A charming period cottage prominently situated in the centre of this desirable village offering extensive scope for improvement and alteration
An individual period cottage that sits prominently on church street in the centre of this well serviced, very desirable village located within just a few minutes driving distance ( also hourly bus service and cycle / footpath ) of Oakham and Rutland Water offering numerous interests and activities.
The cottage is Grade II listed, although we should point out this is not a detraction in our view as many properties in the area are listed and have successfully been improved, redeveloped and altered. In fact the property has been extended in the 70's / 80's with the original cottage believed to date back to the C17th. Naturally to make changes listed building consent is required but is a process and if approached correctly, with the right proposals and sympathetic ideas can be extremely rewarding in additon to the potential of adding capital value to the property.
The property offers excellent reception space and internal floor area which was once a former bakery and hosted the village shop / PO retaining its original shop front to part and this space has many options being ripe for improvement / reconfiguration.
Externally whilst there is no off road parking, there is immediate parking adjacent to the property where residents and neighbours can use. There is a small rear patio and some borders but the real selling point of the outside space is it is virtually maintenance free and would make this property ideal for use as a second home / holiday home and or holiday rental as it enjoys a secure location and easily lock up and leave.
Pathway leads to rear door opening into:
Ground floor: Utility, w.c / cloakroom, breakfast kitchen, living room, reception space ( former shop area) with front door and porch
First floor: Landing, two double bedrooms, one single room, bathroom
Outside: Pathway to side leads to small rear patio and borders / hedge to front of property, ample space for numerous pots.
We are advised that Mains Gas, Water, Electricity and Drainage are connected to the property.
