Dating back to the 17th century this stunning Grade ll listed cottage enjoys both modern living and style whilst retaining many of its original features throughout. Leslie Cottage once belonged to the Leslie family. Elizabeth Leslie was daughter of the Earl of Rothe and wife of Captain Augustus Wathen who fought at Waterloo. The property is one of three adjoining houses that was lived in by the family over many years.
Entered via the main front door the spacious entrance hall gives access to all principle reception rooms. The formal dining room enjoys double aspect views and includes exposed beams, fireplace and refurbished hard wood flooring. The sitting room is a real feature of the home with many original features including the focal point, a beautiful fireplace with log burner. To the rear of the property the kitchen with views to the courtyard has been upgraded in recent years to provide ample base units with matching eye level cupboards including space for the usual white good appliances. There is also a downstairs W.C.
The first floor accommodation includes a wonderful galleried landing with vaulted ceiling and window making the most of its views. Both double bedrooms include double aspect views and vaulted ceilings to make bright and spacious rooms. The master bedroom includes built in wardrobes. The family bathroom has been modernised in recent years with a stylish bathroom suite including a bath with shower over, vanity unit and heated towel rail.
Externally to the front the double fronted home is complemented by a pretty walled garden with gate and path leading to the front door. To the rear and accessed via the kitchen is a beautiful walled courtyard, presented superbly this area is east facing and is a perfect place to entertain with ample space for outside dining. There is also a very useful store room that gives access to Archway Place. Located in a prime residential location on the edge of the town centre a further benefit is the single garage with electric door (15.6” x 7.9”).
