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.

"Chris and the team at eHB have provided my wife and I with an amazing service. Given we are the other side of the world in Sydney, selling a house in the UK can be challenging/daunting. Chris made sure that the whole process was incredibly smooth. eHB provided us with sound advice, have been very efficient and quick to follow up any queries. We have also used eHB to rent the property for the last 7 years and it's been a great experience. The vetting and qualification process for both tenants and buyers has been sound. We have had amazing tenants and we had a great long list of potential buyers that were well qualified. Chris and the team got the house off the market in record time, for a great price. I would highly recommend eHB for both sale and rental. Thanks for your great efforts guys, it's been a pleasure working with you. Cheers."
