About this property
A quintessential, Grade II listed character cottage with an abundance of original features sitting in one of East Leicestershire's most popular villages.
The accommodation comprises a surprisingly spacious living room complete with feature fireplace housing an open fire, beams to the ceiling and a large window to the front.
The sitting room leads on into the dining room with stairs rising to the first floor with ample storage beneath. As the property has been extended in its life the dining room was once the rear of the property and still retains the original glazed window that now looks into the kitchen. A door leads from the dining room into the kitchen that has a comprehensive range of floor standing and wall mounted units under wooden worktops, an integrated electric oven, gas hob with extractor over, stainless-steel sink, space and plumbing for white goods. There is a large window looking out to the rear garden and a stable door opening out to the patio. The kitchen also has a large and useful pantry cupboard.
Stairs rise to the first-floor landing giving access to the bedroom and bathroom accommodation. There is a large double bedroom sitting to the front of the property with built-in wardrobes and a slightly vaulted ceiling giving a great ceiling height and sense of space. The second bedroom sits to the rear of the property overlooking the garden and is an ideal nursery/single bedroom but could also be used as a first-floor home study. The bedrooms are served by a bathroom with a pedestal wash hand basin, bath with shower over, low flush lavatory and heated towel rail. The bathroom also has a large airing cupboard that houses the new gas-fired central heating boiler installed last year and still under warranty.
The internal accommodation is completed with the large loft space that is accessed from the landing that is boarded throughout and has lighting.
The property has a very pretty and mature cottage garden. There is a block paved patio area sitting off the kitchen providing an ideal space for outdoor dining. The patio steps up to a raised lawn with mature floral and shrub borders and a path leading down the side of the garden to a shed and rear pedestrian access. This beautifully presented character cottage is a lovely example of a traditional village home and is offered to the market with the agents' strongest recommendation for an internal inspection.
Hallaton is a thriving village and community conveniently situated for the market towns at Market Harborough, Oakham and Uppingham, with the regional centre at Leicester to the north. The area is very well served by popular schooling at junior and secondary level both in the state and private sector. Sporting and leisure facilities are well catered for locally with Hallaton and nearby Medbourne. Access to London St. Pancras is available in just under an hour from Market Harborough train station.
Leave Oakham on the A6003 towards Uppingham. Upon reaching Uppingham take the third exit on the roundabout heading towards Leicester on the A47. Continue along the A47 and just before reaching the village of East Norton turn left off the A47 following signs for Hallaton. Once in the village of Hallaton continue down through the village passing the Fox Public House on your left, continuing onto Eastgate, you will find number 43 on your left-hand side.
