A stunning home converted from a former convent in Baddesley Clinton offers a tranquil haven in the countryside, with a National Trust property and beautiful woodland on its doorstep – yet with easy access to the motorway network.
Sacre Coeur in Rising Lane is part of a19th century building which has been praised for its historical significance by English Heritage.
The four double bedroom house offers just shy of 2,000 sq ft of living space including a vast open plan kitchen lounge dining room which opens onto a large private garden and terrace.
A secluded monastic style courtyard with fruit trees and a fountain leads into the light, airy hall off which leads a utility room with glorious stone mullioned window, a study and a downstairs cloakroom.
Two of the four bedrooms have their own en suites, and there is also a family bathroom.
Outside are a timber garage, and two additional parking spaces.
The high spec property enjoys a handmade walnut kitchen with Miele appliances and ceramic limestone floors. Indeed, there is craftsmanship at every turn, with bespoke oversized doors and architraves and custom-made fitted wardrobes in the master bedroom.
Despite its historic provenance, the well-insulated house, nestled behind automatic gates, benefits from 21st century luxuries including air source underfloor heating, a sound system with flush ceiling speakers and an integrated TV reception system.
Sacre Coeur is available at £875,000.
