A very rare opportunity for a truly special and one-of-a-kind substantial cottage in a phenomenal and highly sought after location. 'The Cottage' on Main Street is believed to date back to the 1600s, so having said this, you would be forgiven for assuming it may need a lot of restoration and maintenance, however not this time; it is beautifully presented throughout and in excellent condition, with a stunning blend of original features and high contemporary standards. Located in the desirable Barton-under-Needwood, there are attractive and picturesque walks in every direction, with the 'Excellent' rated John Taylor High School just half a mile away and the stunning Barton Marina within a mile-and-a-half, offering scenic waterfront views, restaurants and a cinema.
The property itself boasts very spacious accommodation throughout, with two separate and flexible reception rooms, a large, full length kitchen/diner, utility room and guest WC to the ground floor whilst to the first floor are four generous bedrooms and a good size, well presented family bathroom. The Cottage sits on an attractive and elevated frontage, with colourful shrubs and trees welcoming you in, whilst to the rear is a very large driveway behind secure vehicular gates with an extensive and beautiful garden beyond, consisting mainly of a well maintained lawn with more attractive shrubs and trees dotted throughout and to the perimeters. To the very rear is a further area made up of slab paving and soiled areas, offering the perfect opportunity for growing fruit and vegetables, with a high level brick wall to the furthest end with fields beyond.
