Property SummaryA delightful 17th century cottage with period features positioned on Main Street in the quaint South Leicestershire village of Cosby offering spacious living accommodation over three storeys and a stylish bathroom. Off road parking is provided to the rear.
This delightful home dates back to the 1600s in part with further accommodation added in the 1900s, blending seamlessly together. Characterful open fireplaces, carefully maintained each year, embellish the front reception room and master bedroom. The living accommodation comes in the form of a front reception room, accessed directly through the entrance door, and a dining room to the rear, with picture rail and ornate cast iron fireplace, leading openly into the kitchen. The kitchen is modern in design and much wider than the average cottage galley kitchen. A range of off white base units and striking red high gloss wall units are met with a black angular worksurface and red metrobrick upstands. The worksurfaces incorporate an electric hob and oven while an additional matching unit, providing further storage, encompasses a breakfast bar and sink with drainer unit. The modern units are perfectly contrasted by an exposed brickwork fireplace to the rear while a door to the side leads into the yard.
The bedrooms are arranged over the two upper floors. The master bedroom is located on the first floor and positioned to the front. The family bathroom is accessed through the second bedroom to the rear of the middle floor. The large bathroom with vaulted ceiling has been tastefully designed to offer a panelled bath sitting centrally with a shower over and black high gloss metrobrick tiling, timeless styled wash hand basin, and WC. The third bedroom occupies the entirety of the second floor and was created through the well-designed loft conversion with its abundance of eaves storage.
The front of the property sits behind a low level dry stone styled wall with a pathway leading to the entrance door with timber canopy over.
To the rear, a raised yard offers the ideal low maintenance space to relax and entertain. New fencing is due to be installed in December. Off road parking for a vehicle is also provided.
The village of Cosby is a vibrant, well stocked community in south west Leicestershire. The babbling brook running through the centre of the village lends a picturesque and quintessentially British charm, as well as being the venue of the famous annual duck race. Close to Leicester city centre and Fosse Park Shopping, yet with its own array of amenities and independent shops, cafes and restaurants, this village offers the ideal fusion of convenient and rural life. There is a primary school and independent day school in the village, and plenty of sporting clubs and facilities including Cosby Golf Course, Saffron Dynamo FC and Cosby United FC. For the commuter there is access to rail at nearby Narborough and also Rugby as well as access to major road networks, M1, M69 and M6.
