Leamington Cottage dates back to the mid 17th Century with later additions creating spacious family living accommodation with generously sized reception rooms. The property retains much of its period charm including overhead beams, wooden floorboards and inglenook fireplaces, and benefits from stunning south facing views over the gardens and paddocks and private farm land beyond which can be appreciated from almost every room.
Stone steps lead up to the kitchen which has a tiled floor, Rayburn and electric fan oven. There are a number of pine wall and base units, with space for dishwasher and fridge freezer. The kitchen's spacious dining area benefits from the wonderful countryside views. Steps down lead to the versatile utility/tack room which has a sink with base units, space for washing machine and tumble dryer and room for extra appliances.
The sitting room has window seats either side of the front door with views to the front of the house. This room is a generous open plan room with stone inglenook fireplace with Morso wood/multifuel stove, as the main focal point. This room could also be
used as a formal dining room and for larger parties / entertaining.
The drawing room has a stone/brick inglenook fireplace with Morso wood/ multifuel stove and french doors onto the garden. A wooden latch key door leads through to the study which has windows to three aspects and a external door with access
onto the drive. From the sitting room there are stairs up to the first floor landing which has overhead beams and windows with views overlooking the front of the property into the village.
The landing leads to the master bedroom, with fitted wardrobes, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The family bathroom consists of bath with shower screen, pedestal wash basin, WC, heated towel rail and airing cupboard.
Stairs up to the second floor lead to a bathroom with Velux window, bath, wash basin, WC and heated towel rail. There are
