Ashow is a small village and civil parish in the Warwick district of Warwickshire, England, about 2.5 miles (4 km) south-east of central Kenilworth. Ashow has around 51 houses and a small church, The Assumption of Our Lady, which dates from the early 12th century. The village is accessible by the B4115 Coventry Road (just off the A46/A452 roundabout), and the southernmost tip of the parish lies on the River Avon. The earliest-known documented reference to Ashow (or “Asceshot”) is in the Domesday Survey of 1086.
The village has a friendly, welcoming community, Village Club and various activities. Local shopping, amenities and leisure facilities can be found at Leamington Spa, Kenilworth, Warwick & Stratford-upon-Avon, home to the Royal Shakespeare theatre. The property is ideally located for the commuter with Coventry and Warwick Parkway Stations located approximately five and four miles away respectively, with journey times to London Euston and London Marylebone taking 57 and 87 minutes, respectively. The M40 (J15) 7 miles away, provides access to Birmingham to the north and London to the south. Birmingham airport and Birmingham NEC are a 15-minute drive away. The area boasts a wide range of private, grammar and state schools to suit most requirements including Bablake Independent School, King Henry VIII School, Warwick Preparatory School, Warwick Boys School and Kings High School for Girls. A number of sporting facilities are within easy reach including golf courses, sailing and fishing at Draycote Water and racecourses at Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon, whilst Cheltenham is about an hour away.
Throughout the ground floor, stunning oak flooring, panelled walls and matching doors with antique furniture, Inglenook fireplaces with complementary oak bressummers and underfloor heating throughout provide a warm, traditional and welcoming atmosphere. The reception rooms are light and spacious, each with fireplaces housing log burners or open fires. The heart of the home kitchen and garden room are open, spacious and beautifully decorated with sage Shaker style units, 4-door Aga, granite work surfaces and built-in appliances. The garden room is surrounded with four sets of French doors, each opening onto the wrap-around terrace. The property was designed for each room on the ground floor to open onto the terrace and patio areas, allowing for al fresco seating in the sunshine, wherever it falls throughout the day.
The light and open design continues to the first floor throughout the bedrooms, with triple aspect windows in both the principal suite and bedroom two. An Inglenook fireplace in bedroom four and spacious en-suites and main family bathroom provide significant space and storage options.
The second floor is presently configured as two further bedrooms and a storage room, but options to rearrange present themselves in this area.
Outside, the gardens are southerly facing, lawns are landscaped, with mature shrubs and hedges to the boundaries. A wild pond and an abundance of mature trees including silver birch, beech, copper beech and cedar provide a natural haven for wildlife and tranquillity, with far reaching countryside views.
The terrace is laid with reclaimed period flagstones, planted with box hedged border, photinias, and a central fountain. Away from the lawned garden – which previously incorporated a lawn tennis court, a double garage with electric doors and an integral workshop provides significant storage space for the property owners. To the front of the property, space for multiple cars and a sweeping driveway with turning circle are all accessed from the road via wrought iron double electric gates with intercom. Directly opposite the gates is a paddock measuring approximately two acres, providing opportunities to families with equestrian interests.
This truly is an exceptional property, within a delightful village, in a rural setting, whilst within commuting distance of larger towns and cities.
