What makes a proper village? To be honest no one really knows but at the very least it needs a shop, a pub, a village hall, a school and somewhere for the kids to let off steam. Leeswood has all of these along with a couple of fast food outlets and some of the most attractive surroundings you could hope for which, to my mind, makes it almost over-qualified.
So following the village theme, the idea of a little cottage in such a setting becomes ever more appealing, but appealing means expensive and the problem is finding one with a price tag slightly less than the national debt of a small third world country. With this little gem, we may have found the answer…..
In front of the home there is a broad driveway laid to gravel providing off road parking and beside which a paved pathway leads up to the entrance porch mounted against the front elevation. This porch is the perfect spot for hanging wet coats and outdoor shoes, preventing too much of the outside coming inside. It also houses the easily accessible electric fuse board and associated meters.
Opening the inner door allows us into the open plan lounge area where this little cottage takes on an altogether different attitude. Instead of the slightly cramped front parlour I expected, I was confronted by a large space easily capable of accepting one of the huge corner settees that are so fashionable today without feeling remotely overpowered and, if this were possible, made to feel even bigger as your eye is drawn to the kitchen space at the rear.
The kitchen, where the flooring changes to a faux grey slate surface is separated from the lounge segment by a bank of fitted kitchen units running out from the side wall and forming a square enclosure from where the culinary magic is dispensed. I really must stop watching the Hairy Bikers… Copious amounts of storage is available all around the room with a space being held back for the ever necessary dishwasher while against the wall at the open end of this area sits the tall fridge freezer.
A door at the rear of the kitchen open into the small rear hallway, off which is the family bathroom.
This features a continuation of the flooring from the kitchen and is neatly tiled in white from floor to ceiling. The room contains the expected suite of a pedestal hand basin, lavatory and traditional bath while in the far corner is a glass-walled walk-in shower cubicle with a mains shower drawing its hot water directly from the recently serviced gas combi boiler.
Stepping through the back door we find ourselves in what I would hesitate to call a conservatory, though it does have a perspex roof. What it is however, is a useful utility space housing the washing machine and providing space for all the associated “stuff” that can be the downfall of many open plan designed homes, there never being anywhere suitable to keep it. With this; problem solved.
Outside here is an split level area of wooden decking which if I am honest, needs removing as it is probably beyond help without Nick Knowles and his merry band of volunteers.
From here we climb a short flight of steps to a second level of decking, sadly in similar condition and this is a real shame. A shame because it shows just how special this garden has been and could become again with a little work. From here the garden springs its final surprise as we leave the decked area, past the pretty and well used brick BBQ and walk on across the lawn. And we walk, and we walk and as we walk we finally realise just how long it is. It is quite a strange sensation to look back over your shoulder and see the house in the distance; something the landed gentry are familiar with but for us mere mortals… Yes, the area could benefit from a good deal of tidying up but it is an excellent starting point and the possibilities are endless.
Moving back indoors and climbing the stairs brings us face to face with the recurring problem in almost every three bedroom home; the smallest room.
Now, this is definitely a strict single room, perfectly adequate for a young child or as an occasional guest room but the lack of storage space hamstrings any pretensions it may have to be anything grander. Having said that, as working from home becomes ever more common it is ideally proportioned as an office and would prevent any work from cluttering up the lounge space downstairs.
Beside here and also overlooking the front, the second bedroom is an altogether larger proposition. This would make a perfectly comfortable double room offering as it does, space for a variety of free standing furniture along with a double bed.
Last but not least we come to the principal bedroom overlooking the garden. This is a well lit and spacious room, shown by the way it accommodates bedside cabinets either side of the double bed, along with a large free standing wardrobe and two chests of drawers. It is a welcoming and peaceful space well able to contain everything you need, which is all we can ask of a bedroom.
