated buildings in the centre of the 30 acre plot.

You are welcomed into Moorwood Farm through a light and airy porch way with exposed brick features and large glass panels either side of the doorway, creating an element of space. This is continued into the hallway where wooden flooring radiates to the main reception rooms consisting of a cosy sitting room and adjoined large dining room where the fireplace creates the central focus point of the room. Exposed beams and brick features continue from the hallway and lead to the double French doors that lead out onto the outside patio area. The wooden decking provides the perfect space for entertaining that stands adjacent to the outside swimming pool. Multiple glass panels surround the patio area creating a sense of privacy, whilst simultaneously providing the most far reaching views of the surrounding country side. A separate lounge with large fireplace faces out onto the rear garden and provides the entrance to the garden room, where the exposed beams create a high, vaulted ceiling. In addition, large glass windows present beautiful views of the garden and additional out buildings, creating the most peaceful atmosphere.

To complete the ground floor, the country style kitchen/breakfast room is truly the heart of the home, with an array of fitted appliances. These include an integrated fridge and freezer, AGA cooker and dishwasher. From the kitchen, there is a separate utility room with plenty or storage space and room for an American fridge freezer if needed and washing facilities. There is also a snug area off the kitchen for one to relax and enjoy the views of the circling gardens.

Additionally to the ground floor, a wooden structured walkway between the porch way to the kitchen/breakfast room leads to an established games room following suit of the exposed beams and brick features. This spacious room creates the perfect room for entertaining where double doors lead out onto the barbeque area to enjoy alfresco style dining.

From the main hallway, an oak staircase ascends up to the first floor where a large landing area provides access to the master bedroom and 3 further double bedrooms. The master suite includes a superb dressing room which has been designed to a contemporary standard with double doors leading onto the private balcony inviting the picturesque landscape in on finer days. To the master, there is a 'Jack and Jill' bathroom with a raised bath, his and hers sinks and walk in shower. Bedroom 2 and 4 are situated looking out onto the rear of the property, where bedroom 3 is situated at the front of the home with its own en-suite with bath, shower, WC and vanity basin. Bedroom 5 and 6 are located on the second floor with a separate study and shower room. Bedroom 5 also has 3 fitted wardrobes fitted nicely within the framed ceiling, providing plenty of storage.

The Barn:
The detached barn at the front of the property has its own separate entrance and private garden area. Converted around 15 years ago, the barn is now a delightful 3 bedroom residence, perfect for accommodating guests, teenagers and family members. You are greeted through the front door into the hall way with a WC located to the right. Wooden flooring leads to the kitchen/breakfast room, providing adequate space for dining. Integrated appliances include an integrated fridge and freezer, oven and electric hob. From the kitchen, solid wooden flooring leads into the extremely spacious living room, perfect for everyday living or a great entertaining space. Large double French doors lead out onto the far reaching views and wooden decking area. Bedroom 3 with en-suite providing a shower, bath, WC and vanity basin complete the ground floor of the barn. On the first floor a striking wooden, galleried landing is positioned centrally across the living area, providing access to bedroom 1 and bedroom 2 directly opposite. Both bedroom 1 and 2 have fitted wardrobes and plenty of storage space is provided in the eaves. Each bedroom has its own separate en-suite shower room. With windows either side of the sloped roof, one can enjoy the endless views surrounding Moorwood Farm. It is worth noting the barn provides the perfect rental opportunity to consider.

Furthermore, a triple garage complex is situated opposite the main farm house which has been thoughtfully converted to create a desirable entertaining space on the first floor above the garages. Accessed from an iron staircase on the side of the former barn, the luxurious living area is equipped with a corner bar, creating the perfect space to entertain. Through the sitting room, there is a private cinema room to unwind and relax.

3 stable blocks are adjacent to the triple garages with a large outside area, ideal for equestrian use. The first floor has been converted providing versatile space, which is in use as a gym at present.

There is potential scope for further conversion of the original barn (STPP), that currently is used as outside storage space. Both the ground floor and first floor creates a vast space with room for tractors and garden equipment if needed.
