Property Summary

Edward Knight Estate Agents are delighted to be the chosen agents to market this truly unique opportunity to purchase this icon of Kingsthorpe Village. This Grade II listed stone cottage occupies a corner position and has a total plot size of approximately 0.25 of an acre, originally belonged within the grounds of The Cooke Manor House and served as a 19th Century barn, Dovecote and Orchard. The property was converted for residential living in the early 20th Century and now comprises; entrance hall, lounge, dining room, kitchen, utility room, WC and large Workshop to the ground floor. To the first floor are three bedrooms, family bathroom and a separate shower room. Externally the large rear and side gardens contain the detached 16th Century Dovecote Barn, a 19th Century Well, two car ports and a picturesque garden. To the side of the plot are timber gates accessed via the Mill Lane and Kingswell Road junction which lead to the two car ports. The property is in need of some modernisation and offers excellent scope for internal development. A large workshop accessed on the ground floor offers excellent space for improvement and may offer the ability to add additional first floor accommodation due to the full ceiling height. Further to this the Dovecote Barn may well suit being converted into a two storey annexe facility which would offer over 400 square feet of accommodation. We highly recommend an internal viewing of the property and plot to fully appreciate Home Farm.
