Full description

The Elms is a fabulous Grade II listed period property, constructed of stone, brick, and cob walls with thatch and slate roofs and is situated in the heart of this popular village. The property offers spacious and versatile family living accommodation over three floors and is set within delightful cottage gardens, approaching a third of an acre. The property also benefits from a small open fronted thatch barn and a large two storey brick built barn, both of which are set around an attractive, south facing courtyard. The two storey barn makes a wonderful workshop/store but could have numerous other uses, including home office or further living accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consent.

Location - Kilsby is an attractive village situated approximately five miles from Rugby and Daventry, just on the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire borders. The village itself has two public houses, a community shop, a pre-school and primary school, and an active village hall. There are excellent grammar schools nearby, including Lawrence Sheriff and Rugby High School for Girls, and independent schools at Bilton Grange, Princethorpe College, and the well renowned Rugby School.

The nearby towns of Rugby and Daventry both provide local shopping and recreational facilities, and Milton Keynes, Coventry, Birmingham and Leicester are all less than an hour away by car. The village is excellently situated for roads, being on the junction of the A5 and A361 and about three miles away from the intersection of the M1, M6, and A14. There are train stations at Long Buckby and Rugby where Virgin Trains provide high speed services to Birmingham and London Euston in well under an hour.

Ground Floor - A front door, with stained glass panelling above, and a rear door with glazed porch, both lead into the entrance hall which provides access to a downstairs WC, cloaks cupboard, sitting room, and family room. The family room is dual aspect to both front and rear, and has exposed ceiling and supporting beams and a fireplace with gas living flame fire (LPG). The large and spacious dual aspect sitting room also has an exposed beam and a brick built fireplace with a cast iron wood burning stove. A door leads through to a well-proportioned dining room, again with windows to the front and rear. The large kitchen/breakfast room has tiled flooring and is well appointed with various fitted appliances including double oven and four ring hob and spaces for fridge, freezer, dishwasher etc. A wide, floor to ceiling window with door looks out onto the rear courtyard.

First Floor - The generous master bedroom, with dual aspect to front and rear has a separate dressing room with fitted wardrobes and a large en-suite bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes, and a family bathroom on this floor.

Second Floor - This converted attic floor, which would be ideal for teenage children, consists of a separate bedroom and a large sitting area.

Outside - The property fronts onto Middle Street and has a driveway to the side of the house which leads to a double garage and ample off-road parking at the rear. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with mature tree, shrub and flower borders but an area to the side of the property is divided off by a cob wall to provide a small orchard and vegetable patch. There is also a garden pond with an adjacent paved patio area.

The attractive, south facing courtyard is surrounded on three sides by the kitchen and open fronted barn, both of which are cob walled and thatched, and the two storey brick barn and adjacent store.

Two Storey Barn - The large barn is currently used for storage but the first floor was previously refurbished to create office space. The barn could have numerous uses including a games room, home office, or even separate living accommodation, subject to the necessary consents.
