Property Description

This delightful detached cottage is a real gem that enjoys a central location in this favoured village which boasts a thriving village pub, the Fox and Hounds ( excellent food!) and allows easy access into Oakham (less than 10 mins drive), Melton Mowbray, Leicester and main road networks. The property has undergone recent, significant improvement and extension which has been carried out sympathetically and with a tasteful, premium specification. The end result has provided spacious, versatile living accommodation which cleverly blends original period charm and character with modern living amenities and space. The very generously proportioned living space is far more useable than many similar properties of this age, type and price range and is complimented by well balanced first floor accommodation that provides Three double bedrooms all highly individual with the potential for a fourth single bedroom should it be required. There are two beautifully appointed bathrooms that were completely refurbished with the master bathroom being very generously proportioned.

Externally the property is set in a superb, regular shaped plot which boasts excellent privacy ( being mainly walled and totally enclosed) and provides an abundance of colour in season. There is a large rockery, terrace for sitting and dining 'al-fresco', lawned area, 'skip hall' outbuilding storage, covered corner sitting area and access around the whole of the property to both sides. There is 'off road' parking to the front of the property.
