About this property

A fine, period property boasting superb accommodation and thought suitable for re-modelling and renovation (subject to the necessary planning consents) located on the edge of this popular east Leicestershire village. This property is offered to the market with no upward chain.

The picturesque village of Gaulby is a small rural village located approximately seven miles east of Leicester city centre. The village retains a strong sense of community centred around the parish church with neighbourhood shopping, leisure facilities, GP surgery and schooling available neighbouring Billesdon, Houghton on the Hill and Great Glen. The village is surrounded by some of east Leicestershire's most outstanding rugged countryside, yet provides easy access into Leicester and the market towns of Oakham, Uppingham and Market Harborough, the latter providing mainline rail connections to London St Pancras in little over an hour.

The property is entered via a solid wood front door leading into the sitting room which has a window to the front elevation, an Inglenook brick fireplace with an inset cast iron log burner with a brass hood and tiled hearth, original exposed beams, solid oak flooring and houses the stairs to the first floor. An inner corridor with exposed beams and oak flooring leads to a snug with a window to the front elevation, exposed beams and a glazed door leading into the breakfast kitchen, with a window to the front elevation, a range of eye and base level cupboards with drawers, display cabinets and ample preparation surfaces, twin stainless steel sink and drainer units, electric cooker point, a disused Aga, plumbing for automatic washing machine, tiled flooring and a glazed door to the rear elevation.

An oak return staircase leads to the first floor landing, having uPVC double glazed windows to the front and rear elevations and oak flooring. The master bedroom has built-in wardrobes, ceiling coving, stripped flooring and a uPVC double glazed window to the front elevation. Bedroom two has a uPVC double glazed window to the front elevation, loft access and ceiling coving. Bedroom three has a uPVC double glazed window to the front elevation and ceiling coving. The bathroom has a window to the side elevation, wash hand basin, low flush WC, a shower bath with curved glass shower door and electric Mira shower, a built-in cupboard, stripped floorboards, part tiled walls, and houses the Worcester wall mounted boiler.

The annexe is entered via a wood and glazed door into a hallway. A cloakroom with tiled flooring and a window to the rear elevation provides a low flush WC and a wall hung wash hand basin. Steps lead into the open plan living/kitchen area which enjoys an abundance of natural light from the windows to both sides and rear elevation, a contemporary fireplace, exposed brick walls, a good range of white base level cupboards and drawers, preparation surfaces, a circular stainless steel sink and drainer unit with mixer tap, integrated stainless steel oven with induction hob over, ample white appliance space and tiled flooring. The bedroom has a window to the side. The bathroom has a window to the side, panelled bath with curved glass shower door and electric Triton shower, pedestal wash hand basin, built-in cupboard, part tiled walls and tiled floor. A separate WC with tiled flooring provides a low flush WC.

To the front of the property is a gravelled pathway leading to the front door with lawned gardens, tall pine trees and five-bar gated side access leading to a driveway with post and rail fencing leading to the lawned rear gardens, further gravelled car standing and a double garage with twin up and over doors, power and lights and a solid wood door leading to the side passage and the rear of the property with access to the annexe.

Proceed out of Leicester via the A6 London Road in a southerly direction, eventually taking a left hand turn at the traffic light complex into Stoughton Road eventually becoming Gartree Road, crossing over the next two roundabouts out of Oadby, passing the Leicester airport and eventually taking a left hand turn as signposted to Houghton on the Hill into Mere Road, turn left into Gaulby village, first left into Main Street and right into Front Street where Pine Trees can eventually be located on the left hand side.
