About this property

This charming period cottage, nestled on a quiet lane within the idyllic village of Billesdon has been lovingly refurbished to provide the perfect retreat. It has a quintessential country garden and the added benefit of a garage and off-road parking. With an abundance of charm and character it could be the perfect place for you to call home.

Step into the quarry-tiled porch, where you will find space to hang your coat, and immediately feel the character of this home. The spacious kitchen/diner features exposed beams and has been refitted with a range of contemporary base units providing ample storage. Natural wood work surfaces offer plenty of preparation space, while a range-style oven is nestled within an inglenook to the side. The ceramic sink with mixer tap and drainer, enjoys an attractive view of the garden. Tucked in the corner is a walk-in pantry with space for a fridge and freezer. The sitting room feels bright and spacious, yet cosy, with exposed beams and a log-burning stove inset to the chimney breast.

Upstairs the sense of charm and character continues with exposed beams to the landing. You will find two double bedrooms, both enjoying views of the garden and a refitted bathroom featuring a contemporary white suite comprising bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin.

The garden has been lovingly landscaped to provide the perfect spot for relaxation in the sun. There is a paved seating/dining terrace which flanks the canopied porch, leading on to a lawn with bedding borders, bursting with colour. A paved path leads to a gravelled terrace with further bedding borders. Through the trellis you will find a kitchen garden, perfect for growing your own fruit and veg. To the side is a timber potting shed and further canopied potting area. The garage is situated to the side with a gravelled parking area and timber framed summer house, ideal for whiling the hours away in peace and comfort.
