You won't believe the size of the home hiding behind the modest front door of this fabulous property! Part of Burbage history for around 200 years, the recent renovation of this period cottage has given it a new lease of life for owners to enjoy for many more years. Set in the heart of Burbage Old Village, just yards from the Manor House and church, is this wonderful cottage of immense character with outbuildings and an extensive rear garden.

Built circa 1835, we enter the cottage into a front lounge typical of this age with a newly installed log burner adding to the character already present with the exposed brickwork and beams. A staircase leads to the first floor and a fully glazed internal door leads us into the sizeable breakfast kitchen to the rear, a country kitchen with exposed brickwork, wooden worktops, a Belfast sink and a walk in pantry. In addition to the excellent range of units and central breakfast bar island, there's an integral double oven, induction hob with extractor, plumbing for a dishwasher and space for a large American fridge freezer. Another fully glazed door leads through to the dining room, an ingenious extension closing off the courtyard that originally linked the original property with the outbuildings to the rear to create an internal room forming part of the house. This room has underfloor heating in addition to the centrally heated radiator and bi fold doors opening up onto the rear garden plus a further door into the first half of the outbuildings, here we find a fabulous ground floor wet room with WC and also a utility room (with a little finishing required).

The second half of the outbuildings is accessed externally from the rear garden, formerly a stables and currently a store room, this room was destined to become an external family room and central heating pipework and electric cabling has been brought through in preparation. Also in the rear garden are 2 more modern outbuildings, the main one installed in 2020 with 2 identically sized rooms having thermostatically controlled electric radiators and a broadband point, making them ideal for a home office, hobby room or even potential business use, with side access to the front of the property negating the need to come through the house. The other is a summer house adjacent to the raised sun deck and hot tub platform in the centre of the enormous South East facing rear garden. Originally tended by the famous horticulturist and international rose breeder, Herbert Robinson, this stunning garden has 57 varieties of rose coming alive in the Spring and Summer months as well as a large expanse of lawn in a surprisingly extensive garden plot that stretches behind a number of the neighbouring properties. 

To the first floor of this property there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. Bedroom 1 to the rear is a double bedroom with a walk in wardrobe, bedroom 2 is another double bedroom to the front of the property alongside bedroom 3, a single bedroom. The bathroom to the rear has both a bath and shower over.

Location: Ideally situated in the heart of Old Burbage village, close to the church and within a short walk of Windsor Street, home to several excellent Pubs and Restaurants as well as a great Chip Shop! Burbage holds a Farmers Market on the first Saturday of every month and many annual events, including a Carnival and a Bonfire & Fireworks display. Burbage is effectively a suburb of the larger urban area of Hinckley which offers a regular market, a vast array of shops and restaurants and the exciting £80 million cinema and retail complex, The Crescent. The current regeneration of Hinckley Town Centre also includes a new Leisure Centre which opened in Spring 2016. Hinckley railway station, with its links to Leicester, Birmingham and beyond, is less than 2 miles away. Hinckley also boasts an excellent Golf Club and Marina, with a canalside bar and restaurant and ducks a plenty.

Schools: The highly acclaimed Burbage Church of England Infant School on Grove Road is just a 6-minute walk away, as is the Burbage County Junior School, with Sketchley Hill Primary a 20-minute walk. For secondary school pupils, the highly rated Hastings High School is a 15-minute walk and The Hinckley School (formerly Hinckley Academy & John Cleveland Sixth Form Centre) is less than 2 miles away.

There are a number of green open spaces in Burbage; The Horsepool, Britannia Playing Fields, Hinckley Road Recreation Ground and open countryside are all just a short stroll away whilst Sketchley Hill Farm Recreation Ground and Brookside Recreation Ground are within a 20 minute walk and less than 3 miles away you will find Burbage Common and Woods - 200 acres of semi-natural woodland and unspoilt grassland.
