“Vivienne and myself had both lost our spouses, came together, married and
decided to sell our respective homes and buy a family home, suitable for
ourselves and one able to accommodate our now large combined family.” says
Peter “In 1981, we acquired a suitable plot of land, set back from this pleasant
road and commissioned our Canadian timber frame/brick house to be built.
Happily we had lots of input into its design and the result has been our fabulous
home in which we have lived so happily since. The welcoming bright, spacious
hall leads through into other rooms where much wood, natural materials and
sunlight create a warm ambience throughout. Bedrooms are fitted with built-in
storage and the master bedroom has the luxury of a large patio window
opening out onto the garden. The spacious kitchen with its sycamore units and
Aga cooker is elegant and timeless. There is a separate dining room and the
bright and sunny sitting room opens out onto the large patio, perfect for quiet
contemplation or relaxed dining enjoying the garden.”
The flexibility and spaciousness of the house and garden is perfect for
entertaining, whatever the occasion.” continues Vivienne “With our combined
children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, there can be quite a large
number of us gathering, which happened quite recently when I celebrated my
90th birthday here. The large garden is mainly laid to lawn with trees and
herbaceous beds, plus there is a delightful water feature and an idyllic summer
house containing a wooden hammock built by Peter; one of his favourite places.
Summer is a special time in the garden, especially when the family are around
and children are taking advantage of the swimming pool or playing in the
“The town centre of Kenilworth is just five minutes away and has a full range of
shops and supermarkets, independent shops, plus a popular weekly market.
Access to a good range of independent and state schools is convenient and the
nearby golf club also offers sporting and leisure facilities. We are centrally placed
for major roads and motorways, main line stations nearby provide services into
Euston or Marylebone. Birmingham airport is just fifteen minutes away. We both
feel very sad that we must say goodbye to our lovely home but have so many
happy memories of our 31 years living here.”*
