Originally dating to the late 18th century with later additions, Spion Kop is an attractive
characterful stone cottage with a wealth of original features throughout including original
beams, exposed stone walls, working fireplaces and traditionally tiled floors.
The ground floor has a lovely flow, with the reception room spread to either side of an inner
hall, from which the stairs rise to the first floor.
The drawing room, which sits to the front of the house and is of a good size, has a large bay
window with window seat to the front overlooking the pretty gardens, traditional open
fireplace with stone surround, timber lintel and copper hood, an exposed stone wall to one
side makes for an attractive feature, and the beamed ceilings give a lovely sense of the history
of the property. From here, a door leads through to the inner hall and on to a cosy dining
room, also with open fireplace. This in turn leads through to a light and airy breakfasting room,
which has doors leading into a small conservatory, and the kitchen. The kitchen is well
equipped, with a good range of wall and floor mounted units in a shaker style, wood and
contrasting granite work surfaces, a Twyford enamelled sink, Rangemaster, and large
larder/pantry cupboard. From the kitchen, a rear hall leads to a utility room, downstairs shower
room, a family room, and study, office or playroom.
To the first floor, there are two double bedrooms, both with built in storage, the larger of the
two having a vanity unit with sink, a single bedroom, and a large family bathroom.
Set in an elevated position above Loddington Road, Spion Kop enjoys a sunny aspect, with
pretty cottage gardens set to the front offering wide, well planted beds full of summer colour
including stunning hydrangeas, fuschia, rosese, poppies, daisies and much more. A wisteria is
growing along the front of the cottage, and mature hedging and trees including silver birch
and cherry give a good level of privacy, with a pretty brick terrace set adjacent to the
conservatory being a perfect place for a table and chairs set to catch the sunshine.
