THE PROPERTY Avonlea is an attractive period stone cottage in the heart of this picturesque Warwickshire village. The characterful property has been extensively extended and modernised by the current owners over the last five years to provide a flexible family home. Retaining many of the original features dating back to the 1800's the programme of refurbishment has been sympathetically conducted and the property now comprises a sitting room with feature fireplace, dining room, snug and a large open plan breakfast kitchen with bi-fold doors onto the terrace and garden. There is a downstairs bedroom with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, utility room and ground floor shower room. Given the extent of the ground floor accommodation a self contained annexe could very easily be created. On the first floor are three bedrooms and a refitted bathroom suite. Further benefits include double glazing and gas central heating. Outside is a driveway that provides hardstanding and leads to a detached garage. The fore garden is terraced and comprises rookeries with mature shrubs and plants. The rear south facing garden enjoys a terrace directly off the property with easy tread steps up to the formal lawn with a stepping stone pathway. There is a summer house with additional storage and a chicken run. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate all this property has to offer.
