This wonderful Three Bedroom single storey Barn Conversion is quietly tucked away within an attractive cloister in the heart of the extremely popular and unspoiled village of Priors Hardwick.
Driving out on a sunny day to visit this property was a sheer delight for me. The approach to the village, which is to the south east of Warwickshire, is surrounded by countryside and is absolutely glorious!
It’s very easy to understand how John and Denise, the current owners, fell in love with this home and its beautiful surroundings 18 years ago.
"Coming home from work after a busy day has been a constant joy to us; Feeling the stress of the day fading away as we drive down the pretty hill into the village."
Believed to have been converted in 1987, there are many pleasing features to this property, not least the sunny 26′ Lounge with its South facing outlook. It’s a bright and open space with oak framed panels and beams, a vaulted ceiling and a wall of glazing that not only provides an excellent outlook but also allows access via French doors to the garden. The light just floods in!
"This room is wonderful all year round but for me it really comes into its own in December when we decorate it with a huge Christmas tree and dress the beams with festive greenery."
The recently redecorated dining room is a generous room with Welsh slate flooring and an impressive stone Inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove.
"The glow from the stove really adds to the atmosphere in this room and is a lovely space to entertain our family and friends".
Highlighting the adaptability of this home due to everything all being on one level, Denise pointed out that the dining room had in fact been used by the previous owners as their Master Bedroom.
They’ve chosen, however, to use an alternative room as their Main Bedroom on account of its high vaulted beam framed ceiling and Velux style windows.
"It allows us to fall asleep looking up at the stars and to wake up to the Sunshine".
There are two further bedrooms. One of which is a double and the third bedroom is currently used as an office. It is a perfect space for working from home but will equally serve as a bedroom if your family’s needs require it.
However, adjacent to Bedroom Three is the well-equipped fitted Kitchen with its numerous built in appliances. Should the new owners not require the third bedroom, there could be the opportunity here to knock through and create a bigger Kitchen if desired.
The private garden is laid mainly to lawn with a lovely patio area for al fresco dining, or to simply relax and enjoy the tranquillity.
From the driveway there is access to the single garage with an additional allocated parking space and a pleasing view across the open fields of the English Heritage protected sight of the original mediaeval village.
Priors Hardwick is very community minded with a happy mix of age groups. It also enjoys the benefits of having the famous Butchers Arms restaurant right on the doorstep!
There are good schools locally with easy access to the nearby towns of Leamington, Southam, Daventry and Coventry with their wide range of leisure and retail facilities.
For the commuter, there is rail access to London Marylebone with the M40 and M1 also nearby.
All in all, this is a beautifully presented and adaptable home which would be a joy for anyone to live in whilst enjoying the best of both town and country living.
