High Street, Kenilworth

Full Details

LANGLEY HOUSE Langley House occupies an enviable position on Kenilworth Old High Street. The Grade II Listed house has been extensively modernised and refurbished by the current owners to an exacting standard. The versatile accommodation is arranged over two floors and retains many of the original features which have been enhanced for modern day living. Be it the flag stone floors with under floor heating or the timeless custom built in kitchen with integrated appliances that leads off the beautiful day room with floor to ceiling oak gable windows.

The accommodation, with exposed beams throughout, comprises a generous entrance hallway with cloakroom, two magnificent sitting rooms with feature fireplaces, dining room, hand painted kitchen, utility and day room with cathedral ceiling. On the first floor there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Given the first floor layout there is the potential to arrange the property to provide an impressive master suite if required. Outside is a double garage accessed off Elmbank Road. The extensive rear garden is an unexpected surprise with Indian Limestone patios and a formal lawn that opens into a meadow garden with ancillary dwelling(redundant) beyond. An increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a modernised Grade II Listed property in the heart of Kenilworth Old Town.
