Charming detached character cottage in a sought after village.
Rose Cottage is an attractive, detached, stone built cottage in a Conservation Area. Situated on a no through road in the beautiful village of Blakesley.
The property is approached over a gravelled parking area surrounded by raised flower beds and shrubs, and is set back from the road in a quiet and secluded location.
A path laid with flagstones and flower bed borders leads to the front door. On entering, there is a hallway leading into a country-style kitchen/breakfast room with a series of base units with wooden work surfaces, wood parquet flooring and exposed beams. There is a two oven oil-fired Aga, Belfast sink, space for an under-counter fridge, and room for a table and chairs.
A useful utility room provides space for additional white goods including large fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. It also offers further base units and work surface as well as airing and storage cupboards. There is a door out to the front of the property, making this a practical room for leaving muddy boots and coats.
A light and airy family room provides a great additional reception room, with a stained glass window, exposed brick wall and French doors leading out to the patio and garden, and with views of the countryside behind.
On the other side of the entrance hall is a delightful sitting room with exposed beams and brickwork, recessed shelving, an attractive stained glass window and wooden flooring that steps down into the well-proportioned and light dining room with dual aspect. An impressive double sided open fireplace is a key feature of both the dining room and sitting room.
On the first floor is the master bedroom with a good size en suite bathroom and a bank of fitted wardrobes providing ample storage space. The master bedroom benefits from views across the garden and countryside. There are three further double bedrooms, all with character features including window seats, vaulted ceilings and exposed beams. There is also a family bathroom.
To the front of the property there are raised flower beds, shrubs and trees. There is also off road parking for four vehicles and a single garage.
The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a shrub border on one side and a selection of mature trees. There is also a garden shed. Adjacent to the French doors which lead into the family room, there is a patio with space for table and chairs. The patio is surrounded by flower borders with steps up to the lawn and views over open countryside.
