A spacious, five-bedroom, brick-built village home sitting in mature gardens with stabling and paddock land on the edge of this popular Leicestershire village.
The property is entered into a large and light filled dining hall with stairs rising to the first floor and doors off to the sitting room, kitchen, study and a downstairs WC.
The formal sitting room has Karndean floors, windows to the front and side, a feature fireplace with an open fire inset and built in shelving in the left-hand side chimney breast.
The study or snug sits to the rear of the property with further built in shelving offering plentiful storage space.
All three of these reception rooms have generous bay windows creating a real sense of space, allowing the light to flood in and affording wonderful views of the garden and beyond.
The kitchen breakfast room is the focal point of the ground floor with a comprehensive range of floor standing and wall mounted cupboards and drawers under solid granite worktops. There is an oil-fired AGA, space for a dishwasher, a Range cooker with extractor over and space and plumbing for an American style fridge freezer. The kitchen then opens into a garden/family room which has a floor to ceiling gable window looking out over the garden and windows to both sides.
The utility/boot room sits just off the kitchen and has additional storage and worktop space, space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, a boiler cupboard housing the oil-fired central heating boiler and a useful pantry cupboard.
To the first floor the generous landing gives access to the airing cupboard housing the pressurised hot water tank, the loft space and the bedroom and bathroom accommodation.
The master bedroom has windows on two sides looking out over the gardens and offers built in wardrobes and a spacious en-suite bathroom.
Bedroom two has built in double wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. The further three bedrooms are also a good size, one with further en-suite and the other two served by the family bathroom.
The family bathroom has a panelled bath with shower over, wash hand basin built into a vanity unit and a low flush WC.
To the outside, the property is approached through wrought-iron gates leading onto a large tarmac driveway giving access to the double garage. There is vehicular access down the left-hand side of the property leading down to the paddock. The house enjoys views over mature gardens which have a variety of flower beds and borders, an abundance of mature trees and shrubs providing year-round interest, plus a productive vegetable patch.
Just beyond the garden is the stable block which offers five stables, one being larger and currently used as a tack room. There is gated access both back into the garden and out into the three-acre paddock.
Stonesby is a pretty conservation village just outside Melton Mowbray. The village is well located with access to Grantham, Oakham, Leicester and Nottingham as well as being just eight miles from the A1.
