This Grade II Listed stone cottage is set in a much envied cul-de-sac location in the hamlet of Thrupp. There are open views to the canal on the opposite side of the lane, and two pubs and a tea room nearby for those days when you or your guests don’t fancy eating at home. This is a popular spot to gongoozle and photograph, so we’ve included a shot of DS Lewis (played by Kevin Whately) ouside number 4 among the photos.
To the front of the house is a shallow area providing just enough space for a bench and a few tubs of flowers. The front door is sheltered by a pretty, traditional porch. The door opens straight into a charming sitting room with views from the front windows onto the canal, and a cosy gas fired stove standing in a lovely inset fireplace. The ground floor is entirely open plan, so the sitting room leads through to the dining room. This room has French doors opening out to the garden and a walk-in pantry. Leading on from the dining room is the kitchen, which has a window overlooking the garden and a back door.
Stairs rise from the sitting room to the first floor. Here there are three bedrooms, including a double and a single with views over the canal to the front, and another double with views over the garden to the rear. There is a good sized bathroom on this floor with a window overlooking the garden.
Immediately behind the house is a small paved terrace, ideal for sitting outside. The remainder of the garden is lawned, with mature raised borders, shrubs, small feature trees, and a shed. The garden is enclosed by stone walls on two sides, with fencing on the third.
This delightful and beautifully presented property has been used both as family home, and from time to time as a holiday let. The agent can provide details of the holiday letting potential if this is of interest.
