About this property

  • Enjoying a secluded setting in the centre of the village, this striking property dated from the 1930s and was the village's Police house.  Renovated and extended since, the current four bedroom residence offers spacious and flexible accommodation ideal, for family living as well as professional couples working from home. 

    Externally there are pretty landscaped gardens to three sides, as well as a gated gravel driveway and detached garage with parking.

    A wide flagstone floored entrance hall, with exposed brickwork, sets the scene on entering the house.  There is a spacious 16' dual-aspect sitting room with French doors to the garden, a separate dining room and large kitchen/breakfast room, also with French doors to the garden which line the easterly aspect of the house. 

    There is plenty of space for appliances in the well-appointed farmhouse style kitchen, complete with double oven and 6-ring gas hob.  There is an adjoining utility room. and a boot room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.

    The neutral décor and characterful dark wood framed windows continue on the first floor, where there are three double bedrooms (one with en suite shower room), a modern family bathroom and a fourth bedroom/study, with views across the bowling green.

    Nestling between Pinfold Lane and the adjacent Kings Close, this property occupies an attractive corner plot surrounded by hedging on three sides with steps up to a front gate.

    A manicured lawn wraps around the house, leading the way to a pleasantly landscaped rear garden, where dual patio areas are ideal for outdoor seating and well-stocked beds house an excellent selection of flowering plants and shrubs.

    Separated from the rear garden by a charming picket fence, the gated gravel driveway offers parking for several vehicles, accessed via Kings Close, while a detached brick-built garage provides secure parking and storage.

This is a charming cottage, with nicely proportioned rooms and high ceilings. Dating from the 1930s, and for many years the village's police house, it has been a much loved and lavished home, in one of my favourite Rutland villages. Lovely rural walks can start and end on from the footpath across the lane from this house, or indeed from the village's pub, whilst the cricket and bowls clubs, among others, also ensure that this is simply a nice and active village to be part of.
