This appealing Grade II Listed cottage is in the pretty hamlet of Thrupp. It would be hard to beat this setting! The cottage is only separated from the canal by a country lane, which is a no-through road. The views to the front are completely unobstructed, framed by trees and a lovely rural vista on the opposite bank. Just around the corner is the an excellent local pub, the Boat Inn, and there is a further pub and a tearoom within easy walking distance.
The front door opens into a good sized sitting room with views over to the canal, lovely ceiling beams, and a characterful brick fireplace with a solid woodburner. The sitting room leads on into a dining room with a serving hatch to the kitchen. Beyond this is the kitchen with a back door into the garden. There is excellent scope for further extension into the garden, subject to planning.
Stairs rise from the dining room to the first floor, where there is a large master bedroom overlooking the canal, a smaller double bedroom overlooking the garden to the rear, and an upstairs bathroom to the rear. There is potential to convert the loft subject to planning.
Properties are never going to be cheap in this area so you can expect a bit of a compromise somewhere. This cottage does need a bit of doing up, but isn’t that the perfect opportunity to put your own stamp on it?
