With more than 4,900 sq ft of property and around 1.4 acres of land, including stables and an arboretum – formerly a paddock – time spent viewing a resplendent family home during a forthcoming open event would be very worthwhile.
Latimers Rest, in Hipsley Lane, Baxterley, is a stunning and spacious house with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, beautifully set by Baxterley Church, with the market town of Atherstone just under three miles away.
It is a suitably tranquil, rural location for a property which boasts a number of character features, such as the large inglenook fireplace and wood burner in the sitting room which also has a big bay window to the rear and two side windows letting in plenty of light.
There is a dining room and a kitchen-diner which has a large AGA and a roomy pantry. A downstairs WC provides space to leave coats and on the ground floor are a study and utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and dryer.
Upstairs leads to a large landing and there are a total of four bedrooms on this floor, all either overlooking the garden or open fields. The master suite not only has a dressing area, but also a dressing room which leads into the four-piece en suite.
There is a separate office which has power, lighting, double glazing and plumbing and could have several uses such as an office, an annexe or even just for storage. The double garage has another annexe over the top which can be used as an office or even an apartment as it is fully fitted with a kitchen area and a bathroom.
Having been a part of the National Garden Scheme for the last 10 years the garden certainly is the centre piece of this property. The plot is approximately one and three quarter acres. It is all landscaped and includes three stables, two WCs and an arboretum. The gardens are all private and enclosed.
Baxterley is a beautiful and picturesque village. The close proximity to Atherstone gives easy access to shops and restaurants, whilst Birmingham, Tamworth and Nuneaton are approximately a half-hour drive away. Motorway links make the village the perfect home base for the commuter.
The open house is on Saturday, November 19, at 11am and further details can be obtained from the selling agent Fine & Country whose telephone number is 02476 500015. Offers over £700,000 are sought.
