Tenure: Freehold

A cottage full of character with Tardis tendencies, this property has a room for everything and a space for everyone. Sunny days in a garden full of secret corners or cosy nights by the log burner; a stylish studio for work or a haven for relaxation; parties or quiet times, this cottage has it all.

The basics: inside
Built in the early 1800s but with every modern touch you could want, this cottage is a proper Tardis. Four versatile reception rooms AND a large self-contained studio building mean it's absolutely perfect for anyone wanting to run a business from home, or indeed for a large sprawling family. You have the choice of 3 sizeable square rooms for your lounge, one with a log burner. The dining room with built-in bar leads out onto the garden and is great for dinner parties, plus there's a useful utility room and downstairs WC. Upstairs there are 3 light and airy double bedrooms (one with en-suite) and a further single bedroom, family bathroom with separate large rain-head shower, and the feature you'll end up fighting over: a walk-in wardrobe.

The basics: outside
The property has driveway parking for up to 3 cars and a private south-west-facing garden, meaning that you can have your morning coffee in the sun and catch the afternoon rays from a different spot. Numerous secret spaces are created by mature planting, flower-scented archways, split level decks and paving, making the perfect spot for barbecues and dinner parties that spill out of the multiple doors into the garden.

Practical details:
The property has gas central heating provided by a Worcester Bosch combi boiler.
There is a burglar alarm.
Property is connected to mains electricity, gas, water and drainage.
Double glazing has been installed to all but the listed feature windows at the front of the property, where secondary glazing could be installed but has never been required.
The property is Grade II listed because of these feature windows.
The garden is fully fenced and enclosed, with rear access from the private driveway.

There is a Primary School in the village, and a secondary school in the next village over (on Rightmove please see the School Checker tab underneath the photos for more information).
Leicester city centre is under 10 miles away, with Syston train station around 2 miles away.
Property will be sold with vacant possession.

More details:

Snug: 13'2" x 12'2" (4.04m x 3.66m)
At the front of the cottage, this cosy room has ceiling beams, solid oak flooring and the original arched feature windows from the early 1800s, giving it bags of interest as soon as you step through the front door. There's a useful walk-in cupboard to the side of the front door for coats and shoes, and an archway leads through to the stairs.

Sitting Room: 13'2" x 17'1" (4.05m x 5.17m)
More feature windows, beams, oak flooring and a cast iron fireplace with gas fire give this room even more character than the last. Plus with French doors out to the garden, the room is double aspect with lots of light and plenty of space to use as a super-stylish office, a sitting room, a craft room, or whatever you fancy!

Utility Room:
With Worcester Bosch combi boiler, space and connections for the washing machine, a utility sink, wood-effect laminate worktop and storage cupboards.

Downstairs WC:
WC with vanity sink.

Lounge: 12'9" x 14'9" (3.9m x 4.5m)
This lovely room has one wall facing the garden that is almost entirely glass - there's a door to the garden plus a pretty bay window and a further window to the side. It gets loads of light but the steps down from the hallway make it feel cosy, as does the log burner on cooler nights.

Dining Room: 9'5" x 21'7" (2.87m x 6.58m)
With more interesting roof beams, this room is so large you could easily fit a table for 12 or even more if you wanted. There's another door out to the decked area of the garden, and a built-in bar at one end of the room. Just think of the fabulous dinner parties you could hold here...

Kitchen: 9'5" x 13'0" (2.87m x 4.0m)
There are 2 gas hobs in this kitchen; a standard 4-ring hob plus another 2-ring hob. Just think how easy that'll make Christmas dinner this year! There's also an electric fan oven at eye level, an extractor fan, a 1.5 bowl sink and space for a tall fridge/freezer. Garden access is available from here too.

Detached Studio Building: 17'8" x 16'1" (5.07m x 4.90m)
Originally the garage and retaining the double doors onto the driveway with an additional single access door from the garden, this red-brick building has been professionally converted into a sizeable studio. It has laminate flooring, loft access, plenty of power and light, is totally separate from the main house, and is perfect for a home-based business, an artist, a serious crafter or even a stroppy teenager.

Bedroom 1 with En-Suite: 12'9" x 14'9" (3.9m x 4.5m)
A fresh, calming room with white laminate flooring and a window looking out over the garden. There's plenty of fitted furniture providing ample storage including a wardrobe, multiple chests of drawers and two bedside chests. The en-suite has an electric shower within a glass enclosure, WC, sink and a towel radiator.

With oatmeal carpet, window overlooking the garden and loft access.

Walk-in Wardrobe:
This really is the feature to fight over - hanging rails on both sides, built-in shelving at the end, and a roof window lighting the whole thing up. Mirrored sliding doors on the outside mean you've got the entire landing as your catwalk.

Bedroom 2: 8'1" x 12'2" (2.45m x 3.70m)
A light and airy double bedroom with feature window, oatmeal carpet and a built-in stepped storage area.

Bedroom 3: 13'4" x 9'10" (4.05m x 3.00m)
A restful double bedroom with alcove shelving, oatmeal carpet and a feature window.

Bedroom 4: 11'10" x 6'10" (3.60m x 2.08m)
Currently used as a dressing room to avoid fights over the walk-in wardrobe, this could also be a lovely nursery or a single bedroom. Or a craft room. Or whatever you want really. It's carpeted, and the window looks out onto the garden.

Bathroom: 7'11" x 10'7" (2.41m x 3.23m)
This fully tiled bathroom has a large sized shower cubicle with rain head and integral shelving for toiletries, luxury deep curved bath with shower attachment, stylish bowl sink and plenty of built-in storage. The feature window makes it feel more suited to pampering rather than simply the practical.

A fully enclosed, multi-level space with areas of decking, paving and planting providing lots of different 'garden rooms'. Designed to be relatively low maintenance with established shrubs and no lawn, it's an ideal space for entertaining or for simply enjoying the quiet. During the summer you really can bring the outside in with all four rooms bordering the garden having doors that open out onto it. Facing south-east the garden gets both morning and afternoon sunshine, and there's plenty of room for multiple seating areas. There are raised beds for vegetable planting, and a shed for the necessary storage.
A secure gate leads out to the private driveway at the rear.

This really is a beautiful, stylish cottage with lots of character and truly versatile rooms, inside and out. Could it be your perfect home?
