So you really want an outdoor pool, but you know it’s rarely warm enough in the UK to ever want to go in one. what the hell are you doing
Fear not as this dilemma has been very neatly resolved by one of the recent additions to Warwickshire’s mega money property market. Because this six bedroom mansion has an indoor pool with RETRACTABLE ROOF for just when the sun is actually a factor in cool old Blighty.
Located just outside the coveted village of Lapworth, which has been and still is a home for the stars, this former farmhouse is thought to date back to the 17th century. The property, which has 6.6 acres of land and has secure access from Grove Lane, was only added to Rightmove’s website on April 6.

Offers in excess of £2,950,000 are being solicited for an expansive stack that has everything you could ever want in a dream home. “The garden and rear have an enviable south-west orientation, adding to the enjoyment of the indoor pool and immediate gardens,” Rightmove’s listing reads.
“All set on approximately 6.6 acres, the property offers open views of the countryside and a supremely private aspect. The main house offers just over 6000 square feet of accommodation including the family kitchen with direct access to the garden, a cozy parlor with wood burning stove and a formal dining room with closed wine storage, separate sitting room and garden room.
“The main entrance hall creates an impressive reception and leads on to the games room, guest cloakroom and storeroom.” As you’d expect, the kitchen island serves as a natural focal point beneath an exposed beam ceiling.
The building’s farmhouse roots really show in the sumptuous game room, where a full-size pool table is made almost to appear miniature, like the footprint and height of the ceiling. “The first floor has five excellent bedrooms plus an optional 6th/study, two of which are ensuite,” says Rightmove.
“The master bedroom is huge with green garden views from multiple sides and a balcony with French doors overlooking the rear garden. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet and a superb bathroom with separate shower and stand alone bath.
“The large family bathroom is on the 2nd level up one of the 3 flights of stairs to the house.” Monthly payments total over £12,200 for a 25-year mortgage, facilitated by a 10% down payment on the asking price.
Stunning amounts, but when you’re in the market for this type of property, you suspect money is hardly an issue.
