Local life

There is a warm, calm sense of home.

Mrs Clarke

As you drive through the large electric gates and see Foxgrove House your shoulders lower, your grin broadens and you feel at home. When you open the front door you are welcomed with a warm and calm sense of home that makes you instantly at ease and comfortable - far from the crowds and in a bubble of serenity.

There is so much to discover in this beautifully restored and remodelled home.
The wide entrance hall has lots of space to drop off the shopping and hang the coats. Mr Clarke is impressed with the super durable choice of ceramic tiles for an area of the home that will see lots of comings and goings. The secretive looking door on the right hand side lures you to take a peek. You are treated to a library with floor to ceiling bookshelves and enough space for armchairs and the dog, perfect for enjoying a book and a glass of wine. It's more private members club than civic library.
Head a little further down the hall and a wide double set of doors leads to the huge living room. The wood panelling, solid oak floors and two original open fireplaces give the room a grand, traditional character. The front half has a large bay window to watch who is coming down the drive and the rear half has french doors leading to the patio area.


"I love the kitchen. It’s massive and has everything you could dream of in a family kitchen. Brand new electric Aga, floating island, marble worktops, handcrafted cabinets that have so much storage, a pantry and french doors that look out to the gorgeous garden. Kitchen heaven."




Past the stairs is that kitchen, that beautiful kitchen. While the rest of the downstairs has a traditional charm, the kitchen is more industrial chic. The mix of smooth plaster, whitewashed brick walls and marble worktops is stunning. Mrs Clarke adores the dining part of the kitchen that is framed by a glass wall that looks out to the long garden and the oak framed summer house at the bottom.

  • Mr Clarke is impressed with : A cellar for your wine collection

It’s then up the long stairs, past a small landing looking over the garden, and to the first floor with three bedrooms and the main bathroom. The master bedroom is a thing of calm serenity. From the bed you look through a large his and hers walk-in dressing area and into the en-suite spa, which boasts a vintage tub and huge walk in shower. Mrs Clarke could spend days in here pampering herself.
The other two bedrooms have been individually styled. Our favourite is the guest bedroom with two windows and wood panelled walls washed with Skimming Stone Farrow & Ball paint. This home has all the luxury touches.

"The top floor offers peace and tranquility. The office is a haven big enough for three desks to do homework or work from home."




A second staircase leads up to the top floor where there is a bright office, another bedroom, a large bathroom and then the cinema room big enough for a crowd of movie enthusiasts.

Summary

  • Family Factor : Big garden and a summer house
  • X Factor : Beautifully renovated and decorated
  • Xtra Factor : Electric gates will make you feel like a pop star (if you actually aren't one)
  • Our favourite part We love the large living room. When both fires are roaring and all of our family and friends are over, it is a magical place for a party. In the summer we have the doors open and the children and dog run in and out all day long.

LOCAL LIFE IN LAPWORTH

Lapworth has everything a village should have.

Lapworth is a great village tucked away in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside. But it's certainly not remote. In fact we think it is better connected than most places in England. You could be jetting off to warmer climes from Birmingham airport, which is only 20 minutes away, zipping along to London from Lapworth Station or zooming down the M40 quicker than Mrs Clarke can say "supper's ready". If it is Birmingham you are wanting to get to then Lapworth station runs regular services to all Birmingham stations.

The school is very sought after and mums are queuing up to get the little ones enrolled. After drop off they head to The Virgin Active for some pilates. "There is a great network of people in the village. Lapworth has a really friendly community."

That's the boring stuff done! Did I mention there are three pubs? Mr & Mrs Clarke's favourite is The Boot. "The beer is delicious and the food is wonderful. George, the very handsome Manager recommends the annual bonfire "It's a must see. The teepee in the back garden is great for a fancy party."

Lapworth is located between Warwick and Solihull. It boasts not one but three pubs, a cricket club and a train to London & Birmingham. That must be why Mr Clarke loves it.

Lapworth is surrounded by stunning countryside and some lovely National Trust properties. The cycling around the area is fantastic and with Dynamic Rides, a great cycle shop in Hockley Heath, there is always someone to jump on the saddle with.

"We love Lapworth because it's so friendly. Everyone says hello when you are walking the dogs along the canal and it's just a really pretty and safe place to live" said a well heeled and well dressed gentleman when we last popped into the village for a bottle of wine the pop shop.

You are close to lots of little hubs like Hockley Heath, which has a McLaren garage if you fancy a new car, a great fish and chip shop, a superb Indian restaurant, and a dry cleaners. Henley-in-Arden for great ice cream, Warwick, Solihull, Leamington and Kenilworth. It's a well connected place to live.

  • Closest village/town: Lapworth
  • Post Office: 1
  • Stores: Lapworth Stores run by one of the nicest shop keepers you will every meet, DJ.
  • Supermarket: Waitrose in Kenilworth is only fifteen minutes away or Tesco is in Shirey. Hockley Heath has Steve Mills butchers and a few shops for the necessities.
  • Pubs: Lots of them. The Boot is superb, The Tom O' The Wood is wonderful & The Navigation does some very good ales and then there is the glam Punch Bowl.
  • Walks: Endless walking along the canal or in the countryside.
