Full Details

THE PROPERTY This stunning Grade II listed house is located within the picturesque hamlet of Stareton which lies equidistant to Royal Leamington Spa, Kenilworth and Coventry. Occupying an enviable position at the heart of Stareton it sits attractively within its grounds with extensive gardens to three sides.

The kitchen leads into the garden kitchen which makes the perfect entertaining area set beneath the oak pergola with grapevine looking into the delightful gardens. On the first floor are four bedrooms and a family bathroom with a freestanding bath.
Outside there are extensive gardens to three sides of the property all enjoying attractive views from an elevated position. Situated within the grounds is an oak garden office and large shed.
