Full description

As soon as you walk through the door of this three bedroom Grade II listed thatched cottage you will be captivated by its charm and warmth.

Dating back to circa 1350, this period cottage has been finished to a high standard with modern amenities yet retains many original features befitting of its nature. The kitchen/breakfast room is the heart of the home and has a real country cottage feel with the Aga being a focal point and the double aspect windows affording plenty of natural light. During the summer, the property remains cool owing to its construction, yet the warmth is evident during the winter months, which is enhanced when the log burner is lit giving a particularly cosy feeling. The cottage is located on the edge of a cul de sac which ensures a truly tranquil location and is complemented by beautifully maintained cottage gardens which have a variety of shrubs and plants which offer an array of colour throughout the seasons. Divided into sections, the garden has a lovely area for al fresco dining and a pretty mature wisteria meanders over the side elevation.

Thurlaston is a well regarded village and highly sought after as few houses come to the market. A small no-through village which retains a traditional feel with a strong friendly community, the village offers many social activities for those who wish to get involved, including an active fete, walking club, cider club and a progressive supper club. Neighbouring Dunchurch is just 1 mile away and offers many day to day facilities, including a primary and junior school, a variety of restaurants and public houses, florist, doctors surgery and library.

Within easy reach of major road networks in particular the M45/M1, Thurlaston is close to the market town of Rugby which is approximately 5 miles and has a frequent Virgin Rail train service to London which takes just under 50 minutes and wide variety of shopping facilities. Royal Leamington Spa is 8 miles distant, Coventry, 13 miles.
