    About this property

    • A detached dwelling, originally constructed as the Headmaster's residence for the then school at Tixover Grange, The Cedars commands delightful semi-rural setting with easterly views over its fields and the River Welland, the county boundary between Rutland and Northamptonshire, to rising ground to Collyweston in the distance.

      A substantial six bedroom residence with enacted planning consent through the construction of the triple garage block and annex above, the consent permits the property's further enlargement, reconfiguration and redressing in stone, under Rutland County Council's planning consent reference: APP/2011/0505.

      With two driveway entrances, one to the house and its garaging and annex, and another to a large steel portal framed workshop and accessing the 13 acres of level pasture which bounds to the River Welland and four stable stable block, The Cedars is a wonderful family property with potential for equestrian and other lifestyle uses.

      The house offers extensive and versatile accommodation extending to circa 3,500 square feet. With five reception rooms, an impressive family kitchen with bi folding doors to the garden and views across the land and six bedrooms served by three bath or shower rooms, heated by a choice of biomass and oil central heating systems.

      The house has a great flow and finish. From the entrance hall to the right, the principal reception rooms are almost all dual aspect, with views over and the gardens and landscape, and the abiding feel is one of natural light and space. The sitting room has a wood burning stove as well as bank of bi-folding doors to the garden. The snug/morning room is a convivial reception area alongside the kitchen.

      The family kitchen is fabulous, triple aspect and with two sets of bi-folding opening to the morning terrace and views. It is fitted with an extensive suite, with integrated NEFF appliances and offers ample space for seating, eating and dining.

      From the entrance hallway to the left, the largely glazed dining room adjoins a vaulted games room, with door to the garden and a ground floor bedroom suite which, together, offer an internal annex for relatives.

      At first floor the large landing accesses five bedrooms and the family bathroom. The principal bedroom suite offers fabulous views over the land, with a large ensuite shower room. Bedroom two is vaulted, with access to a balcony, whilst double bedrooms, three and four, along with bedroom five, are served by the family bathroom.

      The house is set back from the lane with an extensive gravelled turning sweep, with access to the triple garage and sits within gardens and grounds of around 13.7 acres.

      The gardens lie to the east of the house, with a gravelled terrace leading around the house to a eating terrace adjoining the kitchen and a sweeping lawn, with land that runs to the east and widens to the south, bordering with the River Welland.

      The land is accessed by a second set of double gates to the north of the house, with access to the yard, with the large 32' insulated steel portal framed building. The stables are well placed for access to the fields, which are level.

      Whilst there are no public rights of way crossing the property, there are service rights to access the private drainage system.

    I love this property's setting and can just imagine the sun rises over the land and sunsets over the house. Whilst I like this house as it is, with its large rooms and showcased views and settings well, but the enacted planning consent permits a fabulous standout dwelling in this marvellous setting.
