About this property

An immaculately presented, limestone, and thatched cottage, sitting in the heart of the popular village of Lyndon with off-road parking, garaging and a wonderful south-facing garden offering the most beautiful views over the Rutland countryside.

Enter the property into an entrance dining hall with beams to the ceiling, wide boarded oak flooring, and a Bath stone fireplace. This flows through to the formal sitting room to the rear of the property with a large picture window overlooking the garden and views with a Clipsham stone fireplace.

The heart of the house is the open plan dining kitchen with beautiful reclaimed Italian terracotta tiled floor. There is a comprehensive range of handmade wooden kitchen units under granite worktops and an oak topped breakfast bar creating a separation between the kitchen and dining area. There is an integrated dishwasher, space for a fridge freezer and an oil-fired, four oven AGA providing cooking. The dining area has underfloor heating and half-glazed double doors opening out to the patio and garden.

Accessed from the dining kitchen is both a boot room and a useful walk-in pantry with a thrall for cold storage. The fantastic boot room provides the ideal space for muddy dogs and boots and offers a secondary sink, secondary oven for when the AGA is turned off in the summer and doors into the downstairs cloakroom and the single garage.

The entrance hall has two staircases, one leading down to the full height cellar, ideal for a wine collection or could be utilised as additional accommodation. The second staircase rises to the first-floor landing. The first-floor landing gives way to the bedroom and bathroom accommodation that comprising four double bedrooms and three bathrooms. The principal bedroom sits to the rear of the property enjoying fabulous views over the garden and countryside beyond. It is a well-proportioned room complemented by a dressing area and an ensuite bathroom.

There are three further large double bedrooms sitting to the front of the property with bedroom two having its own ensuite bathroom. Bedrooms three and four - currently used as an office - are served by the family bathroom comprising a bath with shower over, pedestal wash hand basin and low flush lavatory. The first floor is completed by a laundry room and linen cupboard with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The property is built and finished to a superb standard and although only approximately 20 years old, the style and feel is one of a much older, traditional home. The plasterwork throughout the house is exceptional and the features put in by the owners create a wonderful atmosphere.

The property is constructed of lime pointed stonework with a Collyweston porch. The roof is two thirds thatch with traditional tiles to the rear gables. The rear garden has been cleverly designed sympathetically landscaped with a combination of paths and gravel. York stone steps lead to a mature garden that is laid to lawn with floral and shrub borders, shaped box hedging and specimen trees providing year-round interest. To the rear of the garden is estate railing fencing and uninterrupted views over the open countryside and parkland. There is also a stone-built outhouse with a covered log store. This exceptional home in in such a unique location and must be viewed to be appreciated.
