Mr Clarke says :
That double garage could make a great office
When a house has its own postcode, you know it is truly something to behold and Wagster Cottage is just that. Set in a secluded plot, on a quiet single track lane, this beautiful cottage boasts three double bedrooms as well as a fully contained annexe. This modern Annexe has been lovingly constructed to compliment the Grade II listed cottage and is joined by a glass tunnel, separating the new from the old.
As you enter through the gate, you find yourself in a wonderland with separate gardens, space for the chickens, fruit trees, a workshop, sheds, summerhouse and picturesque views across the open countryside.
Step inside, and you find yourself immediately in the open plan kitchen diner, with its exposed beams and slate tiled floors. This space is ideal for entertaining grown ups and having play dates over, with the kitchen having a range of cupboards, gas hobs and oil fired Rayburn stove (now disconnected). The dining area has enough room for a large family to dine comfortably in front of the log burner.
Moving through the dining room, you have a hallway leading you in one of three directions. There is a glass door leading into the wooden framed conservatory, stairs up to the first floor and a further door opening into the large lounge with inglenook fireplace and inset log burning stove. This surprisingly large room lends itself to family life well, whether it be watching your favourite Netflix series or gathering the whole family to play their favourite board game, this room is ideal for everything.
Upstairs the original cottage has three double bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC. The Oak beams give the cottage a wealth of character and no matter which window you look out of the views are plentiful.

The quiet road and beautiful gardens
From the lounge you have a further bathroom and kitchenette which have been installed to serve the fully contained annexe. This annexe has its own dressing room, lounge with log burner and French doors opening into the landscaped gardens. Looking up you find a mezzanine balcony bedroom with space for a double bed under two skylights, giving its occupier a perfect view of the stars on a clear night.
The surrounding Warwickshire countryside will give you all the entertainment you need on a summers evening, then when winter comes you can curl up and read your favourite book in front of the log burner.
This is simply a great house in immaculate condition, in an unbeatably quiet location, awaiting its new family. You can move in and unwind blissfully. The driveway having enough space for multiple cars and leading up to the double garage with planning for new conventional tiled roof or other.
- Lifestyle : Peaceful country living
- Three words : Quiet. Character. Country.
Our favourite part
Delightful Market Town
Coleshill is a delightful market town located on the border of Warwickshire and the West Midlands. This location enjoys easy access to Solihull, Birmingham and the wider midland motorway network. The town is conveniently located for easy access to Birmingham Airport, therefore allowing locals the opportunity to escape the English weather when it is at its worst (yes it’s raining today!), or for that business trip to Scotland or Europe.
The market town has history pre-dating Roman occupation and was utilised as a staging post for the coaching roads linking London to Chester, Liverpool and Holyhead. This is even apparent today with the coaching inns which remain along the High Street and Coventry Road.
There are plenty of pubs and restaurants in the town and one of our favourites is the The Red Lion, which does a ‘bloomin’ great’ Sunday roast and has the atmosphere to match. To relax and unwind you can always make use of the picturesque Forest of Arden Country Club and its 18 hole championship golf course. With its close proximity to Birmingham and it’s Symphony Hall, National Indoor Arena, the NEC and Genting Arena, there are also opportunities to escape it all with walks around the stunning open countryside; there is no doubt you are never far away from something relaxing or entertaining to keep you occupied.
