This Is Your Chance To Live On The Compton Verney Estate In Warwickshire

If Saltburn has you desperate to live in a rural English manor, here’s your chance: a property on the grounds of the 120-acre Compton Verney estate in Warwickshire is on the market at a guide price of £800,000.

1 The Coach House is formed from part of – you guessed it – the old coach house at Compton Verney. It’s a magnificent Grade II listed building with high ceilings, huge rooms, and far-reaching countryside views. The standout feature, however, is a clock tower (complete with a working bell) which you can access from the library at the top of the house.

On the ground floor, meanwhile, you’ll find a dual aspect drawing room complete with a log burner and patio doors opening out onto the garden, which offers wonderful views across the estate. The kitchen looks out onto the Compton Verney mansion itself, and there’s a separate dining room, too – perfect for entertaining.

Upstairs, there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms, including a huge master bedroom providing more incredible views across Compton Verney’s grounds. You’ll also spot a utility room and the all-important library/snug, which leads to the clock tower.

The Coach House has a private front garden within the estate, as well as a garage, two parking spaces, and additional guest parking. The real highlight, of course, is that residents can enjoy access to the entire Compton Verney estate – and its spectacular grounds, which were designed by renowned architect Capability Brown.

Compton Verney was once the ancestral home of the Willoughby de Broke family, and the Grade I listed mansion is now used as an art gallery, museum and events space. What could be better than living on such a historic estate?
