A delightfully restored cottage with exceptional downstairs living space
Believed to date from the 17th century, this pretty semi-detached cottage is built of the local Warwickshire brick under a tile roof. Lovingly restored by the current vendors, the front door opens into the formal reception rooms, with solid oak floors. The sitting room to the right with wood burning stove and bay window, whilst to the left is the dining area.
A door leads through to the open plan kitchen/ dining/sitting room. Designed as the ultimate ‘cooks’ kitchen’ with a large central island block with Britannia five ring gas hobs, double electric oven and rotsserie, a four door gas fired AGA, integrated dishwasher, small fridge, solid granite worktops and game keepers sink. With Yorkshire stone floors throughout the kitchen overlooks a large informal dining area to one side of which is a small sitting area. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large pantry with space for an American fridge/freezer and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Beyond the kitchen is a delightful oak framed studio room with underfloor heating and gas filled triple glazed Pilkington glass, that overlooks the rear garden. To the side is the rear door and access to the downstairs cloakroom. Upstairs are three bedrooms. The smallest room has a mezzanine sleeping area, whilst the other two are generous doubles, (one with en suite shower room). A family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath, detached shower and underfloor heating, completes the accommodation.

Although approached to the front through a cottage garden with gravel path, flanked by mature herbaceous borders, the main garden lies to the rear of the cottage.
A terraced area can be found immediately outside the back door and provides access through a wooden gate to Hollybush Lane.
Steps rise to a formal dining terrace and beyond to the lawn area. At the rear of the garden are a summer house and pergola as well as a further wooden gate providing access to the garage and further off road parking.
