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
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. *
