About this property

A characterful, iron-stone, Grade II listed three-bedroom cottage sitting in an elevated position with a pretty South-West facing garden, located in the heart of this sought-after Rutland village.

The cottage is approached through a wrought iron gate opening onto a path leading to the front door. The front door opens into a small entrance hall with stairs rising to the first-floor and a door into the dining room. A wonderful red-brick floor continues from the entrance hall into the dining room that has exposed timbers, a large inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove and windows with window seats to two elevations.

The dining room gives way to the sitting room that has the original flagstone floor, a timber beam to the ceiling and a window and window seat looking out over the front garden.

Sitting to the rear of the property is the kitchen, a large enough space to accommodate a small breakfast table and chairs. There are a range of floor-standing units, space for a variety of appliances and windows to two sides allowing plenty of light and lovely views over the rear garden. The kitchen is complemented by a useful walk-in pantry and also has a door into a rear hall. The rear hall offers further storage and space for white goods and also a door opening out to the south-west facing garden.

Stairs rise to the first-floor landing that has two south-facing windows allowing plenty of light and access to the bedroom and bathroom accommodation. There are three generously-sized bedrooms, the principal bedroom being the largest sits to the rear of the property looking out over the garden. The two further bedrooms sit to the front, bedroom two overlooking the front garden and village street scene and bedroom three looking out to the rear garden. All bedrooms are served by a family bathroom that has a bath, separate shower, wash hand basin and a low flush lavatory.

Pied Calf Cottage would benefit from a full-scale modernisation throughout and offers the next owner a wonderful project and huge potential to create a superb village home.

The property has a small front garden with a pedestrian access to the left-hand side of the property leading to the rear garden. Sitting just off the rear the property is a hard-landscaped area which gives way to a stone retaining wall and steps that lead up to a mature garden. The garden area is mainly laid to lawn with mature and floral shrub borders and many specimen trees providing year-round interest and a great degree of privacy.

The garden sits on the south-west side of the property and stretches a good distance to the rear providing a generous size garden benefitting from the sun throughout the entirety of the day. The garden like the house itself would benefit from a scale of works and offers the next owner a wonderful opportunity to create a garden to their own detailed specification.

This lovely characterful home is offered to the market with the agent's strongest recommendation for an internal inspection.
