Edd thinks:
This is an idyllic place to call home. The gardens are the perfect setting for long summer days with the children and lots of friends.

This exquisite Grade II-Listed detached home is located in the pretty village of Barby, Warwickshire. Extending to over 2,500 sq ft of internal living space, Holly Lodge is enriched by magnificent original details and awash with character.

Edd loves:
The interiors are gorgeous. The mix of old and new, Georgian and Victorian, bright and subtle is inspiring.

Holly Lodge is set back along a sweeping forty-meter driveway, which opens up to gardens that stretch in front and behind the house. There is space for pottering and relaxing, gardening and socialising with family and friends in front of the summer house. This is a wonderful home full of history and ready for the future.

The oldest part of the house dates back to the 18th century and it is great to find so many original features remaining. Within the kitchen there is a mix of 18th century pieces mixed with Victorian and modern additions. You enter the house into a grand hall way with beautiful Victorian Minton tiles under foot. An original oak staircase ascends to the first floor and the hallway leads to a series of reception rooms and the garden beyond.

The two reception rooms take your breath away and you are encouraged to sit down and take in the beauty of the property and the dream of the life ahead. The living room is flooded with natural light from two large sash windows and warmth radiates from the log burner. The lounge is framed by wood panelling and your eyes are drawn to the open fireplace and the views of the garden.

The beating heart of this house is the kitchen - the Red Aga is central to the room and the two windows fill the space with light. This is a kitchen for the whole family to be together and enjoying time with each other.

There are three double bedrooms on the first floor and two bathrooms. The main bedroom has bucolic views across the front of the house and there is an original cast iron fireplace, ornate built in wardrobes and direct access to the family bathroom. The second bedroom is a good size and the guest bedroom has direct access to the downstairs via a staircase. The en-suite to bedroom three on this floor can also be accessed from the landing, with its cast iron roll top bath and ''his and her' wash basins all the luxurious feels are elevated.

The second floor comprises of two further double bedrooms, with views across the village.

To the rear of the property there is a cobbled courtyard garden with covered barbecue area and workshop / office with electricity.
