A superb and spacious Victorian family home in a perfect town centre location set on a generous plot, of approx 1/4 acre, including a south facing, landscaped and walled rear garden. This fabulous home perfectly combines modern day open plan living, as the present sellers have modernised the property whilst also ensuring the retention of the original period features and character throughout. This is a wonderful and unique opportunity to purchase a distinctive property in the town with Abbey Fields, Kenilworth Castle and Train station, for access to London, all within walking distance.
PROPERTY INFORMATION This is a beautiful example of a classic Victorian home, dating from 1885, having been professionally remodelled and refurbished by the present sellers to an exacting specification since their occupation of the property over the past 8 years.
The sellers have created a stylish family home perfectly combining character with modern day living to include a stunning open plan living space having a hand made and hand painted open plan kitchen with large dining table and a family snug with log burner to the side. There is also a formal lounge and a further family room plus a cellar. On the first floor are three of the double bedrooms plus the shower room, en-suite and bathroom with freestanding bath – a truly luxurious room for relaxing. The fourth large bedroom is on the second floor which is where the home office can also be found. There is also the potential to create a large office or fifth bedroom in this part of the house if so desired.
To the outside improvements have also been made, whilst also retaining the classic style of the period, there is an ‘in and out’ driveway plus a garage and to the rear the outstanding garden being south facing, walled and having a super full width terrace.
