LOCATION The village of Fillongley provides excellent local facilities including nearby primary school and is well placed for access to Birmingham and London. The M6 motorway is within easy reach with junctions at both Coleshill and Bedworth with multiple additional options for road and rail links. The National Exhibition Centre and associated facilities are also just a twenty minute drive away. 

DESCRIPTION A most unique home in the popular character village of Fillongley, just off the main High Street close to open countryside.

Church House offers rare opportunity: as a former Methodist Church, converted some 35 years ago to a residential dwelling, and extended in the early 1990s. It hosts modern amenities and facilities all encompassing approximately one third of an acre. The property includes many features of the original church building including dental moulding within several of the rooms, original windows and doors, plus a most impressive church tower with feature "glazed hatch" from the main entrance porch. The property has been well maintained, improved and modernised over the years, and quite surprisingly is not a listed building. It must be noted that a Civic Award was presented to Church House in 1984 by the North Warwickshire Borough Council in recognition of its excellent quality of conversion from a church to a family home. A plaque commemorating this award hangs above the front entrance.

The outer porch leads to an inner porch area which enjoys double doors through to the formal sitting room, originally the "old Sunday School room", where you are greeted by high ceilings and working fireplace. The additional conservatory with arched cloister type windows is a light and airy addition to the living space and offers easy access to the rear garden. Original stained glass features in many of the windows and doors throughout while the main hall gives access to the separate dining room, guest cloakroom and study / TV room.

Accessed from both the sitting room and study area, the kitchen/breakfast room enjoys archway features and beautiful picturesque windows. The separate utility is a generous space, previously serving as the Vestry, with larder cupboard, access to the garden and inner lobby through to garden store room, study and stairs up to bedroom and bathroom.

The first floor affords family bathroom and four bedrooms, of which the master enjoys en suite and built in wardrobes, drawers and storage cupboards. There are picturesque views to the rear garden which enjoys a private aspect along with ample space for a log store plus side access through to the front driveway.

Church House is an exceptional home offering history and character yet practical living space all within a country setting with amenities close to hand.
