THIS A MOST ATTRACTIVE DETACHED COTTAGE WHICH OFFERS LARGE ACCOMMODATION THAT IS ARRANGED ON THREE LEVELS. THE PROPERTY HAS LANDSCAPED GARDENS TO THE FRONT, SIDE AND REAR WHICH ARE PARTICULAR IMPORTANT SELLING FEATURE OF THIS LOVELY HOME.

Being situated on Plant Lane, a sought after road in the original Sawley village, this double fronted detached cottage property which was built circa 1830 is a home that we are sure will suit a whole range of buyers who are looking for something that is individual with character and a cottage garden arranged to three sides. The property was originally the Estate Managers cottage for The Harrington estate and is therefore steeped in history in terms of its association with the local area. The property has been extremely well maintained by the current owners and for the full extent and quality of the accommodation that is included to be appreciated it is strongly recommended that all interested parties take a full inspection so they can see the whole extent of the property and the landscaped gardens for themselves. The property has similar quality homes to either side and being situated on Plant Lane is close to a number of amenities and facilities provided by Sawley and to excellent transport links which are literally only a few minutes drive away.

This most beautiful home is constructed of brick to the external elevations under a pitched tiled roof and the accommodation derives the benefit of GAS CENTRAL HEATING. The property is entered through the front door into a hallway and to the right there is a large lounge which includes a dining area and this room has a feature fireplace. To the left hand side there is a further sitting room which could alternatively be used as a separate dining room and there is the large dining kitchen which is well fitted and has a cottage feel complete with 'Sandyford' AGA style oven. Extending across the rear of the property is a large CONSERVATORY which provides an additional ground floor living area and also connects the property to the most beautiful gardens. There is also a ground floor w.c. To the first floor there are three double bedrooms, the master bedroom having a full bathroom EN-SUITE and then there is a shower room which serves the rest of the property. To the second floor there are two further bedrooms with feature sloping beamed ceilings and these rooms provide two additional bedrooms which means the property offers five double bedroom accommodation. The gardens are a particularly important feature of this property and over the years the gardens have been open to the public with the current owners having organised an annual open garden event which has been noted in both the local and national press. The gardens have been landscaped and have various areas for people to sit and enjoy outside living and start at the front of the property and extend to the side and rear where there are several areas for people to sit and enjoy outside living. We are sure that people will enjoy viewing this property both internally and externally as it is a most distinctive and beautiful home with a lovely feel. Outside there are also various outbuildings, one of which is the original stable and coach house for the property which has been opened up with glazed doors leading out to the gardens, there is a greenhouse where the current owner prepares all the plants that are distributed around the garden which over the years have brought so much colour to the outside areas, there is a further brick storage building and there is also a summerhouse.
