The Story

The couple were keen to live in the pretty village and they loved the
character of the old house. Over the years since then they have
made their mark on the period home, extending and redecorating
it, keeping it bright and welcoming as well as full of charm.
“We have extended the kitchen and added a dining room on the
ground floor, and another bedroom upstairs,” she says. “We have
replaced the kitchen and redecorated over the years since then,
however, always trying to be sympathetic to the age of the house in
the styles we have chosen.”
UNIQUE FEATURES
Indeed, everything they have added has complemented the original
fabric of Boundary Cottage. Cupboards in the kitchen were
completed by a master joiner and are individual in style.
“The dining room and the kitchen both have vaulted ceilings and
between them there is a stone feature windows, which is very
pretty,” she says. “There is a nice fireplace in the drawing room,
where we have fitted a multi-fuel burner and we have chosen to put
a free-standing bath in the bathroom. We have always trawled
antiques’ shops and centres to find just the right pieces to suit the
house.”
A COOK’S KITCHEN
The ground floor of the house comprises a large drawing room to
the right of the entrance hall, then the breakfast room, which opens
into the kitchen, and where there is also a cloakroom. On the other
side, the kitchen leads through into the dining room.
“I do like my kitchen and dining room; the kitchen is bright and airy,
and easy to work in. It has a central island and is very much a cook’s
kitchen.”
This part of the house is popular with family and friends too:
“Everyone always enjoys being here, we have had some lovely
family gatherings, especially at Christmas. In summer, we like to sit
outside but in winter it is nice to have a roaring fire.”
A SCENIC PLACE
All three bedrooms and the family bathroom are located upstairs.
They are all cottage bedrooms – the ones at the front overlook the
garden.
“The gardens are very pretty, especially in the spring when all the
bulbs burst into flower,” she says. “It is a very private setting, where
we often see wildlife, especially birds.”
Heading straight out of her front gate there are miles of bridlepaths
to follow through the picturesque countryside.
“There is also riding in this area too – it is a very scenic place,” she
adds.
PEACE AND CONVENIENCE
Despite its gentle, rural appeal Strelley village, which is in a
conservation area, is just four miles from the city centre of
Nottingham; the suburbs of Wollaton and Beeston are not far away
and here there is a variety of different shops.
There is a regular bus service into Nottingham from Strelley and
the nearest mainline station is Beeston or Nottingham, where
there are trains to London.
Strelley enjoys close proximity to Junction 26 of the M1, which is
just 1.5 miles away. The A52 to Derby and M42 and A50 are all also
within easy reach and East Midlands Airport is about 11 miles from
the house.
“We have really enjoyed being part of village life here,” she says. “It is
easy to reach everything we need and it is a nice friendly place. You
can have a peaceful life here yet with the convenience of being able
to commute or go shopping very easily.”
