A home fit for The Station Master

Mrs Clarke

Tucked away in the corner of a quiet cul-de-sac, Station House is only a short walk away from Kenilworth town centre, yet is situated in a completely private position. Back in the 1840's through to the 1960's this was the local station master’s residence where he could keep a watchful eye on the trains passing by.

The house has many original features, and has been extended several times over the years turning it from a functional working residence, to a spacious and accommodating family home. Whilst lying only a short distance from the bars, shops and vast selection of restaurants that Kenilworth has to offer, this six bedroom detached home sits in a 0.4 acre plot, with a generous gravel driveway.

Walking into the light airy porch, complete with Victorian style floor tiles and brickwork signed off by the original builder himself, you know you are home. The hallway then leads you one of three ways:

Firstly, if you branch off to the right, you find yourself in the Utility/Boot Room, housing one of the properties two gas fired boilers

Secondly, you can move straight through into the recently re-fitted country-style family kitchen which in turn links directly into the spacious conservatory and family snug room. Here there is a multi fuel burner sitting in place of the Station master’s original stove, perfect for keeping the cold at bay.

Alternatively, you could take a left and find yourself in the second kitchen, giving potential future owners the convenient flexibility in living arrangements which would allow for a completely separate living space.

From the dining conservatory you are able to gain access, not only to the family kitchen and cosy snug area but also directly into the large living room which has a gas fire with Victorian surround and comfy hand knotted woollen carpet.

Other unique features include a sound proof garage conversion currently utilised as a music/band room, and a room with a large bay window currently being used as an artists studio but has in the past been utilised as a sitting room.

Ascending up the original 1820’s staircase, there is a master bedroom including an ensuite shower room and three further bedrooms that are served by a spacious family bathroom. The main landing then continues through a door to the separate annex where another double bedroom, single bedroom and spacious bathroom can be found.

The landscaped gardens offer its residents the opportunity to relax and unwind, safe in the knowledge that their children and pets are secure and safe to play. Backing onto the quiet Kenilworth line, the rear garden gives a great sense of seclusion and a thirty year old conifer hedge does a great job in ensuring your privacy. The west facing front garden is spacious and laden with mature trees and catches the late sun, ideal for entertaining on long summer evenings.

This truly is a house that just keeps giving and the opportunities are endless for its new owners to make it their own.

  • Lifestyle : Spacious family home with town on your doorstep.
