Kenilworth Planning Wrangle House Back On The Market

One of the most sought-after and notorious houses in Warwickshire has surprisingly returned to the market.

The detached four bedroom house in Clinton Lane, Kenilworth, which overlooks the town’s historic castle and its grounds, should have been a feature of the past after Crosby Homes bought it with a view to creating a sympathetic mews development, therefore improving the site.

The Crosby plans stirred up a local storm and were eventually rejected by Warwick District Council, which granted permission for just a single house.

The Edgbaston-based firm has decided not to press ahead with any development and is instead selling the property through agents Shortland Horne for offers over 250,000.

The firm, which has five offices across the county, has been besieged by inquiries from developers and individuals keen to snap up the property.

Director Mark Sills said:

"It has been incredible. The planning row has been a local talking point for well over a year and people have been following the story and wondering what would happen to the house and its grounds.

"The response has been incredible. In the 24 hours after the boards went up we had around 50 requests for details and they are still coming in. We have had interest from individuals and builders keen to create a new house on the site.

"We have put a closing date on the property of noon on 27 November to force a quick sale and that seems to have concentrated everyone’s minds."

The current house, which could be refurbished or demolished to make way for a new property, sits in grounds which surround the property. It has four bedrooms, two reception rooms, a bathroom and shower room, a large glass veranda and gas central heating.
