About this property

  • An early 19th century quintessential cottage in the heart of an idyllic Leicestershire Village with a south facing rear garden and unique roof terrace set within a conservation area.

    A Grade II listed period façade adorns the front elevation toward the main street of Cossington village. Aside the property is the driveway leading to the electrically operated oversized double garaging with additional parking and access into the attractive walled garden.

    Side entrance opens into a spacious entrance hall with study area. Several windows flood this room with natural light and door opens into WC/cloaks with art deco styled flooring and under stair storage. Glass door leads to a private walled courtyard with partially decking seated area. Gated entrance provides access to the main street.

    The sitting room benefits from plenty of natural light with a warm and comforting feel. Open cast gas fireplace with decorative surround and black hearth. French doors open out to a beautifully arranged enclosed walled garden.

    The original entrance to Christmas Cottage is steeped in 19th Century architecture. The stunning arched windows peek into the spacious dining room and this room benefits from dual aspect to both front and rear. Open fireplace with ornate white stone carved surround, with an option to return back to an open fire. Beautifully designed and hand built individual kitchen comprising integrated SMEG oven and hob. Further integrated dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge freezer and microwave. Junckers wood surfaces and granite table. Original period window with plantation shutters.

    A turned staircase ascends to a galleried landing on the first floor. Leading on to two generous double bedrooms, a uniquely designed bathroom and door opening out to the raised roof terrace.
    The principal bedroom is beautifully arranged, ornate cast fireplace and frontal aspect through the period windows. Bedroom two is of a similar proportion and also has a front aspect.

    The family bathroom / wet room has Egyptian tiled flooring on which stands a cast ball and claw rolled bath, WC and bidet. Walk-in fully tiled drench shower, mounted hand wash basin and heated towel rail complete this bathroom suite. Inset spots with mood lighting.

    Christmas Cottage is positioned in a central village location. Driveway leading to the electrically operated oversize double garaging with power points and water tap, up and over door and further parking. The south west facing roof terrace is fully decked with wrought iron railings and overlooks the rear walled garden which is creatively landscaped with lawn and decked areas dressed with a variety of potted plants and shrubs.

The roof terrace is such a wonderful addition to this home, I would spend all of my time there.
