Triad Cottage is situated in Stoke Albany, a thriving Welland Valley village just five miles from the medieval town of Market Harborough & eleven miles from the pretty market town of Uppingham. There is a good sense of community within the village which benefits from a church, village hall, public house and children’s play park.
There is a wide selection of state and independent schooling in the area including local village primary schools at Bringhurst, Wilbarston and Hallaton, with the well-regarded UCC (Uppingham Community College) for secondary education. Additional secondary schooling is available locally at Market Harborough, whilst notable private secondary schooling options are available at Leicester Grammar School, Uppingham, Oakham, Stamford and Oundle Schools.
Market Harborough train station, 5 miles, offers access to London St Pancras from 55 minutes, and Corby train station is only 6 miles, making the area an excellent location for those wishing to travel regularly to London for leisure or work purposes. Leicester and Peterborough are easily accessible via the A47, and the A1, M1 and the M6 provide access to London and Birmingham.
Surrounded by roses, steps lead to the front door of the cottage and open into a good sized ENTRANCE HALL with hardwood flooring, that gives way to the charming SITTING ROOM that is flooded with natural light with windows and doors to three aspects, giving wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and access to the garden. A wood burning stove sits upon a slate hearth with stone detailing above. The SNUG/STUDY with tiled floor also has glazed doors to the gardens, whilst the farmhouse style DINING KITCHEN has a range of Shaker style painted units set under work surfaces, with a 1.5 bowl ceramic sink and drainer, double oven, 4 ring gas hob set under an arch with brick detailing, space and plumbing for washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer. The ground floor is completed with a GUEST CLOAKROOM with w.c, a BOOT ROOM & adjacent BOILER/STORAGE ROOM.
To the first floor the open landing gives way to three DOUBLE BEDROOMS, all with lovely views of the gardens, quiet lane or countryside beyond. The recently refitted BATHROOM has a bath and separate large shower, whilst the Master bedroom has a ENSUITE SHOWER ROOM and two windows providing natural light and stunning views over open countryside.
The gardens are particularly charming, being completely private, south facing, and very well stocked. Surrounded by enclosing stone walling, attractive paved, cobbled and lawned areas are edged by well planted stone beds full of a mixture of typically English cottage plants, whilst roses and honeysuckle ramble up the stone walls and the front of the property - idyllic!
To the side of the property is a block paved driveway with parking for two cars & giving access to a detached garage with workshop/storage space.
All main services are connected.
