A detached thatched cottage, with a delightful garden, in a Conservation Village
Property The Post House is an immaculately presented detached property positioned in the centre of the charming village of North Kilworth. Whilst extended, the core is thought to be one of the oldest houses in the village.
The house is of checkerboard brick and thatch construction, whilst the detached garage, with adjoining outbuilding, is of brick and shingle construction. The enclosed, landscaped rear garden is beautifully presented. The property has been comprehensively renovated during the owners tenure and exudes charm. Thatched in 2012, the accommodation has fine features throughout.
The entrance porch opens onto a spacious, clay tile floored reception hallway, with wood burning stove and beamed ceiling, which forms the core of the ground floor from which all the rooms are accessed. The two reception rooms are symmetrical and south facing. The drawing room is particularly well-proportioned and dual aspect. French doors open to the garden and there is an open fireplace. The ceiling is beamed and the main beam was reputedly sourced from North Kilworths former railway station, a victim of the Beeching cuts. The triple aspect breakfasting kitchen has been created from the amalgamation of two rooms and is lovely, with a clay tiled floor and two sets of doors opening to the garden. The extensive suite has integrated appliances and a central island unit, as well as an oil fired Aga and separate electric oven and hob.
On the first floor, the spacious master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a contemporary en-suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms with high, timbered or gabled ceilings, and large, double glazed windows bathe the rooms in light. There is also a family bathroom.
Outside The garden is delightful. Enclosed and largely walled, with formal lawns and well stocked flowering borders, which provide a deep depth of colour, together with avariety of semi-mature tree species. Tucked away to the rear of the garden is a large kitchen garden, whilst a stone terrace adjoins the house, providing access to the drawing room and kitchen.
