***NO CHAIN*** A significantly extended, four-bedroom character property that has been fully renovated throughout, sitting in beautiful countryside surroundings with ample off-road parking and flexible open plan living spaces.
Approached via a private tree-lined lane, this stunning stone-built farm cottage has recently completed an extensive course of renovation works, to include an impressive extension, providing generously proportioned rooms throughout, while still maintaining its period character features and charm.
Surrounded by rolling countryside, the house was redesigned to focus attention to the stunning uninterrupted views over the beautiful parkland of Withcote Hall directly to the rear of the property; incorporating ancient trees and an attractive lake.
Enter the property into a large entrance hall that opens up into an open plan living space, this area encompasses a sitting room, dining room and an open plan kitchen with a feature fireplace and three sets of French doors out to a patio and garden. There is an engineered Oak floor throughout with wet underfloor heating covering the entire ground floor with three zoned thermostats.
The kitchen area has a shaker style modern kitchen with central island under granite tops, a good range of floor standing and wall mounted cupboards and drawers, an induction hob, a Belfast sink with mixer tap over, eye level double oven, integrated dishwasher, integrated fridge and freezer and a set of French doors making the most of the glorious countryside views. All appliances are brand new and come with manufacturers warrantee's.
The ground floor continues with a separate reception room with a feature fireplace, looking out over the front garden and driveway that could be used as a study, playroom or snug.
There is a downstairs WC and a boot room / utility both with limestone flooring. The utility providing additional worktop and storage space, a secondary sink and a door out to the side of the property. This room also houses the oil-fired central heating boiler.
To the first floor, a large landing gives access to the bedroom and bathroom accommodation and also to the loft hatch access.
The master bedroom is a very generous size with two sets of windows looking out over the rear garden and countryside beyond, a feature fireplace and en-suite shower room with large walk in shower, low flush lavatory and wash hand basin.
Bedroom two, three and four are all good-sized double bedrooms, two overlooking the front garden and driveway and another to the rear overlooking the garden and countryside.
These three bedrooms are served by a family bathroom that has a double width shower enclosure, separate bath, low flush WC and wash hand basin. Both en-suite and family bathroom have been finished to an exacting standard
To the outside, there is ample parking on a large gravel driveway and plenty of space for a garage to be built. There is a then a lawn to the front with a path leading to the front door and also access down the side of the property to the rear garden.
The rear garden provides a flagstone patio area straight off the main living space that then drops down a couple of steps to the garden which is laid to lawn with views over the paddock behind and the rolling Leicestershire countryside.
The property is being offered to the market with a small paddock beyond the main garden with further land available by separate negotiation.
The property sits in a wonderful location between Tilton and Braunston benefitting from some lovely views. The entire property has been comprehensively renovated to a very high standard throughout, and we believe that this chain-free, newly finished remodel has all the advantages of a new-build property, but with the addition of period charm. It is a rare visitor to the open market and comes with the agent's highest recommendation for an internal inspection.
Withcote is a small hamlet sitting just 5 miles from the pretty market town of Oakham. Oakham and the surrounding area benefits from great transport links (Inc. A direct rail link to Kings Cross/St Pancras), excellent public and private schools and stunning countryside (Inc. Rutland water with its extensive range of outdoor pursuits).
