A beautifully restored and stylishly extended 3/4 bedroomed Grade II listed detached thatched cottage of immense charm and character located in the heart of the highly desirable east Leicestershire village of Tugby.

Believed to date back to the late 17th Century retaining a wealth of period features, the surprisingly spacious and versatile interior with over 2,000 sq ft of accommodation is approached via an impressive reception hall with period fireplace and staircase off, living room with feature brick flooring, beamed ceiling and cast iron log burner, with a stripped pine door leading through to a farmhouse style kitchen with stone flagged flooring, beamed ceiling, bespoke built-in units and an Aga.

A pine door leads through to a spectacular family/dining room with tall double glazed windows enjoying views over the gardens, and there is a feature inglenook with cast iron log burner. A side lobby leads out to the garden. Also to the ground floor off the reception hall is an office/bedroom four with cast iron burner, and there is also a utility room with excellent storage cupboards and a fitted cloakroom/wc.

The upper floor is approached via two staircases, rising to an impressive landing/study area with a high vaulted ceiling having exposed beams and a cruck frame, together with wide floorboards and an excellent range of storage cupboards.

The principal bedroom has an impressive ceiling with exposed painted A-frame and bedroom two has a built-in double wardrobe. Located off the landing is a superbly appointed bathroom with a mains shower located over the bath. Bedroom three is also of double size with exposed painted beams. A door leads through to a mezzanine snug/study area off which is a fitted shower room/wc, and there is a secondary staircase giving access to the family/dining room.

Outside, this chocolate box cottage has an attractive front garden. To the side is a gravelled driveway providing off road parking for up to four cars, giving access to an oak framed detached double garage which has a useful mezzanine floor above. The rear garden is of excellent size and includes an extensive gravelled and paved area with steps rising to lawns with a former outbuilding having a tiered paved sun terrace and fruit trees.

The highly sought after east Leicestershire village of Tugby is located just off the A47 between Uppingham and Leicester, and has a public house/restaurant, village hall, reputable primary school and historic church. Day to day amenities are available in the nearby village of Billesdon which has a doctors surgery, store and post office, whilst more comprehensive shopping and supermarket facilities are available in the nearby towns of Market Harborough, Uppingham and Oakham and in the city of Leicester.
