The cottage stands at the centre of the popular village of Twyford, with a stunning outlook of the neighbouring Grade 1 Listed Church of St Andrew. Twyford is on the B6047 just seven miles from the thriving market town of Melton Mowbray. Market Harborough, Oakham and Leicester are also easily reached. Twyford is surrounded by some beautiful countryside which is easily accessed along an extensive network of local footpaths and bridleways. There is a popular local pub in the village, The Saddle.
The cottage is an attractive three storey, white rendered character property with some brick construction under a tiled roof. The property has flexible accommodation and two front doors that would suit someone looking for an adjoining annex or home business.
Having recently undergone a refurbishment of two bathrooms it really is the move in home.
At the heart of the home is a wonderful live-in family kitchen which has space for cooking, dining and relaxing. There is a separate snug and conservatory, offering many different areas for entertaining or simply to relax.
The property has two entrance halls, a WC and utility room.
On the first floor is the master bedroom with newly fitted ensuite, 2 further double bedrooms and the newly fitted family bathroom. On the second floor are two further doubles and a shared shower room and WC.
The house is approached by a private gravelled driveway with parking for two/three cars.
Entrance to the home is via a wood and brick porch that protects you from the elements. The front door opens into the hallway, which has a solid French oak floor and access into the live-in kitchen and snug.
The live-in family kitchen is a real focal point. With its selection of units, pantry, Aga and space for both dining and relaxing it forms the heart of the home. There is solid French oak flooring throughout and a working period fireplace, making the relaxing area very cosy.
Past the dining area you enter the sunroom/conservatory with its Yorkshire flagstone floor and access to the well-equipped utility room and beautiful garden.
To the left of the hallway is the snug, a good-sized room for relaxing and access to the alternative entrance hall, which is also a good-sized room at 12’2” x 6’1”. This leads into a smaller room with a WC and rear access to the garden. Due to its ability to sperate itself from the rest of the home the current owners have been using these three rooms to run their business. As such, with its own access, it would continue to provide such a solution for the future owner. An alternative suggestion (and subject to some minor alterations) would be to make it into a conjoined annex for those additional family members that may need to come to stay.
A wide staircase leads to the first-floor landing. To the left is the master bedroom, with walk in wardrobe and well-appointed, newly fitted ensuite shower room.
Located behind is the newly fitted family bathroom with underfloor heating, bath with shower above and extra-large basin unit.
To the right are bedrooms two and three, two good sized doubles, one with fitted wardrobes and the other with fitted cupboards and desk.
A further staircase takes us to the second floor with two further good-sized double bedrooms and a shared shower room and WC.
The sunny East facing garden is a true representation of an English country garden with its roses, trees and bushes and is beautifully maintained. It is mainly laid to lawn, with a patio and some gravelled areas. There is also a very useful stone built shed.
