Dating back to circa 1641, this "Crook beam" cottage exudes an undeniable charm that has withstood the test of time. Tastefully decorated and updated by the owners, the interior seamlessly blends original features with contemporary comforts, creating an inviting and captivating ambience. Its like something out of ' The White Company' catalogue.

From the moment you step inside, you'll be greeted by a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The dining room, with its limestone tiled floor and exposed beams, sets the tone for a truly immersive experience. Adjacent, the fitted kitchen by renowned firm Holmetree boasts quartz worktops, a Rangemaster oven, Quooker tap and an elegant designer radiator, ensuring both style and functionality.

Upstairs, three bedrooms await, each offering a serene sanctuary. The master bedroom boasts an en-suite shower room, while the remaining bedrooms are complemented by a stylish three-piece bathroom, complete with a freestanding bathtub think boutique hotel vibes fixtures are by Lusso Stone and gorgeous tiling by Mandarin stone. Bedroom two is currently used as a dressing room with built in full height wardrobes, while bedroom 3 is a gorgeous single bedroom overlooking the rear garden. It might be small but its perfectly formed.

Outdoor living is equally appealing, with a south-easterly facing low-maintenance rear garden featuring a paved patio and a charming brick outbuilding, ideal for storage or as currently used as a utility.

A little bit of history about Crook beam cottages were a distinctive style of 17th century vernacular architecture found primarily in rural England. Dating back to around 1641, these modest dwellings featured a signature crooked or bent timber beam supporting the thatched roof. This crook beam design helped create more interior headroom in an otherwise tiny single-room cottage. Built by peasants using local materials like wattle and daub, crook beam cottages were the humble abodes of the poorest members of agricultural communities during that period. Despite their small size and simple construction, these historic cottages have become iconic examples of traditional English building techniques and a window into the living conditions of the working class in the 1600s. We believe this property to be only one of two properties in Leicestershire its truly unique.

Ravenstone itself is a highly sought-after village, just three miles from the bustling market town of Ashby-de-la-Zouch. With excellent transport links, including easy access to the A42/M42 motorway network, and proximity to reputable schools, this location offers the perfect blend of rural tranquility and urban convenience.

Do not miss this rare opportunity to acquire a piece of history and make this exquisite character cottage your own. I anticipate a flurry of interest, so act swiftly to secure a viewing and experience the timeless allure of this exceptional property firsthand.
