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

This exquisite Grade II-Listed property is located in the pretty village of Barby, Warwickshire. Arranged over three storeys, it extends to over 2,500 sq ft of internal living space, enriched by magnificent original details and awash with character.

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 ash 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 Aga is central to the room and the two windows fill the space with light. The counter tops are from a Victorian shop, the big Belfast sink and taps have been reclaimed and installed to bring the room a sense of history. This is a kitchen for the whole family to be together and enjoying time with each other.

There are three 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.
