About this property

  • The Property
    North Cottage is a pretty semi-detached stone-built cottage tucked away on the central road through the village of Lyddington. The property dates back to circa 1680 and has plenty of character, including fabulous exposed beams and brick fireplaces which are beautifully complemented by the modern, country inspired décor and the wood-framed extension to the rear. The house is very well appointed to a high standard inside and out.

    The cottage has been sympathetically updated in recent years, with the extension to the rear completed in 2011 offering a striking formal dining area that's flooded with natural light thanks to the high vaulted ceiling and abundance of glazing. There is also space for a table in the modern kitchen, which has an Everhot range cooker (not included in the sale), a wood-burning stove and a variety of integrated appliances. Completing the ground floor is the relaxing sitting room, with its cosy open fire, and the useful cloakroom with W.C. Upstairs the bedrooms are arranged together around a central landing that's lit from above by skylights. All three bedrooms are doubles and share a family bathroom.

    A gravel driveway provides off-street parking, while to the rear there is a wonderfully secluded garden well enclosed by trees and shrubs and with colourful attractive borders. The garden features a paved terrace, a vegetable garden and good-size lawn. There is also a detached outbuilding with plumbing and electric separated into a utility room and store.

This is a wonderful example of a cosy country cottage, packed with period features. Accessible to London Kings Cross in just over an hour, from Market Harborough, and just a stones throw from a choice of two good pubs and a choice of country walks from the door!
