THE PROPERTY
Plough Cottage is situated in the heart of the village overlooking the pretty church, which is the smallest in Leicestershire and sits on the village green. The property has been owned by the same family since 1937. Formerly an inn, two cottages and a barn it has been sensitively restored into an extremely comfortable, deceptively spacious home. It is listed Grade II and retains many original features such as, exposed beams, beamed walls, stone walls, inglenook fireplaces, original doors, window seats and more recently, reclaimed wooden panelling to the drawing room and hall. The accommodation is arranged over two floors and in brief consists of: reception hall, drawing room, sitting room, dining room, kitchen breakfast room, conservatory, cloakroom, boot room, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and an outside office (formerly a garage). Access into Plough Cottage can be gained from a useful back door through the boot room, from the conservatory or from the more formal front door into the reception hall. The drawing room has an inglenook fireplace, panelled walls, book-cases, window seats and two separate staircases to the first floor. The comfortable sitting room also has a grand inglenook fireplace and book shelves to two walls. A multi-pane glazed door opens into a spacious conservatory with attractive tiled floor. The kitchen breakfast room is fitted with an excellent range of floor/wall units, spaces for dish-washer, fitted refrigerator/freezer, stainless steel sink, granite work-surfaces, painted corner cupboard, Belling range-style electric oven, with six burner hob and separate induction hob which is set into a stone inglenook, and tiled floor. A step leads up into the dining room, which has a painted display/china cabinet to one wall and French doors to the gardens. The boot room (off the kitchen breakfast room) has a fitted sink and door to the former stable yard. There is also a large cloakroom leading off the entrance hall with cloaks cupboard. Access to the first floor is gained via the choice of three staircases. There are three double bedrooms with an en suite bathroom to the principal bedroom, a single bedroom and a further bathroom.

TO THE OUTSIDE
Double wrought iron gates within a stone wall open onto a gravel driveway with ample parking and turning space and sweeps around to an outside office, the former stable yard and to the stabling. A side door from the main driveway, leads to the gardens over a gravel pathway. The delightful private gardens are in the main laid to lawn, edged by deep borders, planted with a selection of Spring flowers and framed by mature shrubs and trees. Arranged around a tarmacadam courtyard (formerly a stable yard) are detached stables with four loose boxes (two of which are now a workshop and a store in the former tack room.). The detached office is fitted with electric heaters, a built in bench and two walls fitted with book shelves.
