About this property
A quintessential, two-bedroom stone cottage with beautifully manicured gardens and a one-bedroom annexe, sitting in a quiet corner of this popular Leicestershire village.
Enter the property via a small entrance porch which leads into the sitting room that has a feature fireplace with wood burner inset, an understairs cupboard, stairs rising to the first floor and a door into the kitchen.
The kitchen has a good range of floor standing units under wooden worktops, an enamel sink with mixer tap over, an integrated electric oven with induction hob above and space for a tall fridge freezer. The oil central heating boiler is also located in the kitchen.
Just off the kitchen is the snug with windows on three sides providing plenty of light and views over the garden, there is exposed stonework, wooden panelling and a wood burning stove.
To the first floor there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. The stairs rise to the first-floor landing with bedroom one sitting just off to the right, offering built in storage and windows to both the front and side. The landing then leads round to bedroom two which sits to the rear of the property also with built in storage and a window looking over the garden. Both bedrooms are served by a bathroom comprising a bath with shower over, low flush lavatory and wash hand basin.
The property's living accommodation is completed by what was an old timber and glazed lean to that has been transformed into a one-bedroom annexe complete with kitchen area, en-suite shower room, a small log burner and a set of bi-fold doors spanning almost the entire width of the annexe, opening out into the garden.
The property internally has some beautiful period features such as the exposed stonework throughout that has been expertly pointed with a lime mortar and the kitchens exposed ceiling joists and lovely flagstone floor.
To the front of the property there is off-road parking and access to the detached double garage and additional parking to the left-hand side of the property with a gate leading into the rear garden which also provides a separate access to the annexe.
The rear garden is immaculate and has been beautifully landscaped with an abundance of mature flowers, shrubs and specimen trees that provide year-round interest. There are raised flower beds sitting on top of low-level dry-stone walls and a timber summer house sitting in the corner of the garden looking back towards the house. There is also a productive vegetable garden area to the side of the property and sitting behind the garage is a timber potting shed and an area where the oil tank is located.
This beautiful character property has been lovingly cared for and upgraded by the current owner and is offered to the market with the agent's highest recommendation for an internal inspection.
