Full descriptionA delightful 3 bedroomed cottage of immense charm and character occupying an attractive backwater setting within the highly desirable village of Clipston, which lies close to the borders of Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.
Retaining a wealth of beams, this charming cottage has been sympathetically refurbished in recent years by the current owners, approached via a green oak porch entrance with a oak panelled stable type door opening into the hallway off which is a useful downstairs shower room/utility room. The surprisingly spacious ground floor accommodation includes a good sized sitting room with oak boarded flooring, beamed ceiling and cast iron log burner, open plan to a well appointed breakfast kitchen with handmade built-in units, granite working surfaces and a cooker range. A multi pane glazed door leads through to the conservatory which enjoys views over the gardens. Located off the sitting room is an inner hallway with attractive staircase off and useful storage area beneath with coat hooks, off which is a charming lounge with attractive brick fireplace, cast iron log burner and oak beams.
On the upper floor off a passaged landing with two secondary glazed windows and three double glazed skylights providing an abundance of natural light, with pine braced and latched doors leading off to 3 good sized bedrooms and a superbly appointed bathroom with shower over the bath and a built-in range of cupboards.
The property is approached via a shared driveway and pair of wooden gates which open onto a gravel driveway providing off road parking. The gardens form a most attractive feature of the cottage with a paved sun terrace and wooden pergola with climbing plants, shaped lawned area with beautifully stocked flower and shrub beds with a variety of mature trees and specimen shrubs. The garage has been converted into a superb workshop with side windows, power and lighting, and there is an enclosed paved courtyard with two sheds and greenhouse.
