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.
"We have found EHB really good to work with - you have all been very proactive on our behalf, and provided good down to earth advice. Your documentation in the booklet and the plan of the house was exemplary. This is in contrast to the more expensive and more national company dealing with our purchase. We would strongly recommend EHB to anyone wanting to sell their property in this area."
