A characterful, double-fronted, stone property sitting in the middle of this popular Rutland village with many period features and a large south-facing garden.
Enter the property into an entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor and doors to the ground floor accommodation which is made up of a formal living room sitting to the front of the property with two sash windows looking to the front, a feature fireplace and other period features including the parquet flooring and the dado rail around the room.
Also sitting to the front of the property is the dining room again with a sash window to the front and parquet flooring.
Another large reception room sits to the rear of the property with a set of French doors out to the garden.
There is a well-served kitchen with a comprehensive range of floor standing and wall mounted cupboards and drawers, a large storage/pantry cupboard under the stairs, space for a Range style cooker, space and plumbing for white goods, a ceramic sink with mixer tap and double doors out to a patio and the garden.
To the first-floor a landing gives access to the bedroom and bathroom accommodation which comprises three double bedrooms and a bathroom.
The principal bedroom sits above the sitting room at the front of the property with a sash window and a very large storage cupboard.
Another bedroom sits to the front of the property with a sash window and a third bedroom sits to the rear of the property with a large window looking over the garden to the south.
The bathroom to the property has a free standing, roll top bath, a wash hand basin and WC.
A door from the landing gives access up to the loft space that is large enough to be converted into additional bedroom and bathroom accommodation subject to planning and building regulation approval.
To the outside there is off road parking on the gravel driveway which is accessed down the right-hand side of the property.
The initial part of the garden is a hard-landscaped terrace that then drops down to a gravelled area with pots and plants with a brick built double garage come workshop just beyond. Walking down the right-hand side of the garage leads you into the larger element of the garden which is predominantly laid to lawn with hedging and fencing on all sides providing a great degree of security and privacy. The garden has a multitude of mature specimen trees and plants providing year-round interest and with the garden being on the south side of the property it benefits from the sun for the entirety of the day.
This characterful village property does require a degree of updating and modernisation but offers a potential buyer a house in a sought-after village with potential to add significant value.
