About this property
A charming and deceptively spacious character cottage in an idyllic location with far-reaching views of the rolling Leicestershire countryside.
Enter the property into an entrance hall with stairs rising to first floor, a downstairs WC just off and a door giving access to the rest of the ground floor accommodation. The entrance hall opens into a family room that has beams to the ceiling and a lovely stone fireplace with an open fire. An archway from here flows into the generous sized formal sitting room that also has a large feature fireplace with a wood burning stove inset. This room has large floor to ceiling sliding doors that fill the room with light from the adjoining timber-framed conservatory that has French doors out to the garden and provides wonderful views over the garden and countryside beyond.
There is a dining room just off the sitting room that looks out to the front of the property and the farmhouse style kitchen sits to the rear. The kitchen has a good range of shaker style cupboards and drawers, space for a Range style cooker with extractor fan over, an integrated fridge, space for a dishwasher, a sink with mixer tap over and a very useful pantry cupboard. The kitchen also provides space for a breakfast table with lovely views into the garden and over neighbouring countryside. A utility room sits just off providing further storage, space and plumbing for white goods, a secondary sink, space for a tall freezer and a door into the integral garage. This room also houses the oil-fired central heating boiler.
To the first floor there are four bedrooms, a bathroom and a large Jack and Jill en-suite. The spacious principal bedroom sits to the rear of the property with ample storage in the built-in wardrobes, two windows taking advantage of the stunning views and an en-suite bathroom comprising a panelled bath, separate shower cubicle, two wash hand basins and a low flush lavatory. The en-suite can be accessed from both the principal bedroom and the landing. Bedroom two, three and four sit to the front of the property with two and four providing built-in storage. These three bedrooms are served by the family bathroom with panelled bath with shower over, wash hand basin and low flush lavatory as well as incredible views to the rear.
The rear garden provides a terraced area accessed off the garden room through double doors, this space is ideal for outdoor entertaining and dining. The terrace steps down to a further terrace area, an ornamental pond and then down to the lawn. The garden has an array of mature floral and shrub borders as well as mature specimen trees providing year-round interest. The views from the back of the cottage and the garden are uninterrupted over some of the county's prettiest countryside.
This property is a very rare visitor to the open market and is quite unique in its setting given the very few houses in the village. It provides a lovely rural style of living with fantastic views and access to beautiful countryside but is also within a short drive of larger local villages and market towns. It is a property that must be viewed to be appreciated.
Located in some of the most beautiful rolling Leicestershire countryside, Marefield is a small, but well positioned, hamlet. All of the local market towns are within a short drive, as well as Leicester city centre. Just one mile to the south, Tilton on the Hill has a pub, village shop, post office and garage. There are primary schools in the nearby villages of Billesdon and Tugby. Public schools are at Oakham, Uppingham, Oundle, Stamford and Leicester. The A47 lies 3 miles south of the property, offering good east-west access to both the M1 and the A1, whilst Rutland Water, just 9 miles distant, offers a wide array of recreational pursuits.
Leave Oakham on Braunston Road and continue through Braunston and on towards Tilton. After leaving Braunston continue on this road for approximately 4 miles, you will see a signpost for Marefield, take a right here and follow this road until you reach the village of Marefield. The Chase is the second property on your left when entering the village.
