Description - Set within 9.25 acres of idyllic Warwickshire countryside in the much sought after village of Nether Whitacre, Church End Farm is a truly exceptional 5 bedroom Grade II listed, timber framed, country residence with a stunning separate converted barn annex. Expertly and lovingly restored throughout this substantial family home offers over 3200 sq ft of accommodation creating a perfect blend of Tudor architecture with a stunning contemporary feel.

The original farmhouse with the threshing barn adjacent (now Annex) was built in the 17th Century and is a timber framed structure with brick infill panels and is linked to the threshing barn by a covered carriageway. The property also boasts the oldest internal beam in an existence in a residential home in
the UK.

The accommodation briefly comprises of: Main Covered Entrance Area, Boot Room / Utility, Shower Room, Boiler Room, Kitchen / Breakfast Room, Dining Room, Living Room and Study. To the first floor is the Master Bedroom with en-suite and dressing room, Four Further Double Bedrooms Bedroom 2, Bedroom 3, Bedroom 4, Bedroom 5 and a Family Bathroom. The Barn Annex comprises of: Open Plan Living Area, Mezzanine Bedroom, Kitchen, and Bathroom.

Seller Insight - The property provided the perfect project for renovation, as the formerly condemned building had ironically only remained standing because of the outbreak of the Second World War. “We had to
undertake a complete structural overhaul on the Grade II Listed building, adding sandstone plinths,” say the owners. “The property retains many original features, such as the original range in the kitchen, in use up until the 1970s, and meat hooks in the exposed oak beams. There is stone flooring throughout, so the house has a very farmhouse feel to it. Though this is a 17th Century property, one of the beams was salvaged from another property so dates back to the 12th Century – it is said to be the oldest beam in any domestic property in the UK!”

Just like the farmhouse itself, the garden is also utterly charming, nicely landscaped and a natural haven for wildlife. “The large pond is home to hundreds of fish” say the owners, “and we have regular visits form the kingfisher, swallows and heron, too.”

Despite its peaceful location, the property lies within 4 miles of the M42, M6 and M6 Toll Road, so offers easy access to various parts of the country. On the outskirts of Coleshill in Warwickshire, the popular village of Nether Whitacre has friendly pubs, a church and its own cricket club. Coleshill town is less than 4 miles away for various shops and everyday amenities.

“The area is very rural, surrounded by farmland and fields of sheep. There are fantastic views from the house and plenty of nice walks and popular National Cycle Routes nearby.”

Gardens & Grounds - The gardens and grounds are well laid out, providing privacy and protection and include formal lawned gardens, decked seating area overlooking the ornamental fish pond and vegetable garden.

The property also boasts equestrian facilities including a U-shaped stable block on a concrete hardstanding, enclosed with post and rail fencing. This is currently set up as 3 large loose boxes, large hay store and tack room. The hay store however could easily be converted into a further two stables and there is a large agricultural building that could be utilised for further storage area.

The land has been sectioned off into a variety of smaller and larger paddocks, all divided by post and rail fencing. The land in all is bordered by a mixture of post and rail and mature hedgerows with trees interspersed, and is fully stock proof. There is a stream that runs through the paddocks, providing natural ponds as well.

There are also a large number of outbuildings: Triple Garage, Two Further Commercial Sized Garages, Stables, Kennels, Traditional Agricultural Building and a Workshop.

The Grounds also have: Formal Garden, Decked Seating Area, Vegetable Garden, Large Ornamental Fish Pond, Natural Ponds and Paddocks,
