About this property
Priests House is a Grade II listed property originally built in the 1600s, an enchanting, four-bedroom ironstone home offering flexible accommodation arranged over three floors. It sits in mature and secluded gardens in a private village setting within easy reach of the historic market town of Uppingham.
Priests House offers deceptively spacious accommodation and has been beautifully and lovingly updated by the current owners whilst still bursting at the seams with character. The vaulted breakfast kitchen sits central to the property with the three reception rooms on either side. The kitchen itself has a comprehensive range of handmade, solid oak fitted units under granite worktops with a variety of integrated appliances, a Quooker tap, space for a Range style cooker and a central island with breakfast bar. There is a door out to the front of the property and steps up into a vaulted reception room that has a glazed door opening out to a sunny patio and access to the utility/cloakroom. The utility/cloakroom offers further storage, and space for a washer and a dryer. On the opposite side of the kitchen, you will find the two further reception rooms. The first, a dining room with exposed stone walls, beams to the ceiling and an Inglenook fireplace. A hallway then leads through to the dual aspect living room, again with beams to the ceiling and a beautiful stone fireplace housing a log burning stove.
The bedroom and bathroom accommodation are arranged over two floors, the first floor comprises a spacious, dual-aspect double bedroom with built-in wardrobes, a single bedroom, and a family bathroom. The second floor comprises two further double bedrooms, one that is currently used as a home office. All four bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with a bath, walk-in shower, wash hand basin, low flush lavatory, and heated towel rail.
The property sits on a generous and secluded plot with mature gardens wrapping around three sides. The driveway is accessed from Church Close, via a set of double timber gates and down a gravelled driveway leading to the house. There is ample space for parking and a garage block with a single garage and carport. To the front of the property there is a large, south-facing patio offering the ideal spot to enjoy the sun throughout most of the day. A gravelled pathway leads past the garage where there is a further patio with a timber pergola and then round to the rear garden. The rear garden has a lawned space with a variety of raised borders and a summer house.
Caldecott is the most southerly village in Rutland nestled in the Welland Valley with a delightful church, two pubs, a vibrant village community and sitting in the catchment area for Bringhurst primary school. There is excellent access to Leicester, Peterborough, Corby, and Kettering, all with main line train services and the ability of reaching London within the hour. Uppingham is just 5 minutes' drive away providing amenities and several excellent primary and secondary schools. There is fishing on the nearby Eyebrook reservoir and water sports for all at Rutland Water with golf courses for every ability nearby.
