Seller's Insight - 2 Livingstone Avenue - Rugby
Beautifully refurbished by the current owners and exquisitely presented to the highest of quality finishes, this superb four bedroom home at 2 Livingstone Avenue offers the utmost of modern countryside living in comfort and style. “We stripped the house back to a mere shell,” say the current owners, “and set about creating the wonderful contemporary interior the house envelops today.”
An open plan layout to the ground floor facilitates everyday family life and easy entertaining. “Every door through to the large lounge, kitchen or dining area is mostly glass,” say the owners, “so you can see right through between the different spaces to enable a light, bright, spacious feeling to the living accommodation.”
With generous front and rear gardens, the outdoor spaces of the property have also been beautifully maintained. “We have a large driveway with parking for multiple cars, ideal for when we have friends or family to visit,” say the owners. “The wraparound garden with shrubbery and laurels is a delight to behold, while the contemporary rear garden is a pleasant place to sit and enjoy the sun with its two lawns and granite slab patio area, the perimeter being neatly bordered with sandstone.”
The local area surrounding the property is extremely desirable, being semi rural yet with easy access to amenities. “Settled close to the River Avon with the Warwickshire countryside beyond, we are not right in the heart of the village,” say the owners, “but set back on a private road which gives a wonderful feeling of seclusion. However, large shops can be reached within 7 minutes, with motorway networks to Coventry and beyond easily accessible. The hospital is also close by, making this a popular location for commuting surgeons and doctors.” Rugby, Warwickshire’s second largest market town, offers a fine selection of shopping and dining facilities, and is well known for its famous public school and the birth of Rugby football, as well as its green open spaces and parkland. The location is also convenient for rail services to Birmingham, Leicester and London Euston in just 50 minutes.
What they will miss most
“When the lights in the house and at the property’s perimeter come on at nighttime, the house looks absolutely stunning, and you cannot help but say ‘Wow!’. Once inside, you are not disappointed, the interior being just as impressive as the façade.”
Favourite room
“We would find it hard to choose just one favourite room, as we put so much love and care into making them all into spaces we love to spend time in.”
Best thing about the grounds
“The gardens, which wrap beautifully around the house, have been exquisitely landscaped using high quality stone to create a tranquil outdoor environment which serves as an extension to the relaxing contemporary interior of the house itself.
Memorable event
“This house is just perfect for entertaining, its huge 20 x 30 ft lounge having served us well for many fantastic family gatherings and events. We often have the whole family over, as ours is the largest house and can easily accommodate everyone.”
