  • Substantial Five Bedroom Period Farmhouse
  • Range of Traditional Brick Barns with P.P. for Conversion to Five Residential Units 
  • Range of Farm Buildings, Yard and Stables
  • Former Manege
  • Three Pasture Paddocks
  • Approx. 9 Acres In All

The property has been owned by the same family since 1937 when the current owner’s father visited to buy a cow and calf but he loved it so much he ended up buying the whole farm. In February 2015, the vendor obtained planning permission to convert the traditional brick barns into five residential units, and in the agent’s opinion, the property in general offers further development opportunities subject to the necessary permissions. In particular the land, barns and stables have clear potential for equestrian use and indeed have previously been used for this purpose. 

Churchover is an extremely attractive village in the heart of England and well located for road and rail links with M1, M6 and A14 all within a five mile radius. Rugby has a full range of shops, schools and amenities as well as a mainline rail station with regular services to Birmingham, Leicester and London Euston.

OUTSIDE

The property is set within the village and has a private driveway with ample parking and a Car Port with a useful adjoining Store.

The main gardens are very pleasant and secluded comprising lawns with a number of mature trees and mature borders

TRADITIONAL BRICK OUTBUILDINGS

Set adjacent to the farmhouse in a U shape, overlooking a central concrete yard, the barns were formerly the village bakery but in more recent years have been used for storage.

On 17/02/2015 Planning Permission was granted under Application No. R14/1981 for conversion to four residential dwellings plus a two storey rear extension and first floor mezzanine extension together with external alterations. Full details can be viewed on Rugby Borough Council’s website.

The works were subsequently started with completion of the extension to add utility and bathroom and these works were signed off by the Council on 05/11/2019.
