Property Description

Charming Four-Bedroom Character Property in Sought-After Crick Village.
Discover the allure of village living with this beautiful Grade II listed property. Believed to be built in the early 1700s, Cowper Cottage boasts coursed ironstone and limestone walls, a slate roof, and a wealth of character features including the coped gable end walls, windows, lintels, beams and purlins. As well as the flag stone flooring downstairs.
Spread across three storeys with four bedrooms, a lounge, separate reception room, kitchen diner, four piece family bathroom, utility room and downstairs WC, the property offers approximately 1500 sq.ft of accommodation.
You can explore the whole house through the walk-through video tour available on this page.
The ground floor welcomes you with a spacious lounge featuring a lovely fireplace with a built-in log burner and double doors leading to the huge, private rear garden. For such a large space, it is a really cosy room which, with the log burner, is nice and toasty in the winter but as with most stone built properties, very cool in the warmer months.
Another sizeable reception room showcases characterful quarry tile floors. This could be a study, additional lounge, hobby room – the choice is yours!
The modern and stylish kitchen/diner is a great size boasting an induction Rangemaster cooker and a built-in dishwasher with plenty of space for a large dining room table. The utility room is handily positioned adjacent to the kitchen offering further space along with the downstairs cloakroom/WC.
There is also a covered area that leads down the side of the property from the front to the utility room. A handy access area for storage.
On the first floor, three bedrooms and a modern family bathroom are connected by a long corridor landing. The charming character windows are particularly showcased on this floor in the bedrooms. There is a lovely window on the stairs too.
The second floor hosts the large main bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. This bedroom alone has around 270 sq.ft. of space with Velux windows looking over the rear garden.
The delightful rear garden, mainly laid to lawn with plenty of patio space offers privacy with a summer house at the back. It is a fantastic size (a rare commodity in Crick.) The front of the property is set back from the path and enclosed by iron fencing.
The property benefits from oil-fired central heating, with both the boiler and fuse box replaced in recent years.
Located in the heart of the village on the High Street, this characterful home is just a short walk from local amenities.
Crick is a sought-after village with a vibrant community spirit.
It offers the perfect village lifestyle with its many walks right on your doorstep, including Crack’s Hill, Millennium Wood and of course the beautiful Grand Union Canal.
You also have a local Co-op, Post Office and a choice of three pubs (The Wheatsheaf, Royal Oak, and The Red Lion – all within walking distance,) also there is the Ex-Servicemen’s Club (Crick Club) which is a great place to have a drink.
Pickle and Pie, the local deli does a fantastic range of breakfasts and lunches to eat in or take away – perfect if you’re working from home and want to nip somewhere for a coffee and a sandwich (their Scotch eggs are amazing too by the way!)
Crick also has many activity groups for the family including Cubs and Scouts, football, cricket, cycling and a local history group.
A lot of families move into Crick because it is a family friendly village and the surrounding schools are a huge attraction. Crick primary school is a short, safe walk away and there are many secondary schools within a few miles. 
Most children of secondary age in the village attend Guilsborough school; however, the two highly regarded, grammar schools, Lawrence Sheriff and Rugby High, are accessible through the eleven-plus examination, and there are further State-funded alternatives including Ashlawn in Hillmorton and the new secondary school at Houlton, to say nothing of the world famous, fee-paying Rugby School.
Crick is served by an excellent road network, being located within a couple of miles of Junction 18 on the M1 and only a few miles further from the M6 and the A14. Stations at Rugby and Long Buckby are both approximately seven miles away, they offer first-rate rail links to London and Birmingham.
A truly historic , charming and exceptional property in sought-after Crick. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or if you would like to book a viewing.
