NO CHAIN! NO STAMP DUTY! Stunning 4 bedroom period cottage with huge development potential in beautiful South Leicestershire village


Browns Cottage is a four bedroomed detached period cottage with a wealth of original features including beamed ceilings, log-burners and pine ledge and brace doors.

Nestling in large mature gardens extending to about 1/3 of an acre, the property is approached via a substantial driveway leading to the attached garage, with ample car parking.

Planning permission for a detached double garage was granted and has recently lapsed but this could easily be renewed to free up the existing attached garage for conversion to additional 2 storey living accommodation. The original plans will be provided in addition to architect sketches for a further potential extension.


This is a unique opportunity to purchase a period property, rarely available with such extensive scope, in a highly sought after village location.
