A Rare Opportunity to Acquire a Gorgeous 16th Century Chocolate Box Cottage situated just on the outskirts of Royal Leamington Spa,
This picturesque cottage, originally two former artisan cottages, just oozes charm, with its characterful and cosy interiors, ceiling beams, wonderful Inglenook Fireplace and ‘Olde-Worlde’ character with higgled piggledy walls and ceilings, many original features have been retained, whilst having been brought up to date to fit 21st Century living.
The cottages were originally constructed to provide living accommodation for workers at the nearby Blackdown Mill. Which is just around the corner on Hill Wootten Road, with lovely country walks in close proximity, directly accessible on foot. Although the property is located on the busy Kenilworth Road, once you step into the gorgeous gardens you are in another world. So close to Leamington Spa, this really is a fabulous alternative to a town centre property - offering the best of both worlds.
Being two cottages combined the interior is surprisingly spacious. The main front door leads directly into the dining area, although the current owner uses the back door, passing through the gorgeous cottage gardens wrapping around the property to the front, side and rear and into the bright, cottage kitchen with pretty window onto the back patio gardens with an abundance of pretty shrubs and pots. This leads into the characterful and spacious dining area overlooked by the wonderful Inglenook Fireplace with a small step to the comfortable, cosy sitting room.
Upstairs there are three lovely bedrooms, two good sized doubles with a further smaller double, as well as a family bathroom, and above there is a very large loft area, partially boarded and accessed via a fold down ladder.
The gardens are absolutely gorgeous, extending out to one side with lawns and a variety of established trees and bushes with cottage garden terraces to the front and back, offering sun and shade all day long, as well as two small pretty ponds plus a super timber-framed pergola, that with a little tlc could be a little corner of Tuscany!
This pretty country cottage, so close to the wonderful towns of Leamington Spa, Warwick and Kenilworth is a rare find, and an absolute dream location at this price!

Family Bathroom. Wood-panelled bath and sink unit with large built-in cupboard under, with WC, Bidet and window to the rear with the lovely countryside views to rear aspect.
Gardens - The gardens run to three sides of the property and are absolutely gorgeous. There is a part paved terrace to the rear with a pretty sun-drenched seating area and views towards neighbouring gardens and countryside towards Hill Wootten. Fabulous garden extending to side laid to lawn and planted with mature trees and shrubs, including a magnificent magnolia tree. A fabulous timber pergola with mature productive vine, that with a little tlc could be a lovely spot for Al Fresco dining. There are two ponds, one to the front and one to the back terrace, with gorgeous cottage garden flowers, plants and shrubs.
There is plenty of scope for working from home, with plenty of room and potential in the gardens to install a wooden home office if required, as an alternative to providing a desk space inside, perhaps in the third bedroom. The cottage is connected to a high-speed broadband service currently provided through Sky.
All of the timber windows to the rear of the property were replaced in August 2020, and so are less than a year old, and all double glazed. They are beautiful bespoke frames provided through a respected local company.
