Grade II listed early 20th century Arts & Crafts cottage with beautiful views over Hambleton Village, with three bedrooms and potential for annexe subject to planning consent
This very lovely early 20th century Arts & Crafts cottage has beautiful views over Hambleton village church and is in a fabulous setting for enjoying the scenery and ample leisure opportunities of Rutland Water. The property is Grade II-listed and has retained much of its former character as the original village Post Office, including signage, ornate windows and a fabulous front door, whilst being renovated to a very high standard by the owners who have used the property as a holiday let. Of particular note is the kitchen/diner, with its range cooker (Neptune Kitchen) and ample storage, and the attractive radiators which complement the history of this truly special home.
The accommodation comprises an entrance hallway/dining room with cloakroom/WC, family room, sitting room, kitchen/diner and cellar. Upstairs there are three good-size bedrooms and a modern bathroom. There is also a useful potential annexe, with electricity and plumbing, which is as yet undeveloped (planning was granted for refurbishment, this has expired, plans available).
The house has excellent kerb appeal with many of the original elements of the Post Office remaining and a red telephone box (now defibrillator) outside. There is on street parking available and a fabulous enclosed garden which features a south-facing terrace, small trees and shrubs and lovely views over the village church.
Services: Mains electricity, water and drainage.

This is a wonderful cottage in an enviable location in Hambleton Village on Rutland Water peninsular. The property has been sympathetically refurbished still keeping its charm and period features. The views of Rutland Water from the village are outstanding with wonderful walks and other pursuits on your doorstep!James Abbott
