Mr Clarke says :
A good investment in a great village.
30 Yew Tree Close is a lovely three bedroom home in the heart of Lapworth. There a stunning open plan kitchen, formal sitting room and a great garden.
A short stroll from the centre of the village, past the Village Shop, up Station Lane and just before the very well regarded primary school and preschool you come to Yew Tree Close. No. 30 is immaculate and has been cleverly renovated. The recent extension of the kitchen has made the downstairs into a large, modern and sociable space. The architect has added a dining space with bifold doors looking out to the lovely garden. There is an effortless flow from the kitchen to the garden that is ideal for families. Planning permission has been granted to install a log burner in the kitchen.
The modern kitchen is fitted boasts oodles of storage and work surface space. The whole family can be together in this large room, all doing different things. It’s also a great social space for inviting friends around. The downstairs has underfloor heating to keep toes toasty on cold winters mornings. All windows are newly fitted.
The other room downstairs is the formal sitting room. The subtle decoration make this a calm and relaxing space, flooded by light from the two windows. Because the house is in the corner of a quiet cul-de-sac you are able to live in peace without noisy traffic or passers by. The sitting room has space for sofas and chairs, as well as a desk and play space for children. There is a really useful porch to dump bags and coats so you can keep the home clutter free.
The cottage style garden is wonderful. You are next to the primary school playing fields, so on weekends and evenings you have uninterrupted views. The garden has neat borders, packed with pretty flowers, a dining area and a patio area. There are several cherry trees with the most amazing blossom in the spring, a mature magnolia and an espalier apple tree. Then there is the pizza oven. Recently installed and built to the highest standards, this outdoor oven is a show stopper for entertaining year round.
The side passage is gravelled and leads to the sheds and storage area at the front of the house. There is plenty of room for all your storage needs or there is potential to extend the home and add a single storey extension. All the planning and building regs would need to be sought but the potential is exciting.
Mrs Clarke says :
The open plan kitchen is perfect for modern families.
Up the stairs you come to the three large bedrooms. Each is big enough for a double bed and lots of storage.
The bathroom has a bath with powerful shower over. There is a smart WC and sink plus the very important airing cupboard.
No. 30 Yew Tree Close is in great condition, it has lots of space, a pretty garden and it is in the middle of a super village. You can turn the key and move in or you can get the builders in to add an extension at the front, making this a very exciting house. We are looking forward to showing you around.
- Style : A smart three bedroom home with an architectural addition.
- Location : Lovely Lapworth.

Our favourite part
“Mrs Clarke loves the kitchen and Mr Clarke is having a pint at The Boot.”
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 and 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 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.
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.
