About this property


A detached 3/4-bedroom bungalow with development potential sitting in a completely unique setting on a plot of approximately 2.5 acres offering breath-taking views over the neighbouring countryside.

Enter the property into a spacious hallway giving access to the living and bedroom accommodation. There is a large L-shaped dining kitchen with windows to three elevations and sliding glazed doors providing ample light and views over the surrounding gardens. There are a range of floor-standing and wall mounted units, an eye-level double oven, gas-hob with extractor over and sink with mixer tap over. Just off the kitchen is a useful utility room with further storage, an additional sink, space and plumbing for white goods and a door out to the garden.

The focal point of the property is the large sitting room, accessed off both the entrance hall and dining kitchen. This room has a feature fireplace with open fire and large glazed sliding doors opening out to and providing wonderful views over the garden and countryside beyond.

The property has three/four bedrooms depending on how an occupier chooses to utilise them. Bedroom one sits on the west side of the property with built-in wardrobes and stunning views through a large picture window. Bedrooms two and three are good size double rooms both with built-in cupboards. Bedroom four is a single bedroom with built-in storage however has historically been used as a study. All the bedrooms are served by a shower room with a large corner shower, low flush WC and wash hand basin.

Although the accommodation would benefit from a program of modernisation the living space is generously sized and flows well.

There is ample off-road parking and plenty of space to build a garage subject to the necessary planning consent and building regulations.

The gardens for the property are wonderfully mature with a wide array of fauna and flora as well as some stunning mature trees to include several magnificent Canadian redwoods.

The property is as much about the gardens and plot size as it is about the house itself and we believe it offers a huge amount of potential for a buyer that wants to extend or build their own home on an incredibly unique plot and location within the country, subject to the necessary planning consents and building regulations. This property is a rare offering to the open market and must be viewed to be appreciated.

Cold Overton is situated on the Leicestershire/Rutland borders in some of the county's most scenic countryside. Cold Overton is a small rural village with easy access to the popular market towns of Oakham, Uppingham and Market Harborough, the latter providing mainline rail access to London St. Pancreas in just over an hour. The area is particularly well served by popular schooling in both the state and private sectors with primary schools nearby in Somerby, Langham and Oakham itself and high performing secondary schools in both Uppingham and Oakham.
