About this property

A four-bedroom detached property in need of modernisation throughout, sitting on a generous corner plot in a sought-after location close to Oakham town centre.

The accommodation comprises a large and light entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor and doors to the ground floor accommodation. To the left there is a spacious living room spanning the depth of the property with a feature fireplace, windows to two elevations and a large set of sliding doors opening out to the garden.

A set of glazed double doors lead from the living room into the dining room that has a large window overlooking the garden, glazing looking back into the entrance hall allowing plenty of light and a door into the kitchen.

The breakfast kitchen that has a good range of floor standing and wall mounted units, stainless-steel sink, space and plumbing for multiple appliances and room for a small breakfast table. There is a generous sized utility room located just off the kitchen offering further storage space and has a door to both the front and side of the property.

The ground floor provides a further reception room that has historically been used as an office and is completed by a downstairs WC just off the entrance hall.

To the first floor there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom sits to the front of the property with windows to the front and side. Bedrooms two, three and four sit to the rear of the property, all with built-in storage and windows overlooking the rear garden. The family bathroom serves all four bedrooms with a double shower enclosure, low flush lavatory and wash hand basin.

There is plenty of parking on a block-paved driveway that provides access to a double garage with roller shutter doors and to a path leading to the front door.

Sitting on a corner plot the property benefits from ample outside space with the garden sweeping from the front of the property wrapping around the left-hand side and round to the rear. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with an array of mature floral and shrub borders as well as an orchard full of apples, plums, pears and greengage. A patio sits off the rear of the property and with the garden being south-facing it benefits from sunshine for the majority of the day.

This very rare visitor to the open market offers huge potential for modernisation and extension subject to the necessary consents and is a property that must be viewed to be appreciated.
