Milestone House

An extended four bedroom period house with 3 reception rooms in a popular and established part of town with wonderful gardens and a 0.45 acre total plot.

Milestone House dates from around 1903 and has

over time been extended and adapted and now

provides an impressive, spacious and light family

home. Over the last 30 years the property has had a

large two-storey extension constructed on the

Southern elevation whilst not encroaching on the

impressive gardens. The benefits include a fitted alarm

system; re-fitted kitchen and gas-fired central heating

with sealed unit double-glazing throughout. The

gardens are on three sides of the house and the total

plot measures around 110ft wide by 180ft deep. The

current owners have very much enjoyed and improved

the gardens since 1989 and these are a particular

feature of the property. There is a wonderful selection

of established flowering and specimen trees in the

plot of just under half an acre.

Milestone House has been an incredibly happy family

home for Mike and Angela for over 22 years, the very

heart of the family, which has seen three generations

come, go and return frequently.

The large, light, spacious house and private

surrounding gardens lend themselves beautifully to

family living and entertaining, whether a family

wedding reception or children’s garden party.

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday

life, on a wooded section of Dunchurch Road, the

mature, landscaped gardens are quiet and peaceful

and provide a wonderful backdrop – the ideal place

to get together or escape to a quiet corner with a

book and a glass of something. The sitting and dining

rooms have three sets of patio doors leading onto

terraces, ideal for catching the sun.

Only minutes from Rugby town centre and a stone’s

throw from the beautiful open Warwickshire

countryside, Milestone House is perfectly placed

whatever you want to do, wherever you want to go –

an ideal base for those on foot or with wheels,

whether popping to the shops, commuting to work or

taking a trip into the countryside.

Its central location provides the essential ingredients

for achieving the delicate balance between work, play

and family. Several commercial centres, the open countryside

and fantastic local amenities are on your doorstep.

And when you’re ready for something different, within

half an hour by train, you can be standing in the

middle of Birmingham’s thriving cultural, arts and

entertainment scene where shops, restaurants, cafes

and bars sit comfortably alongside galleries, theatres

and museums.

With road and rail links on your doorstep travelling

further afield isn’t a problem. It takes 50 minutes by

rail to reach London and only 45 minutes to reach

Birmingham and East Midlands airports – perfectly

located for the busy working family.

As one chapter of Milestone House’s life draws to a

close, there’s no doubt that the house will continue to

bring as much fun and joy to another family. *

The gardens are a particular feature of the property and the frontage

impressive selection of established trees, many being the subject of tree

preservation orders. There are two fine birch trees along with a Scots pine

tree and a double cherry tree. The main section of garden is laid to lawn

with some very well maintained and colourful flower borders.

The driveway is enclosed by established hedgerow. To the right there is a

large holly tree with some rare species of conifer trees (some older than

the property). There is a Victorian style lamppost and security lighting on the

front of the property. To the side of the garage there are wooden fence

panels and a gate leading to a storage and compost area.

The brick built garage has two up and over doors with a pitched and tiled

roof providing good storage facilities. The garage was constructed around

25 years ago and adjoins a neighbouring garage in Milestone Drive. It has

both light and power connected with a side door. The driveway provides off

road parking for around 8 standard vehicles.

Side and Rear Gardens

To the South of the property there is a well-stocked fishpond and a wide

area of garden again enclosed by wooden fencing and walls with established

trees and bushes. There is a private terrace running along the South and

West of the property allowing you to enjoy all the afternoon and evening

sun. In the far left corner there is an impressive beech tree along with a

Wendy house and a smaller cherry tree. The rear garden is also beautifully

stocked with colourful flower borders throughout. There is a wooden

pergola with trellis fencing providing support for a fine wisteria and roses.

There is a small kitchen garden and a greenhouse near a mature bay and

birch trees. There is also a useful potting shed. The rear garden measures

approximately 110ft x 55ft and the total plot extends to around 0.45 of an acre.

extensive range of shopping facilities including The Clock

Towers shopping centre. Rugby also has a main line train station

where Virgin trains convey London commuters to Euston in

Lawrence Sheriff, Princethorpe College, King Henrys in

Coventry and the world-renowned Rugby School.


From the centre of Rugby head towards the gyratory system

taking the A428 Dunchurch Road passing Rugby School on your

left hand side. Continue down the hill for just over a mile

passing the Harris school on your right hand side. Just after you

will see ‘Milestone Drive’, Milestone House is the very next

driveway on your right hand side identified by our Fine &

Country ‘For Sale’ board.
