Full description

The Thatched Cottage, a truly wonderful property that oozes true English tradition and heritage, this home is definitely one of a kind. And to top it off, this property comes with its own secluded two-bedroom bungalow and Orchard. This unique and enchanting property has open fireplaces, York stone flooring, traditional oak beams and even a minstrel gallery off the master suite overlooking the room that the owners refer to as the ‘Grand Hall.

Ground Floor - On entering the property the first thing that strikes you is the woodwork and attention to detail. The flooring is Yorkstone and there are many exposed beams. There is a downstairs WC accessed from the entrance hall. To the right is a room that can only be described as The Grand Hall which has a stunning open fireplace, vaulted ceilings and a mezzanine to the master suite. To the left there is another reception room with an open gas real flame fireplace, this room naturally flows through the dining room that looks out to the patio area of the garden. Through the dining room there is a snug again with real flame fireplace and then the kitchen that has a door to access the rear garden

First Floor - Upstairs there are three bedrooms, one which could be split for a further bedroom. The large master suite has a dressing area, ensuite, and main bedroom area which has double doors to a mezzanine overlooking the grand hall. There is also a main family bathroom.

The Bungalow - This is a two bedroom detached property with living room, kitchen, two bedrooms, a main bathroom, and an extensive sun lounge to the front of the property. This property has been rented out and provides an excellent income/investment and for anyone upsizing to the property it could really help out.

Vendor Interview - A distinctive and iconic Chocolate Box Cottage set upon the approach to the bustling Warwickshire town of Nuneaton. The Thatched Cottage is a deceptively large property set within an acre of mature, landscaped grounds. For thatch cottage enthusiasts Ron and Hazel, it was the cosy atmosphere and wealth of original features that first attracted them to the property where they have lived for the past 30 years.

The size of the property is deceiving from the roadway; with an acre of grounds and an independent fully fitted two bedroom bungalow beyond and out of site of the main dwelling. There is plenty of space and scope for a growing family, small business or entertaining guests. With excellent access to the wider road and rail networks and enough space for a small office, The Thatched Cottage could provide the ideal position for working from home. There are many services including several popular public houses within the local vicinity as well as a private 18 hole golf course just a four minute walk away. Beyond the golf course there is an abundance of footpaths and bridal ways across countryside and farmland as well as a towpath ideal for dog walkers.

Built in 1925 as a farmhouse, the unique appearance of this property is a talking point amongst the community. The current owners have lovingly restored the property with reclaimed materials and have added a spectacular extension with York Stone flooring; in keeping with the traditional style. Thatched properties are notorious for their insulating qualities, holding in the heat over the winter months and allowing the property to cool during the summer. On a midwinters evening or a frosty morning the crackle of a real log fire burning in the grand fireplace, provide a snug and pleasant environment for relaxing with the family.

Step out into the spacious gardens and you are in another world. The well-established orchard provides a lush crop of eating and cooking apples, plums and pears. In the summer there is nothing more relaxing than sitting by the large pond enjoying the peace and sanctuary of the conifer lined gardens with just the trickling sounds of the water feature and a songbirds lullaby. Climbing roses add to the magic of this nostalgic picturesque atmosphere.

Location - The property provides excellent access to the Lutterworth Road which in turn connects with the M69 which in turns connects to the A5 and the M6. The George Elliott Hospital is also only a short drive away.
