Former convent offers three stunning country homes

Tue 18 Sep 2018

Three mind-blowingly stunning homes converted from a former convent in Lapworth have just gone on the market through ehB Residential.

The 19th century building, which has been transformed to create 18 individual residences, has been praised for its historical significance by English Heritage.

 The buildings are set around a tranquil monastic style courtyard with fruit trees and a fountain, and original features such as gothic arches, stained glass windows and cathedral ceilings abound. There is even a carriage porch – or porte cochere to use the correct architectural parlance.

 The grandest of the three homes, The Abbess, offers a magnificent 2,300 sq ft over two and a half floors. It has a stunning kitchen dining room filled with handmade units and Miele appliances, large lounge with French doors to the garden and four bedrooms all with en suites.

Sacre Coeur offers a vast open plan kitchen dining living room, four double bedrooms, two with en suites, and a study, along with a family bathroom and utility in 2,000 sq ft.

Mother Gabriel is an unusual triplex apartment with its own private lift and a top floor kitchen living room with doors opening onto a large terrace with vistas. With 1,200 sq ft of space it offers two bedrooms, with the master having a dressing room and palatial en suite with claw bath.

Prices range from £600,000 to £950,000

"The stress of moving house and renting a property out is enough for even the strongest to endure, however, having bought our house through ehB Warwick and rented out our previous home through them too, I can honestly say things could not have gone any better. The purchase went without a glitch and the whole process took 8 weeks. ehB worked extremely hard to keep all parties well informed and managed everyone's individual needs well. They found a tenant for us within a day, who moved into our house upon completion of our purchase. We can honestly say that without a doubt we would use ehB in the future and would recommend their services to anyone considering buying, selling or renting a home."
