Clifton Upon Dunsmore, Rugby, Warwickshire
2014 Built 4-Bedroomed Detached Home with 2 en-suites. Contemporaty living in a village location. Moreover,
the property resonates the character, at least from external appearance, of a contemporary barn conversion. Evidently is it not ... but it certainly very sympathetic to a home in a village location.
Underneath The Spreading Chestnut Tree:: - Individually designed homes are always of interest to me. The Architect has to consider so many variables when submitting plans. How it sits on the plot? What obstacles need to be considered? How to create a level of harmony with its surroundings? With all things subsequently considered, in 2014, Castenae (The botanical name for the dominant Chestnut Tree on the driveway) moved from the drawing board into reality and manifested itself out of the ground and into the proposition that we see today. Given the fact that the property is a relatively modern build it does actually benefit from lots of mature specimen trees within the plot and it becomes very apparent that a lot of consideration has been taken toward the positioning of this house within its plot. North Road, Clifton-upon-Dunsmore is, and always will be, a sought after location for both interesting property styles, easy access to Rugby and its commuter links to London and the fact that the highly celebrated primary school (Outstanding OFSTED) is walking distance away.
Approach: - A gravelled driveway leads to the old Chestnut Tree (abundant with conkers at the time of writing) which stands like a sentinel in front of the house. The driveway, to my mind, is reminiscent of those spaces that one stumbles across in ancient French villages where a gathering takes place to play Petanque (Boules). Once past the tree the remote control will open the double garage doors to give you access to both the garage and the utility room and onwards to the kitchen should one find themselves laden with their weekly shop.
Making An Entrance: - Assuming the front door is the method of entry then one is graced with an exceptionally creative entrance hallway. It is worth taking a moment to look at the way in which the first floor landing acts as a floating gantry to arrive at the second en-suited bedroom. The hallway feels lofty looking up to a galleried landing and acts as a great conduit to navigate the flow of the ground floor. Giving access to the Lounge, Study, Downstairs Cloaks and Kitchen/Diner. Subtle colours and lighting as well as Adriatic tiled opus flooring, with underfloor heating, gives the entrance a contemporary gallery feel and the opportunity and space to consider installing a real statement piece to greet guests on arrival.
Flow, Form & Function: - As the house is an L shape the sense of space is strong and considered. The Sitting Room, at one end is a good size, quiet & cosy with inglenook and mulit-fule stove. The sitting room also has a great view down the entrance driveway and bi-fold doors to the rear garden (southerly aspect). At the opposite side of the hallway you will find a modern Shaker Style fitted kitchen with dining area plus lazy seating and again bi-fold doors to the rear garden. With a Utility behind and a double garage beyond the flow of the house and its functionality for modern living is really well considered. With regard to the sleeping arrangements on the first floor we find 4 Bedrooms in total, 2 of which have en-suites, all well-proportioned for the house.
Launch Price Notes: - 0.61m,141.73m (2,465) - Typical village 'New Builds' in the area usually selling in the range of £300/ft2 to £325 ft/2 . If one excludes the double garage and just considers the habitable space, this property offers approximately 2000 ft/2 . Needless to say... the property has been priced competitively and there is every expectation that the achieved selling figure is likely to higher than the Launch price. (See Floorplan)
