A beautiful home

Borja De Maqua - Local Property Consultant

This spectacular home will thrill house hunters who appreciate modern design and crave space and privacy.

Chestnut House not only boasts a discerning address, it ticks every box for even the most particular of families. There is the grand entrance and contemporary facade that will set your heart racing before you have even opened the front door. There are 1.5 acres of gardens - not too much but more than enough. Inside the main house there are expansive open-plan spaces for sociable family life, mixed with quiet intimate rooms for privacy. Guests will always be welcome to stay, although they won't want to leave their secluded guest house "The Dairy". There is a large detached garage block for precious cars and then there is The Barn with planning permission to link to the main house - so there is even potential to put your own stamp on the property. This is a wonderful home in a stunning location.

The downstairs is perfect for the modern family. The first thing you notice is the sense of space and the connection to the garden and countryside beyond. The vast entrance hall has been used as a dining hall and a sitting room because of its grand sense of style created by the vaulted ceiling. We love the wide trifold doors that can be flung open to create the indoor/outdoor lifestyle that we all crave. Off the hall there is a huge kitchen/dining/sitting room. The whole family can be in here at the same time doing their own thing - dad cooking up a culinary masterpiece, mum catching up on emails, the kids finishing off their homework and the dogs running in and out of the kitchen to the garden. This room is the central hub of Chestnut House.

There are two further reception rooms on the other side of the ground floor. The living room at the front of the house is ideal as a cinema room where you can curl up with the latest Netflix series. The sitting room at the rear of the house has a formal vibe with the open fire and doors leading into the garden. This room is currently one large space but was two rooms when the property was built and can be easily reverted.

If you want more space then you are able to create it - planning permission has been granted to link the main house to The Barn. The design for the link is for an oak framed walkway with glass, looking out to the garden, leading to The Barn. The extension could be for more living space, bedrooms or a gym and swimming pool and office (see plans and elevations). Planning Permission has also been granted for the addition of an Orangery off the Dining Area (see plans) and The Dairy has permission to be extended (see plans)The options are endless and can be bespoke to the new owners of Chestnut House.  

  • Mr Clarke thinks : The potential to link to the barn and add an Orangery is exciting

There is a beautiful oak staircase, which takes you to the first floor where you find four double bedrooms, three with en-suite shower rooms, two with balconies and wonderful vaulted ceilings. The Master Bedroom is simply stunning and has a walk-in wardrobe and views across the countryside. The family bathrooms is luxurious and has a bath with shower above.

The gardens, which wrap around Chestnut House are perfect for entertaining and playing. The lawn at the back of the house is framed beautifully by gently undulating Warwickshire countryside. It’s the gardens effortless connection with the house that we think is so great - you can easily bring out supper on a warm summer evening or a cup of tea on a crisp Sunday morning. There is a large decked area, vegetable garden, outside kitchen and a discrete covered washing/drying area.

One of the many highlights of the house is The Dairy - a self contained annexe with bedroom, kitchen and living room. It would be ideal for Granny or a Nanny, it could be a teenagers retreat, a home office or an Airbnb.

We can't wait to show you around.

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 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.
