About this property

Are you yearning for a home with period charm, steeped in history but have a desire more space for your growing family? Then this simply special and rather spacious four double bedroom cottage with separate home office, three reception rooms, double garage plus a farmhouse kitchen with two oven Aga, may be just what you have been dreaming of. It has no upward chain, too.

Immerse yourself in the character and charm of this delightful cottage. Take in the mellow tones of the Pitsford stone as you approach the door tucked to the side on Nursery Lane. Then prepare to be surprised by the immediate sense of space as you enter the reception hall. Stripped oak floorboards, a pitched pine staircase, the open fireplace with c17th Century Georgian oak mantle and panelling all combine with the brace and latch doors to provide a feast for your eyes and the perfect backdrop for your next family home.

Welcome to Nursery Cottage, formerly the workers cottages and garden nursery to Maidwell Hall, this home offers space. The 16ft sitting room is flooded with natural light through the side window and French doors to the rear, while the cast iron wood burning stove set within the exposed brick hearth offers you the perfect focal point. Across the hall is the dining room which could serve as a play room/study. The inner lobby leads to a generous guest cloakroom and the farmhouse style kitchen with its cherry red two oven Aga. A stable style door and opaque, leaded windows offer plenty of light. Bespoke fitted units provide ample storage with plenty of preparation surface space.

As you head upstairs you come across the dedicated home office/study, with open shelves flanking the entrance providing space for books. A skylight above allows for natural light. The sense of space continues with the master bedroom, with its own handy ensuite shower room tucked to the corner and fitted wardrobes. The guest bedroom also benefits from a built-in wardrobe while the third and fourth bedrooms both offer space. The family bathroom feels fresh and contemporary with its white suite comprising freestanding bath, wash hand basin and WC.

Accessed via Nursery Close, which is owned by Nursery Cottage up to its rear curtilage, you will find parking space for a vehicle in front of the five bar gate with further parking space beyond. The rear garden has been loving landscaped over the years to provide a private courtyard terrace with outbuildings and storage. Timber steps up lead to the lower lawn while further steps lead up to the main lawn. A wooden pergola offers you shaded seating that takes advantage of the southerly aspect and views out to the west over the courtyard. A path to the side sweeps round to the workshop and store. A double detached garage with electric up and over door and personnel door into your garden sits in the top corner.

Maidwell is a desirable north Northamptonshire village with a local pub and church together with an excellent primary school and Maidwell Hall, a boarding and day preparatory school. The popular market town of Market Harborough is close by with a wide range of facilities including shops, restaurants, cafes, museum and leisure centres. For the commuter, the nearby A14 links with the M1 and A1, and both Market Harborough and Rugby have mainline services to London.

From Market Harborough town centre proceed south along the A508 Northampton Road through the village of Kelmarsh. Upon entering the village of Maidwell, proceed past the Stags Head pub, and you will see the property on your left-hand side on the corner of Harborough Road and Nursery Lane as identified by our For Sale board.
