Calvert Close Rugby CV21 1TZ
When the current owners of this Four Double Bedroom Detached Property for sale on the outskirts of Strawberry Fields bought it from plan in 1998, it had followed a 12 month search for a suitable property around the Warwickshire area. It proved to be such good value, offering much more accommodation than in other properties, that they decided to look no further.
In fact, the property still offers any buyer excellent value for money!
The position of this lovely home is also quite unique due to the rear garden being private and un-overlooked by other houses.
"We only intended to stay here for 2 or 3 years before moving on. However, as luck would have it, it turned out that we’d picked a great place to live."
Tucked away at the end of a cul de sac, it meant their son and his friends could play safely outside and enjoy the playground that’s just 100yds away or so.
Open fields opposite, that enable just a short walk to Clifton-upon-Dunsmore and the Primary School there, are great for dog walking or for the children to play.
"In the summer, when our son was little, he loved playing Pooh sticks in the river on our walk home from school across the fields from Clifton."
Their son also added:- "It’s a safe neighbourhood with acres of recreational space that allowed me to explore, make friends and be independent. We would ride bikes, build dens and play in the stream. It was a strong factor in us staying in the house for as long as we did. I made some great friends here."
The property itself has Four Double Bedrooms, three of which have built in wardrobes. The Master Bedroom is a lovely sized room, with views over looking the front and has been updated with a refitted contemporary Ensuite Shower Room.
Even the smallest bedroom has made a very comfortable study, as at one point both the owners worked from home.
"One colleague commented on how lovely it was to hear the sound of birds in the back ground when we were on a call to them."
The Family Bathroom has also been refitted with a modern white suite and complementary Metro tiling.
Now it’s fair to say that it’s downstairs that needs a bit more updating, but this is where you can get really creative.
The layout is original so there’s currently a very pleasant separate Lounge and Dining Room which have double adjoining doors, providing views to both the front and patio door access to the rear garden.
The Kitchen is adjacent to the Dining Room with the Utility and Downstairs Cloakroom following off. You will probably want to update all these areas at some point.
So, you have a couple of options here. You could update, quite inexpensively, the ‘doors and drawers’ to give the Kitchen and Utility a more modern look, or you can use the opportunity to remodel the downstairs by opening up the Kitchen and Dining Room to create a more ‘Open Plan’ style of living space, which many of you like to enjoy now and then update the Kitchen to your very own specification.
There really is quite a lot of potential here to adapt this home to your family’s own needs.
There is a garage which houses the Gas Central Heating Combi Boiler and can also be conveniently accessed from an internal door from the Hallway. There is plenty of parking on the drive too.
Rugby itself is a nice market town, very well served by both road and rail links (London Euston by train is possible in under an hour), with the M1, M6, A14 and A5 all close by.
It’s testament to the area that many of the original owners who bought these properties from new, still live here. The owners recount how they used to enjoy BBQ’s and street parties with neighbours over the years as their own and their children’s friendships grew.
It was only in 2014, with regret that the family felt they had to move on to accommodate their extended family’s needs, but reluctant to sell No.24, they have had it successfully rented it out for the last 5 years.
The time has come now, however, to sell and to allow a new family to start a new chapter of their own here.
The property is being sold with NO CHAIN and if you would like more information or would like to arrange an appointment to view, please contact Clare and the team at Campbells who will be happy to help.
