About this property
A charming and deceptively spacious, stone village home presented to an immaculate standard complete with a 600 ft² annexe sitting in the popular village of South Luffenham.
THE MAIN COTTAGE
Enter the property into an entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor and doors to the ground floor accommodation. To the middle of the property is an open plan kitchen dining space. The kitchen itself has a comprehensive range of floor standing and wall mounted units with a combination of timber and granite worktops. There is a Belfast sink with mixer tap over, an integrated dishwasher and space for both under counter white goods and a Range style cooker. The kitchen steps up to the dining area that features two large sash windows that look out to the garden.
Beyond the kitchen dining space sits a reception room located at the rear of the property with a large amount of glazing looking out over the garden and glazed double doors providing access to a patio and seating area.
Sitting to the front of the property is a further reception room with a feature fireplace housing a multifuel burning stove. This room has a large sash window to the front, cast-iron radiator, storage built-in to the chimney recess and a large storage cupboard under the stairs.
The ground floor accommodation is completed by a downstairs WC with low flush lavatory, wash hand basin, storage cupboard and utility cupboard housing space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The downstairs WC has historically had space for a shower and the plumbing still exists should the next owner wish to reinstate a downstairs shower room.
To the first floor the cottage provides two double bedrooms and a further single bedroom. The principal bedroom being the largest and featuring built-in wardrobes. A beautifully refurbished main bathroom serves all three bedrooms and provides a low flush lavatory, large walk-in shower and wash hand basin.
THE SMITHY - ANNEXE
Sitting opposite the front of the property on the opposite side of the gravel driveway is a fantastic 600 ft² single-storey annexe that currently comprises a kitchen, two reception rooms, two bedrooms, a shower room and separate WC. The annexe could provide the next owner with a multitude of uses from ancillary accommodation to the main dwelling to a home office space, a gym or a combination of the above.
There is ample parking on the gravelled driveway access through wrought-iron double gates. The garden sits to the rear of the main cottage and is arrange over several different levels. There is a wonderful array of mature floral and shrub borders, exposed stone walls and winding paths that culminates with a fantastic patio and seating area sitting under a thatched and timber Serengeti hut.

There are two popular public houses, with the local primary school being in the next-door village of North Luffenham. Rutland Water provides an abundance of water sport activities including sailing, windsurfing and fishing. The picturesque, historic market towns of Uppingham, Stamford and Oakham are four, seven and nine miles away respectively, provide for local shopping, and an excellent choice of schools. An easy drive along the A47 into Peterborough provides access to the East Coast mainline - 50 minutes into London.

Continue on this road through the village of Glaston and further on taking a left turn onto the A6121 at Morcott. Continue on this road until you come into South Luffenham.
