5 5
Located on the outskirts of Coventry in the leafy suburb of Eastern Green, this property breaths character and was a serving vicarage to the adjacent church for 100 years.
The Gables is a substantial and elegant 5 bedroom detached family home set within 0.43 acres (google maps) that ranges an impressive 3840 sq ft in total.
The house is well maintained and retains a lot of the original features that you would expect from a period property such as high ceilings, large windows, wide door frames, high skirting boards, picture rails and fireplaces, which feature most of the reception rooms and four of the five bedrooms.
The Gables has breath-taking views of rolling countryside and beautiful mature gardens at the front and rear. It is located at the end of Church Lane where the absence of passing traffic enhances the beautiful private and tranquil setting.

Seller Insight - Seller Insight - Located on the edge of Coventry in the leafy suburb of Eastern Green, this characterful period home was a serving vicarage to the adjacent church for 100 years, since when it has had only three owners: an artist, an architect and the current family, all of whom took care to preserve its original features.

The house is currently in the care of brothers Stephen and Jonathan. "Our parents bought The Gables, which has a wonderful sense of history, in 1987. It was designed by 'rogue architect' Samuel Sanders Teulon (1812-73) who, according to a Daily Telegraph feature, was a master builder who rejected the Georgian ideal of restraint in favour of 'Victorian architecture at its most aggressive'. Teulon's approach is evident at The Gables which has more gable walls than ought to be possible in a period home" says Stephen. "The edge of Coventry location proved ideal for our parents: it overlooks the countryside and yet is within a friendly community. The large garden with a splendid Wellingtonia and Cedar of Lebanon was essential for our father who grew flowers, fruit and vegetables and spent much time tending the lawns. Our mother was particularly drawn to hosting guests" says Jonathan.

The Gables is surrounded by fields on three sides with St Andrew's Church and St Andrew's Church of England Infant School (also designed in matching style by Teulon) on the other side. The church has a thriving community who organise many social activities and The Warwick Arts Centre a world-class multi-venue arts complex is only a 10-minute drive away. Local shops are a five-minute walk along Church Lane. The property is ideally located for commuters to either Birmingham or London due to its close proximity to Tile Hill train station and the A45.

"The Gables is a Victorian architectural gem that was a lovely home for our parents for over thirty years. It combines the good facilities of Eastern Green with space and calm that comes from being on a city boundary overlooking the greenbelt," adds Stephen.

Jonathan says The lounge is my favourite room because its large south-facing bay window overlooks the beautifully cared-for garden.

"As a London dweller, I've always greatly enjoyed being able to walk out of the back door to enjoy the beautiful garden, or out of the front to let the children or dog roam free across country fields.

"Christmas family meals around the large dining room table were particularly memorable.

"Alas, the house is only for sale because our father passed away and our mother needed a smaller home closer to us."
Both brothers note that: "Most of all we'll miss the warmth and hospitality that The Gables generates."

Accommodation - Accommodation - Entering the property through a beautiful Gothic stone arched doorway is the porch and continuing through the front door into the hallway, you are greeted with space accentuated by 10ft ceilings. The hallway gives access to the main living room, dining room, study, utility room, kitchen, breakfast room and cellar.

Off the hallway to the left is the study, boasting a stone feature fireplace with tiled hearth and a large 6ft high window to the side elevation. Off the hallway to the right is a cloakroom giving access to a WC. Continuing off the hallway, with views of the south-facing garden, is the main living room and dining room both having lots of period features such as fireplaces, coving, ceiling roses and 6ft high windows with original internal wooden window shutters. The main living room has a very large bay window that allows floods of light to accentuate the feeling of space. It also allows you to really appreciate the mature garden and the onward countryside views.

The hallway doglegs to the right giving access to the utility room, cellar, kitchen and breakfast room.

The kitchen has a modern theme with integrated appliances and overlooks countryside at the front of the property. The kitchen gives access to both the rear south-facing garden and to the garden room/workshop (with WC). The workshop is large (20ft x14ft) and because it abuts the rear of the breakfast room it could easily be converted into more internal living space by opening up a breakfast room wall.

Rising to the first floor is the beautiful and elegant dogleg staircase and stunning decorative glass window which spans the full height of the stairwell. The first floor has 8ft ceilings which really do give you a sense of space. The landing gives access to four very large double bedrooms all having feature fireplaces and high windows with bedroom one and two benefiting from a Jack and Jill ensuite. The fifth bedroom is a good size with views of rolling countryside to the front of the house. This floor also benefits from a shower room, WC and family bathroom (in addition to the Jack and Jill ensuite).

Outside - Outside - To the front there is a large driveway giving access to an external single garage and two lawns. The Gables is bordered at the front with a post rail fence and mature hedgerows that give a high degree of privacy without obscuring the countryside views. The driveway leads to the rear garden via a wrought iron gate. The rear south-facing garden can also be accessed from the kitchen via a paved patio area which is great for alfresco dining and entertaining. The patio also gives access to the workshop/garden room and, on the other side, the external garage. The paved patio is segregated by a raised decorative brick-built flowerbed. The rear garden is split between a vegetable patch, fruit trees and large lawn.
