Dating back around 200 years, this charming three-storey beamed character cottage is sure to impress.
To the ground floor the living room, complete with a wood-burning stove and a stunning slate floor, provides a cosy space with a warm and inviting atmosphere for relaxing evenings.
The dining kitchen is thoughtfully designed, providing ample storage and space for appliances as well as room for a dining table. From here, you can step outside and enjoy the front garden, a quintessential English cottage garden where seating areas are hidden among flowers. From the kitchen there are stairs up to the first floor and down into the cellar which is perfect for storage.
Moving up to the first floor via a narrow return staircase, you will find a comfortable double bedroom, along with a stylish shower room with modern fittings. A cupboard on the landing houses the central heating boiler which was installed in 2018 and is regularly serviced. Head up to the second floor, where you will discover another double bedroom and a spacious study landing area which can easily accommodate a single bed but would also be perfect for those who work from home or desire a dedicated space for hobbies or a small seating area.
The property's exterior is just as appealing as its interior. The cottage style garden at the front is beautifully maintained, with vibrant flowers and lush greenery creating a picturesque setting. A useful outside store could be modernised to give bike storage.
Situated in a central village location, this property is conveniently located close to amenities, shops, and restaurants. Enjoy the proximity to walks, as this home is nestled in a conservation area, allowing for easy access to scenic trails and serene natural surroundings.
Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to own a piece of history in a sought-after location.
As with many older properties, there are often unusual quirks and this cottage is no different. The seating area found to the rear of the property has been used in this way for over 13 years and is by verbal agreement with the owners of Quarry Hill Grange Residential Home. This area does not fall into the ownership of the property. The outbuilding at the bottom of the garden is split into two with the first section owned by the neighbouring property number 10 Watling Street. The property is of traditional construction with a single brick rear wall which has been insulated. There is also pedestrian right of way over the front of the property to the neighbouring properties.
Please note: Quarry Hill Grange Residential Care Home has a planning application submitted to be converted into residential apartments. Further details can be found on the Charnwood Borough Council planning portal with planning application number P/22/1947/2.
