Property Description

Presenting an exceedingly appealing and seldom Grade II Listed former Althorp Estate cottage, originally designed by Edward Blore in 1851, situated in the esteemed locale of Lower Harlestone, boasting picturesque views to the rear. Meticulously maintained by the current proprietors, enhancements have been made to key areas such as the kitchen and bathroom, ensuring the property remains in impeccable condition. Much of its original charm is preserved, featuring diamond-leaded windows, open fires, and pine-latched doors, all complemented by gas radiator central heating. The accommodation, succinctly outlined, comprises an entrance porch, kitchen/breakfast room, lounge, two bedrooms, and a bathroom on the first floor, with an additional bedroom on the second floor. The exquisitely landscaped gardens primarily extend to the front, supplemented by a courtyard, a selection of outbuildings, and designated parking for two vehicles at the rear.
