Vendor Interview - Initially we were attracted to the location and the potential to turn an empty shell into our family home, says Karmjit.
Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, the house is enclosed on all sides and accessed through electric gates. Were surrounded by lots of greenery, including laurel bushes and the big, old oak tree in our neighbours garden. The garden is landscaped with grey decking and replicates the style of the house being light and modern. The rear garden is well established and I think it looks perfect, its a very relaxing space.
Were well placed for access to the main roads including the A45, A46, M45 and M1 and we like to spend time in Leamington which is only a 15-minute drive. The David Lloyd fitness centre is nearby and use the gym and play badminton there. My wife is a keen runner and were near to Warwick University which is a lovely place to walk or cycle around, as is the Kenilworth Greenway. We tend to do most of our shopping in Waitrose which is 5 miles away and its easy to pop to Tesco which is only 1.5 miles away and our children attended the nearby King Henry VIII school.
We particularly like the convenience of the house and how it is laid out, the rooms flow easily into each other. It works very well both aesthetically and functionally and our Smallbone kitchen still looks like new with the high quality, solid oak units. The dressing room and en suite from the master bedroom is brilliant for those times when my wife has to leave in the early morning and the double garage has a gym upstairs which is great as we are an active family.
There are lots of windows in the house, so it is always light and airy. The oak flooring downstairs leads out onto the decked area, keeping the same theme throughout. We designed it this way and we love it, its like a show home and everything looks brand new!
We spend a lot of time in the cinema family room. The blackout blinds work very well, as does the 7.1 sound system and its a very light and airy room (when its not used for movies) with views looking out to the front and rear of the property.
Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area
The property is situated off a private driveway and is secure and private, yet at the same time, its easy for me to travel to Birmingham airport for work trips to New York. The motorway network is great for access to London.
Memorable event (if not another favourite room or unique feature)
My wife and I are both from large families and everyone comes to us at Christmas as we have plenty of space. We have a fridge and cooker in the garage which is particularly useful when we are catering for the whole family and with parking for 6 cars in the driveway, the house is great for entertaining.
What theyll miss most / why they are leaving
Weve lived here for 17 years and we will miss the memories of our children growing up and of family celebrations. Weve become very good friends with our neighbours and we will miss them too. Its a shame to be leaving as this is a lovely home but we want to realise our dream of building a new house just half a mile or so away.
