About this property

A charming iron stone and stone mullioned period cottage with a wealth of character and sitting within one of Rutland's most popular and sought-after villages.

The property's accommodation in brief comprises an entrance hall leading to the ground floor accommodation.

There is a formal sitting room to the front of the property with an ornate feature fireplace, stone mullion window to the front and bespoke made cabinetry and book shelving built in to the chimney breast recesses.

The dining room also has lovely stone mullion and crittle window, feature fireplace with a multi fuel burning stove, ample storage within the bespoke built cupboards and shelving units and an additional large storage cupboard underneath the staircase.

Just off the dining room is the kitchen which has a good range of floor standing and wall mounted units, a stainless-steel sink with mixer tap, space and plumbing for a washing machine, slimline dishwasher, fridge freezer and also the electric oven. A door from the kitchen out to the walled garden.

To the first floor the master bedroom sits to the front of the property with lovely timber exposed floorboards, another stone mullion window providing countryside views, a feature fireplace and built in storage cupboards.

The second bedroom sits to the rear overlooking the garden and like the main bedroom has a feature fireplace and built in cupboards.

The two bedrooms are served by a generous sized bathroom that has a bath with shower over, low flush lavatory and a pedestal wash hand basin. The bathroom also houses the airing cupboard with the hot water tank.

The internal accommodation is completed by the loft hatch located on the landing which leads you to a large boarded and lit loft space.

To the outside the parking provision is on the road side. The red brick, walled garden sits just off the kitchen benefitting from the south and westerly sun.

This charming character cottage is an incredibly rare visitor to the open market and must be viewed to be appreciated.
