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.
"Dear Josephine and all at ehB. Just a quick note to thank you for all your help and support. It has been invaluable during a very stressful time, and I cannot begin to explain how your thoughts, advice and courage has got us through. We are thrilled to begin our lives in our new home."
