About this property

Sandy Lane House is a six-bedroom Edwardian home built in 1901, whilst the current owners have modernised throughout it retains much of its original character and stands in its own plot of approximately a third of an acre with off-road parking, garaging and a south-facing garden, all within easy walking distance of Melton Mowbray town centre.

The property itself is arranged over three floors plus a cellar. The ground floor in brief comprises a dining kitchen, three reception rooms, a utility room, and a downstairs cloakroom. A porch leads to the front door that opens into the impressive entrance hall with original Minton style tiled flooring and the wonderful original staircase. The two main reception rooms sit to the front, both generously sized with feature fireplaces and beautiful bay windows allowing plenty of light and the drawing room with a log burner. The third reception room, the sitting room/study has a large bay window with a built-in bookshelf and a beautiful feature fireplace.

The dining kitchen sits at the rear of the property with a range of fitted units, integrated appliances, space for a Range style cooker and a walk-in pantry/larder cupboard. There is a second set of stairs leading to the first floor and a door opening out to the patio and garden. The large utility room offers further storage, a Belfast sink and space for white goods.

To the first floor there are four double bedrooms and three bathrooms. The largest two bedrooms sit at the front of the property and mirror the reception rooms below with large bay windows. The two further bedrooms sit towards the rear, both double rooms with sash windows and built in wardrobes. Bedroom four offers a unique, split-level layout with both a bedroom area and a sitting/study area. The second floor consists of a double bedroom with wash hand basin with access to a large boarded and lit loft and a single bedroom/study.

The large wrap-around plot extends to approximately a third of an acre with the main garden having a sunny southerly orientation. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature borders and specimen trees. A patio area sits directly off the dining kitchen offering a great space for outdoor entertaining. The garden is walled or fenced on all sides providing a great degree of privacy and security.

The block-paved driveway provides ample off-road parking and gives way to the double garage with up and over doors. The garage, subject to the necessary planning consents and building regulations approval, could be adapted to create a self-contained annex.
