A farmhouse converted from a former 14th century monastery in Warwickshire has come onto the market for offers in excess of £900,000 with DM & Co. Homes.

The “stunning” Grade II*-listed property known as Priory Farm at Priory Court in Studley is n ow a five-bedroomed detached residence with period features and fireplaces throughout.

Lisa Smith, sales director at DM & Co. Homes, explained that the luxury family home is in the heart of the village with a “large and beautiful” south-facing garden.

Ms Smith said: “This is an extremely unique opportunity to own a large farmhouse that sits comfortably within a generous three-quarters of an acre plot with plenty of space to the front in a fabulous semi-rural setting.

“The property has more than 3,600 square feet of accommodation with gorgeous wooden beams throughout, and is just a short walk into Studley village.

“Priory Farm is a secluded and private residence that simply oozes with history and character, as it was once part of a monastery dating back to the 14th century.

“When the Priory was supressed in 1536, it was granted to Sir Edmund Knightley and it was he who lost no time in converting it into a dwelling.

“But he maintained some amazing features, including the stand-out large chimney breast which dates back to the 14th century.

“Set behind a long private drive, you encounter a stunning historic property that certainly gives the ‘wow’ factor from the moment you enter, exuding warmth and charm throughout.

“The spacious hallway opens up to a ground floor of generous living space, with a cosy snug, kitchen, dining room, games room, toilet, utility and a large lounge.

“A wonderful open-brick chambered fireplace in the lounge acts as the focal point of the downstairs, with light flooding in from windows on both sides of the room, a picture-perfect warm space, ideal for the colder months.

“Upstairs you are greeted by a lovely open landing and high ceiling that overlooks the hall, and there are then five great, spacious double bedrooms, all featuring original oak beams.

“One of the bedrooms benefits from its own staircase, offering a fantastic private space, while a family bathroom and a separate shower room services all bedrooms.”

Priory Farm lies withing the Priory Court development and offers ample parking, alongside a detached double garage, with a well-maintained, south-facing garden at the front of the property.

Ms Smith added: “This really is a stunning property and we’re expecting some intense competition from potential buyers to own their very own slice of monastic history.”
