About this property
Tudor Cottage is a charming and deceptively spacious Grade II listed, iron-stone cottage with a wealth of character, sitting on a generous wrap-around plot at the centre of this quiet Rutland hamlet.
Enter the property via an entrance porch that leads into a family room with timber stairs rising to the first floor and doors to the ground floor accommodation. The room is full of character with exposed beams, a timber floor and a wonderful inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove and the old bread oven.
To the left of the family room is a further reception room currently used as a study that can be accessed off either the family room or the main living room. The study also has exposed beams, timber flooring and an exposed stone wall. The generously sized main living room spans the depth of the property with a feature fireplace and French doors opening out to the garden.
A rear hallway runs from the living room across the back of the house giving access to the garden room and the open plan dining kitchen. There is also a downstairs WC sitting just off. The garden room is glazed on all sides with two sets of double doors opening out onto the patio and garden beyond.
Completing the ground floor is the spacious open plan dining kitchen with tiled floor, exposed beams and stonework, echoing the character you see throughout the rest of the house. The kitchen itself has a great range of floor standing and wall mounted units under timber worktops, a double Belfast sink, space for a Range style cooker and multiple white goods and a beautiful stone fireplace with an oak mantle and wood burning stove inset. The room has ample space for dining furniture and two doors, one leading to the driveway and garage and another leading out to the rear garden.
To the first floor there are four bedrooms and a bathroom. The principal bedroom sits to one end of the property with windows to two elevations allowing plenty of light and is complemented by an en-suite shower room. There are three further bedrooms on the first-floor that are served by the family bathroom with whirlpool bath, separate shower unit, low flush lavatory and wash hand basin.
A second set of stairs rise to the second floor where there are two further rooms, one a sizable space with en-suite facilities and a smaller room that could be utilised as either a bedroom, a study or evening further storage space.
The property is approached via a five-bar timber gate opening onto an ample block-paved driveway providing access to the detached garage and the rear garden. To the rear, there is a large block-paved and flagstone patio offering a wonderful outside space for entertaining. The garden continues with a mature ornamental pond as well as an area that is predominantly laid to lawn. The rear is an incredibly private space with mature hedges and trees and due to its Southerly orientation enjoys the sun for the entirety of the day.
This wonderful home is a rare visitor to the open market and represents a fantastic opportunity to acquire a flexible and well-proportioned character property that would benefit from minor modernisation throughout.
Thorpe by Water is a small rural village a few miles to the south of the Rutland market town of Uppingham where there are main facilities and amenities, together with a full range of shops and a weekly produce market catering for most needs. In addition, there are other facilities including doctors' and dentists' surgeries, post office, library and a wide variety of schools for children of all age ranges. For commuters the village is within easy driving distance of a number of centres with good train services to London from both Kettering and Peterborough, the journey time from the latter destination to King's Cross taking only 50 minutes approximately.
