It sits in front of the 13th Century Astley Parish Church and is secluded with mature trees and provides a peaceful place to relax on a summers evening. Behind the church are the ruins of Astley Castle which has recently been renovated by the Landmark Trust.

Vendor Interview - This truly enchanting, family, home is set back from the lane in the quiet, tranquil, village of Astley. The house and village is steeped in history and School House, was once utilised as teaching establishment, until the adjacent school was built and then it became the home of the Headmistress of the school.

The village enjoys a superb, rural, location, with the house being surrounded by fabulous, open, countryside. The primary school is a 5 minute drive or a 20 minute walk over the fields, whilst schools for older children are located in nearby villages. Major road links are outstanding, with the main line station in nearby Nuneaton providing efficient journeys into London Euston. The village is beautifully tucked away, but access into Coventry or Birmingham is very easy. Astley Castle is a renowned, historic, feature of the village. Sadly, it was damaged by fire a few years ago but it has been inspirationally renovated and, just a few years back, it was awarded a prestigious Stirling architectural award and now many popular and varied activities take place here.

Andreas desire was to live in a small village, in a house with character and one which contained beams. This house, with its historic past, ticked all the boxes and we came to live here in 2012. The house had been much treasured by its previous owners but we have added our own touches, not least of which was to replace draughty windows with double glazed ones. They exactly replicate their unique originals, but the house has benefited from their installation. Our number has increased since we came to live here but it is the ideal family house for us. We love so many things about the house, especially its traditional beams, large wood burning stove set in the inglenook fireplace in our main reception room, all combined with a wonderful safe environment for our children to enjoy freedom and safety.

Favourite Room Our large conservatory opens out from the main reception room and from the kitchen. It is fabulous when we have friends and family around, as the sociable open flow is ideal. We spend lots of time in here relaxing and listening to the sounds of the countryside, and it has such a lovely outlook onto to the garden.

Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area: Our house sits amidst a lovely garden to both the front and rear, but all extremely secluded. This space is very special for us; we have raised beds in which we grow vegetables but, also, have magnificent productive fruit trees. We also have space for chickens.

Memorable event (of not another favourite room):With such convenient and generous space both indoors and outside, parties here are always relaxed affairs. We recently held a party for several young children which was a very happy occasion.

What they will miss/why they are leaving: We will be very sad to say farewell to this magnificent home. We feel very blessed to have lived in such a house with our young family, and do feel that we have been privileged to be have been the custodians of such a home, one which has given us so much happiness.
