Tucked away on Forge Road, this home marries the charm of the Edwardian era with the conveniences of contemporary living. This detached cottage, dating back to 1910, stands as the sole surviving structure from the old mill days, now transformed into a spacious three-bedroom haven.
The cottage opens up beyond its unassuming facade, revealing generous proportions and an abundance of natural light streaming through well-placed windows. The loft conversion adds a touch of sophistication, granting more functional space to this character-filled abode.
The kitchen, a hub of activity, welcomes you with open arms. It's a place where memories are made, where dinner parties for eight have been hosted with ease. With ample storage, a full-sized dining table, and a stately Rangemaster at its heart, this space effortlessly balances style and practicality.
The living room, a retreat in all seasons, exudes warmth in winter with plush curtains and the welcoming glow of the Rangemaster in the kitchen. As summer arrives, French doors swing open, inviting the breeze and sunshine in, illuminating the room's charm.
Upstairs, three comfortable double bedrooms await. The main bedroom, graced with an ensuite and fitted wardrobes, promises tranquillity and convenience. The additional bedrooms, adorned with industrial-style touches, are versatile spaces offering comfort and style.
The bathrooms continue the theme of elegance and functionality. With slate grey tiles and thoughtful shelving units, they are designed for both relaxation and efficiency.
Step outside, and you'll find a paved patio with seating area, perfect for al fresco dining or a quiet morning coffee. A shed provides convenient storage, and the raised bed in the front garden is a testament to the home's history and thoughtful design.
Located in the heart of Kenilworth, this residence offers not just a home, but a lifestyle. Kenilworth Common, a stone's throw away, offers the allure of woodland walks, while nearby pubs and shops add a touch of vibrancy to the community. Excellent schools, including St. Nicholas and Kenilworth School, make this a family-friendly locale.
Transport links are excellent, with Kenilworth's own train station, buses to nearby towns, and easy access to the A46 for journeys further afield. Warwick, Leamington, and Coventry are all within easy reach, ensuring a dynamic and connected lifestyle.
In short, Forge Road embodies the perfect blend of history, character, and modern convenience, ready to welcome you into a lifestyle of warmth and ease. This isn't just a house; it's a home filled with cherished memories and the promise of more to come.

Kenilworth Old Town
Historical town with a Castle, old pubs and beautiful park
There is Kenilworth and then there is Kenilworth Old Town. This isn’t us being all “estate agenty” and making up names for places to increase property prices – Kenilworth Old Town is the enclave of gorgeous homes, shops and restaurants (including The Cross) based around the Castle and Abbey Fields. It’s the poshest end of this fab town!
Within a hop and a step you can be eating supper at The Virgins & Castle (Kenilworth oldest pub) or The famous Cross (a delight for the taste buds). You can be drinking a pint at The Queen & Castle. There is a newsagent, a bakery, a tea shop, a physio and lots of lovely local peeps to say hello to.
Kenilworth High Street boasts banks galore, numerous coffee houses, bundles of restaurants, funky bars, fantastic schools for kiddly winks of all ages, a Waitrose, Boots and a weekly farmers market that dishes up some delicious local produce. Mr Clarke is particularly fond of the high percentage of pubs all within wobbling distance of each other.
Kenilworth is surrounded by breath-taking countryside and some lovely walks are on hand to help you blow off the cobwebs after work or if you just fancy a long Sunday ramble. And should you like stepping back in time, you could always descend onto Kenilworth Castle, which is lovingly cared for by English Heritage. We particularly like the walk from Kenilworth Castle to the Alpaca Farm “Faerie-Tale Aplacas”. Not to mention the next level park, Abbey Fields.
There’s a super friendly community spirit in Kenilworth too and you’ll always find something in the calendar to enjoy. It could be the annual bonfire and fireworks display that draws in thousands of folk. Or the annual duck race on Boxing Day (no, not real ducks). All in all, it’s a place you’ll feel at home almost overnight.
It’s really well connected, with Birmingham airport just 20 minutes away and should you need to bob along to London, it’s just over an hour from Coventry station. More locally there is Kenilworth railway station on the line between Coventry and Leamington Spa, so commuting to the big smoke will be even easier.
