Convent conversion offers pied a terre for peace seekers

Tue 23 Oct 2018

A triplex apartment with a roof terrace looking out across the Warwickshire countryside would make a perfect pied a terre or lock up and leave for someone needing something a little different from a traditional weekday apartment.

Mother Gabriel is one of several stylish houses and apartments converted from a former convent near the National Trust’s Baddesley Clinton and beautiful Hay Wood, yet within easy access to the Midlands motorway network.

The 19th century building has been praised for its historical significance by English Heritage and this particular property has its own private lift offering an alternative to taking the stairs from the ground floor hall to the vista-commanding roof terrace and open plan kitchen living room.

 Mother Gabriel – all the property names have an ecclesiastical flavour - leads off a tranquil monastic style courtyard with fruit trees and a fountain.

 With 1,200 sq ft of space, the apartment offers a master bedroom suite containing a magnificent en suite bathroom with claw bath and a sizeable dressing room. It has a snug for cosier times when one wearies of the everlasting countryside views, which could be used as a second bedroom, and a shower room for guests.

The beautiful bolt hole, ideal for those living in their family home at weekends and working in Warwickshire or Birmingham during the week, is available through ehB Residential for £600,000.

"Hi Juliana, I was driving past your offices today and realised that I never contacted you to say thank you for all your help in the purchase of Villiers Street. I am so very sorry that it took me so long, it’s been a crazy few weeks! From my first property viewings with Clive to collecting the keys from Chris on completion day and all the parts in-between with yourself, I thoroughly enjoyed working with ehB. I saw lots of properties with an array of local estate agents and ehB were the most professional, knowledgeable and personable out of all of them (by a country mile!). You were fantastic at keeping track of the process the whole way through and really made me feel like an important customer. After speaking with many friends and family, it seems this is a very unique experience of an estate agents (particularly as a buyer) and therefore I really want you to know how appreciative I am. The house is really starting to feel like home already and I’m so pleased with the purchase. I have already sung the praises of ehB to my friends, family and colleagues. Once again, thank you for all your help in the purchase. All the best, G Sharp "
