Vendor Comments - Situated within the glorious Warwickshire countryside, almost equidistant between the thriving towns of Rugby and Lutterworth, is the charming village of Churchover, and right on the edge of the village is School Farm House. This very attractive family home, which boasts around nine acres of rolling grounds, is immaculately presented having recently been beautifully refurbished throughout. “I was actually born in this house,” says Diane. “Seventy-nine years ago my father came here to buy a cow and a calf, but he loved the farm so much that he ended up buying the whole lot – including the calf and the cow – and I have to say that it was a very happy family home and the most idyllic place to grow up.”

“During the time my parents lived here, the property stayed pretty much the same as the day they bought it, however in the past couple of years I have had the house completely refurbished. I’ve had it re-roofed, rewired, re-plastered, a new kitchen has been installed and I’ve also had en-suites added, so it’s now a generously proportioned family home that’s absolutely lovely throughout. It’s ready for the new owners to move in, put their stamp on it and enjoy.”

“As well as a lovely big garden, the property also boasts around nine acres of grassland and numerous outbuildings, many of which have huge development potential,” continues Diane. “In fact I’ve recently gained planning permission to convert some of the buildings into five brand new dwellings. I’ve had detailed plans drawn up and I’ve actually begun some of the work, so it’s a project that could prove to be a really exciting opportunity for the new owner.”

Favourite Room: “During the renovation process a wall was taken down to create a really nice breakfast area that flows off the kitchen,” says Diane, “and I’d say that that is now one of the nicest rooms. It’s in the oldest part of the house, so it features a gorgeous inglenook and some of the original beams, and it also has French windows leading out onto the garden, so during the warmer months it has a really nice connection with the outside space.”

Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area: “Churchover is a lovely little village and one that has a really strong sense of community,” says Diane. “It’s surrounded by mile upon mile of glorious countryside, so it’s both peaceful and picturesque, and yet places such as Rugby and Lutterworth are just moments away by car, so everything you might want or need is within easy reach. It’s ideal.”

Memorable event (if not another favourite room or unique feature): “On the top floor I’ve created a really beautiful master suite,” says Diane. “It has a dressing room and a lovely little bathroom, so it’s a real retreat, and the views from up there are absolutely magnificent.”

What they’ll miss most / why they are leaving: “I have very fond memories of growing up in School Farm House, it’s an idyllic place to live,” says Diane, “and since it’s been refurbished it’s even more beautiful. It’s also a property that has huge development potential, a factor that I’d say sets it apart from many others.”
