About this property

  • Originally thought to date from the 19th century and extended over the years, Swallow Cottage has been sensitively transformed by the current owners to provide well-presented accommodation. Set within the heart of the community with a sizeable garden the property is a rare find. Works carried out to the property in recent years include replacing the windows, boiler, kitchen and bathrooms.

    A porch leads into the dining room with exposed beams and feature fireplace. The light, dual aspect sitting room is at the rear of the property and looks on the garden, with a wood burning stove and exposed beams. The kitchen / breakfast room provides a flexible space with in-built wall and base units with Corian work tops, integrated appliances and stainless steel sink. The kitchen also benefits from under floor heating and a door into the garden. To the rear of the kitchen is a WC with sink unit and space for a washing machine.

    The first floor includes a spacious principal bedroom with wonderful countryside views over the garden, in-built wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There is a further double bedroom with in built storage, a single bedroom and a family bathroom. There is also a partly boarded attic space, accessed via a ladder.

    To the rear of the property is the added advantage of a separate home office.

    To the side of the property is off street parking leading through double gates into the garden. A paved and gravel terrace leads up grand stone steps to a large area of lawn and landscaped flowerbeds. A path leads through the garden to a seating area underneath a pergola and onto the former vegetable garden. There is a large shed towards the rear of the garden and two further sheds.

Sulgrave has a wonderful community spirit and this charming cottage really appeals to me. The garden is a real draw.
