There is more to Pound House Cottage in Lapworth Street, Lapworth, than there once was.

It was originally presented as two individual cottages,

However, the present owners have seamlessly linked them together to create one large house , though it has still retained its cottage name.

Inside there is a crisp look to the interior but it combines well with the oak beams that run across the ceiling and the leaded light handmade windows.

It also has everything a modern family might demand, including CAT6 cabling, multi-room audio, 4x4 matrix audio visual distribution throughout and underfloor heating.

Before entering, it is worth pausing to admire the prettily patterned herringbone brickwork above the double front doors.

An open reception hall has stone flooring and an oak-panelled staircase. A log burner in a fireplace with bressumer beam guarantees a warm welcome.

An impressive custom-made Mark Wilkinson kitchen has an extensive range of units complemented by Corian worktops. High end integrated appliances include a Falcon oven, Miele fridge and freezers, Miele dishwasher, microwave, Viking wine chiller and a fully fitted larder cupboard.

Heating beneath the limestone flooring in the kitchen makes it the perfect space for informal dining or entertaining, while another wood burner in the family area makes it a cosy space to relax in.

A set of French doors lead out onto the courtyard garden, with a patio area ideal for having breakfast or morning tea. It is framed within the feature brick walling.

The Mark Wilkinson laundry room provides storage as well as a useful cloakroom and boot area for taking off mud-covered shoes .

There are two well-proportioned reception rooms, both with oak flooring.

The drawing room has an elegant Wessex stone fireplace surround.

A second reception room could be a wonderful formal dining room but is currently being used as a playroom.

On the first floor, the landing leads off to four double bedrooms all of them with fitted wardrobes.

The principle bedroom has a fabulous vaulted ceiling. It has a separate dressing area and a Laufen en suite.

In the extravagant family bathroom there is brushed marble flooring and an impressive free-standing leather roll top bath. An additional shower room has a double width carved stone shower.

Situated to the side of the house is a block paved driveway that leads to a detached three-car garage,

Planning permission has been granted for the conversion of the space above so it could be used for living space, as a studio or perhaps a home office.

The half acre of garden is south-westerly facing. Most of it is to the front and is laid to lawn with extensively stocked floral and herbaceous beds and a well-established hedgerow border.
