About this property
A quintessential thatched & ironstone village home, finished to a beautiful specification with an abundance of charm & character combined with modern open plan living spaces.
Enter the property into an entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor and doors to the ground floor accommodation. To your right is the beautiful formal sitting room with stone mullion windows to two elevations, original beams to the ceilings and a feature fireplace with gas burning stove inset.
To your left is a second reception room, historically used as a dining room but currently used as a reception room also with a feature fireplace and a large cupboard under the stairs. This room leads into the beautifully fitted bespoke country kitchen with a flagstone floor, pine cupboards and drawers under black granite worktops, a ceramic sink with mixer tap over, plumbing for white goods and space for a Range style cooker with extractor fan over.
Flowing off the kitchen is the open plan living space with ample space for table and chairs and a couple of steps up to the snug which is a converted outbuilding with a vaulted roof and Velux windows. The main feature of this space is the exposed original ironstone and the wonderful green oak extension with floor-to-ceiling windows and a set of double doors opening out to the patio and garden beyond.
The property has two staircases, one from the entrance hall giving access to bedroom one and two and a bathroom. Another set rises from the open plan living space giving access to the third bedroom and a second bathroom.
The master bedroom is a generous double room with built-in wardrobes and windows to two sides allowing plenty of light and a lovely view into the village. Bedroom two, also a generous size double and with windows to two elevations has ample storage in the eaves and a built-in cupboard that if required, provides access through to bedroom three. These bedrooms are served by a recently refitted bathroom that has been finished to an exacting standard and a separate WC with a lavatory and wash hand basin.
The stairs rising from the open plan living space give access to bedroom three, a double bedroom with a rooflight window and built in wardrobe. This bedroom is served by its own bathroom that has a panelled bath with shower over, pedestal wash hand basin, low flush lavatory and a large cupboard.
To the outside the property faces the Main Street providing a lovely view straight down the historic street scene of Preston. To the rear there is a private gravelled driveway accessed off Uppingham Road providing ample parking and a path leading round to the garden. The garden has a lawned area bordered by mature flowers shrubs, specimen trees and a pergola with mature roses and other climbing plants. A flagstone patio sits directly off the open plan living space and continues round the rear providing plenty of space for outdoor entertaining. There is also a lovely area cocooned between the original ironstone house and the boundary wall that enjoys the morning sunshine.
The pretty village of Preston is located just under two miles North of the market town of Uppingham which provides a good choice of local amenities and facilities including a local market twice a week and a choice of excellent private and state schools. The A47 provides easy access to Peterborough, Leicester and beyond whilst the east coast mainline, running through Peterborough, allows easy access to London and the north-east of England.
Head out of Oakham on the Uppingham Road, when entering the village of Preston on the A6003 you will find Main Street on your right-hand side. Turn onto Main Street and continue all the way along to far end and you will find Little Yew Tree on your left-hand side.
