Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The property has wonderful period features throughout - from the original wooden doors, to the exposed beams, feature fireplaces and the rustic kitchen you'll get great pleasure from this property both inside and out.

The gardens are fantastic - quiet except for the sounds of birdsong and the occasional cockeral, and full of natural life. Because the property backs onto fields of grazing land, in the summer months especially, you can see garden birds, ponies, pheasants, squirrels, rabbits, butterflies and bumblebees. As the sun goes down you can enjoy watching the swallows and swifts in the sky, and at dusk you can often spot pipistrelle bats as well. The gardens are bursting with colour - with flowers including roses, budlia and foxgloves - and there are lots of mature trees and shrubs with three conifers in the front garden, two apple trees and a silver birch in the back garden.

The house was extended several years ago, providing a much larger lounge as a result - with windows on both sides and glazed doors leading out onto the back garden there is plenty of natural light in this room. The centrepiece of the room is a brick chimney with a stone hearth and a wood burning stove.

There is a downstairs WC, and also a third double bedroom at the oposite end of the cottage, which could alternatively be used as a sitting room, play room or study.

Upstairs, both bedrooms are doubles, and they also both have ceilings which follow the pitch of the roof, with exposed beams and dual aspect windows - certainly not the type of typical square bedrooms you get with newer builds!

There is a detached brick garage off the driveway at the front, and in the back garden there is a brick shed, and a large summerhouse which has lighting and power, and would make an excellent office or garden room.

The property has predominantly wooden double glazed windows, and has gas central heating. It also has a security alarm fitted, and uses a smart meter.

The highly regarded historic conservation area of Strelley Village, was first recorded in the Doomsday Book in 1086. The village has quite a secluded atmosphere as it is not on a through road for traffic, although bridleways ran from the village to Cossall to the west, and to Kimberley to the north. Strelley is also notable for being the upper terminus of one of the earliest recorded railway lines in the world, the Wollaton Waggonway. the railway ran to Wollaton. Horse-drawn coal wagons travelled to their destination on wooden railway lines. Horses can still be regularly seen watering by the local village pub, merely moments away, other nearby amenities include the lovely Mulberry Tea Rooms, set within the historic grounds of Strelley Hall.
