Offers over £700,000
A beautiful Grade II listed Grange Barn which was sympathetically restored and converted in the 1990s. Provides great family accommodation with the added benefits of a lovely one bedroom self contained ground floor annexe and extensive garaging.
The property boasts many vaulted ceilings with exposed rafters and trusses, an inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove. The whole property is double glazed and has been very well maintained.
The property makes a wonderful stunning lifestyle family home with a real “wow” factor but would also be ideal for a small business / cattery / kennels (subject to planning) and has separate gated rear access from the road.
The barn is positioned on the edge of the lovely Warwickshire village of Long Itchington, some seven miles to the east of Royal Leamington Spa. The village has several public houses, an annual beer festival, church, a post office and general store.
Very good communication links with Leamington Spa station just 15 mins away (1 hour 15 to London), M40 junction 12 just 20 mins away, M69/M6 15 mins away and M45 just 10 mins away.

Kitchen (4.44m x 4.17m / 14’7″ x 13’8″) which has a flagstone floor, a good range of floor and wall units and an island with seating and drawers under. The work tops are hardwood. There is a Watson oil fired range (similar to an Aga, but can be switched on and off), and the Bosch appliances include a hob, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Stable doors open to the rear patio and rear garden.
The breakfast area (5.00m x 2.89m /16’5″ x 9’6″) has a vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers. A stable door leads through to:
