THE PROPERTY A rare opportunity to purchase a magnificent character residence located at the entrance to the exclusive Fieldgate Lawn. Fieldgate Lawn was created in the late 1970s and comprises 7 exclusive individually designed properties in the heart of Kenilworth Old Town Conservation area. Number 1 was built in circa 1899 as the original property in Fieldgate Lawn and in the late 1970s was split into two semi detached superior properties which have been sympathetically restored, extended and superbly refitted and designed by the current owners over the last 16 years. Whilst the property has many modern features, it retains many of the attributes you would wish for in a property from its era with superb panelling, magnificent entrance and staircase, hall and landing and many outstanding features.
The property is entered via the entrance porch with an atrium ceiling and then into the central staircase hallway. Throughout the property is feature panelling to the walls and the hallway has the original easy rising staircase to the first floor landing. The principal rooms are all arranged to enjoy the beautiful gardens to the rear with shallow sash bay windows and doors onto the terrace.

Bi-folding doors take you through into the modern fitted kitchen and family room, both with underfloor heating. The kitchen has a range of high quality understated modern handle less wall and base units and quality appliances. The base units have Mistral counter tops and a bank of appliances to one wall that incorporate fridge and freezer and a range of ovens.

The guest suite is situated at the other end of the landing and comprises a double bedroom with dressing area and a further en suite bathroom.

The property occupies a site of approximately 1/2 acre and has a wide driveway that offers hard standing for a number of vehicles and leads to the side double garage with remote up and over door. The remainder of the fore garden is open plan in design and mainly laid to lawn. To the rear of the property is a stunning landscaped garden and terracing. Directly to the rear of the property is a shaped paved terrace with a central pond. The terrace extends to a sun lounge area with a potting shed. The terrace leads onto the formal lawn with topiary "Parterre" trees and a seating area. Beyond is a vegetable area with raised beds. The garden flanks Fieldgate Lane with deep shrubbery beds and a number of mature trees with tree preservation orders which surround the large central lawn.
