Are you looking for a home with potential to create an annex and planning permission to extend? A home gym? Or perhaps you’re looking for room for your collection of classic cars? This impressive detached family home could be perfect for you!

It’s a pleasure to introduce you to this beautifully presented five-bedroom detached family home. The Old Post Office originally served as Long Lawford’s village post office for many years before being converted into an impressive family home. With its history of being the village post office, this stunning family home benefits from being situated on a very generous plot of land and is of course located in the heart of Long Lawford village which makes accessing the village’s local shops, Long Lawford Primary School and King George V Playing Field a breeze. In more recent years the property has been extensively extended to the front, rear and side making it an ideal home to accommodate a growing family.

As you approach the property you are immediately struck with a sense of privacy and space thanks to the very generous block-paved driveway which offers parking for up to 6 vehicles. The driveway is enclosed by a brick wall with a wall top railing to the front and decorative wooden fencing on each side. The front entrance leads directly into the integral garage which is truly a unique feature for those of you who are car enthusiasts, looking to create a home gym or perhaps even to add an annex to your home for elderly relatives. The integral garage offers space for up to 3 cars to be parked inside, skylight windows which keep the space well lit with natural light, two remote operated electric shutter doors, tool storage on the wall mounted tool racks, heavy duty circular stud interlocking rubber tile flooring and of course, a wall mounted television and dart board! With the space being fully plastered with connection to the electrics and multiple plug sockets it makes a truly impressive garage space but equally as it has been so well constructed the space could easily be repurposed into living space.

The main entrance to this stunning family home can be accessed by approaching the property through the oversized side gate which we have been told has been deliberately made to be wide enough to allow a motorbike to be wheeled from the front of the property to the workshop in the rear garden. Upon entering this lovely home, you are greeted by a spacious entrance hall with ample space for shoe and coat storage. The entrance hall provides access to a cloakroom as well as to the integral garage.

To the left of the entrance hall is the reception room which offers a very cosy inviting space to welcome guests. The reception room offers ample space for a large corner sofa and is home to the original 1898 post office safe where letters and packages were kept secure before being distributed to their respective intended destinations. Not only is it a great conversation starter with guests but the safe is fully functional as a safe and makes an attractive showpiece thanks to the ornate polished metal design.

To the right of the entrance hall you can access the modern kitchen-dining room and the generous living room. The spacious living room is beautifully presented and offers ample space for multiple sofas and a television on the opposite side of the room. The coal-effect gas stove is an attractive centrepiece to the room and offers a warm and cosy atmosphere. The living room is always bright and airy thanks to the double glazed French doors that lead onto the South facing rear garden making it a wonderful space to rest and relax with loved ones at the end of a long day.

The sleek kitchen-dining room is very stylish and comfortably accommodates a large dining table beneath the two skylight windows which fill the space with natural light. The kitchen features granite work surfaces, a range of cream fronted eye-level units with over cabinet lighting as well as matching base units, space for a large American-style fridge freezer and of course a wide range of built-in appliances including an inset Belfast sink, a built-in 4 burner gas hob, an integrated cooker hood extractor fan, a built-in double oven, an integrated microwave oven as well as a built in dishwasher. That’s not all! This spacious kitchen-dining room benefits from South-facing, double glazed French doors to the rear which provide a wealth of natural light throughout the day. The modern kitchen-dining room links to a utility space which offers auxiliary storage and worktop space and is currently home to a washing machine and a tumble dryer.

If we go up the staircase to the first floor you are met with a spacious landing which provides access to a storage cupboard which houses the mains gas combi-boiler and to the loft which is partially boarded and benefits from electrical lighting and a built-in wooden loft ladder.

The spacious master suite is a fabulous size, comfortably accommodating a large double bed as well as room to accommodate a range of substantial wardrobes which will provide a wealth of storage space, what’s more the suite benefits from attractive views of the generous rear garden. Connected to the master suite is the spacious ensuite which is equipped to meet all of your day-to-day needs with a large integrated bath with electric shower and screen, a pedestal wash basin, a heated towel rail, WC, wall mounted mirrored cabinet and a frosted glass window. The ensuite is a relaxing space designed to help you prepare for the day ahead. There is also planning permission which would extend back from the master suite, for more information on this please visit the Rugby Borough Council website, planning application reference: R23/0118

There are two further bathrooms on the first floor, the first is close to the stairwell and has a very luxurious modern feel. This bathroom has a large integrated bath with shower and screen, a built-in vanity sink unit with WC and additional storage cabinets as well as a heated towel rail, a wall-mounted mirrored LED cabinet and a frosted glass window. The second offers a large integrated bath with electric shower and screen, WC, a wash basin with vanity cabinet, frosted glass windows and an extractor fan.

There are four additional bedrooms, each of which are large enough to comfortably accommodate a double bed with room for additional furniture, more than enough space to accommodate the kids!

If we proceed down to the large South-facing rear garden you’ll instantly be struck by the wealth of space offered! The rear garden is fully fenced and is then further shielded by coniferous hedgerows on all sides which really gives it a feeling of privacy. The rear garden has been wonderfully landscaped and benefits from a large Indian stone patio, perfect for barbeques! An automated watering system to the potted plants and a very generous solid wood gazebo with wooden side panel screens and connections in place for a generous hot tub. Can you imagine relaxing out in the hot tub with a glass of champagne on a warm summer evening? The rear garden also offers a greenhouse which is connected to the automated watering system, a spacious lawn and a large wooden deck which benefits from multiple LED lights making it a real attraction at dusk and a wonderful space to sit back and relax and take in the summer sun with family and friends. To the rear of the garden is the workshop. The workshop offers a large decked area to the front and is fully connected to the electrics with electrical lights and plug sockets. The workshop has a security alarm, a large window as well as a glazed door and is well lit by natural light on the inside, internally the workshop offers many workbenches, bench vices and a wealth of tool storage more than enough to meet all of your DIY needs.

Located in the heart of the sought after Warwickshire village of Long Lawford. With Cherwell Way Play Area and the King George V Playing Field which regularly hosts community events both within walking distance, this family home has got something for everyone! Long Lawford is home to a wide variety of footpaths and countryside walks which surround the village and offer stunning views of the historic Holbrook Grange manor house as well as of the River Avon. The property offers easy access to a wide variety of local amenities including a number of local village shops, two local takeaway restaurants and two local public houses.

Rugby also offers the options of Lawrence Sheriff and Rugby High grammar schools and Rugby School which is one of the oldest and most prestigious private schools in the UK.

This property is ideal for commuting, being just minutes away by car to Rugby Town Centre, Elliott’s Field Retail Park and Rugby Railway Station which offers a direct train route to London Euston and Birmingham New Street. The property benefits from excellent public transport links with the 86 bus route which links the property to Rugby town centre as well as to Coventry city centre.
