The property enjoys a very pretty semirural location and boasts around seven acres of lovely gardens and grounds, so the setting is both peaceful and picturesque. However, it also sits within close proximity to an array of well-served towns and villages, and is only around half an hours drive from the centre of Birmingham, so everything one might want or need is within easy reach. The main part of the house was built in 1691 and it got its name from the fact that it used to be a tannery where animal hides were turned into leather. My parents bought the property back in 1983 and they always said that they were attracted to the many opportunities that the property as a whole offered our family. Its a wonderfully large house with a good amount of land and a tremendous sense of privacy, and its size and space allow for large families, multi-generational living or those who simply want to lose themselves in the countryside. However, at the same time you can enjoy having the peace of mind of knowing that theres a good selection of amenities, shops and some lovely restaurants nearby.The property benefits from having extensive grounds, which wrap around three sides of the house and in addition there are also two good-size paddocks and stables so it could be ideal for anyone who wants to keep horses. Whether youre green-fingered or not, the gardens are a wonderful place to relax and get away from it all, and a real haven for wildlife; its not unusual to see a deer or two wander across the lawn. The house itself is fantastic for entertaining, but the gardens have provided a stunning backdrop to some magical summer get-togethers with family and friends.The kitchen is definitely the heart of the home. Its a very large and very sociable space, and therefore at most parties, more often than not everyone ends up congregating in there.What makes the location so very good is the fact that the immediate surroundings are peaceful, leafy and green, however the house sits in close proximity to some excellent schools in both Solihull and Warwick, a good selection of shops and amenities, and its a place that benefits from superb transport links into both Birmingham and London. The main hall, which has a beautiful vaulted ceiling, is definitely a standout feature of the house. Its full of history and yet it also has such a warm and welcoming feel.The Tan House has provided us with the most amazing opportunities and memories. We will take all of that with us and Im sure that it will offer the same and more to the next owners.Local Area - Lapworth - As one of the most desirable villages in Warwickshire, Lapworth is the perfect place to live, surrounded by stunning countryside and offering complete tranquillity, yet offering excellent road, rail and airport links.

Lapworth has a really friendly community with plenty of clubs and activities for all. It has a local cricket club, not to mention three excellent pubs all within walking distance.
