An immaculately presented attached period cottage set in beautiful gardens on the edge of North Newton. No onward chain.

Japonica Cottage is an attached period cottage which we believe dates back to 1860. In 1995 the current owners added a double storey extension and the property now provides beautifully presented, spacious and flexible accommodation over 2 floors. Along with modern comforts such as a newly fitted Wren kitchen at the end of 2018 and upgraded bathrooms, the property still retains so much charm and character throughout. Set within fantastic gardens on the edge of North Newton, the property is now available with no onward chain.

The property is accessed via a five bar gate onto the driveway which provides parking and leads to the single garage. The attractive front garden has an ornamental fruit and veg raised bed, surrounded by a slate pathway and bordered with planting of Japonica (quince), red flowering Broom, Fig and a wall climbing Clematis among others, nicely screening the property from the village road. A double glazed hardwood door opens into the reception hall with tiled floor and doors leading into the study and sitting room. The study further gives internal access into the garage (16'2 x 9'4). The sitting room is a well-proportioned room with open fireplace. Leading on into the dining room, again with a fireplace currently with a gas fire, staircase rises up to the first floor, French doors open into the rear lobby/boot room and access into the rear hall. At the rear of the property is the beautiful kitchen/breakfast room which has been refitted in October 2018 and comprises; an extensive range of high gloss self closing, wall base and drawer units along with Indesit appliances to include; 2 x ovens, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and hob. French doors open out to the rear garden. The ground floor is completed with a useful utility/shower room. On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms the master having a walk-in wardrobe and bedroom 2 has a range of fitted wardrobes. Also on the first floor is a family bathroom with roll top freestanding bath, along with a separate WC.

Outside the gardens to the rear are a particular feature of the property with 4 raised vegetable beds with interconnecting lawn pathways seeded with wild flowers. There is a Hexagonal greenhouse backed by Jasmine and Honeysuckle, a courtyard area with 2 types of edible grape vine overhead along with a raised Herb garden and traditional BBQ fire and along the red sandstone wall is a climbing Hydrangea, Camellia, pear tree and winter flowering Honeysuckle. Over a wooden pergola is wisteria, honeysuckle and passion flower with a final pair of wisteria growing against the south facing rear wall. These together with established shrubs and planted bulbs that surround the rear of the property, create a gardening haven for flower, fruit and vegetable.

An early viewing is essential to fully appreciate the charm and space in this lovely village home.

Japonica Cottage is situated on the edge of this much sought after village.
