THE PROPERTY Spring Gardens was formerly the swimming pool house in the grounds of Alma House, which was subsequently demolished and rebuilt as Spring House on part of the original gardens in 2003. The house was specifically designed for the vendors with 2 large first floor en suite bedrooms which could be redesigned to accommodate 3/4 bedrooms. Spring Gardens was similarly redesigned on the remaining gardens with the indoor swimming pool added. Spring Gardens is approached over its own private driveway and set in gardens and parkland approaching two acres with a magnificent indoor swimming pool complex which could be altered to additional accommodation to increase the flexible accommodation at ground and first floor. The house is situated in an elevated position overlooking its grounds in one of Kenilworth's most sought-after locations. This is a rare opportunity to purchase one of the largest plots in this sought after location with the ability to adapt the property to suit ones own specific needs.(subject to limited planning)

GENERAL COMMENTS The property is situated in a conservation area with a number of trees on the site having tree preservation orders. It is unlikely that further expansion or extension of the property is feasible as the local planning authority are opposed to further development due to the situation within the conservation area and green belt. Alteration of layout to the property is feasible without increasing the footprint.
