Property Summary

A heavenly collection of brand new properties set in a former 19th century nunnery in Warwickshire. The Convent in Rising Lane is an upmarket new development which combines historical features with the latest in modern luxury, as a result of a restoration and development programme that has fused the old with the new.

Full Details

Situated ideally for Lapworth and Warwick Parkway Railway Station within walking distance from Baddesley Clinton National Trust house, The Convent offers 18 individual properties, each with their own secret heritage and historic architecture. Original features have been retained including gothic arches, stained glass windows, cathedral ceilings and a stunning porte cochere. The focal point of The Convent is a secluded and picturesque courtyard, with vibrant cherry trees and a soothing fountain - offering an exceptional journey throughout the development and a bespoke take on surrounding rural Warwickshire. This development offers the utmost security with 'lock up and leave' opportunities, whilst retaining a mature and established feel to return home to.

English Heritage recently designated The Convent as a conservation area: "These buildings are clearly of historical significance and represent a largely unaltered collection of late 19th Century buildings set within their own grounds."

The Abbess, The Convent's show piece remains loyal to its surroundings and retains many fine original features seamlessly combined with a striking contemporary interior. The spacious accommodation is arranged over three floors and comprises a stunning bespoke kitchen with a range of Miele integrated appliances and provides ample space for informal dining, a separate utility and guest cloakroom and a well-proportioned living room with two sets of French doors leads onto the garden.

The main staircase rises to a spacious landing with two double bedrooms; the second bedroom has a ensuite shower room and the master has a fabulous ensuite bathroom with his and hers vanity basins, large shower and freestanding bath.

On the second floor are two further double bedrooms and two stylish ensuite bathrooms.

Externally, the landscaped garden takes full advantage of a south facing aspect and a paved terrace provides a delightful area for soft summer seating. In addition, the property benefits from two parking spaces and a garage.
