*Offers Invited** Originally dating back to around 1830 is this charming four bedroom detached cottage in the heart of Guilsborough village. Immaculately kept by the current owners, Glebe Cottage has undergone respectful modernisation in their time, to include a bespoke fitted kitchen, the addition of an en-suite to the master bedroom, and care and restoration of the original features. The full accommodation comprises entrance hall with inner porch, cloakroom/WC with skylight, sitting room with cast iron fuel burner and exposed wood floor, second reception room, currently used as a formal dining room with feature fireplace and bay window with window seat, bespoke handmade kitchen/breakfast room with granite work surfaces and racing green oil fired Rayburn range cooker, and adjoining utility with cabinetry which matches the kitchen. The inner hallway which leads to the stairs is also used as a study. To the first floor are three double bedrooms, all with southerly facing windows overlooking the picturesque village, and feature fireplace. Bedroom one features a refitted en-suite shower room and all of the bedrooms retain original character features, such as beams, panelled doors and storage cupboards. There is also a family bathroom and separate WC. To the second floor is a fourth double bedroom with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, an opening leads to a versatile space currently used as a home office. Outside, there is a courtyard to the rear with gated pedestrian access. A brick built outhouse creates ideal storage space with a wood store and coal bunker. The area has scope to create a wonderful al-fresco dining spot. To the front is the main garden, with a mature lawn, lined with lavender, is southerly facing and enjoys an excellent degree of privacy, and is well used by the current owners. EPC: G
