About this property

  • Ivy Cottage is a charming Grade II listed cottage in the heart of the village of Bodicote. The property has been a wonderful home to the same family since the late 1950's, and now offers scope for modernisation.

    Due to its architecture and age there are a number of features including an open fireplace and exposed timbers. All the reception rooms enjoy a southerly aspect on to the gardens and the layout is such that there is scope to create the more modern kitchen and breakfast room as well as a potential extension perhaps for a conservatory, subject to the relevant consents. The potential extends upstairs where the incoming purchaser can adapt or rearrange the accommodation to create further bath/shower rooms.

    One of the key attributes of this property is the walled south facing garden that is disproportionately large for a property of this nature. It is obvious that the garden is a passion of the current owner.

    In addition there is a single garage allowing for off road parking. When you step off the high street though the garden gate, you are walking into a charming oasis in this bustling village. Having that space and privacy is a premium.

An absolute gem, situated close to amenities, ripe for refurbishment and for someone to put their own stamp on.
