A Grade II listed cottage offering deceptively spacious accommodation over three floors, with pretty cottage gardens, a double garage and ample off-street parking.
Enter the property into the hallway with a good-sized cloaks cupboard, stairs to the first floor and doors into the dining room, snug, cloakroom and a glazed door taking you out to the drive and gardens.
The snug is a light filled well-proportioned room with a large window to the front, beams to the ceiling and a cosy gas fire. The spacious dining room has exposed stone detailing, beams and a large window to the front with an elegant window seat. Two set of double-glazed doors lead off this room into the kitchen and the rear hall.
The kitchen has a practical tiled floor with a good range of floor standing and wall mounted wooden cupboards and drawers. A double sink sits under the window overlooking the garden with mixer tap over. The kitchen includes an integrated double oven, fridge freezer and space for a dishwasher. Windows to two sides allow in plenty of light and a part glazed stable door leads out to the terrace and garden beyond. A well-placed utility next to the kitchen houses the gas fired boiler and offers further cupboard and drawer storage space and there is space and plumbing for further white goods.
The rear hall then leads on into the sitting room which is generously proportioned with high ceilings, beams and exposed stone work. A stone fireplace has shelving on either side and houses a gas wood burner creating a wonderful focal point for the room. Double glazed doors lead out into a large conservatory with doors out to the garden.
To the first floor there are two generous double bedrooms both with large windows to the front. The master bedroom has plenty of built in storage with a large fitted wardrobe and an en-suite shower room with a WC, wash hand basin and large shower cubicle. The first floor also accommodates the family bathroom with double shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin set into a vanity unit. The internal accommodation is completed by stairs to the second floor where there are two further double bedrooms both with Velux windows allowing in plenty of light.
To the outside the property is raised up on a large grass bank and set well back from the road. To the right-hand side of the property the driveway leads up to a large double garage. A good-sized patio runs down one side of the property making the most of the morning sun and flows on into the pretty south facing cottage garden. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with raised borders and a range of well-established shrubs and trees offering year-round interest and a part brick greenhouse situated to the rear of the garage.
Whissendine is a large community village which lies approximately 5 miles from Oakham and 6.5 miles from Melton Mowbray. Within the village there are two public houses, a church, primary school and a fantastic village shop with cafe. In addition, there is a sports complex with playing fields and cricket ground just on the outskirts of the village. Whissendine is a great location for commuters with British Rail terminals at Oakham, Melton Mowbray and Grantham.
From Burley Park Way (the bypass) take a right hand turn at the roundabout signposted to Ashwell onto Ashwell Road and on entering the village of Ashwell take a left hand turn onto Whissendine Road. Once in Whissendine the road bends sharply to the left and Hilborough House can be found a little after this bend on the left-hand side of the road.
