Delightful and attractive four bedroom detached cottage situated adjacent to St Edwards church, close to the heart of Castle Donington. The property retains much character and in part is believed to date to the 17th century, with subsequent sympathetic extensions, creating a well proportioned family home.
We have really enjoyed living here and especially being so close to the charming village, from finding an old picture of the house and church in a village antique shop, to country walks and brunches at The Apiary before returning to our beautiful garden where there is always sun throughout the day or to light a fire on Autumn evenings. Castle Donington has been a wonderful home.
THE PROPERTY AND VILLAGE
The subject property is a delightful period cottage offering a wealth of character, being situated adjacent to the striking 13th century parish church of St Edwards. It is believed that part of the property dates to the 17th century, subsequently having been sympathetically extended over the preceding years to provide a well proportioned family home. There is some speculation that the property was the first in Castle Donington to have an indoor bathroom, additionally the vertical beam in the living/dining room is taken from the original bell tower frame of the church. Clapgun Street is ideally placed for the centre of Castle Donington and the extensive range of amenities.
Castle Donington itself is a vibrant location with a high standard of amenities including shops, post office, doctors surgery, pharmacy, super market, pubs and restaurants. For the commuter East Midlands airport, Parkway railways station and the national motorway network are all readily accessible as are the centres of Nottingham, Derby and Leicester via the 24 hour running Skylink bus service.
