About this property

  • We are pleased to present a highly attractive Grade II listed property built in approximately 1680 and extended sympathetically in the 1980s.

    Totalling almost 2,400ft, the house boasts a spacious drawing room, sitting room and dining room to the ground floor. A large hallway also includes a downstairs cloakroom and leads through to the kitchen, with pantry and utility room towards the rear. The first floor is served by two staircases and an exceptionally spacious landing could also be a perfect place to study. There is an impressive principal suite with dressing area and en suite bathroom. Bedroom two and bedroom three share a family bathroom, with ample storage both on the landing and in bedroom three.

    The garden is beautifully thought through with lawn, flowering plants, trees, mature shrubs and a greenhouse which could be complemented by a vegetable patch too. There is a garage with private parking in front and off-street. A second garage adjoins two workshops towards the northerly boundary which are ripe for conversion. Planning has been granted to convert this into an ancillary annexe. For more details and progress please use the following application number on Rutland County Council's website: 2022/0748/LBA.

What a picture! The garden has been looked after in such beautiful detail, it's truly a pleasure to walk around. The Sephora tree in particular is just divine.
