An imposing four bedroom detached family home with a wealth of character, charm and potential. Requiring modernisation in some parts but overall this is a simply fantastic family home. Boasting 1.2 acres (approx.) of land, four good size bedrooms with a master ensuite, three reception rooms and not to mention the garage and workshop. The garden has a formal part and then at the bottom of the garden is a piece of land the size of a paddock where there are various sheds, they could easily be stables.

Seller Insight The current owners were attracted to the house 32 years ago, when it had been empty for about three years and presented a renovation project. Its large garden, although waist high at the time, held particular
appeal as an enclosed and safe space for their young family to enjoy everything from a zip-wire to a pony. The house had been extended previously with a sun lounge and a small kitchen, while original doors and many other features had been removed. Renovation involved finding replacement features and fittings, such as cornicing, in sympathy with the original Edwardian style of the interior.
A new kitchen was installed in the snug, which had probably been the original kitchen as there is access to a pantry, while the small kitchen extension was turned into a breakfast room. The owners double glazed the adjoining sun lounge, which they use as an office. Off the hall is a triple aspect reception lounge, which has two windows including a bay to the front, and two sets of French doors that open to the sun lounge at the rear. The reception lounge also has a marble open fireplace flanked by two arched alcoves, while the separate dining room has a front aspect walk-in bay window and an original feature fireplace with a gas fire. On the first floor, the owners put in a new family bathroom and added en-suite facilities to the master bedroom.
Outside to the rear, a covered outhouse and utility area next to the breakfast room leads to a garden WC and to a large workshop, converted from a former games room. The rear garden has a patio area but is laid mainly to lawn and is bordered by mature trees and shrubs to give a high degree of privacy, while a gate at the far end leads through to the paddock. To the front, the garage has an inspection pit and loft storage space.
Offering plenty of potential for further enhancement, the property is conveniently located within five minutes walk of a both a senior school and a junior school, while retail amenities include a couple of small supermarkets. A wider choice of shops and schools are within a 10-minute drive at Kenilworth, Coventry, Solihull, Warwick and Leamington Spa. The property benefits from excellent communications as the M40, the M42, the M6, Birmingham Airport and the International Station are also just a short drive away. In addition, Balsall Common has its own station on the north side of the village, known as Berkswell Station, which is on the West Coast Main Line and offers off-peak services to London Euston.
